If you want to end your adventure early, say "quit". To suspend your adventure such that you can continue later, say "SUSPEND" (or "PAUSE" or "SAVE"). To see what hours the cave is normally open, say "HOURS". To see how well you're doing, say "SCORE". To get full credit for a treasure, you must have left it safely in the building, though you get partial credit just for locating it. You lose points for getting killed, or for quitting, though the former costs you more. There are also points based on how much (if any) of the cave you've managed to explore; in particular, there is a large bonus just for getting in (to distinguish the beginners from the rest of the pack), and there are other ways to determine whether you've been through some of the more harrowing sections. If you think you've found all the treasures, just keep exploring for a while. If nothing interesting happens, you haven't found them all yet. If something interesting *does* happen,it means you're getting a bonus and have an opportunity to garner many more points in the master's section. I may occasionally offer hints if you seem to be having trouble. If I do, I'll warn you in advance how much it will affect your score to accept the hints. Finally, to save paper, you may specify "BRIEF", which tells me never to repeat the full description of a place unless you explicitly ask me to.
