oh noes, this will empty the pool...
But I can't see any way forward in this darkness.
If I can only open this hatch... I will try... Or die trying. (It's all very dramatic, isn't it.)
It's funny. This takes me back years. Me and my family used to draw, on a blackboard, rooms and walkways. (Before computers!)
The Dungeon Master, who wrote what happens in every room, knew the story but we had to roll a die to advance to each room.
The story would then be built on what rooms you entered and what you found (Inventory) and what you could use.
This is fantastic. It uses the same idea and makes it more interesting to everyone.
