More material for PerlMonks text adventureby cavac (Deacon)
|on Jun 25, 2012 at 20:04 UTC||Need Help??|
cavac has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm currently writing a (rather small) text adventure that plays out in the monastery.
I don't want to give you the story yet, it's gonna be a surprise (a good one, i hope).
The adventure is a bit tongue-in-cheek and i still need a few famous real or fictional Monastery characters to liven up the scenes. One real person is already included in a major role (no, i wont tell who). Also, i got the reaper and the vote fairy.
So, any contenders? What i'm searching for:
For any such person i'd like a short reasoning or link to one or more articles that made them (in)famous ;-)
Also welcome are links to any famous and "special" posts here in PerlMonks. I'm on the lookout for more insider jokes and such.
Update 2012-07-02: This will take a little longer than planned. During a slight disagreement with my bicycle (which i lost), i broke my left forearm near the elbow. I might be able to release a small preview of the adventure in a couple of weeks, but i can't promise anything, except that the project is still alive.
