The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

This game is my (another) desperate attempt to make something happen around here

Mr. Kantkli lives in a big town, has a nice job, but since he is a true adventurer in heart, one day he decided to take a vacation and spend some time in a forest which was nearby. Since he has never done a thing like that before, he wanted to be prepared for everything, so he made sure he had his first-aid kit with him all the time. And that was a very good decision, because sometimes some strange, unexplainable forces can make a man do things that he shouldn’t do… Can you keep him away from trouble; can you help him to return home safely in one piece?

The game rules: Every day I will post a short story about Mr. Kantkli. At the end of each story he will see something. (It can be an object or a living being, but I will always use the word it for it) I will only reveal a few letters of the word he sees, the other letters will have a * instead. You have to try to guess the word I was thinking about. (For example a S * * P can be a ship)

After that I will give you a few possible actions, so everybody can choose what should Mr. Kantkli do. I will use the action which gets the most “votes” for the continuation of the story and than you can all see what consequences will that have for Mr. Kantkli. If two or more actions get the same number of “votes”, than I will use the one that was suggested first (the earliest).

So all you have to do is try to guess the word and then post it together with the action you think would be in the best interest of Mr. Kantkli. (That way you can help the others, or you can lead everybody on the wrong track, who knows? )
Important: You don’t have to post the word if nothing comes to your mind, just the action will do.

You can post your answers till 13:00h CET or 1:00 pm CET next day (for those in other time zones, look at the time of this post as a help) and I’ll post the next story a few hours later after that.

Let CCL have mercy on poor Mr. Kantkli !

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

An extremely happy Mr. Kantkli arrived at the forest. He made a nice little camp and felt excited like never before. He was healthy, eager to start his adventure. Then all of a sudden he saw something in the grass. He got close to it and saw it is a
S * A * E


What should he do?

a) run away from it
b) throw a rock at it
c) pick it up
d) try to eat it

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

Ok...I think that the word is snake and in this case, Mr. Kantkli should a) run away from it.

Your opponent is not the person on the other side of the net, or the team on the other end of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself - your negative internal waves, your level of determination.

Moonlight you're a star

Snake seems to be the answer.
And what he should do depends on whether he is adventurous and might need the snake later on

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

Your choice was: run away from it

Mr. Kantkli quickly turned around and started running as fast as he could. He had been running for at least 10 minutes when he finally had to stop because he couldn’t run anymore. Out of breath, he started to wonder: “Why did I get so frightened of a spade? I should have just picked it up. I could have used it for digging.” Then he realized something else: “I am lost now. I don’t know where my camp is and I don’t have any food or water. What am I going to do now?” With his legs trembling and hands shaking from tiredness and fear, he started to despair, but then he saw something. It was a
P I *

What should he do?

a) put it in his pocket
b) eat it
c) hit it with his hand
d) whistle

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

Hm… a snake? Have I mentioned that this forest is full of traps not just for Mr Kantkli?
You wouldn’t believe what kind of things you can find here.

After reading all your suggestions, I think Mr. Kantkli is going to remember this vacation for ever

Well he is a adventurer all right, but a pretty clumsy and not a too bright one, so don’t expect too much of him.

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

frightened of a spade, surely that wasn't bright at all

Anyway it could be a pig, which he could have killed and eaten with the spade, but it's not gonna be possible now

Yas don't complicate it that much. If he wants to eat it he'll try something. (whether it will be successful - that's another story ) But it might not be a pig

So, is 'eat it ' your choice?

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

I didn't say Pig was my answer nor eat it... I should just shut up from now on instead of thinking loud

Re: The adventures of Mr. Kantkli - the game

I’m sorry guys but due to some unforseen circumstances I won’t be able to keep this game going (this game needs quite of my time), so I guess I’ll have to send Mr. Kantkli home. The good news is that he is still in one piece
