Makestation Play's Zork

#1
Hello Everyone and welcome to ZORK: The Underground Empire, the rules are simple.
once per day I will update the game log and map depending on the decisions everyone makes, Majority wins.
there will be an inventory list kept in the opening post.

note: not all posts are direct actions, so feel free to discuss what you think might be the best move to make next before the next action is picked.

the map will update as you explore.

Red dot = your position on the map

EDIT: if however no updates are made a random choice will be made, not all of them will progress the game.

Quote:LORE
a list of known information about objects, monsters, and places.

Mailbox: on the east side of the mysterious house.

Leaflet: found in the mailbox, says the following:

Quote:"WELCOME TO ZORK!


ZORK is a game of adventure, danger, and low cunning. In it you will explore
some of the most amazing territory ever seen by mortals. No computer should be
without one!"

Kitchen:

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.

Living Room:

Quote:The living room of the white house. 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.
