Throughout the country people were dropping like flies
and your poor unfortunate family were to be no exception.
After ten days of harrowing sickness both your Mother
and Father passed away and you found yourself alone in the
world for the first time in your life. Grief stricken and
distraught you vowed to leave this place of sadness and
to journey to happier places. So it was that you made your
way to the local harbour where you signed on as a deck-hand
on a vessel bound for the islands of the Eastern Seas.
For the first part of the voyage your mind was spent more
in learning how to keep the contents of your stomach where
they belonged than in enjoying the new vistas that came your
way. But after a while you gained your "sea legs" and things
took on a healthier glow.
"Looks like there is a storm brewing," said the first mate
and you saw no reason to doubt him. After all, he had been a
sailor all his life and was surely capable of reading the
signs of such a thing approaching. Sure enough that night a
great storm broke and though your vessel was a stoutly built
one it was still tossed about like a cork. You hung on to
the sides of your bunk and prayed for the storm to abate,
but worse was still to come. A great wave, almost four times
the height of your ship, crashed down around it and sent it
and the crew to the bottom of the ocean. Luckily for you
somebody up there decided that now was not your time and you

This game will recognise all the standard commands such as EXAMINE, CLIMB, DIG etc, as well as some other ones like TURN, PLACE, TIE and BURY. In most cases a simple "verb" and "noun" input should suffice to produce the required action - provided the words used are "recognised" by the game's interpreter.
Use the commands SAVE and LOAD to make a permanent record of your present game "position", but if you simply wish to make a quick record then use the commands RAMSAVE and RAMLOAD. Please note that the latter commands only save your "position" to memory and that this is erased when you switch off your machine.
Disguise can play a very helpful part in things when you are trying not to be seen from above and gaining some "height" can often enable you to see further than when you are at ground level.
Monkeys can be great mimics... They love to repeat your actions... Just give it a try...
