CONTEXT
Athanor takes place in the south of Italy in the 12th Century. You are playing as a Franciscan monk, sent by his Holy order in order to make an inquiry in an abbey where suspect events have aroused many fears. You will lead this inquiry in order to discover the mysteries lying within this abbey. Let your conscience be your guide and you may discover greater secrets that you could have thought of.

SYNTACTIC ANALYZER
Playing through Athanor, you will have to type your orders such as :

Verb + Noun

In some cases, you may be allowed to use more specific commands such as :
