Running Frotz on our story gives:

Fatal error: Unknown Z-code version Blorb file loaded, but unable to
build map. u_setup.blorb_file ./A Night Below the Opera.blb
u_setup.blorb_name A Night Below the Opera.blb

Frotz version 2.4.4.

Do I need to download some additional data or something?

Yes, the AUR refers to the Arch User Repository.


I switched to Android a few months ago for my daily use so yes I do
think we should include an Android interpreter if it exists.
