I wanted to make a simple rpg that could be played via SMS using the twilio platform.

What it does

The user will enter their information on a landing page for the web application. This will trigger a digital dice roll and based on the number of the die it will select a random quest for you the adventurer to go on.

How I built it

I built it using Ruby on Rails and implementing the Twilio API

Challenges I ran into

Originally I had planned on the user interacting with the application and have an actual text based rpg that could be played via SMS. However because I'm using a trial account I couldn't implement the interactiveness. So instead improvised by making a silly quest generator.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I managed to create something after my first idea fell through. Also finally got CSS to play nice in Rails.

What I learned

Using CSS within rails has been a struggle for me. CSS in general has been a struggle for me.

What's next for Adventures in SMS Land

I do plan on making a fully fledged app and intend to incorporate interactivity with twilio when I have the finances to upgrade my account.
