About the Story

"You must explore the dangerous river, find the Black Warrior's lair, free Professor Axom and make it back to the Main Hall alive. Piece of cake, right?"

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 adventure is a very good example of an early Eamon. The large and somewhat complex map is well laid out, with competent room descriptions.
