The purpose of this thread is to reenact the 1982 game Zork. I will type what the character does, and you say what he should do. The most people saying what the character should do wins the vote. You can go north, south, east, west, interact with objects, and look around. And now, it starts!

ZORK is a game of adventure, danger, and low cunning. In it you will explore some of the most amazing territory ever seen by mortals. No computer should be without one!"

You can’t do that. Only suggest what to do next.

Forest Path
This is a path winding through a dimly lit forest. The path heads north-south here. One particularly large tree with some low branches stands at the edge of the path.
You hear in the distance the chirping of a song bird

(from now on I will shorten the game’s descriptions)

You are about 10 feet up into the tree when you see a jewel encrusted egg in a bird’s nest.
