A Cell of Torment
[Exits: none]
You stand in a dark cell.  Straw and dirt cover the floor except for a 6
inch hole in a corner which must have some purpose.  A cot rests against
the wall far from the door.  The door itself apparently made of thick
steel.  There is no light here and no sleep for you either.
An unleashed nightmare is here.

A Cell of Torment
[Exits: none]

Opening a portal to the newsboy.
The Offices of the Midgaard Daily News
[Exits: east]
The hustle and bustle of the news agency is apparent as people scurry
about posting stories from around the world. Reports of great adventures,
heroic conquests, and the odd sad demise make up the fodder these folks
seek out to print each day's edition of the news. Over in the corner you
see the classifieds' desk, the place where a mere mortal can try and 
place an ad for inclusion in the next edition. The line there is long
causing you to wonder if your ad is important enough to spend the time
and money that it takes to post it.

The newsboy was last here, traveling east.

DarkClaw is here.
(White Aura) The newsboy stands here selling newspapers.

Posse finds her, we'll begin the wedding'.

to take good care of her'.

Morimox disappears in a mushroom cloud.
DarkClaw disappears in a mushroom cloud.
Tokugawa has transferred you.
Under Mysterra Falls
[Exits: north west]
Awesome. Towering. Stunning. These are but a few of the words that come to 
mind as you gaze up at them. And above them must be the headwaters of the 
Wyz, somewhere in the mountains above Mysterra Falls which comes roaring 
down hundreds of feet to culminate in a majestic spray on the rocks just 
above this pool. The waters of the Wyz, ice cold and swiftly flowing, run 
down a narrow channel to the south on their way through the Mountains of 
Mystery. Legends about these mountains are few. Is that because there is 
nothing here, or is it because no one ever returns alive and able to tell 
tales? Perhaps this is your chance to go down in legend as a great hero, 
conquering the great unknown!
The sky is cloudy and a warm southerly breeze blows.
