Synopsis

Plot

Your mission is to recover the Golden Baton, a priceless artefact that holds within it a kind of life force that maintains the equilibrium between good and evil. Stolen from the Palace of King Ferrenuil, the kingdom is already beginning to feel the effects of drought and pestilence.

Notes

The original TRS-80 version, and slightly later IBM PC port, was published by Molimerx.

An initial cut-down, 8K version for Vic 20 was published in 1982 by Leisuronics (Leisuresoft).

To obtain graphics on a Dragon requires the computer to be in Dragon 64 mode, otherwise the game is text only.

Incredible easy compared to almost all other adventures. Recommended for first timers into the txt based gaming world. Still fun, as they all :)

Short and fun, but a tad arbitrary at times. Howarth's terse style (one of the best imitators of Scott Adams, if not the best) ended up becoming an acquired taste for me.
