How To Play Cup of Olea

Let's get started! This page will tell you everything you need to know about submitting commands and playing Cup of Olea. As a reader, you have the ability to command our main protagonist, Cliff, or a member of the party! Cool right? The possibilities are nearly limitless! Just remember: with great power comes great responsibility. In other words, your responsibility, as the reader, is the follow the rules below when submitting commands, otherwise your command will be ignored. The rules are as follows:

  1. Only Cliff and party members can be commanded. Further, party members will only fulfill a command if it does not conflict with their current nature.
  2. No summoning without a blood pact. You can view current blood pacts on the "Characters" page.
  3. The following commands will be ignored: "Follow the plot", attempting to glitch the game, killing/attacking royalty/party members, exploring other dimensions, and fusing two living beings.
  4. Cliff and party members can only use items in the inventory or in their immediate surroundings. Similarly, they can only use weapons or techniques specific to them (I.E. Katelynn cannot use a sword).
  5. If all lives are used up, it's a GAME OVER, and all items in the inventory will be lost.
  6. Please keep commands PG-13 so that everyone can enjoy Cup of Olea.

Next, let's go over how to submit a command.

  • To submit a command, you must be a member of SmackJeeves.com. A membership is free, and you don't have to give any personal information to make a membership. You can sign up for a free account by clicking HERE!
  • Commands must be submitted on the most recent page. You are on the most recent page when you click on the ">>" button in the comic navigation, and see a post by MasterComic saying "Submit your commands below!".
  • Commands must have the character ">" in front of them. Without it, sometimes it is hard to tell if you are commanding, or just leaving a comment.
  • Commands are first-come, first-serve, meaning that during an update, commands will be added in the order they were submitted. To command effectively, read the commands submitted before you and use them to inform your decisions!
  • A user may submit only one command per update. This makes it so everyone gets a fair chance.
