Welcome to the test micro-adventure.


                           The Cloak of Darkness

Hurrying  through  the  rainswept  November night, you're glad to see the
bright lights of the Opera House. It's surprising that there aren't  more
people about but, hey, what do you expect in a cheap demo game...?

You  are  standing  in  a  spacious hall, splendidly decorated in red and
gold, with glittering chandeliers overhead. The entrance from the  street
is to the north, and there are doorways south and west.

? GO NORTH

You've  only  just  arrived, and besides, the weather outside seems to be
getting worse.

? GO SOUTH

It is too dark here to see anything.

? EXAMINE ME

I have a better idea: let's get out of here before you disturb anything.

? NORTH

You are in the hall.

? LOOK

You  are  standing  in  a  spacious hall, splendidly decorated in red and
gold, with glittering chandeliers overhead. The entrance from the  street
is to the north, and there are doorways south and west.

? WEST

The  walls  of this small room were clearly once lined with hooks, though
now only one remains. The exit is a door to the east.

There is a brass hook here.

? EXAMINE THE HOOK

It's just a small brass hook, screwed into the wall.

? INVENTORY

You are carrying
A velvet cloak (worn)

? REMOVE THE CLOAK

You remove the cloak.

? EXAMINE CLOAK

It  is  a  handsome  cloak,  of  velvet  trimmed with satin, and slightly
spattered with raindrops. Its blackness is so deep that it  almost  seems
to suck light from the room.

? HANG CLOAK

You hang the cloak on the hook.

? EAST

You are in the hall.

? SOUTH

The  bar,  much rougher than you'd have guessed after the opulence of the
foyer to the north, is completely empty.

There seems to be some sort of message scrawled in  the  sawdust  on  the
floor.

? READ THE MESSAGE

The message, neatly marked in the sawdust, reads...

                          YOU HAVE WON !!!

You have scored 0 of a possible maximum of 0 points, using 14 turns.

Congratulations!  You can now go and play something else!
