St. Lawrence U. Second Performance (First Performance click here)

The Samsa front yard
You stand outside the home of Gregor Samsa. He woke up a few mornings ago to find that he had
been transformed, during the night, into a giant insect. It looks like rain.
There is a hospital looming behind the house. Type 'enter' or 'in' to visit the house. Perhaps you can find a
script and costume that will transform you as well. There is a closet in the foyer that may contain these items.

If you're new to mooing and want some help type 'help'.
Or type help -text- such as help say or help go or help quit
Typing 'l' or 'look' will always tell you where you are. (try 'look plaque')

NOTICE:: Upon entering the house you won't be able to say or emote unless you ge
t a costume from the closet.
(without a costume you can use the 'page' command - type 'help page' for directions.)

Once inside type: look closet
This will give you a list of available costumes and directions on how to 'take one from the closet'.

You see a Bronze Plaque, a security camera (recording), a Gold Plaque, and The Samsa House here.

JohnS says, "Well, Grete was quite torn up about her father"
RickS laughs!
JohnS says, "i mean, kiling her brother and ignoring her and all"
RebeccaD says, "Rick, I'm sure using the second transcripts will be okay with ev eryone, but we'll probably need to see them first, just to be sure..."
RickS says, "fine."
RebeccaD asks, "Who killed Gregor this time?"
KateF arrives from The Foyer
JohnS says, "i don't know"

RickS says, "neat"
JohnS says, "i think i was alone in the room at the time"
RickS says, "I like that you have that choice."
KateF says, "I was having more fun with it this time; more comfortable, I think, with teh technical aspects of it all."

KateF says, "Used the auto responses."
RickS says, "use the built-in texts. Less this time."
RebeccaD says, "Great."
KateF says, "I liked this one a lot. And we got to "play" with some new people. "
A loudspeaker blares, "The moon dazzled us!"
RickS asks, "Is Barrault's_Guest one of the St.L poeple?"
RebeccaD says, "It looks like Mrs. Samsa, the doctor, and an abserver are still doing something inside the house. Those costumes haven't been returned to the c loset yet."
KateF says, "Don't think so..."
RickS says, "hmmmm"
RickS flings open the front door and walks in. The door closes behind her.
RebeccaD says, "Yes, Laurie couldn't get in as herself for some reason, so when she finally got the right browser, she went in as a guest."

JohnS says, "yeah"
KateF exclaims, "OH!"
RebeccaD says, "Might be MikeS and Laurie, actually"
JohnS says, "OH"
JohnS says, "I didn't realize that"
KateF says, "Oh, nevermind. I could not for the life of me figure out who MikeS was. duh."
RebeccaD says, "Juli told me that MikeS is from SLU (our friendly IT guy) and sh e gave him his own ID because he already knew about MOOS"
JohnS says, "okay, it took me longer than you"
KateF says, "Don't I feel silly."
KateF exclaims, "Cool!"
KateF asks, "Was Juli in there observing at all?"
KateF says, "I didn't see her."
RebeccaD asks, "Where are they and what are they doing, I wonder?"
JohnS says, "I saw her, once"
KateF says, "And where were you? I couldn't find you for ages."
RebeccaD says, "Actually, Juli spent most of her time in the lobby and finally h ad to leave early."
KateF says, "Oh; too bad."
JohnS says, "they're still in the hallway"
RebeccaD says, "I think she enjoyed herself, nevertheless."
RebeccaD says, "Let's go watch what's happening in the hallway. We just can't s ay anything without costumes..."

JohnS says, "We do what we can."
