You approach Pig Alley. There are overturned cars and trash scattered everywhere. The Alley is very dark. There are sounds coming from the darkness. Gruntings and mutterings, groans and moans, shrieking and cackling, rasping sounds and grating sounds, thumplng sounds and plopping sounds all assault you from the darkness. The smells are so bad they make you dizzy. They are so bad they'd make a vulture gag. As your eyes adjust to the darkness you see many pairs of evil eyes glinting at you from the darkness of the Alley.

If you turn and run, you can go...
    this way,   that way,   or the other way

Or you can walk into the alley...
    jauntily, whistling and looking down to see where you're going 
    looking around carefully and with your hand on the handle of your sword 

Cast a 'protect' spell, and THEN...
    go into the alley.
