Ever wanted to travel through time, become a master at martial arts, eat soup and own a primate, a castle and a starship? Then this is your game! Wiki-Based-RPG is an open source, text based game, with somewhat experimental gameplay. The server writes a story - based on key words which the game gets from Wikipedia (or any other wiki, if you modify the code a little). Between every two story sections, the heroes (the players) are allowed to reply by saying something, doing something or using something from their inventory. No two stories are alike, but all stories are guaranteed to be crazy! At the end, you can export the story directly to .html and show your friends, post it, or send them to me so I can post them here!
Wiki-Based-RPG is now featuring custom colour themes, multilanguage-support, more wikipedia <-> hero interaction and a spider! Also, as always, it still features bananas, knights, a piano, and dragons.

Wiki-Based-RPG 0.6 released!
I'm proud to release the next version of the Wiki-Based-RPG, which has been uploaded and should be authorized soon.
As always, you can also get it right from gitHub.
Translating should take less than 30 minutes.
This game is best played in your own, native language, but I only speak so many.
I'd greatly appreciate it if you could translate the game into your own language. I tried to make it as easy as possible by putting all the language strings into a simple file.
There's also example files in German and English.
Instructions on translating are in the Readme in the .zip file.
So send me your translations!
