Game Description

Title:A Path of Adventure
Players: 6
Mode: Tabletop

All things come to an end. And so it is with the adventure that started so long ago when Miss Trees went missing on an aeroplane.

Life at the Carlos Cory School for Gifted Orphans was not a bed of roses; the academic regimen was punishing and the discipline was worse, but at least the surroundings were pleasant. Set in one hundred, fifty acres of idyllic Californian countryside, the Carlos Cory School for Gifted Orphans offered a chance in life to those children who are so often failed by the modern world. But now it is gone. No sooner had you laid eyes on the benefactor that nobody had seen for years and her freckled companion than you were bundled out with scarcely time to pack and stuffed into two broken down old coaches. After the first couple of days even the old songs dried up. And then things got really … odd. There was a ship with masts and sails. You were only on it for a few days but this must be Europe, because nowhere in the USA is this old. You've yet to see or even hear a motor car since you got here. There are horses though, lots of them, producing lots of stuff that would be great for the rose-beds back home. Home, which was grand if a little draughty, and not bare and dirty like the half-timbered warehouse you find yourselves in. The teachers seem as confused as the pupils. Something is going on though; the city around you is bustling with it. When the principle asks for volunteers, for most of the pupils it may just be a chance to find out what is going on. And for those few who have some idea, it is a chance to be a part of it.

Way back in the 1970s, Richard Stallman (rms) created the GNU project in reaction to the commercialization of software, which was taking away the cooperative world that he was used to. Over the years more and more applications were added to GNU until it became an entire operating system. Finally all it needed was the "kernel". Linus Tolvalds created that and called it Linux. Today what we call Linux is almost entirely built on the back of the GNU project.

EMACS is a text editor written in 1976 by Stallman as the first part of the GNU project. For many years there was a text file in with the distribution with several recipes for cookies. Unfortunately it was removed in 2014 so it is now apocryphal and I include it here. The file itself is here:

But I will also expound on the first and original recipe in the file which I find makes fantastic cookies and requires a great amount of fun since it makes so many. You need a huge bowl, or even two, and you need to have a production-line process to cook them, which is a great caper. Unlike lesser recipes, you won't eat them all in the first evening either.

This is not a full recipe's worth

Katie’s journal, October 1986

The call through our crystals came when Victoria and I were in class. We both did the same thing, our hands shot up, and we said we needed to go to the toilet. Victoria was quick enough to change it to ‘I need to take Katie to the toilet’, which is kind of weird, but we got out anyway. It was Harryn who had called us, and as we hurried to the groundskeeper’s cottage Victoria realised we had a bit of a wait on our hands, so we could have stayed in class. It would be a while before Dave and Harmony would be back at the school.
