Hey fellow programmers.Im a new python programmer.Only been learning for about 2 weeks.Below is a code I wrote this weekend.It is a simple text adventure.tell me what you think of it.Feel free to copy and paste it into python and run it yourselves.I'm open to suggestions.

Well I guess it is not bad.:)
One small criticism though.
Don't restrict the user in his options. (See line 10)
The same for your if statements, where you test the capitals.
You can avoid all this with the lower() function.
Happy programming.

Thank you. How do you suggest I nrestrict the user in his options? And what do you think a good project would to be work on now. I'm comfortable with if and else statements and sort of with functions. Just want to increase my programming skills.

In the case of upper and lower case that is easy. If your program works best with lowercase input, let the user type what he wants. You, as a programmer, can take care of it behind the scenes converting all the uppercase input into lowercase. The user does not have to know that.
There is this wonderful thread by Vegaseat to continue your explorations: Click Here

Reapting code(answer).
Class or function's is a must to stucture code when it get longer.
This is maybe something you need to learn.

Some tips to get rid of all that if's.
Here use dictionary and convert all input to lowercase(lower())
Then you dont need this 'run' or answer=='Run':
Another option can be to load all that printing info from a file.

game_dict = {
    'walking':
'''This will be a long and treacherous journey.Prepare yourself with a weapon.
Would you like to take the sword or the scimitar?''',
    'teleporting':
'You teleport yourself into the city of Marshingo with ease.',
    'sword':
'You arm yourself with the sword and head out on your way.'
}

answer = input('How will you get to Marshingo, by walking or by teleporting?').lower()
if answer in game_dict:
    print(game_dict[answer])
else:
    print('{} not found in game_dict'.format(answer))
