View Full Version : EscapeMI Survivor

11-23-2002, 04:49 PM
Going back to an old topic, originally devised by NiKo, it's EscapeMI Survivor!!!
We shall start with, ooh, shall we say, the first 7 who step up to play? That includes me, because I also want to play.
What happens is that the Taskmaster, who shall be me to begin with, sets a challenge to all of the contestants
The task could be, for example, create a new costume for Guybrush to wear. Then all of the contestants would create something for Guybrush to wear within a time limit. The Taskmaster does not enter. Then the contestants would PM the Taskmaster with their take on which entry they think was best.
The person with the most votes becomes the Taskmaster for the next round; the person with the least votes leaves the game.
If we have a tie at either the top or the bottom, the Taskmaster gets to decide between the contestants who tied as to who gets immunity / leaves the game.
The next 6 people to apply to play shall go into the first round of EscapeMI Survivor. After we have all the contestants, the first task shall be set by me.

OK, that's seven:
Neil Joshi

OK, everyone except me; inspired by ZeroXcape:
Write a funny intro for a new MI game. You can make it as long or short as you like.

You have until Wednesday 27th November to do this. If only a couple of people post theirs, you have until Friday to do it. When you have finished the task, post it in this topic. Then a vote shall commence to determine a winner/loser.
You are not allowed to vote for yourself.
Have fun.

The beginning starts out, Guybrush and elaine are sailing with a large crew to an island, of course it was Guybrush's idea so infact HE wanted to gotto Phatt island and gamble all his money. But Elaine was in control of Guybrush, so they were instead going to The home of the Voodoo lady (She moved again), It's on an Island called Tingafer Island.

Part 1 - To The Tingar

First they needed to get to the island and Guybrush happend to misplace the map when looking for the Television guide. Elaine of course sent Guybrush to find it. The crew wasn't being much helpful, but he was able to get some hints. There was a bar on the lower deck. With a collection of items like a stool leg, a pin, a key, some grog, and more he is able to get to the room witht he map and ward of the rats to get to it.
When he gives the map to Elaine, she noticed how far they veered off course much. She told Guybrush that he needs to turn the tail thingy on the ship maunually to turn back. He goes back to the bottom haul of the ship and opens a small door. Turns the ship tail thingy and falls out. Being dragged at the end of the ship. Uses a rope to get back up.

Part 2 - It Was His Fault

When they reach the shores or Tingafer they meet up with a strange, smelly old man. He tells them that the voodoo lady made him a love potion forhis wife. Guybrush rudely asks why the person he's married to needs to fall in love with him. The old man becomes mad, showing his true colors, the Demon-Zombie-Ghost-Statue Pirate LeChuck. He says that this love potion was for Elaine. LeChuck ignores Guybrush for a moment and is about to use it on Elaine When Guybrush cautiously pokes the bottle in LeChuck's hand with the stool leg. LeChuck not noticing, drops it and hit his feet, cracking and the goo oozes onto Guybrushes feet. Since some of the potion hit LeChuck himself, it confused the voodoo code, causing the essences of everyone neer to change. (In the backround a parrot in a tree and a monkey change for to a monkey with wings and a parrot beak, we'll see it later). Guybrush stayed the same but LeChuck turned hopelessly in love with....GUYBRUSH?!

What? WHAT?! :p

oh well, i'll just watch then...:)

or u can start another one, and let me join (but it ll have to b next week - vacation!)

11-26-2002, 12:15 PM
Okay, heres my intro.

The game starts out with Guybrush in the middle of a fierce battle on board his ship. Elaine is atop the main sail, tied there screaming "Help me, Guybrush! Help!" Guybrush screams "I'll save you, Elaine!" Guybrush continues to swordfight, uttering insults like "Die, you meddling sea monkey, you! Ha! You fight like a cow! Try THIS on for size, you cross dressing manly man!" Guybrush turns away and climbs to the main sail and unties Elaine. He takes her in his arms and swings across the opposing ship and comes face to face with a ruthless looking pirate captain. Guybrush draws his sword and says, "Dance, partner.". All you see next is Guybrush standing on deck waving a mop around like a sword. Elaine is behind him with her arms folded, looking surley. Guybrush shouts "HA! Take that, villian! HO HO! Never cross paths with Guybrush Threepwood! The man who took on three hordes of angry kowalas!" You see the crew, bored stupid from Guybrush's story, snoring in front of him. Elaine says"Guybrush, that never happened." "Come on, sweety. You remember old Purple-Tinted Black-Eyed No-Nosed Nearly-Dead Captain EvilPants!" "Uh-huh, sure sweety. You get back to mopping, okay? I think you've bored the crew enough."
"But--" "Guybruuuush!" "Yes, dear."

