(Start of new game)

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...?

Foyer of the Opera House.
You can go south, west or north.
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
Foyer bar.
It is dark in here.

> EXAMINE ME
In the dark? You could easily disturb something!

> NORTH
Foyer of the Opera House.
You can go south, west or north.
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.

> LOOK
Foyer of the Opera House.
You can go south, west or north.
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 cloakroom.
You can go east.
You can see a hook.
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.

> LOOK AT THE HOOK
It's just a small brass hook.

> EXAMINE CLOAK
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.

> PUT CLOAK ON HOOK
You place the cloak on the hook.

> EAST
Foyer of the Opera House.
You can go south, west or north.
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.

> SOUTH
Foyer bar.
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.

> LOOK AT THE MESSAGE
The message, neatly marked in the sawdust, reads...
You have won.
