DrupalZM – It is pitch black.

After fixing a dumb bitwise math bug and fixing a piece of the insert object logic (after removing an object, it wasn’t setting siblings correctly), things are looking pretty awesome. I would call the following a pretty successful test!

ZORK I: The Great Underground Empire

West of House
You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
There is a small mailbox here.

North of House
You are facing the north side of a white house. There is no door here, and all the windows are boarded up. To the north a narrow path winds through the trees.

Behind House
You are behind the white house. A path leads into the forest to the east. In one corner of the house there is a small window which is slightly ajar.

>open window
With great effort, you open the window far enough to allow entry.

>go in
You are in the kitchen of the white house. A table seems to have been used recently for the preparation of food. A passage leads to the west and a dark staircase can be seen leading upward. A dark chimney leads down and to the east is a small window which is open.
On the table is an elongated brown sack, smelling of hot peppers.
A bottle is sitting on the table.
The glass bottle contains:
A quantity of water

>take bottle

Living Room
You are in the living room. There is a doorway to the east, a wooden door with strange gothic lettering to the west, which appears to be nailed shut, a trophy case, and a large oriental rug in the center of the room.
Above the trophy case hangs an elvish sword of great antiquity.
A battery-powered brass lantern is on the trophy case.

>take lantern

>move rug
With a great effort, the rug is moved to one side of the room, revealing the dusty cover of a closed trap door.

>open door
Which door do you mean, the wooden door or the trap door?

The door reluctantly opens to reveal a rickety staircase descending into darkness.

You are carrying:
A brass lantern
A glass bottle
The glass bottle contains:
A quantity of water

>take sword

You have moved into a dark place.
The trap door crashes shut, and you hear someone barring it.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
Your sword is glowing with a faint blue glow.

>turn on lantern
The brass lantern is now on.

You are in a dark and damp cellar with a narrow passageway leading north, and a crawlway to the south. On the west is the bottom of a steep metal ramp which is unclimbable.

The Troll Room
This is a small room with passages to the east and south and a forbidding hole leading west. Bloodstains and deep scratches (perhaps made by an axe) mar the walls.
A nasty-looking troll, brandishing a bloody axe, blocks all passages out of the room.
Your sword has begun to glow very brightly.
The troll swings; the blade turns on your armor but crashes broadside into your head.

>kill troll with sword
You are still recovering from that last blow, so your attack is ineffective.
The troll swings his axe, but it misses.

You charge, but the troll jumps nimbly aside.
The axe sweeps past as you jump aside.

The troll is staggered, and drops to his knees.
The troll slowly regains his feet.

The fatal blow strikes the troll square in the heart: He dies.
Almost as soon as the troll breathes his last breath, a cloud of sinister black fog envelops him, and when the fog lifts, the carcass has disappeared.
Your sword is no longer glowing.

Your score is 35 (total of 350 points), in 18 moves.
This gives you the rank of Amateur Adventurer.
