The Storytelling Amphitheater
[Exits: west]
You are in a small amphitheater. Several rows of curved marble benches
curl comfortably around a raised dais. The high ceiling and polished
stone walls are shaped to reflect the voice of the speaker at the dais,
letting them be heard throughout the room. An open archway to the west
leads out into a small courtyard.

l oook
Big ogre.  Real big.  With a pair of yellowed tusks any boar would
be proud to sport.  He grins at you, revealing a series of massive
teeth, chipped and stained from a life of eating things few people
would consider edible.  And possibly from eating a few people that
most things would not consider edible, either.  His dark pea-green
skin has the texture - and odor - of a bubbling swamp, and a black
top-knot sprouts from his head like an unkempt horse's tail.  "Now
me can sing for you!" he bellows.  "Me sing good!"

Oook is in perfect health.
