I love how you can make the 2D-graphics work for you, like "he's wearing a brown cowboy hat". :)

Yeah, that was quite clever on Quaker2k9's part. :D

SPOILERS, don't read if you worry about that sort of thing.









I got to the part with the hostage situation after figuring out the riddle that the kidnappers had sent (only afterward learning I didn't need to solve the riddle at all).  At the place I couldn't find ANY SIGN of the kidnapee or any hostiles.  Not in the bar, not anywhere.  I went directly from the bar, where I met the contact that told me about the kidnapping, to my ship, took off, spent a long time going to Bounty, and nothing after that.  I didn't flirt with the contact, but I presume that doesn't have an impact on the progression to the endgame.

Also, my character's a chick, so the constant gender references were a bit distracting.  Not sure if there's any way around that, though.

The quest was made before the realease of v0.6.6, or I think that's the version where the new bases and systems were added. The riddle and text is wrong now becuase Alisdar Mor was added. Cross out any new bases, count again, and you'll be right on the track.

Seeing my name mistyped makes my skin crawl - just call me Pell.

The source is available. One could either update it or just sneak peek at it.

Hmmm. With the new releases, the quests need to be updated. I remember GLI saying something about my Hitman quest after  one of the previous updates came out.

Finished this, at least with one of the endings. Some of the subject matter was hopelessly puerile, but it manages to be one of the more interesting and varied of the quests I've played so far. Intricate and technically interesting branches, even if the goofy sexual stuff, in my opinion, detracted from the overall experience.

I'm especially appreciative of some of the touches you had, Quaker2k9, after trying to code a quest myself and having some real trouble trying to codify the simple framework I have in my head.  I'm hoping someday someone'll make a simple rubric you can enter ideas into and it'll pop out the code. I guess I need to practice more.

I wasn't able to finish. I went to the 8th base in alphabetical order (Bounty right?) and nothing happened.

Yeah sorry, I wrote the quest at a time when there were less bases in the ASCII Sector universe so the riddle is totally misleading now. I ought to update it. The place you're supposed to go to is BPD-89.
Retros tick me off!

Just finished the quest. (Had to waste 60 days cause I was banned from chi-chi 1) and I got the 'special item'.  Sad part is I lost it when I tried to use it. :(

Say La V!

p.s.  I killed her.  Boot to the face.
