Basic Tutorial -- Step 4: Create another location---|------ Back | Next | Index Make a second location Let's make a location for being at the top of a tree. Type the shortcut for a new rule, Control-N. You should get a third rule. You may notice a "#3" in the upper left corner of the rule editor. Once again, the editor will automatically fill in the first field (context) with the context of the previously selected rule ("forest"). Let's change the context to a new one. To get the editing cursor to that field, click or tab to it. Type "tree top" in the context field, replacing the previous text. Then press Tab, and type "look" in the command field. Then tab to the reply field. You can then type, "You are at the top of a huge Sequoia, swaying in the breeze.". Test Now let's check out our work. You can click on "climb a tree". Oops! If you "look", you'll see you aren't actually in the tree top location yet, because we haven't made the rule say it moves you anywhere. Let's correct that in the next section.
