  4. Use form four as an alternative to form one.

There are ten potential movement directions in the Dungeon World: down, east, north, northeast, northwest, south, southeast, southwest, up, west.

Note that there are many conditions which may prevent you from moving as you desire. For instance, there could be no room in this direction; or there could be a closed door in the way. More ominously, someone may stop you. The Game channel will inform you of the outcome of your command.

Note you don't have to type the word "move". You can if you want to, but <direction> by itself is shorter. So, instead of typing "move west" you can just type "west"; or even just "w" if you like.
