55In

57you are placed in a cave built of many different rooms,
984263bc
MD
58all interconnected by tunnels.
59Your quest is to find and shoot the evil Wumpus that resides elsewhere in
60the cave without running into any pits or using up your limited supply of
61arrows.
dbdcd5cf 62.Pp

72Play the hard version -- more pits, more bats, and a generally more
73dangerous cave.
dbdcd5cf 74.It Fl p Ar pits
984263bc
MD
75Specifies the number of rooms in the cave which contain bottomless pits.
76The default is three.
dbdcd5cf 77.It Fl r Ar rooms
984263bc

78Specifies the number of rooms in the cave.
79The default cave size is twenty-five rooms.
dbdcd5cf 80.It Fl t Ar tunnels
984263bc

82another room.
83Beware, too many tunnels in a small cave can easily cause it to collapse!
84The default cave room has three tunnels to other rooms.

87While wandering through the cave you'll notice that, while there are tunnels
88everywhere, there are some mysterious quirks to the cave topology, including
89some tunnels that go from one room to another, but not necessarily back!
90Also, most pesky of all are the rooms that are home to large numbers of bats,
91which, upon being disturbed, will en masse grab you and move you to another
92portion of the cave (including those housing bottomless pits, sure
93death for unwary explorers).
dbdcd5cf 94.Pp
984263bc

95Fortunately, you're not going into the cave without any weapons or tools,
96and in fact your biggest aids are your senses; you can often smell the
97rather odiferous Wumpus up to
dbdcd5cf 98.Em two
984263bc
MD
99rooms away, and you can always feel the drafts created by the occasional
100bottomless pit and hear the rustle of the bats in caves they might be
101sleeping within.
dbdcd5cf 102.Pp
984263bc
MD
103To kill the wumpus, you'll need to shoot it with one of your magic arrows.
104Fortunately, you don't have to be in the same room as the creature, and can
105instead shoot the arrow from as far as three or four rooms away!
dbdcd5cf 106.Pp
984263bc
MD
107When you shoot an arrow, you do so by typing in a list of rooms that you'd
108like it to travel to.
109If at any point in its travels it cannot find a tunnel to the room you
110specify from the room it's in, it will instead randomly fly down one of the
111tunnels, possibly, if you're real unlucky, even flying back into the room
112you're in and hitting you!
