== clearing
The forest road stops here, and the gaps between the trees widen into a
patch of un-forest. The sky above is clear apart from a few harmless clouds.
== hill
A flat, broad hill interrupts the dense-ish forest here. Only grass and
small bushes grow on the hill.
== chamber
This is a cramped space just inside the hidden opening in the hill. The
sun gets in enough to illuminate the place. There are some scribblings on
the wall.
== hall
It's hard to believe that this kind of room can fit under a hill. It's tall,
long, and quite spacious. Hieroglyphs adorn all four of the walls. The
floor slants a bit.
== cave
This is a perfectly cylindrical chamber. An oversized fire-pit takes up most
of the floor space in the middle of the room. Ancient runes run along the
circumference of the wall. It's hot and stuffy.
== crypt
The air is stale and smells a bit metallic. Three impenetrable sarcophagi
sit next to each other on the floor. On the walls are numerous finely
inscribed ideograms.
== flashlight
The flashlight, a trusty Flexmann 520, has been serving you for countless
== rope
The rope is 5 meters and 31 centimeters long. It's twined together from
sturdy fiber of some kind.
== car
Small, kind of old, and beginning to rust. But it still gets you places.
== brook
Clear water flows over and around a few fixed stones in the brook. It's
probably from a spring higher up in the hills somewhere. It looks chilly.
== grass
It's lustrous and, you know, green.
== bushes
Those are some seriously uninteresting bushes.
== door
It's made of stone but covered with dirt and grass on top.
== trees
Autumn trees are just so lovely. They look like they're just about to drop
all their leaves -- red, yellow, brown ones -- to the ground.
== leaves
They look like the kind of leaves that would love a good rustle.
== sign
It says "LEAVE " with big, scrawly lettering. Maybe a warning or a threat.
On closer inspection, though, it looks like there might once have been one
more letter at the end, but it has since been worn away.
== basket
It's fixed to the ground under the sign. For some reason it reminds you of
objects used during religious ceremonies for offerings of different kinds.
== hanoi
The rods! The disks! So monstrous in its simplicity! So beautiful in its
== tiny disk
It's a bit heavy.
== small disk
It's very heavy.
== middle disk
It's enormously heavy.
== large disk
It's indescribably heavy.
== huge disk
It's so heavy that this description doesn't do its weight justice.
== left rod
It's a rod and it's on the left.
== middle rod
It's a rod and it's between the left rod and the right rod.
== right rod
It's a rod and it's on the right. It's made of liquorice.
Nah, just kidding! It looks to be made of copper or something.
== helmet
Once surely part of a big metal uniform, now it's just the helmet. The visor,
seems to be fixed in place. The whole headpiece look like a big pot without a
handle. The metal is thin and light, so the helmet doesn't weigh much.
== fire
It's massive, and sort of yellow-red-orangeish. Also, it's really, really hot!
== pedestal
It's made of stone. It points up from the ground. It appears to contain a
deadly, unreachable contraption built to discourage tomb raiders.
== sarcophagi
They're boxes containing deceased people. Better just leave them be.
== butterfly
It's made of gold, silver, enamel, diamond, ruby, emerald, and various other
precious stones and metals you can't identify. You feel rich just looking
at it.
== remark:car-full-of-leaves
Great. Now your car is full of leaves.
== remark:door-under-grass
You discover a door in the hill, under the thick grass!
== remark:passageway-opens-up
The ground rumbles and shakes a bit.
A passageway opens up to the south, into the caverns.
== remark:floor-reveals-hole
The whole floor tips, and reveals a hole beneath the wall.
== remark:floor-hides-hole
The whole floor tips back, hiding the hole again.
== remark:bare-hands-carry-water
Your bare hands aren't very good at carrying water.
== remark:car-is-now-wet
What doesn't discolor the seats collects in miserable little puddles on the
floor mats.
== remark:fire-dies
The fire wanes and dies out.
== remark:walk-past-fire-too-hot
You try to walk past the fire, but it's too hot!
== remark:alarm-starts
An alarm starts sounding in the whole cavern.
== remark:alarm-stops
The alarm stops.
== remark:cavern-collapses
The alarm starts sounding louder.
The whole cavern shakes, and falls in on itself.
You die.

Congratulations! You found the treasure and got out with it

== phrase:leaves
