You wait. Time passes.
Getting very philosophical aren't we...
Too deep for me.
...time waits while I pass...but enough about my bowel movements, how are yours :^)...
Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold.
You are in a comfortable tunnel like hall.
To the east there is the round green door.
the wooden chest.
Gandalf. Gandalf is carrying a curious map.
Gandalf gives the curious map to you.
mmm... an intervention may be required...
Oh god. He's quoting from the Hobbit ZX Spectrum game. "you wait. Times passes" was the response you got when you typed the command "wait" if memory serves.
You can download a free ZX Spectrum emulator and play it for yourself. It's terrible.
I remember this bit!
YOU CANNOT GO NORTH.
Gandalf opens the round green door.
Thorin says " Hurry up ".
You are in a gloomy empty land with dreary hills ahead.
To the west there is the round green door.
Visible exits are east north northeast.
You see: Gandalf.
Gandalf takes the curious map.
Bloody Hell... just read "You Wait time passes" and had an immediate flash back of playing the Hobbit in my parents kitchen.... Spooky - Cheers for the memory
Hey, no cheating at the back there.
Play it online within your browser at http://www.spectrum.lovely.net/Hobbit.html
And remember to click the box and hit your RETURN key to move the screen beyond the piccie at each location.
(I was kind of hoping that I'd be able to act as your own emulator via these Comments, to see how Bilbo would cope with multiple players controlling him. But let's face it, the Troll would eat him.)
