    The Motley Two - A Text Adventure (On Hiatus, For Reals)

    Mirror, for easy archive access!

    And a TvTropes page!

    And fanart!


    A lone troll stares through his window, launching a disdainful glare across the lawnring at his neighbor.

    He knows she's watching him. She's always watching him.

    But we'll get to all of that later. First off...

    What is this young troll's name?

    Re: The Motley Two - A Text Adventure

    Your name is TALIES HEORIA. You thoroughly enjoy THE MARTIAL ARTS.

    And that's not a semi-euphemism, either. You use ART for MARTIAL PURPOSES.

    Your walls are covered with testaments to this fact. Every square inch bears another page with some scribbling or other on it, records of your futile and numerous attempts to dredge up DESIGNS for the Alternian Fleet's WRITER-MAGES.

    Magic is real, in case you were wondering.

    You hope one day to be accepted into their ranks. If you are, you will be among the many who enscribe the multitude of warships with the symbols that allow INTERSTELLAR TRAVEL. You'll also be one of the few who made it in with a cybernetic implant. A ROBOTIC EYE, to be exact.

    You've got a computer, of course. You rarely use it for anything other than purely frivolous DIGITAL ART and the occasional INTERPERSONAL COMMUNIQUE.

    Your online handle is memeticMutant and you like to change up your text color from time to time.

    Today is an auspicious day, as it marks the tenth anniversary of your WRIGGLING DAY, and the one fantastical night of the solar sweep in which the ALTERNIAN RECRUITADORS land their ships all around the world and take of-age trolls and their Lusii protectors to be trained in the ART OF WAR.

    Not that they hadn't been training from birth, that is.

    But all of this excitement is overridden by the one constant in your life. Her.

    You and your NEIGHBOR have been rivals since you settled in this lawnring. You've sparred on more occasions than it is sensible to discuss, and you can't help but despair at the fact that, barring some freak medical accident, you two will undoubtedly be assigned to the same Recruitador ship, and likewise, to the same Alternian Battlecruiser.

    It pains you to think that, if her hive were a few more miles farther away than it is, she would be in a different recruitment area, and she'd be someone else's problem in two days. But it's not, so she isn't, so she won't be.

    You are destined to hate each other forever. But secretly, you sort of have the hots for her.


    As we pan over to her perspective, I'll need you to refresh my memory. What was her name again?

    Your name is KAOGIN LISREY. You thoroughly enjoy the MARTIAL ARTS.

    No, seriously. Chops. Kicks. Swinging a sword. You're all into that.

    You aspire to join the Alternian Leigon of SPELL-WARRIORS, a sect of the military almost as old as the species itself.

    No, magic is not real. It's just a specially-calibrated series of sword movements that somehow has incredible effects that trollkind hasn't yet oh good lord you don't have time for this.

    Your respiteblock is thoroughly utilitarian, though a cunning examineur would realize that it has been optimized for home defense. No one gets out once they break in. In the corner is the COMPUTER you've used and abused for sweeps on end.

    Your online handle is warriorWidow and you usually forego punctuation I mean if the words speak for themselves why bother right

    Today is a very special day for you. Besides being two days away from your permanent escape from this miserable gray planet, today is the day you make sure your closest neighbor and ARCH-RIVAL, TALIES HEORIA, never will.

    Today is the day Talies Heoria dies.

    Phase one starts NOW.

    OPEN CHATLOG:


    It begins.

    Well, you would. But it's not exactly pink. It's, well... This is going to take some explanation.

    Your blood is not pink. In fact, you've really told no one what it is. Like your rainbow rumpus archenemy, you are an anonymist, a troll who refuses to disclose their blood color. Your text and emblem are colored magenta, a color that, technically speaking, does not exist.

    Stay with me as I backpedal from that incredibly false-sounding statement.

    The hemospectrum can be quickly brought up on any Alternian mainframe. The rule is simple: if you're farther up than the other guy, you're better than him. But, looking at this, one eventually notices that magenta (not pink) does not appear on the hemospectrum, nor the spectrum of visible light. That is because, as I said, it does not exist.

    When the Troll brain recieves light signals from a source that is equal parts red and violet, it has a choice to make. It can decrypt the information as the color that is directly midway between the two, green, or it can make one up that looks a heck of a lot more like it belongs in between the two.

    Magenta has proven useful to claim as your own. You've alternatively been deferred to with respect worthy of an empress, and given strange looks as if you just crawled out of a hole in the ground.

    It also manages to pull double-duty as a message for anti-royalists, as well. "Hey, world, look at this! I think the Empress is a few steps below a reddie!"

    You don't actually say that, of course. You have survival to worry about. You may be an anonymous-colored twit, but you're not stupid.

    Anyway, all of this was to say, no. Sorry. No contemplation of superiority can be done here.



    ....What were we talking about?

    That is an amusing thought. If Talies's blood truly had an INCREDIBLE ABUNDANCE OF TINGE, it would be both rather tragic and quite ironic in ways you'd rather not expound on.


    But anyway. You need to get your stuff together. The idiot won't kill himself, after all.

    As we said before, your pictures line the walls. Most of them do nothing. Some of them do things you don't know. The ones that actually do stuff are either useless or locked away in a lead-lined cabinet in the corner. There is no middle ground.

    At the far end from the window is the door to your room. You hear growling sounds from somewhere downstairs.

    Sounds like Benlot's hungry again.

    As you make your way to the main foyer of your hive, you note the skittering, low-slung form attempting to snatch the last of the trolljubees off the top of your thermal hull. After some light chastening, you pat him on the head and send him skittering out of the room.

    That's Benlot, by the way. Your lusus. He's a beetlebeast, and a big one too. In two days, he will undergo training to become your BRAVE AND MIGHTY STEED. But until then, he's just a giant omnivorous soporhead.

    You walk outside, inspecting the field that stands between your and Kaogin's hives. It's a long plain, accurately described as 100 yards. Unfortunately, yards are an as-yet nonexistent unit of measurement.

    >Kaogin: Inspect room.
    Your room is Spartan, in the most Spartan sense of the word. If Spartans existed, you'd certainly have been first in line to join up. You've got your MULTIPLE REDUNDANT BACKUP SWORDS on a rack above your recuperacoon, and your computer, like we said. I don't think you grasped how comprehensive our previous summation was.

    Kaogin: Allocate Strife Specibus
    You've already got that taken care of. Your specibi are, in order of priority, SABREKIND, FISTKIND, and FOOTKIND.

    Martial arts and all that.

    Oh goodie. The voices again. Sometimes you wish you had a different psychic power. A different, more useful psychic power. Or nothing. Anything but INTERDIMENSIONAL COMMUNICATION.

    Feeling rather indecisive all of the sudden, you make your way out the back door, to the 14-foot-tall cage concealed flawlessly behind your hive. Chained to the bars is your lusus. She's a GIANT PREYING MANTID, and a rather large specimen of such. Before she matured into the killing machine she is today, she was rather nice to keep around. As it stands, she's a menace to you and everyone around you.

    In two days, she will undergo training to become your BRAVE AND MIGHTY STEED. Before now, however, she's just been a giant liability.

    But you've got this plan, you see. It's a very cunning, very diabolical plan. And a certain monstrous insect plays a critical part.

    You undo the locks as you leave. Phase two is complete.

    You've timed it all perfectly. Your lusus will only realize she's free about the time your fight with Talies nears a draw, as it has so many other times. When he tries his friendly "doh-ho better luck next time I guess" bullcrap, your lusus will charge out at the two of you and, hopefully, listen to you when you command her to eat him.

    It is the perfect crime.
