>Space out, forget your mugging plan, and flirt with him. Ask him to lay in the bushes with you, talk about life, and admire the stars!
At the last minute, the mugging plan slips your mind and you decide to pop out and strike up a friendly conversation instead. ->
Unfortunately, you seem to have hidden too well. He didn't see you until the moment you popped out. now he thinks you actually are trying to mug him. He challenges you to a DUEL, which, by the fundamental laws of the universe, you are forced to accept. ->
The DUEL begins! An extra option appears at the end of your DUEL DIRECTORY, allowing you to DELINEATE any DEED that you DECIDE to DO.

>DISROBE this DUNCE of his DEBONAIR monocle. It might be gold! It's not gold, but it is quite DAZZLING.
>DOFF his hat as well, as it is well-known that DANDIES often DEPOSIT DOLLARS into their caps for safe keeping.
You DECIDE to DEPRIVE the DANDY of his DOLLARS. He has a DECENT DEPOSIT of DOLLARS in his hat. The DUEL pauses for a moment as you stash your cash in your inventory. ->
You could not DEFY the DESIRE to DON the hat. The DANDY's turn begins. ->
Oh DEAR. -> In the DUEL'S DISASTROUS DENOUEMENT, he DEPORTS you to a DIFFERENT DIMENSION.
The DUEL is DONE. You were DEFEATED.
Somehow, you're now standing in a small, dark room. There is a poster of a strange green man on the wall behind you, and a note on the table in front of you. There's also a door on the back wall and a window that lets you see a strange, alien sky.
You have no fucking idea what's going on, and you lost your monocle.
>Do a victory dance, for although you were defeated in battle, you were victorious in spirit. HELL YEAH! YOU GOT A SICK HAT AND 300 BUCKS! THIS SITUATION MIGHT BE SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN THE ONE YOU STARTED OFF IN! >Consider in hindsight, you really were mugging that dandy dude.
Oh. You probably deserve whatever just happened to you. >Read the note.
This doesn't seem to mean anything at all! You put the note in your inventory just in case it ends up being useful at some point. >Peer through that window
You push the table out of the way and look out the window. ->
Through the fog and translucent black clouds, you see some strange looking buildings. Looking down, you can't see anything but a thick layer of fog that obscures the buildings' heights. All you know is that you're pretty high up. >Press Menu
This is as good a time as any to check out the MENU. ->
Unfortunately, only one option seems to be unlocked right now. ->
The PARTY only has one member right now. The empty spots on the right indicate that your PARTY can have up to 4 members. ->
Further inspection of the PARTY's only member reveals that... you don't even know her name! This is a serious problem that must be rectified immediately.
Tear poster down, see if it hides anything on the wall behind it.
Also, maybe if it's an advertisement for a teaching position, you should apply for it. You're a master at English, and if you teach the class entirely in English, you'll be raking in those sweet sweet alien Moneydollars.

>Tear poster down, see if it hides anything on the wall behind it.
Standard operating procedure dictates that one is required to tear down any posters found in an otherwise empty room. There will always be something hidden. This is a fundamental law of the universe. You cache the poster in your inventory in case you find someone who can help you translate it. It's possible that there could be a work opportunity for a native English speaker. ->
As expected, the green guy's red eye is actually a button with a strangely familiar arrow on it. ->
The room seems to have moved somewhere else. The window is now blocked by a wall, but the door opens up into another room.
