Dungeon Corridor

You are in a short corridor of stone, with lit torches in brackets along the walls. Behind you on entering the corridor via the southern wall is a set of stairs leading upward.

In front of you heading north is short well lit passage way leading to a larger room. The stone wall of this passage however has been graffitied...

To the east a heavy iron bound door set in the dungeon corridor has been left wide open. Inside a large guard room is lit by numerous torches set in brackets along the wall. A table can be seen in the middle of the room and the sound of snoring can also be heard. Above to the door a sign reads ``Castle Prison''.

On the wall next to the prision door more graffiti can be seen...

`` You don't have to be ``damed'' to work here. But it helps!!! ''

To your left (westward), is a dark forbidding passage sloping downward. The passage, unlike the rest of this corridor, is carved directly out of the granite bed rock. A small wooden plaque with the edge closest to the passage chard, reads...

``Abandon all hope ye who enter here''

You can..
[Up Stairs] Climb the Stairs to the Castle Proper
[North] Lets see why ``Wumpus Rules!'', passage north
[Prison] Check out the Castle Prison, to the west
[Dark Passage] Enter Dark Forbidding Passage, eastward and down
