Then I should give thanks that I am not a terrorist.

Want to go to just "east"?
If you insist.

You come to a clearing. A man is standing next to a pile of leaves. Your rusty sword glows blue.

The man mumbles something. You think you see the pile of leaves move.

The tree says, "Ouch".
The tree grabs you and rips your head off.

***********************************

You awaken and realize that you are walking along a stone path in a grassy valley. The path winds along the nadir of the valley, taking several turns along the way. The path continues north. To the east is a dirt path into a forest. To the west, an impassable mountain ridge. To the south, another dirt path leads to the small beach where you arrived.

There is a printed leaflet here. It smells of pine.

On the leaflet the following words are written:

Find the wombat.
Only the wombat knows.

You head east. After 17 days of walking you get really pissed off.
Just as the Sun is setting on the seventeenth day you are confronted by an air marshal holding a drumstick and walking an alligator.

The alligator eats the leaflet and turns into a dragon. Next time you should be more careful and conserve your poly morph scrolls; they could come in handy.

The dragon eats the air marshal.

You now have a busted leash in your inventory.

Some birds chirping in a nearby tree catches the dragon's attention.

You come to an old, dilapidated house.
A faded, barely legible sign next to the door reads "Nostalgia Inn".

You hear echoes from conversations past…

Realizing that the leaflet from 3 years ago remains unread, you unfold it.

It contains two words:


"Modulo"



And beneath it, written in what appears to be dried blood, the enigmatic word:


"Covfefe"

You cut off your arms and put the covfefe into the modulo and the lime in the coconut using your feet. You feel better until you realize that you drank toe jam.

Not having arms, use of a pipe wrench is limited.

You examine the coin. One one face is the head of Belwit the Flat. On the other face is the denomination: 1 Zorkmid. It is a Flathead coin of great antiquity.

You try to trade the zorkmid for a Bitcoin but AM, the computer, screams about how much it hates you, erases your mouth, and pushes you down an elevator shaft.

You are at the bottom of an elevator shaft. There is a door here.
