Neither have I (that, or whatever it was I may have mistaken for that), but it's popped up before and I find it intriguing to read as source. Like reading sheet music, maybe, knowing that it's going to be much better than any real playing of it (for those that can do that!).

grassy starting area
You are standing on a flat, grassy plane. You hear some upbeat, catchy music. There is a trail leading off to the east.

>Juggle
That's not a verb I recognise.

>Sit
(on the extra life)
That's not something you can sit down on.


(No, not expecting you to have to fix this. I just thought I'd stress-test it before delving into it properly, and it came out funny enough to mention. I may have a straighter look later.)

You don't:
That's not something you can sit down on.


The extra lives in your inventory are the only thing you can interact with in that area, so it assumes any verbs that need an object apply to the extra lives.

$vowels .= 'g';

…I guess you could make the case that 'g' is sort of a vowel sometimes, since it appears in a few vowel trigraphs/quadragraphs (igh, eigh, ough). (I wouldn't agree with it, but one could make the case.)

(I missed the /xx required to modify the [] that contained the $vowels that was composed specifically to allow multigraphs (and ligatures) across all internationalisation rules, thus allowing "ough", etc, but not "g" alone. I use/edit it so rarely and it's often better to just test against each element of a @vowels list until first match, or even a %vowels one with 'conditions' attached as key/value pairings where more efficient than each element being (optionally) delimiter-split from its own unique list of qualifications (that isn't actually unique, so you could perhaps munge them together with like brethren). In this context, which isn't the one I do use it for.)

…I can't find anything about /xx allowing multigraphs in []…
