How It Begins
The opening lines of Poe's The Raven are quoted. You appear to be a gentleman of leisure. You are on a velvet couch in a shadowy study, wearing a gold ring. The study's obvious features include a writing desk, velvet curtains, a window and a fireplace, and a bust of Pallas sits over the door.
You can hear a tapping sound from somewhere.
