From the P-G:
Less than one day after Allegheny County re-posted new assessment numbers on its website it has modified the procedure for finding them.The new values are posted on www.alleghenycounty.us. To find them click on the ship on the seal of Allegheny County in the upper right hand corner. A new window will open with a prompt. You will be in a dungeon. There will be a KNIFE, a SHOVEL, and a GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL. The only exit is NORTH, but the DOOR is locked.
The new real estate values, available now only for properties in Pittsburgh and Mount Oliver, were put back on line Monday, but they are on a separate page from the current base-year numbers. The change made overnight reduces the number of steps needed to find new values, but it appears to make it more complicated to find the old values for comparison.
Pick up the KNIFE, SHOVEL, and GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL. Use the KNIFE on the LOCK and the DOOR will open. GO through the DOOR into the HALLWAY.
EXITS ARE SOUTH, NORTH, AND EAST
You are standing in a room with a DRAGON, the dessicated corpses of property assessors surround his sleeping body. There is light coming from an unknown source above you.
Use GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL
There is nothing to use GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL on
You begin, quietly, to dig a hole in the middle of the room. Suddenly, you strike something hard. It is a BOX. The DRAGON stirs slightly.
BOX is locked in an overly complicated manner.
Use KNIFE on BOX.
You jimmy open the lock on the BOX. Inside there is a MAP.
The map is from FORMER COUNTY EXECUTIVE DAN ONORATO. He apologizes for the problem with the assessments, but would like to remind you that he didn't raise property taxes while in office. Also, your new assessment numbers are in THE CASTLE.
Use SHOVEL on FORMER COUNTY EXECUTIVE DAN ONORATO.
Yeah, I know, right?
There is a DRAGON asleep several feet away from you and a hole in front of you containing a BOX and a MAP. Exit is WEST.
You put the MAP into your inventory.
You are in a hallway. Your Exits are NORTH SOUTH and EAST.
You enter a very dark room.
You enter an even darker room
You are eaten by a Grue
YOU HAVE DIED
TOTAL POINTS 150.
