Pythzilla, The Reader
A dark and creepy night is like a dark and stormy night, only creepier and without the storms.
Blame Snafuu for this.
Violent content. I mean it.
If you're looking for information about your character, go away. If you're looking for a game where it's easy to stay alive, go away. If you're looking for happy bunnies frolicking in fields, go away.
If you're looking for dark, bloody horror in a cave with torches, stick around.

Play it again and read the narration more carefully this time. If you choose the questionable ladder right off the bat, the link is worded in such a way as to sound very dubious, and your character is not yet cautious enough to survive. Once you've seen the decapitated bum, you're much less inclined to rush into things headlong, and the link text reflects that.
When does your character slip on an unseen object? In the streetlight choice? Yes; that was meant pretty much solely as a way to be cruel to the reader. I make no excuses for it. It is what it is: cruel, arbitrary death.

As to putting faith in the community, I believe I've been taught my lesson in that regard.