11-26-2002, 02:04 PM
Who am i? you sure you want to know.
If somebody told you i was just an average ordinary pirate, not a care in the world...

...someone's been reading my diary journal.

a black sky is shown, stars are dotted around the screen. suddenly a fanfare or trumpets and horns blow an epic melody. yes, you know whats coming.

from the bottom of the screen and flying into the void of space at the center of the screen are the words reading

Monkey Island
Episode V
Revenge of the Monkey
Guybrush and Elaine, after finally defeating lechuck give the melee island governing powers to elaine's newly found grandfather
Horatio Toquamada marley
with the world as their oyster, guybrush and Elaine set out to be real pirates, facing the open seas and fighting other swashbucklers.
but could their dreams be coming to an end as they find out about lechucks living form? will they ever find the secret of monkey island? will it help them finally defeat lechuck? and will Grandpa marley ever find any pants? only time will tell...

the camera pans down to find a ship. guybrush is in the captians quarter lieing on his bed with elaine.

he is writing his diary journal whilst elaine jots down fighting plans. one couldn't expect them to do anything else in bed together. guybrush writes.

'three days at sea now with my honeybun and still no change. she still wan'ts us to find the secret of monkey island as she is sure it will help us defeat lechuck. after finding out that lechuck is still alive and kicking (or at least kicking me, that really hurt) we figured it was about time we tried to kill him once and for all before he tried to kill me again and take elaine as his bride. we both agreed that the secret of monkey island was the key to his power (or at least elaine agreed and i just followed on, it's always best when married to someone who could break you arm ni three different places without leaving her seat)

we've set out to monkey island in the hope of finding someone who may be able to help (good idea considering this island is meant to be uninhabited, but never mind, herman toothrot will probably be there. oh wait.)

11-26-2002, 07:45 PM
Nice NEil, but we already KNOW the secret of Monkey Island :D
Remember, Giant Monkey Robot.

Voodoo Lady in MI1 : I see a giant monkey, i see you inside the giant monkey.

That could have just been the giant monkey head she meant but, bleah!
Anyways, the cutscene witht he giant monkey robot was even labeled: "The REAL Secret of Monkey Island".

Hehe, sorry :p.

11-27-2002, 06:15 AM
read the artical on worlofmi, it'll explain about teh secret. and i am pretty sure that the secret of monkey island isn't a giant mnokey robot, i didn't liek that idea, it has to be something more sinister and darkt han that, otherwise it's just boring.

Al-back from the BigWhoop
11-27-2002, 06:38 AM
(PS - isnt the monkey head the secret because its big whoop AND a giant robot AND its also the Ultimated Insult stuff?)

btw- this aint off topic, its a comment on a story

11-27-2002, 04:30 PM
OK, deadline extended until Friday; and Al, please don't post off-topic comments.

The Return Of The Attack Of The Monkey Island Menace Strikes Back

[Scene: Guybrush standing outside the governor's mansion alone on a clear, sunny day with suitcases in either hand]
Guybrush - *Taking in a breath of salty air* "Ah, back on Melee yet again. Now to get back to the open arms of my lovely wife Elaine"
*He pushes open the door to the mansion and is greeted with nothing but silence*
Guybrush - "Where's the surprise party for the tri-island area's swash-buckling-ist pirate. I was looking forward to grog-jello and ice cre.."
*He stops mid-thought as a cry breaks the air. But it isn't the usual cry of a damsel in distress or a zipper accident, it sounds like...a baby*

Guybrush - "Elaine!? Are you here?"
Elaine - "Guybrush honey. I'm in the bedroom, come quick"
*As he runs towards the master bedroom, Guybrush's head swims with thoughts. 'What was the mysterious crying?' 'Why is Elaine in the bedroom?' 'What is she wearing?'*
*Stepping into the room his jaw drops*
Elaine - "Guybrush, say hello to little Hermy, your son"
*Camera spins to Elaine sitting on the bed cradling a small baby boy*
Guybrush - "What? How? When? Is it mine?"
Elaine - "Of course he is dear, (I think) now come and say hello"
*He crosses the room towards the tiny person with curly golden looks and bubbling blue eyes*
Guybrush - "Hey there little fella, I'm your dadda, can ya say dadda"
Elaine - "Guybrush, he's 2 days old"
Guybrush - "Well, maybe's he's got my brains"
Elaine - *under her breath* "Let's hope not"
Guybrush - "What's that snugglebumps?"
Elaine - "Er, nothing. Anyway, I was hoping you'd be back for the birth"
Guybrush - "Yeah sorry about that I kinda got side-tracked in a dungeon on Phatt but I'm back now"
Elaine - "Yep and I couldn't be happier, because I need you to do something for me..."
Guybrush - "What is it honey? What piratey adventure do you want me to embark on? Recover a stolen treasure? Defeat people with funny accents?"
Elaine - "Actually I need you to babysit Hermy while I go take care of some business down at the docks"
*And with that she passes the baby into his arms and is out of the house before Guybrush has time to think (which, let's face it could have happened if she had crawled out)*

