Welcome to the Flexible Survival Wiki.
Flexible Survival Wiki is a supporting Wiki for the text-based Flexible Survival MUCK created by Nuku Valente.
Its storyline is based in a not-too-distant past of 2008, containing science fiction elements about a nanite-based virus outbreak and its mutation-inducing consequences. The game is based on roleplay and classic hack'n'slash combat, supporting both a web interface as well as a standard MU* telnet client.
This wiki is set up to be edited by any registered user, but to be registered, a user must go into the game's MUCK, described below. After creating a character, use the command +wiki/create to start the process toward being a registered user!

Flexible Survival: Single-Player
The single-player version of the game can be found at Nuku's blog and is a text-based game with a 'sandbox' feel. On the surface, it is a timed survival game where players must keep their character fed, watered and sane until rescue by the military shortly after the infection of the city by the transformation nanites. There are an array of creatures, events, NPCs and quests (both mini-quests and majour undertakings) to explore and experience. Many of the creatures of the city will attempt to infect the player (often through sexual contact) resulting in body transformations. The game has numerous 'endings' based on how the player is infected at the end of the game, whether they survived or succumbed to the infection, and which NPCs have been encountered and saved.
Players new to the game should read the Overall Gameplay article, which contains no spoilers and explains the core concepts of the game.
