Cool idea but my head kinda hurts, haha. Let's see how it turns out, shall we?

Pollywog also has two options leading to the same post number, unless that was intended, ie. teach Cassandra a lesson by splitting up to find Jimmy

Yes, you not only have to search through to find what directs to your post, but you also have to make sure that you're directing to a post that makes sense. If someone else says that post 12 is walking into a bedroom to look for a killer, and you say post 12 is going ice skating in switzerland, it'd be kind of hard for poster 12 to do anything that made sense.

That being said, I'm assuming posts like "Post 17: You are eaten by a grue. The end." are not allowed?

I haven't participated in this yet, but would it make sense for someone to maybe set up a wikispaces for it. New bits could still be posted in the forum, but that way the cross referencing would all be in place and it would be easy to keep track of what numbers have and haven't been used yet.

Or am I just spoiling the idea.

Fixed, with random number selection to keep poster number 13 on their toes.

:) I posted mine first. I'll edit mine, THIS time. But you better stay on YOUR toes, bud :P

Also, whoever does post 6: Make the beginning ambiguous so that it works with both the first couple posts (where post 6 is splitting up from the truck) and post 5 (where post 6 is leaving Cassandra). Don't mention the truck, the time of day, or the tent or anything.

I'd do it but I'm pressed for time right this second and only came online for a minute.

Put up a new one. It's a bit short, but if you give me ideas I will edit it.
