Part Fifteen - "Mud"

Chapter One - "Mud"

The Muddy Field is west of the Northern_riverbank. "Once the field might have been covered in grass. Now the grass is but a memory. Mud covers the ground in its place, fed by the constant rain[if the umbrella is carried and the umbrella is open], which your umbrella deflects most of[end if]."

The scenery_mud is scenery in the Muddy Field. The printed name is "mud". Understand "mud" and "brown" as the scenery_mud. The description is "The viscous brown substance uniformly covers the ground." Instead of digging the scenery_mud, try digging Tantalus.

The jug of vinegar is a thing in the Muddy Field. "A jug marked 'VINEGAR' lies on its side in the field[if Tantalus is in the Muddy field] only a few inches from the head[end if]." The description is "A medium-sized jug of vinegar." Understand "medium" and "medium-sized" as the jug of vinegar. Instead of drinking or smelling the jug of vinegar, say "Acrid. What did you expect?" Instead of opening the vinegar, say "You can uncork it easily; don't worry about it." Instead of rolling the jug of vinegar, say "There really isn't much point."

Before taking the jug of vinegar:

if Tantalus is unboinked, instead say "The head snaps its teeth at you and you hastily withdraw."
