Chapter 3 - Enslave

Understand "enslave [something] to [something]" as enslaving it to. Understand "slave link [something] to [something]" as enslaving it to. Understand "martyr link [something] to [something]" as enslaving it to. Understand "slave [something] to [something]" as enslaving it to. Understand "slave-link [something] to [something]" as enslaving it to.

Enslaving it to is an action applying to two things.

Carry out enslaving it to:

now the noun protects blank;

now the second noun protects blank;

now the noun affects blank;

now the second noun affects the noun;

Report enslaving something to the player:

say "Now you control [the noun]." instead.

Report enslaving it to:

say "Now [the second noun] controls [if the noun is the player]you: a risky proposition[otherwise][the noun][end if]."

Enslaving something to something is labor.

After enslaving Clemens to the player:

say "You build the link, enslaving Clemens to yourself. It is an expedient Augustus has been using for years: now any attempt upon your life will instead kill your slave."

After enslaving a snoring Clemens to something which is not a person:

now Clemens is silent;

now Clemens does not incriminate the player;

say "Instantly Clemens is silent. And very still. Sort of statue-like, in fact."

Before enslaving the player to something which is not a person:

say "That would be a very bad idea, since enslaved to [the second noun], you would barely be able to move on your own volition, let alone speak." instead.
