I'm bored so I'm starting up a game of Forum Zork, the rules are pretty simple
0: Do not perform consecutive actions unless thread has been dead for at least 3 days
1: Whenever a movement command is used, eg: Go West, the next poster has to write a small description of the new location.
2: All players must write the "There is .... here" line followed by the list of interactible objects in the scene
3: Commands are to be on the last line with a '>' followed by the command
4: When a player does a new post they must write out the results of the command of the previous post

So Let's start off:

West of House:
You are standing in an open field west of a white house with a boarded front door.

There is a small mailbox here
>Open Mailbox

One thing people always forget about science: science never demands a rational explanation for anything. To science anything is possible... including magic... especially magic.

You open the mailbox. There is a letter and a small package inside.
>Open letter
>Open package
>Open neither, this is not your mail

ERROR: unexpected Command on Line 3 and 4, Processing Line 2
West of House:
You open the Letter, it appears to be a flier for the local arizona furry forum, on the bottom is a a magical symbol, it shifts and moves as you stare at it, clearly magical. suddenly the letter bursts into flames and a confused looking fox fairy appears.

There is a fox fairy (She looks confused), and a package here,

Those were options for the next person to choose from. I chose to open the mailbox from what you listed in your post, described what was in it, and gave options for the next person.

Well, maybe my instructions weren't clear but that's not how this game works. you put your command on the > line which the next person enacts however they want.

Ah, I was thinking it was more like a text rpg where you choose from a set of options at each turn and that determines the story.
