Part 21: Chapter 21
> Look at self
I know that got a ... strange response in Zork. I'm wondering if it has the same response here.
>look at self
As good-looking as ever.
We must get this bird. Our fate depends on it.
>Turn off lantern.
So you're thinking the light is scaring it. That sounds quite plausible. Let's try it.
>turn off lantern
You switch the brass lantern off.
It is now pitch dark in here!
You can't see any such thing.
Guess we can't see it in the dark. Maybe something else? In case it jogs anything loose, and since it's been a little bit anyway, diagnostics:
You are carrying:
a black rod with a rusty star on the end
a wicker cage (which is open but empty)
a small bottle
some bottled water
a brass lantern
some tasty food
a set of keys
You have so far scored 36 out of a possible 350, in 81 turns, earning you the rank of Adventurer.
