This is an odd failure on the part of the parser. I have no idea how to fix it. I can’t blur the answer to the third command, as the forum interface doesn’t allow spoiler blurring within quoted blocks. I don’t think it’s a spoiler that Flogg and Grabby have desks, as that location is easy to find.
>look under desk Which do you mean, Grabby’s desk or Flogg’s desk? >flogg's Phineas Flogg doesn’t appear to have any desk. >look under flogg's desk Mounted on the underside of the desktop is a small metal button.
What’s happening here is that “flogg’s desk” is understood, because there is definitely such an object in scope. But the disambiguation question/answer gives a bad output.
Normal disambiguation is one thing, but in this case I think something special may be needed. Suggestions would be welcome!
