Book One - "Docklands"

Part One - "Carthage Docks"

Carthage Docks is a room. The description is "Carthage has never been the same since the Third Punic War. Although it has been a languishing colony for about eighty years, it's finally started to take off a bit. It is being refashioned as a central hub for the shipment of African grain to Rome. At the moment it's a bit of a cross between a burned-out ruin and a boomtown[28 as a footnote]. This is a particularly unlovely section of wharf. An industrial district is off to the west. A wide street leads off to the north towards the agora. The [italic type]Golden Ass[roman type] is anchored to the east."

Some Carthaginians are men in Carthage Docks. They are ambiguously plural. The printed name is "passers-by". They are scenery. The description of the carthaginians is "Passers-by rush to and fro on inscrutable business of their own." Understand "carthaginian", "phoenicians", "phoenician", "man", "woman", "men", "people", "passer", "passers", "passerby", "passer-byes", "passers-by", and "women" as Carthaginians. The default reply of the Carthaginians is "They pay you no attention." Instead of attacking the Carthaginians, say "You know, having their city razed to the ground and the earth where it stood salted was probably punishment enough." Instead of fucking the Carthaginians, say "You don't feel much like random rape of passers-by today." The Carthaginians are unspeakable.

Instead of going east in Carthage:

if the stiffycock is diseased, instead say "Not while you still have your dishonorable discharge.";

follow the all-aboard-the-ass rule.
