THE CHANGLING
Written by M. J. Gearing
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Spectrum Version)

Notes
1. It is necessary to pass through one of the dense forest locations several times in order to set
the flag so you can go northwest to exit the forest.
2. Eating the food has no significance except to add points to your score.
3. You can fill the flagon with water (only at the east bank of the river) and drink but it
doesn't affect the outcome of the game.
4. Due to sloppy programming many objects can be found and taken more than once.
5. If you get the empty wine flagon then fill it with water you are unable to drop it again which
makes inventory management extremely difficult as you are able to carry only a limited number of
items.  It is recommended that you leave it as it isn't necessary to complete the game.
