About the Story

"He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought— So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought." — Lewis Carroll

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

EamonAG

This is a somewhat strange Eamon. While I haven't read the poem personally, it appears to be based on "Jabberwocky". It has a lot of odd creatures. The map itself is rather mundane, although the room connections are often pretty mixed up and one-way, and exits are seldom named. About half of the map is simple in-one-side-and-out-the other rooms, and the rest almost constitutes an intermittent maze.
