Avalon is comprised of thousands upon thousands of unique locations to explore. Full descriptions of each room are available in VERBOSE mode, or an condensed version in BRIEF.
The first line of a location's description will always be a brief indication of where you stand. A comprehensive description of the location will then follow, along with any creatures, people or items that may be there with you. The longer description of a location can be turned off and back on with the BRIEF and VERBOSE commands respectively.
You will find it easier to type BRIEF when you simply wish to move about as each location will be reduced to the one-line description. Conversely, you will want to look at the VERBOSE descriptions in more detail whenever you feel you are at a pivotal junc ture in your adventuring, or when you are stuck for some clues that will take you further. The lengthy descriptions tend to be very atmospheric - going immediately to BRIEF descriptions sacrifices much of the flavour and depth of the land.
- Glance Meeting place. [<--- Brief description] - Look Meeting place. [<--- Verbose description] Here the wood opens out into a clearing, the only exit lying to the north... From an opening in the trees far above, warm sunlight streams down into the secluded glade, lighting a mossy stone plinth in the centre. Around the circular plinth are spaced several squat tree stumps, polished smooth by the passage of ages past. There is a serene tranquillity about this place which lifts the cares of the land from your shoulders like a blessing from the Gods. But the merest draught shifts in the warm air. A warm breeze wafts over you and the heavens are free of cloud. You notice a single exit, to the north.
