Discourse Frotz

What is it

It’s a ‘bot’ with which to play interactive fiction aka text adventure games on your Discourse forum and is essentially an adaptor to the standard Z-machine interpreter called ‘frotz’ at David Griffith / frotz · GitLab

It is arguably a bit wasteful of forum resources as it requires at least two posts for every ‘move’, so it’s not 100% a serious plugin, more an executive toy and a just-because-you-can affair. It is obviously more appropriate to play these using a chat interface, rather than a forum, but you might argue this could be used to create Walkthroughs?

Probably not gonna run this on talkgroup, but pretty neat all the same. :slight_smile:
