From Thanet to New Romney
by Daniel Gunnell

From Thanet to New Romney is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2020 by Daniel Gunnell (as Kentish Plover). This game is a sequel to Kentish Plover.

In this sequel to Kentish Plover, you decide to spend some more time exploring Margate and the surrounding area, before returning home to write more interactive fiction. You begin in Ylloh, a Kent-based company that produces clocks.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.
