Wizard's Orb, The (Wizards_Orb.txt)

Written by Gordon Yaccomine
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Spectrum Version)

While you are having a cat-nap your dreams suddenly turn into a nightmare of beating wings and
missing orbs and your master the wizard being very nasty.  When you awaken you can just see a small
speck disappearing into the distance in the east.  You realise that the nightmare has come true and
that the wizard's orb is missing.  You must go and return the orb.
