Description Edit | History

In-game Instructions

Long, long ago, men knew many secrets which we people have forgotten. Nature was not so kind as today, and great creatures lived in the depths of the earth.

It is the year 869, and you are an adventurer in Denmark. You are drawn by tales of a great treasure of over 5000 gold pieces, said to be in a castle inhabited by monsters of every sort.

You come to the village near the castle. You are surprised by how easy it is to find a place to stay. Then you realize that the people expect to keep your belongings when you are lost in the dungeon.

The dungeon is on three levels. The first level contains the entrance, many corridors, and many rooms. The second level is almost the same as the first except that there are more monsters and more scattered treasures.

The third level consists of one large room with several branching passages and their adjoining rooms. The large room contains the treasure of 5000 gold pieces.

Your objective is to reach the third level and return to the surface with the 5000 gold pieces.

(Excerpts from the in-game instructions continue in the More Information section below.)

In-game Instructions (continued)

There are 10 kinds of monsters in the dungeon. These include: orcs, trolls, slithers, green slime, giant ants, shadows, giants, purple worms, hydras, dragons.

The weakest are listed first, the dragon is strongest. The shadow cannot be fought with normal weapons. If you are affected by the shadow, you must drop your weapons and gold and run for the surface.

Dragons can be tamed to fight for you, but it is very risky to try.

You now outfit yourself with the following:

One dagger
One two-edged sword
A bow with 5 arrows
One 10 foot lance
5 points worth of magic dust

You can use the lance only once
You can use the arrows only once (each)
The sword and dagger can be used any time

On some occasion you might find a magic weapon such as a magic sword or dagger. These are used just like normal weapons except that they have special abilities

[Character statistics are Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, Constitution, Dexterity and Charisma.]

Strength and Dexterity determine your chances in combat

Constitution shows how many injuries you can survive

Intelligence and Wisdom govern magic and experience

Charisma is your ability to scare off wounded beasts and subdue dragons
