Raised by a wandering tribe of nomadic herdsmen and brought up in the simple
style of their existence, you know very little about the world of the great
'walled-cities' and of the inhabitants who dwell within their walls. However
old Mustak, the 'teller of tales', had often held you enthralled with his
stories of the times of peace and wealth before the arrival of the now dreaded
Barbarians and of the 'lost', but not forgotten, Prince who would one day return
to lay claim to his rightful inheritance. It was said that this Prince would be
the one who would return his people to the days of 'Peace and Wealth' and drive
the Barbarians back to the inhospitable land from whence they came. This he
would achieve with the aid of the legendary "Golden Sword Of Bhakhor"... a
weapon talked of by many but seen by none.
So it is that you find yourself standing before the 'walled-city', with only
your wits and intelligence to guide you. You do not know who you are or what
you are doing here... only that you *must* enter the city, live amongst strange
people and survive amidst those whose customs you do not know and who are very
unlikely to be friendly towards you.
With luck, the reasons for you situation will become clear and that which you
must accomplish in your quest will be revealed .... but first you must survive
long enough to gain this knowledge.
All the time you are in the city you will be at risk, as this is a primitive
society whose instinctive reaction to any wrong move is to kill, within or
without the law! So ensure that you save your 'game position' frequently in
order to survive.
The market-place is full of vagabonds, thieves and pickpockets ... all of whom
are adept at their own particular 'trade', so if you should run out of coins
with which to make your required purchases then you will have to return to the
Once you have acquired all five precepts then make your way to the 'Great Hall
of Knowledge' where all will be revealed to you.
