Part Two - "Sybil"

The Cumaean Sybil is a woman in the Sybilline Grotto. The indefinite article is "the". The description is "Hanging in a bottle, like a cat[66 as a reference][67 as a reference], is the wizened, shrunken form of the Cumaean Sybil." The conversation of the Cumaean Sybil is the Table of Cumaean Chatter. The default reply of the Cumaean Sybil is "No sound issues from the bottle." Understand "cumean", "cat", "dimly", "wizened", "shrunken", "form", "prophetess", "prophet", "seer", "fortune-teller", and "oracle" as the Cumaean Sybil.

The hanging_bottle is scenery in the Sybilline Grotto. The printed name is "hanging bottle". The indefinite article is "the". The description is "The bottle is made of smoked glass. It is perhaps three feet tall, but with a narrow neck, and it hangs from the ceiling. The shrunken form of the Sybil is dimly visible through it." Understand "hanging", "bottle", "three", "feet", "smooth", "heavy", "cold", "flavorless", "chain", "chained", "large", "big", "smoked", "glass", "ceiling", "cage", and "ampulla" as the hanging_bottle. Instead of attacking the hanging_bottle, try attacking the Cumaean Sybil. Instead of touching, rubbing, pushing, or pulling the hanging_bottle, say "It is smooth, cold glass, and surprisingly heavy." Instead of kissing the hanging_bottle, say "You osculate cold glass. The Sybil doesn't seem to care." Instead of tasting the hanging_bottle, say "Cold and flavorless, like you'd expect from a glass bottle." Instead of blowing the hanging_bottle, say "The neck is too high off the ground." Instead of taking the hanging_bottle, say "It is big, and chained to the ceiling; you can't."

Instead of touching, rubbing, sucking, fucking, blowing, kissing, or wanking off the Cumaean Sybil:

say "Fortunately for all concerned, the neck of the bottle is too narrow.". Instead of attacking the Cumaean Sybil, say "Violence really, [italic type]really[roman type] isn't the answer to this one."
