About the Story

As you were wandering around a town called "Nell-zon" near the Main Hall, a seemingly crazy old man approached you. Half of his utterings were not coherent, but he was saying something about "hidden treasure right in the alley". He was also going on about wealth to be had just for rewards and bounties for some characters hiding out in some old buildings.

You do remember something about a poster in the bank giving a reward for recovery of some counterfeit gold coins, so maybe there is something to the old man's tale after all...

This adventure is part of the Eamon universe. Like all Eamon adventures, it is an RPG-style game, mostly using a two-word parser. Because Eamon is a modular system, you may bring a character and equipment from other adventures into this one.

Editorial Reviews


This was the "Beginners Cave" of John Nelsonís aborted KnightQuest gaming system. It is very easy and very simple. You just wander around and take everything you can pick up. Combat is easy, too. It appears possible that Frankís conversion to Eamon may have stripped off the secret passages and made them normal passages, but it hardly affected the playability in any way.
