Section 4 - Resurrection

[In versions 1-4 of the game, it was possible to die instantly in assorted ways. On an interpreter with working UNDO, it was possible to take this turn back, but a) some novice players may not realize this and b) some interpreters choked on trying to undo things given how very large the game state is.]

When play ends when the story has not ended finally:

wait for any key;

say "That is, that's what would have happened if [you] had done something so foolish. Shall we suppose [you] didn't? >";

if the player consents:

resume the story;

try looking.
