you are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

There is a computer terminal here.

> look computer

You see a nondescript beige box with an old 14" CRT sitting on top. You brush a thick layer of dust off the screen, revealing a Firefox browser window open to StationExchange.

> find superpowers on computer

You type your request on the computer. After a brief pause you see a list of available items. One highlighted entry reads "+10 Pepsi(TM) Potion of Personal Fluidity, US$10".

> buy potion

I see no potion here.

> buy potion on computer

You pull out your trusty MUDsterCard, key in the numbers, and wait for the transaction to clear. You hear the sound of a cash register ringing, and a soft popping sound nearby.

> inv

You are carrying:
rusty knife
tattered copy of Bartle's MUD Advanced Project Report
+10 Pepsi(TM) Potion of Personal Fluidity

> drink potion

You tip the glittering crystal flask to your lips and drink deeply. It's very refreshing!

> drink potion

There's nothing left in the flask. You get the idea that you might need to pee.

> use powers

I see no powers here. You definitely need to pee.

> w

You can't go that way. But you really do need to *go*.

> s

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike. You dance around nervously.

> pee

I don't know how to do that. You really, really need to go. Maybe you should look for a +15 Pampers(TM) Shield of Absorbency (US$10).


I don't understand that. Type 'h' for a list of commands.
