The genre was fine-tuned by the same user for an earlier game entitled "Oblivion" based on a combination of earlier Play-by-Post genres, particularly a variant of Play-by-Post Choose Your Own Adventure that had become fairly popular on the Brawl in the Family forum board.
Posters control three playable characters; monkeys named Bob, Spike, and Dartin; on an quest to defeat the bloon army. Combat is handled in turns using a semi-fixed numerical stat system; and the characters level up according to standard Role-Playing Game rules.
The GM controls all enemies and determines the layout of the map, which the players navigate as per the standard Play-by-Post Choose Your Own Adventure.
