Section - Windows

A window is a kind of door. A window is usually closed, unopenable and undescribed. Understand "window" as a window. The description of a window is usually "[if noun is open]Just an empty frame.[otherwise]Dusty glass panes."

Understand the open property as describing a window.

Instead of opening or closing a window: say "[if noun is open]It's already busted open.[otherwise]It looks like these windows have been rusted shut for years."

[Exercise 5.2][Instead of attacking a window: say "Looks like a lot of other people beat you to it."]

Understand "break [something] with [something preferably held]" as throwing it at (with nouns reversed).

A thing can be hefty. A thing is usually hefty. The driver's license, receipt, pack of cigarettes, and photo are not hefty. Instead of throwing something not hefty at a closed window: say "Like that's going to break anything." Instead of inserting something hefty into the wallet: say "Not gonna fit."

Instead of throwing something (called the missile) at a closed window (called the targeted window):

now missile is in the other side of the targeted window;

if other side of targeted window is Staging Area:

now missile is undescribed;

now the targeted window is open;

say "[The missile] smashes through [the targeted window], shattering it."

Instead of throwing something at an open window (called the broken window):

say "[The broken window] is already broken."

Instead of attacking a window: say "Nice thought, but the last thing you need is a sliced open hand. Maybe you could use something less likely to bleed."

Instead of attacking an open window: say "You've already busted it open."

Understand "climb in/into/through [a door]" as entering. Understand "look through/in/inside/into [a closed window]" as a mistake ("The glass is too filthy for you to see anything on the other side.").

The can't go through undescribed doors rule is not listed in the check going rulebook.

Report going through a window: say "You [first time]brush away remnants of broken glass and [only]wriggle through the window."

Instead of going through tiny frosted window: say "It's too small for you to wriggle through." Instead of going through dust-covered window: say "It's too high up for you to pull yourself through."
