Pyramid love

::MPNW :SPSW

This is a long paragraph to test how Pyramid Love interacts with line spacing. I'm writing a lot of filler text to make sure it wraps. Filler filler filler. Alright, let's see how some diagrams, like the initial setup in Treehouse, look inline. Each player starts with a tree :SML and in the center is a house ::LPL::S::MPR. Now we need some more filler text to fill in after this, so we can see the effect on the line size in both directions. Filler filler filler. Some more text. OK, this is probably enough to get it to wrap.

:SML Well, looks like it does screw up the spacing a little, and the diagrams look tiny. May be better to have bigger diagrams floated to the right or left, or in their own paragraph. For instance, in Treehouse, each player starts with a tree.

And in the center of the board is the House, in the following arrangement:

::LPL::S::MPR
