If you don't know it yet you should read this esign document by Eppcott


What is this Guide?

This Guide guides you to the world of Lojban Quest (which is inside The Lojban MOO and tells you about what you can do there and how you can do it.

The Guide assumes you use Lojban as your MOO language. If you prefer English, see LojbanQuest: English Tutorial

How to get there

You log into The Lojban MOO as you'd usually do and go to le skami xanri bo munje krasi (the starting area). This is the place you first start out. it's description reads something like this:

~pp~.i do zvati le skami xanri bo munje krasi

.i curve lo ka manku gi'e smaji .i do zvati le canre xaskoi poi se lamji le bifcau xamsi .i la'e di'u nenri lo na'e se tcila manku .i le cmalu ke mudri fagri cu cpana le canre .i lei

fulta je te gusni lerfu cu cusku lu

fi'i vitke be fi le ba'o nu zasti fa lo sutra sezyze'a lo ka mencre kei kei ko .e'o rivbi lo nu cpedu lo rinka be lo dubna'e .i ko zanfri lo vitno

.i mu'o mi'e le kurji

li'u .i berti fa lo zirpu rokci dinju noi simlu lo ka mutce tolci'o gi'e censa

.i le jbofi'e patxu .e le se kufra stizu .e le titnanba .e le jbosisri'i cnebo jadni cupra .e la jbofi'e cu zvati

.i pluta le snanu .e le stuna .e le stici .e le berti .e le gapru

~/pp~

To get to the LojbanQuest world you use an Amulet, which you can aquire with the following command:

pilno le jbosisri'i cnebo jadni cupra

~pp~.i do cu cpacu le cnebo jadni le jbosisri'i cnebo jadni cupra

.i .e'u sai ko pilno zo tcita lo nu ba frili pilno le cnebo jadni~/pp~

Now put the amulet on in order to get to the Lojban Quest world: dasni le jadni pe mi

~pp~.i do cu co'a dasni le cnebo jadni

.i do co'a lojbo damba

.i do cu canci ne'i le gusni be fi le cnebo jadni be vo'a se ka'a lo banli fasnu po la jbosisri'i~/pp~

Congratulations! You are now in LQ World!

How to get back to the normal World

You just have to stop wearing the amulet, like so: de'a dasni le jadni pe mi

~pp~.i do cu co'u dasni le cnebo jadni

.i do co'u lojbo damba

.i do cu canci le tumla po la jbosisri'i ne'i le gusni be fi le cnebo jadni be vo'a~/pp~

What you can do in here

You can fight!

You might have noticed, that there are two evil persons in the room you're in: the palci spero (evil esperantist) and the palci gerku (evil dog)

As they are both evil they both deserve to get a little spanking, don't you think? ;)

The combat System

Combat in LQ world is based completely around Lojban. You attack other people and enemies using Lojban sentences. You form those with words out of your wordbags.

Wordbags

Wordbags contain the words you can shoot at your enemies - so called Wordshots.

See what you've got! ma valsi

~pp~.i do ponse le cmavo po'u zoi zoi.

cu #5 1 do #5 1 le #10 1 mi #5 1 nu #5 1

se #5 1

.zoi .i do ponse 35 cmavo .i do zifre lo nu ponse 100 cmavo

.i do ponse le gismu po'u zoi zoi.

cmalu #2 4 cusku #3 1 klama #3 4 mutce #3 3 tavla #2 5

zvati #2 4

.zoi .i do ponse 15 gismu .i do zifre lo nu ponse 50 gismu~/pp~

that's not terribly much, is it? oh well!

The numbers behind the # show how many wordshots you got of a word and the number next to that is the amount of damage a word will cause under normal circumstances.

You have means of getting more of those Wordshots, but we'll talk about that later on.

actually attacking

The command for attacking is gunta cusku lu spell li'u enemy

let's go ahead and give the snobbish esperantist a little punch, shall we?

gunta cusku lu do mutce tavla mi li'u le palci spero

~pp~.i do cu makfa gunta cusku lu do mutce tavla mi li'u le palci spero fi'o xrani se klani li 10

.i .oi ro'o le palci spero cu makfa gunta cusku lu di'u ba go'i i mutce li'u do fi'o xrani se klani li 11

.i do bredi lo nu makfa cusku fi'o se damba le palci spero~/pp~

woops, that wasn't so good! let's have a look at how much beating we can still take!

looking at the stats

using the command vlipa ma reveals our stats:

~pp~.i li 1 cu ni do sutra .i li 189 ca'a ni do kanro .i li 200 cu traji lo ka ke'a ni do kanro .i li 0 cu ni do solji rupnu ponse~/pp~

1 is our speed - determining for example how many baddies we can fight at the same time without trouble - 189 out of 200 is our remaining health and 0 is our amount of money.

Healing

before we jump back into combat we should try to get healthy again. fortunately wordshots are not only good for hurting, but also for healing:

Another look into our wordbag and we come up with a sentence to heal ourselves:

kanro cusku lu le klama cu mutce cmalu li'u mi

~pp~.i do cu makfa kanro bo zenba cusku lu le klama cu mutce cmalu li'u do fi'o kanro se klani li 13

.i .oi ro'o le palci spero cu makfa gunta cusku lu zvati ko'a li'u do fi'o xrani se klani li 8

.i do bredi lo nu makfa cusku fi'o se damba le palci spero~/pp~

woops, ouch! looks like the evil esperantist didn't like our attempt at becoming all healthy again! That's because we're still fighting the evil esperantist and healing used up one of our turns :(

Getting new words - The Chest Game

After a few turns of fighting and healing our wordbag wentp retty dry, didn't it?

Let's get a few more. You might have noticed that there is also a chest lying around: le cipra tanxe

it contains all the words we'd ever want!

pilno le cipra tanxe

~pp~ko cuxna se pi'o lu cuxna li ny li'u to ny cu jufra namcu toi fi di'e fe pa jufra poi do krici lo du'u lo remna cu finti ke'a

1 mai te megdo patlu porto

2 mai xrabo xrabo xrabo mi

3 mai rakso fa pai lanka

4 mai te narge kobli pruni

5 mai lunsa fi pai navni~/pp~

number 3 seems quite human-ish!

cuxna li 3

~pp~.i .u'u na remna jufra~/pp~

oops :( let's try that again: cuxna li 2

~pp~.i .ui dai do cu snada~/pp~

cool!

ma valsi

~pp~.i do ponse le cmavo po'u zoi zoi.

cu #4 1 do #3 1 fi #1 2 le #8 1 mi #4 1

nu #5 1 pai #1 59 se #4 1

.zoi .i do ponse 30 cmavo .i do zifre lo nu ponse 100 cmavo

.i do ponse le gismu po'u zoi zoi.

zvati #2 4

.zoi .i do ponse 18 gismu .i do zifre lo nu ponse 50 gismu~/pp~

that's awesome! now we're really strong with those 59 damage words!
