Picnic in Paradise is an Eamon adventure written by John Nelson.


The adventure's premise varies slightly based on the sex of the adventurer. Male adventurers see the following introduction:

You finally managed to get a date with Heather, that cute girl in the Main Hall you'd been watching. She wanted a picnic in Paradise Park just a short ways down the road. You remember the place: a nice quiet park with lots of trees, birds and flowers. You gather up a lunch and journey off to Paradise...

You take your best saddle blanket to sit on and journey down the road.

You soon reach the park and find a nice spot a few yards from a cliff. The journey has worn you out more than you expected and you decide to take a short nap prior to eating.

You leave your date to set up the picnic meal and catch a few winks.

You dream of a horrible abduction and it scares you enough that you wake up with a start. You look around, and your date is gone — without a single trace. Even the lunch basket is gone! (Too bad, too — you are getting hungry.)

You don't know what happened to the girl either. She must have gone home.

You must now find your own way home.

Female adventurers see the following:

You finally managed to get Magnum, that hunk you've been eyeing, to ask you out. He said you could picnic in Paradise... You didn't realize he literally meant a picnic in a place called Paradise Park. You pack a picnic lunch and head off for the park.

When you get there, you have a splitting headache and decide to lie down under a shade tree for a little while. You fall asleep and dream your date is abducted. You wake up with a start and realize he is gone! The cad even stole your lunch! You now have to walk home alone! Men!!
