13.14 WRITHE

When adventuring you may sometimes find yourself bound by a variety of  
things. Vampires can hold you in their grasp to feed from you, and      
quicksand can threaten to drag you down. To avoid this, you have the    
ability to WRITHE. This might be a fight in your mind, or by physically 
twisting and turning.                                                   

Typing WRITHE on its own will pick the first best thing to writhe from, 
though it will then take a couple of seconds before you twist yourself
free.                                                                   

If you are bound by several bindings you may choose with WRITHE FROM    
<type> where type is any of those below.
