The Python Adventure is an implementaion of the original
Addventure written in Python and distributed for webmasters so they
can host Addventures on thier own sites.
- What is an Addventure?
- An Addventure is an adventure you can add to. A more technical
definition would be that an addventure is a type of hyperfiction
which is created by the community. Hyperfiction, as
defined by Wikipedia, is fiction in the form of web pages, with
links to other sections of the story. Addventures, first named by
the original Addventurers,
consist of user created episodes which then spawn links to new possible
episodes. As these are filled in and new possiblites are created,
the story grows.
- And Python?
- Python is the script language used to create the python addventure,
hence the name. The original was written in C and perl, but as the
group seems to have fallen by the wayside and the documentation
for their code is less than perfered. For this reason I have taken
the idea of the original Addventure, along with ideas from other similar
systems, to create from scratch new addventure code in python.
