* ImprobableAimingSkills: Laying When you fire an arrow you can specify the path it travels as a string of room numbers (which works best if you have a good map of the caves). This makes laying in a course for an arrow like it's similar to guiding a cruise missile.

The Wumpus is a monster that lives in a cave of 20 rooms, connected by tunnels, in the shape of a dodecahedron - each room connects to three others. You start in one room, with five 'crooked arrows' that can fly around corners. The game gives you your room number, the numbers of the three rooms connected to yours, and warns you if Super Bats, BottomlessPits, or the Wumpus are in an adjacent room. But it doesn't tell you which of the three rooms the warning is coming from. By wandering from room to room, you build a map that can reveal the location of the Wumpus. Once you know that, you can shoot an arrow from up to five rooms away and guide it to the kill.
