Book Two - "Geography"

Part One - "The Land Of the Dead"

The underworld_sky_scenery is sky_scenery in the Land of the Dead. It is in the Unreal City, the Garden, Rats' Alley, the Slough of Despond, Little Thebes, the Riverbank, the Northern_riverbank, the Bloody Wood, the Circular Ruins, the Olive Grove, the Muddy Field, and the Plaza. The description is "The sky is low, brown, and claustrophobic." Understand "low", "brown", "sky", "murky", "fog", "foggy", "claustrophobic", "cloud", and "clouds" as the underworld_sky_scenery.

The Land of the Dead is a room. The description is "You have entered the Land of the Living Dead. Thousands of lost souls can be heard weeping and moaning. In the corner are stacked the remains of dozens of previous adventurers less fortunate than yourself. A passage exits to the north." Instead of listening while the location is the Land of the Dead: say "You know, the standard weeping and moaning of lost souls." Instead of going outside in the Land of the Dead, try going north.

Some remains are scenery in the Land of the Dead. They are ambiguously plural. The description is "You see nothing special about the pile of bodies[16 as a reference]." Understand "corpse", "corpses", "body", "bodies", "pile", "pile of bodies", "dozens", "souls", "lost", "thousands", and "adventurers" as remains. Instead of touching, rubbing, sucking, fucking, blowing, kissing, buggering or wanking off the remains:

if the stiffycock is not visible, instead say "You are not undressed for the occasion.";

if the mummified corpse is warned_about, instead say "You fear another papercut.";

say "Necrophilia isn't really your thing."

The crystal skull is a thing in the Land of the Dead. The description is "Lying in one corner of the room is a beautifully carved crystal skull. It appears to be grinning at you rather nastily.".

Instead of doing anything other than examining with the crystal skull:

say "Crystal skull? What do you think this is, [italic type]Zork I[roman type]? There's no crystal skull here.";

move the crystal skull to Limbo.
