by Johnn Cater

Basket of Destiny is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by Johnn Cater. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 15 event.

You play as someone who thinks their life sucks, but you have a plan. You're going to become a world-famous underwater basketweaver and appear on the hit TV show "When Bankers Attack Antique Roadshows" and it's all going to happen today.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
