As you play the game, you discover that there are sixteen treasures to collect (and keep safely). But can you solve the ultimate riddle of the Caves and gain, perhaps, the greatest prize of all?
You set out on your quest and travel for many uneventful weeks before arriving at a lonely Waystation upon the dusty road. This marks the boundary of the wilderness. Here, you re-provision yourself using the last of your coins, staying one night to chat with the friendly landlord, and then press on across the moor.
It is possible that you were overheard while discussing your map, for two rough-looking characters leave shortly after you, tracking you to a lonely spot where they rob you of everything...
You should examine everything you find in the game, (you may need to be holding objects to be able to examine them carefully). You will first need to discover how to use these words!
