The Manor of Dr. Montgomery IV

Post by CluedoKid » Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:51 pm

The year is 1927...

Your name is Andrew Harrington, you are 18 years old and still live with your mother Mrs. Charlotte Harrington. Your father passed away 5 years ago. You have yet to be married and frankly...you are a loser. That is until your mother had kindly found an opportunity for work from her wealthy old friend Dr. Montgomery IV. Thus, he has invited you at his mansion during a get together will his club....


This is a Choose-Your-Path game. At the end of each peice of the story, I will provide several actions on which you may choose your own path.......Shall we begin??

-------------------------------------------------------------------

The cab from the station takes up to the arch leading into the small town of Moonpoint. The air outside of the cab is rather damp and cold as you feel a chill. You forgot your coat. Maybe you could by one at the general store. You pay the nice cab driver and await your destiny and bear the chilly air. Or are you nervous? In any case...Here goes nothing Andrew!

Enter Moonpoint

Turn around and go back (NO!)

Not being married at 18 makes someone a loser?

This is the 20's, plus you can speculate his lifestyle.

You are walking down the street of the little town of Moonpoint. Yet to you, since it's night time, most of the stores are closed and locked. You find this rather annoying since the General Store is also closed so you realize you wont be getting that jacket you really wanted. Shame. You continue walking as your shoes click clack against the pavement. Sadly also, the food store appears to be closed as well. Perhaps the Doctor will be serving food anyway. Your quite hungry! However the store across, the bookstore, apparently looks to be the only place open still. Ah you begin to see other people besides yourself now. Standing next to the bookstore is a squat skinny little elderly man impeccably dressed. Next to the locked food store is a larger also elderly man with a scraggly beard, who looks a tad forbidding in your opinion. You wonder if you have the courage to talk to complete strangers at this time of night....

Btw, I changed the rule from only being allowed to go once in a row to being able to go anytime you wish.

You open the door to the quaint little bookstore. A little bell above the door greets your arrival. The room itself smells like cookies and tea. The air is much warmer in here and so is the atmosphere. You wonder why you went into the bookstore in the first place, but then you figure it's no reason at all but to look around. There is a kindly old man at the back who greets you warmly. ...

You walk up to the bookstore owner, you see he's a lanky old man with spectacles and a shiny bald head...


"Hello?" You ask, "Are you the man who sells the books?"


"Books?" He replies, "We don't sell books here! Sorry."

"Then what are those?" You demand.


"Oh these!!! " Says the man, " Oh these...books yes. You are in the right place"

Ask him a question (You may write what question Andrew should ask)

You ask, "May I read a book please?"


"Young man", said the bookkeeper, " Of course you may read a book, I would love it however if you bought one too! Make me ends meet!"

You are back out onto the streets. The air is cold again. It seems the short man has left. But the gruff man is still out there...
