The Citadel of Chaos


The door opens, allowing you into a large, circular room.
You scratch your head quizzically.
In the centre of the room you can see a small 'island',
surrounded by a wide trench, on which stands a chest,
locked with metal fastenings.
The trench is too wide to jump and is very deep.
Just inside the door is a length of rope.
A door leads from the room, opposite the door you came in through.

Will you:

Ignore the box and walk round the trench to the other door ?

Cast a Strength Spell and leap across the trench ?

Pick up the rope and formulate a plan ?
