  • Section 4 - The Poetic Interlude Scene

    Poetic Interlude is a scene. Poetic Interlude begins when the current poem is unread. Poetic Interlude ends when the current poem is read.

    When Poetic Interlude begins (this is the starting an interlude rule):
        pause the game;
        clear the screen;
        choose row with a line-number of 1 from the textual content of the current poem;
        let First Line be the line entry;
        choose row 1 in the table of selected lines;
        change the line entry to the First Line;
        move the player to Recitation, without printing a room description;
        consider the poem display rule.
