A rather humorous stroll through a familiar landscape., May 29, 2014
by LaFey (Porto, Portugal)
Well written and humorous. Of course will be fighting the parser at times (vanilla Quill?) - but if you remember to strip your action to the bare basics you'll get by to "Smog" unscathed without too much hassle. Oh, there and back again, for there is a chest in your burrow that needs filling. Remember to use "RAM SAVE" and "RAM LOAD".

A regard to the author, owner of the fabled Zenobi software company which managed to publish a fine number of good IF far well into the late nineties. So all hail the Balrog, the Cat and the Cockroach.
