I am working on a story about a light house and it has 5 levels. I have defined each level (room) as an individual chapter to help me tell each level apart. I am using a staircase in the middle to allow the player to go up and down. I have used some text from a few different source code to come up with the following.
[code]A Staircase is a kind of door. A Staircase is fixed in place. A staircase is always open. A staircase is never openable. Understand “stairs” or “stair” or “staircase” as a staircase. Understand “upstairs” or “downstairs” as a staircase. The description of a staircase is usually “[The item described] leads [item described direction].” The description of the staircase is "Leading up and around you see a set of stairs that take you to the other levels of this lighthouse. "
Instead of climbing a staircase:
try entering the noun.
Understand “go down [staircase]” as climbing. Understand “go up [staircase]” as climbing.
The only think I need to know now is how to use this so that the player can go up and down to each level.
My current levels include:
Ground Floor: “The Lower Level”
Second Floor: “The Food Store Room”
Third Floor: “The Bunk Room”
Fourth Floor: “The Living and Cooking Room”
Fifth Floor: “The Light”
Do I have to have a staircase in each room and say that one room is above and another is below? I am not sure how to word this.
Any help would be appreciated.
