now the current terrain is a random terrain in the current room;

now the weather-terrain sentence is "(This is a terrain sentence for an unknown case involving [the current terrain].)";

if the current terrain is grass:

now the terrain sentence is "The [current terrain] lies flattened and matted on the ground.";

otherwise if the current terrain is moss:

now the terrain sentence is "[current terrain] grows here in a broad carpet.";

otherwise if the current terrain is fallen leaves:

now the terrain sentence is "[current terrain] cover the ground here.";

otherwise if the current terrain is sand:

now the terrain sentence is "[current terrain] yields underfoot with each step.";

otherwise if the current terrain is mud:

now the terrain sentence is "A few blades of grass struggle in an overwhelming sea of [current terrain].";

otherwise if the current terrain is pebbles:

now the terrain sentence is "Here, [current terrain] cover the ground.";

otherwise if the current terrain is bare rock:

now the terrain sentence is "The earth has been worn away to reveal [current terrain] here.";

otherwise if the current terrain is bare earth:

if a random chance of 1 in 2 succeeds:

now the terrain sentence is "The grass has been worn away to reveal [current terrain] here.";

otherwise:

now the terrain sentence is "Some unknown force has ripped away the sod here to expose bare earth.";

otherwise if the current terrain is slush:

now the terrain sentence is "A thick layer of [current terrain] conceals the ground from view.";

otherwise if the current terrain is snow:

now the terrain sentence is "A hard crust of [current terrain] conceals the ground from view.";

otherwise if the current terrain is ice:

let M be a random number between 1 and 3;

if M is 1:

now the terrain sentence is "[current terrain] gleams dully on every surface.";

otherwise if M is 2:

now the terrain sentence is "[current terrain] makes the footing treacherous.";

otherwise if M is 3:

now the terrain sentence is "A thick layer of [current terrain] covers the ground."
