Welcome to Border Zone.  This story of international intrigue has three chapters, each telling a different piece of the story from a different point of view.  You can play each chapter independently, but you will enjoy the story more if you play them in the proper order.

The chapters are:

	Chapter 1: The Train
	Chapter 2: The Border
	Chapter 3: The Assassination
	
Which chapter would you like to play: 1, 2, 3, or (R)estore?

You wake up. The room is spinning very gently round your head.  Or at least it would be if you could see it which you can't.

It is pitch black.

Another routine day of drudgery aboard the Stellar Patrol Ship Feinstein.  This morning's assignment for a certain lowly Ensign Seventh Class: scrubbing the filthy metal deck at the port end of Level Nine.  With your Patrol-issue self-contained multi-purpse all-weather scrub brush you shine the floor with a diligence born of the knowledge that at any moment dreaded Ensign First Class Blather, the bane of your shipboard existence, could appear.

Deck Nine
This is a featureless corridor similar to every other corridor on the ship.  It curves away to the starboard, and a gangway leads up.  To port is the entrance to one of the ship's primary escape pods.  The pod bulkhead is closed.

Inside the Barrow
You are inside an ancient barrow hidden deep within a dark forest. The barrow opens into a narrow tunnel at its southern end. You can see a faint glow at the far end.
A strangely familiar brass lantern is lying on the ground.
A sword of Elvish workmanship is on the ground.

Zork III

Endless Stair                                      Score: 0, Moves: 0

As in a dream, you see yourself tumbling down a great, dark staircase. All about you are shadowy images of struggles against fierce opponents and diabolical traps. These give way to another round of images: of imposing stone figures, a cool, clear lake, and, now, of an old, yet oddly youthful man. He turns toward you slowly, his long, silver hair dancing about him in a fresh breeze. "You have reached the final test, my friend! You are proved clever and powerful, but this is not yet enough! Seek me when you feel yourself worthy!" The dream dissolves around you as his last words echo through the void....

Endless Stair
You are at the bottom of a seemingly endless stair, winding its way upward beyond your vision. An eerie light, coming from all around you, casts strange shadows on the walls. To the south is a dark and winding trail.
Your old friend, the brass lantern, is at your feet.
