Welcome to Zork!

Dungeon is a game of adventure, danger, and low cunning. In it
you will explore some of the most amazing territory ever seen by mortal
man. Hardened adventurers have run screaming from the terrors contained
within.

In Dungeon, the intrepid explorer delves into the forgotten secrets
of a lost labyrinth deep in the bowels of the earth, searching for
vast treasures long hidden from prying eyes, treasures guarded by
fearsome monsters and diabolical traps!

No DECsystem should be without one!

Dungeon was created at the Programming Technology Division of the MIT
Laboratory for Computer Science by Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce
Daniels, and Dave Lebling. It was inspired by the Adventure game of
Crowther and Woods, and the Dungeons and Dragons game of Gygax
and Arneson. The original version was written in MDL (alias MUDDLE).
The current version was translated from MDL into FORTRAN IV by
a somewhat paranoid DEC engineer who prefers to remain anonymous,
and was later translated to C.

On-line information may be obtained with the commands HELP and INFO.

> go west

You are in a forest, with trees in all directions around you.

> get ye flask

I don't understand that.

> go east

You are in a dimly lit forest, with large trees all around. One
particularly large tree with some low branches stands here.

> climb tree

You are about ten feet above the ground nestled among some large
branches. The nearest branch above you is beyond your reach.
On the branch is a small birds nest.
The birds nest contains:
A jewel-encrusted egg.

 

    >climb tree

You cannot climb any higher.

> get egg

Taken.

> climb down

You are in a dimly lit forest, with large trees all around. One
particularly large tree with some low branches stands here.

> go east

You are in a clearing, with a forest surrounding you on the west
and south.
There is a pile of leaves on the ground.

> move leaves

Done.
A grating appears on the ground.

> use egg

I don't understand that.

> open grating

The grating is locked.

> items

I don't understand that.


> go south

You are in a dimly lit forest, with large trees all around. To the
east, there appears to be sunlight.

> go east

You are in a clearing, with a forest surrounding you on the west
and south.
There is a grating securely fastened into the ground.
There is a pile of leaves on the ground.

> go south

You are in a dimly lit forest, with large trees all around. To the
east, there appears to be sunlight.

> go south

You are in a large forest, with trees obstructing all views except
to the east, where a small clearing may be seen.

> go east

You are at the top of the great canyon on its south wall. From here
there is a marvelous view of the canyon and parts of the Frigid River
upstream. Across the canyon, the walls of the white cliffs still
appear to loom far above. Following the canyon upstream (north and
northwest), Aragain Falls may be seen, complete with rainbow.
Fortunately, my vision is better than average, and I can discern the
top of flood control dam #3 far to the distant north. To the
west and south can be seen an immense forest, stretching for miles
around. It is possible to climb down into the canyon from here.

 

    >go down

You are on a ledge about halfway up the wall of the river canyon.
You can see from here that the main flow from Aragain Falls twists
along a passage which it is impossible to enter. Below you is the
canyon bottom. Above you is more cliff, which still appears
climbable.

> go down

You are beneath the walls of the river canyon, which may be climbable
here. There is a small stream here, which is the lesser part of the
runoff of Aragain Falls. To the north is a narrow path.

> go north

You are on a small beach on the continuation of the Frigid River
past the falls. The beach is narrow due to the presence of the white
cliffs. The river canyon opens here, and sunlight shines in from
above. A rainbow crosses over the falls to the west, and a narrow path
continues to the southeast.

What should I do with the jewel-encrusted egg?

> egg on grating

What should I do with the jewel-encrusted egg?

> open grating with egg
 

You rather indelicate handling of the egg has caused it some damage.
The egg is now open.
There is a golden clockwork canary nestled in the egg. It seems to
have recently had a bad experience. The mountings for its jewel-like
eyes are empty, and its silver beak is crumpled. Through a cracked
crystal window below its left wing you can see the remains of
intricate machinery. It is not clear what result winding it would
have, as the mainspring appears sprung.

> fix bird

I don't understand that.

There is an unpleasant grinding noise from inside the canary.

> fix canary

I don't understand that.