Guybrush - "Right, erm, what am I supposed to do? Ok, you sit here and I'll go get you some food"
*He places Hermy down on the table and heads into the kitchen, emerging 2 minutes later with one of his famous sausage and apple sandwhiches*
Guybrush -"Boy are you gonna love thi...Hermy? Where is he?"
*Camera pans empty room and then zooms into Guybrush's face*
Guybrush - "Oh boy..."

*Cut to first game scene - Guybrush trying to find Hermy in the mansion*

woot! woot! im psyched! im psyched!

12-04-2002, 12:47 PM
so i'm guessing Murta has to set the task ni this thread then, considering you closed the last one.

12-04-2002, 03:02 PM
OK I want you guys to design a new bad guy for the MI series. You must include a picture and a description (name, background and his/her plan). It will be judged on the overall merit of the character, so even if you suck at graphics you still stand a chance. I'm giving you until next Wednesday (unless Feral has a better deadline)

12-04-2002, 05:18 PM
His name is Zerkinh. If Came all the way from Poland just to find Mle Island. He was breed from fruits gone bad, mud, pit bulls, a little bit of rats and Ralph Wiggums arm, PURE EVIL CREATURE WAS BORN (except the arm part.) There is a hidden Jewl under meathooks island. The jewl is known as the Shards of 3 Fingers.
With the jewl Zerkinh can find these three fingers, and when he dgests them, he will become trice as powerful and will continue to sink every island in the Carribean. The Blue Polish Finger was thrust to Scabb Island. The Red Norwegian Finger, was hidden in Blood Island's valcano. The Yellow Finish finger was hidden in Dinky Island, the hardest one too find. Of course Guybrush must find the fingers first and destroy them. Guybrush finds 1 and destroys it. LeChuck steals the one on Dinky Island from Monkey Island, Guybrush and Zerkinh never know. LeChuck plans to use its power to creat his army quicker than ever (in the next sequal). Zerkinh though, find the 3rd and digests it making his tails twice as long and poisonous. Guybrush must fight the pumped enemy now.

12-04-2002, 09:55 PM

Captain Big Belly

There's something terribley wrong with the Carribean Islands!! Scabb and Melee Islands have been taken over by fast food, video rental, and convenience stores!!! The only thing these mindless stores have in common is one thing: Captain Big Belly, famous big corporation owner and glutton, runs them. Big Belly started in Dinky Island with only a few small stores like;

Belly-Buster - for all your home entertainment needs!
Belly Burger - for all your heart attack needs!
Bellio Shack - for all your electronic needs!

With these stores hes created an insane monopoly and turned Dinky into a GIGANTIC MEGATROPOLIS!!!!! And now he wants the rest of the Carribean! With Captain BB's fashionable Gotee and skirt (ahem, i mean robe) nothing can stop this mega-corporate business man except Guybrush Threepwood!

his name? Mortook!
he is composed of fire and brimstone, he is a demon, one iof lechucks croanies who has been created in the fires of Big Whoop in order to hunt down guybrush and kill him adn then kidnapp elaine and bring her to him. but Mortook has other ideas. created in the fire, but composed in hearts of hell, mortook has a sinister plan to destroy the caribbean with his flamed whip and sword. no one can stop him.

and by the way murta, some people may not be able to show pics for whatever reason (no scanner or way of getting it no the internet). i was lucky i had this online otherwise i'd have had to find some way of getting it online. this may be a little unfair to those who cant.

12-05-2002, 06:10 PM
LeChuck, having been defeated by Guybrush once again, rises back from the dead via a method conveniently explained by the Voodoo Lady.
He gets to thinking about the many, many times he has been thwarted by...Guybrush Threepwood.
Which man knows Guybrush Threepwood more than any other? Who has been with Threepwood throughout his adventures?
Who can LeChuck recruit to help him finally stop Threepwood in his tracks?
LeChuck knows the very man. He is smarter than Guybrush, who knows Guybrush inside and out, and who hates Guybrush?
That man is thus:
Of course! Guybrush as he was in Monkey Island 2! He is much more intelligent than Guybrush is now, he knows him well, he has a cool beard, he doesn't dye his hair, and he would hold an intense hatred and envy of what he has become...the perfect man to help LeChuck be rid of Threepwood once and for all! Muahaha!Muahaha! Muahahahahahahhaaaaa!

