  MOVE #0

With the whine of bullets humming in your ears like annoying mosquitos, you
drop through a gaping hole, hoping it will lead to the central chamber of the
Tepotzteco Pyramid, and not another Mazatec trap. It's about time you found the
power key and got it back to the Army types in D. C. As your boots hit the
solid stone floor there is a scraping and sliding noise as a massive stone jams
into place above you.

This is a vast, shadowy space. An evil smell mingles with the sound of dripping
water. Riverlets of viscous slime run down the eastern wall from an invisible
seam far above. Through a door to the south, in the center of a domed room is a
golden key, radiant in a shaft of white light. To your north is an open
doorway, eighteen feet high, through which a luminous glow emanates. A carved
stone panel is centered in the western wall.

If this is the central chamber you can't be far from the key. The legends say:

He who holds the key controls the Earth's pulse.
