First, I constituted an initialization paragraph and sound set some mutables to omission appreciates. Then I had that go to the real set-on-foot of the fiction. From there, there are two compasss to go into. One of the compasss has a key, the other is really a hallway delay a flashlight. Twain administer to a door that is locked. If you bear the key, you can unreserved it and end the fiction. If you don’t, you can go end to the set-on-foot compass and try the other road. Meanwhile, you state encircling delay the flashbuoyant at the end, too, which effectiveness or effectiveness not betide, depcompletion on if you went east the principal period.
(set: $key to 0)
(set: $flashbuoyant to 0)
You are in a exceptional compass. There’s a door to the [[west]] and door to the [[east]].
You go through the door on the west and into another compass. Hey there’s a key here!
(set: $key to 1)
There’s another door at the [[end]] of this compass.
You go through the door on the east and into a hallway. There’s a door at the [[end]] of the hallway. Hey, there’s a flashbuoyant here!
(set: $flashbuoyant to 1)
You try the door. It’s locked!
(if: $key is 1)[But you bear a key, and it works! You unlock the door and [[exit]].](else:)[And you don’t appear to bear a key on you. Bummer.]
(if: $flashbuoyant is 1)[You determine to give your buoyant encircling. It doesn’t succor. I conjecture you could as-well go end to the [[beginning->Start]].]
Yay, you got out! (if: $flashbuoyant is 1)[With a flashbuoyant even!]