12-05-2002, 07:30 PM
OK just waiting for AcrylicGuitar's now and I can get a poll up (or does Feral handle that?)

Anyways, it's a good job NiKo isn't playing 'cos they'd be no contest here in this round :)

12-05-2002, 07:49 PM
Oh and in light of everyone's swift character creation the deadline for AcrylicGuitar is Sunday now, since I don't wanna be waiting a week for one guy

12-06-2002, 06:48 PM
Nah, Murta, you handle the polls

12-06-2002, 07:46 PM
Ok, I'm working on 1 now.....I hope I have it done, since I only go on the computer about 2hrs a day...

12-06-2002, 08:52 PM
(copy and paste link ONLY)

This is Le Noetall:
He is 6'0 A+F wearing zombie, and is a rotting corspe thingy with one abnormally large foot too.
He is evil and will kill anyone in sight with his mighty blade, but deep inside, hes a prep....a pure prep. his mission from the day he was created was to team up with the two most evil forces in the world:
El Pollo Diablo
Le Chuck

to perform the deed of destroying Guybrush and find Big Whoop. But that was 50 years ago, and things have changed...for the worse. 10 years after they made their promise, Le Noetall got locked up in prison for a crime he didnt commit: Steal a packet of ketchup. He was locked up for 40 years, and just busted out to plot out his revenge, on the cops, on his partners, on Guybrush, and...the world.

The End!


12-16-2002, 02:27 PM
This week's task: describe a new island for the MI Universe. You have until Saturday night, 0000 GMT, to enter it.

12-16-2002, 02:52 PM
So that's Sunday morning right? Okay, here's my island.

Pillage Island
The Island of a thousand taverns, Pillage is the tavern capitle of the Tri-Island area. You can't stand on pillage and not see a tavern unless you're on the beach looking out to sea, and even then, only on the west side. The people of Pillage sleep all day and work all night, their day starts when the sun goes down and if anyone isn't in one of their reinforced concrete Bar's at night, they don't deserve to live on the island. And yes, you heard me right, reinforced concrete, they broght over a specialist from Scabb Island to reinforce teh bars should any natural distasters happen like Volcano erruptions, fires or thirty foot tidal waves.
the people of pillage like to plunder and um..., well now i can't think of the word, it goes with plunder, meaning tio steal, anyway, this is what they do and they're proud of it.

this my friends, is Pillage Island.

12-16-2002, 03:13 PM
Alright, to avoid confusion, we'll call it 11:59 PM, Saturday night.

12-19-2002, 04:34 PM
Marley Island

A long time ago, before Herman found monkey Island, he found an island 500 kilometers to the east. It was a small island, but a paradise to anyone. It had fruits of all kinds and everything you can imagine. One thing in particular is there were creatures on the island that looked like :ewok:'s except green. He'd spend months on the island playing with the little :ewok:'s and have fun, then go back home, and come back again. Til, one day, A horrible hurricane came and destroyed the island along with the :ewok:'s. He came back to the island to find that nothing was there. Thats when He went into depression for the rest of his life and become a hermit.

12-19-2002, 06:53 PM
Grokkend Island:

This sister too Blood Island is very mysterious. There is a lookout tower where the Insane Captain Gnort fires at anyone trying to enter the island from the front.

It is much like blood island, like it has a hotel, only there's is much bigger, with 4 floors and the tavern is always full of happy pirates that managed to past Gnort. The Tavern, the Strangle Jangle, sells the tastiest, most foul throat stinging, intestine churning GROG. What a pirate dreams of. There is a mysterious light in the clouds above the island, where many rumours go told about it.
And the mysterious small island across from the lookout tower is a strange man that may sell you a few things.
Beware the cesret of grokkend Isle

12-22-2002, 06:32 PM

01-01-2003, 10:59 AM
Eck...sorry I'm late...I guess I kind of forgot about the thread :p
Anyway, the poll showed that everyone was equal, with 2 votes each. Since AG's images didn't work, and the island itself wasn't put into much detail, he is out. I reckon Neil's was the best, so he is this week's taskmaster. It's just me and K-j for this round, and the loser will be the taskmaster for the final round. So, Neil, set the task :)
