A hollow voice says “plugh”

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the game Adventure, or as I knew it in my early CP/M days when I started high school, ADVENT.

I spent close to 120 man-hours on ADVENT plopped in front of a GNAT System 9 equipped out with the famous Lear Siegler ADM-3A terminal, dual eight inch floppy drives, running on CP/M. Somewhere in one of my various droppings of stuff I have printouts of two complete Adventure runs along with some hand drawn maps of Colossal Cave and the two mazes (all alike, and all different)

And here I thought that XYZZY was a nonsense word, but it turns out there’s more to it.
