 -} NOTE: THE WIZARD MAY APPEAR ONCE AND
    A WHILE AND CAST A SPELL ON YOU,
    DON'T WORRY. THE SPELL WILL WEAR OFF
    AFTER A WHILE. IF YOU CAN'T DO
    ANYTHING ELSE, JUST WAIT IT OUT.
    IT WOULD BE WISE TO SAVE THE GAME
    PERIODICALLY, AS A PRECAUTION IN
    IN CASE YOU MAKE A MISTAKE.

 -} YOU ARE NOW IN THE CAROUSEL ROOM.
    BECAUSE OF ITS RAPID SPINNING, YOU
    ARE DISORIENTED IN DIRECTION. YOU
    ARE TRYING TO GET TO THE RIDDLE ROOM
    WHICH LIES TO THE SE, BUT YOU MIGHT
    END UP SOMEWHERE ELSE. JUST MAKE
    YOUR WAY BACK TO THE CAROUSEL ROOM
    AND KEEP TRYING UNTIL YOU GET THERE.
    WHEN YOU GET TO THE RIDDLE ROOM, YOU
    WILL NEED TO SOLVE THE RIDDLE BEFORE
    YOU CAN GET TO THE PEARL ROOM. JUST
    SAY "A WELL", WHICH IS THE ANSWER
    TO THE RIDDLE.

       TELL ROBOT "PUSH TRIANGLE"
       TELL ROBOT "GO SOUTH"

       THEN "TAKE SPHERE" AND GO [N,W]
 
 -} IN THE LOW ROOM, YOUR COMPASS WILL
    BE QUITE UNRELIABLE, SO JUST DO WHAT
