You begin praying   
to TyrYet remains that one of the Aesir who is called Tyr:
he is most daring, and best in stoutness of heart, and he
has much authority over victory in battle; it is good for
men of valor to invoke him. It is a proverb, that he is
Tyr-valiant, who surpasses other men and does not waver.
He is wise, so that it is also said, that he that is wisest
is Tyr-prudent. This is one token of his daring: when the
Aesir enticed Fenris-Wolf to take upon him the fetter Gleipnir,
the wolf did not believe them, that they would loose him,
until they laid Tyr's hand into his mouth as a pledge. But
when the Aesir would not loose him, then he bit off the hand
at the place now called 'the wolf's joint;' and Tyr is one-
handed, and is not called a reconciler of men.

affected a Logrus-ghost as strongly? Had it really been my
father, then, who had brought me here? And had he felt I might
need the extra edge his weapon could provide? I wanted to
think so, to believe that he had been more than a Pattern-ghost.

the air of having been made by a committee. But all Goddesses
and Gods, whether they say they made the world or not, have
very detailed short-term plans for it which they are determined
to carry out. Consequently they tend to push people into the
required actions by the use of coincidence or Prophecy, or just
by narrowing down your available choices of what to do next:

there is only one choice left to you.

would tell a playerThese strange creatures live mostly on the surface of the
earth, gathering together in societies of various forms, but
occasionally a stray will descend into the depths and commit
mayhem among the dungeon residents who, naturally, often
resent the intrusion of such beasts. They are capable of
using weapons and magic, and it is even rumored that the
Wizard of Yendor is a member of this species.

puddles of slime, but they both live and move, feeding on
metal or wood as well as the occasional dungeon explorer to

But we were not on a station platform. We were on the track ahead

tightly onward through its fifteen-foot sinus, gathering unholy
speed and driving before it a spiral, re-thickening cloud of the
pallid abyss vapor. It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster
than any subway train -- a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic
bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes
forming and unforming as pustules of greenish light all over the
tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic
penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its
kind had swept so evilly free of all litter.

Antheridium: The zeroes are his boulderI worked the lever well under, and stretched my back; the end
of the stone rose up, and I kicked the fulcrum under. Then,
when I was going to bear down, I remembered there was
something to get out from below; when I let go of the lever,
the stone would fall again. I sat down to think, on the root
of the oak tree; and, seeing it stand about the ground, I saw
my way. It was lucky I had brought a longer lever. It would
just reach to wedge under the oak root.
Bearing it down so far would have been easy for a heavy man,
but was a hard fight for me. But this time I meant to do it
if it killed me, because I knew it could be done. Twice I
got it nearly there, and twice the weight bore it up again;
but when I flung myself on it the third time, I heard in my
ears the sea-sound of Poseidon. Then I knew this time I
would do it; and so I did.

farmers use, it helps keep things organised when they can only pile onto you from one direction. Some players go the whole hog and surround the fort with static monsters (either blue jellies or quivering blobs, I can never remember which) to stop giants picking the boulders up.

Yeah, farming can be quite involved. :-)

A bit late, but...

Quivering blobs aren't sessile. They're very slow, but they can move. The only real choices for building a fort are blue jellies and spotted jellies. (Molds are also sessile, but they can't survive having boulders dropped on them. The OracleDelphi under towering Parnassus, where Apollo's oracle was,
plays an important part in mythology. Castalia was its
sacred spring; Cephissus its river. It was held to be the
center of the world, so many pilgrims came to it, from
foreign countries as well as Greece. No other shrine rivaled
it. The answers to the questions asked by the anxious
seekers for Truth were delivered by a priestess who went into
a trance before she spoke.
