HERE... let me address this more
so... this looks like what I might see in your Story Stylesheet. Not in a passage.
Just to make sure you are familiar with the basics... delete all that text (if you feel more secure "cut" it to your clipboard). Then, just type in one word. Any word. "test"
Click play. Does it show up? If so, congratulations! You have a working install.
Next... back in the code, type this [[Room 1]]
See what happens.
Did a room auto-create? Cool because if so, you now have something playable. You have one room and one link.
If this works for you, then please come back here and show me where you are having trouble. I will help from that point.
