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...?


Cloak of Darkness
A basic IF demonstration.

Foyer of the Opera House
   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's pitch black.

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

>NORTH
Foyer of the Opera House

>LOOK
Foyer of the Opera House
   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
Cloakroom
   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.

>EXAMINE THE HOOK
It's just a small brass hook, screwed to the wall.

>EXAMINE ME
You look about the same as always.

>INVENTORY
You have a velvet cloak (being worn).

>TAKE OFF THE CLOAK
Okay, you're no longer wearing the velvet cloak.

>EXAMINE IT
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 IT ON THE HOOK
Done.

>EAST
Foyer of the Opera House

>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.

>READ THE MESSAGE
The message, neatly marked in the sawdust, reads...
