  • PULL: You pull the strings of your mime marionette and send it into a crazy dance!
  • TURN: You turn your mime marionette around, twitching the strings to make it trudge wearily along.
  • POKE: You jerk the strings of your mime marionette, causing it to shudder under your control before collapsing to the ground -- that'll teach it!
  • TAP: Holding the strings at arm's length, you allow your mime marionette to dangle helplessly under your control -- you power freak!
  • RUB: You twist the strings tightly for just a second before letting your mime marionette spin in insane circles!
  • CLEAN: You untangle the mess of strings attached to your mime marionette. Maybe if you weren't so rough with it, you wouldn't have to do this as often!
  • POINT: You point theatrically at a painted mime marionette, twitching the strings to make it take a bow.
  • WAVE: You wave at a painted mime marionette, giving its strings a deft twitch to make it wave back.
  • SCREAM: You scream a few choice words at your mime marionette. It stares back vacantly.
  • BREAK: You try to make your mime marionette dance a wild jig, but only manage to tangle the strings beyond repair! You're going to have to find four new strings if you want to fix it.
  • note: this action will damage it and necessitate repair before use again.
  • Once broken, all actions will then result in the following message: But it's broken! You'll have to find four strings to fix it, first!
