Verbs

  • STUDY: As you study the compass, you think you could probably TURN, PUSH, TAP and NIBBLE it.
  • TURN: You turn your compass, trying to get the needle to stop moving. It doesn't.
Others see: <Person> turns <his/her> compass this way and that, but doesn't seem to be having any luck.
  • PUSH: You point your compass until the needle lines up with north. Now you know which way north is!
Others see: <Person> points <his/her> compass until its needle lines up with north. <He/She> appears pleased with herself!
  • TAP: You tap your compass, causing the needle to spin wildly. How will you find your way now?
Others see: <Person> taps <his/her> compass, causing the needle to spin wildly. Hopefully, no one left <him/her> in charge of directions.
  • NIBBLE: In a moment of true exasperation, you try biting the compass when nothing else works. That doesn't work either, except now your teeth hurt.
Others see: <Person> bites down on <his/her> compass, looking exasperated. <He/She> then winces in pain, looking like <he/she> didn't accomplish much.
