The Catacombs

Though most MUSHes are all text-based, Mr. Wizard got a little oxygen-deprived one night and came up with a system for a 3-D ASCII-driven mini-adventure, much like you find in the computer adventure games Bard's Tale, Wizardry and Might and Magic.

The Catacombs is a 173 location adventure with ASCII pictures as 'descriptions.' The entire catacomb is located in one room, and is controlled by two objects and made complete with 8 exits. Mr. Wizard is pretty sure this is the first of its kind and it has attracted a modest amount of interest.

The current version is very 'bare.' The goal is to find the two hidden messages (conveniently written on walls here and there), and that's about it. Future versions of The Catacombs will likely have monsters which you can fight, monsters that you can have oily groping battles with, and probably a couple other groovy things. Mr. Wizard is too busy trying to seduce your grandparents right now to worry about specifics. The Catacombs can be found in the Game Room Suite, just off of Wherever.

They look something like this.....
