Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Spectrum GAC Version)

Hidden in the Tibetan mountains is the country of Senavie, and it was to 
here one day, from the midst of a violent storm, that a sick stranger 
arrived.  The impish inhabitants of Senavie nursed the stranger back to 
health, and in return he gave them the Crystal of Chantie, a powerful gem 
with eternal life force.  But the gem has been stolen by the evil Count 
Vulgar and his servant Puck.  Senavie is now a desolate, icy waste and it 
is your quest to find the gem and return it before Vulgar uses it to 
conquer the world.
