There is a great magnificent wall to your east

Look at wall
There is a small gate in the wall.

Open gate
The gate is locked.

Unlock gate
The gate is still locked.

You see a small key laying next to a weather beaten fisherman in a gray tunic leaning against a wall. The wall has a gate in it.

Pick up key
As you been over to grab the key the fisherman's foot springs around as quick as a whip and picks up the key with his smallest toe.

Talk to fisherman
You begin to introduce yourself "Hello sir my name is .... " but the fisherman interrupts:
"Your an adventurer."
You quickly reply "How did you know?"
"You seem to have an illusion of free will about you, a sense of mystery in your eye, and I can access any player's character sheet" he says with a grin.
"Now If you want to get past this wall and onto the next challenge in this outdated form of entertainment you must tell me the password which for simplicity's sake is your name."

Say your name

Wait! What is your name?

  • $\begingroup$ Wouldn't it be just "An Adventurer" with your(sic) being the statement from the man? $\endgroup$ May 24, 2017 at 14:45
