Setting[ edit ] Zork is set in "the ruins of an ancient empire lying far underground". The player is a nameless adventurer "who is venturing into this dangerous land in search of wealth and adventure". The goal is to return from exploring the "Great Underground Empire" GUE, for short alive and with all treasures needed to complete each adventure,  ultimately inheriting the title of Dungeon Master. The dungeons are stocked with many novel creatures, objects, and locations, among them the ferocious but light-fearing grueszorkmids the GUE's currencyand Flood Control Dam 3—all of which are referenced by subsequent Infocom text adventures.
Let me give you a virtual tour. I travel a lot myself, sometimes to the unusual, weird and wacky. Earth Nutshell is where I share my experiences. Interested in visiting North Korea for yourself? Barbed wire lined all fences, tank traps enclosed us and the remainder was a laden, active minefield.
One million soldiers stood guard overseeing from outposts, gazing across the border into forbidden lands once unified and the eyes of the South Korean military.
The peace treaty was never signed, the war between the North and South of Korea still rages over 60 years on, at least technically, anyway, and the Demilitarized Zone DMZthe border between two countries now worlds apart, serves as the best reminder. It seems dramatic, but that is the reality.
There may not be bullets flying overhead or active servicemen crossing the border, but tensions are high. It was an exciting prospect to visit the DMZ for myself. I was told not to argue. How strict were they? Was it loaded with propaganda? Was everyone on edge? Was physical militarization visible?
Either way, I forecasted a massive contrast to the tourist-friendly, dumbed down Disneyland-like characterisation you get on a tour from the South Korean side.
In fact, if it was anything like the rest of North Korea, I can expect to bow at some point, to receive stern looks from all I meet, a set of draconian rules, stringent government minders monitoring me at all times…and military checkpoints, lots of them.
I wanted to see how that goes.

The Yanggakdo Hotel lobby populates early for tour departures, mainly Chinese tourists — by 9am the hotel is a deserted, creepy ghost town and the receptionists cut power to the entire floor building until evening. Our hotel to the right, Juche tower in the distance and northern Pyongyang to the left.
Abandoning island isolation, our bus shuttled across Pyongyang. Residents roam sparsely, by foot or cycle — everybody moves with purpose.
The colour pallet was dull, citizens are styled in monotone dim shades of clothing similar to that of surrounding crumbling, faded Soviet apartment blocks.
Green parks and sunny riverbanks are empty. To say this city is repressive is an understatement. The road out of Pyongyang. Eerily desolate for a capital city. Some Chinese-made vehicles can be spotted. The metropolis ends here.
What follows is a desolate rural no-mans-land without end in sight. This is the Pyongyang-Kaesong Motorway. The Arch of Reunification, the southern gateway to the city of Pyongyang. I am facing north looking into the city.
Unofficially labelled the Reunification Highway, the Pyongyang-Kaesong motorway is a six-lane controlled access link between well…Pyongyang and Kaesong through Sariwonand hence to the DMZ.Welcome to the website of writer & engineer Jon Thrower.

2 pitcher in Boston's rotation. Barbed wire line all fences. Tank traps enclose us. The remainder is a laden, active minefield. Let me take you inside the DMZ - from North Korea's side. Media / Political Bias.
