Eamon by Donald Brown
You are a citizen of this weird world. You are a free person out to seek your fortune in this world of shifting laws and time. You will usually find yourself fighting terrible monsters such as orcs, trolls, and dragons to get their treasures. However, at times you may find yourslf fighting such varied opponents as Billy the Kid or Darth Vader! Anything can happen, anything at all.
Eamon is a fantasy role playing adventure. The computer with your help will generate your character for you and you will pretend to be that character. You will command your character into fierce battle, where hopefully you will emerge victorious and wealthy. If you survive. □

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Eamon
Far away, at the very center of the Milky Way, is the planet of Eamon. It doesn't orbit any sun — all the stars orbit Eamon, all four billion of them. The shifting pulls of these great bodies bring strange forces to bear upon this planet; twisting light, tides, even the laws of science itself! Strange things happen there, and the citizens of Eamon must always be adaptable, for things are rarely whal they seem, and even more rarely what they were yesterday!
Eamon Adventure List
* With SAVE Feature
Note: Only the title of each Eamon Adventure is shown. Each title constitutes a group of programs that are one disk.
Dungeons and Dragons in the Public Domain
There are now 45 adventures! Each is on a separate disk volume. The Eamon Master (Version 4) and the first adventure, Beginners Cave, are on the same disk — E01. To run any of the adventures you must run the Eamon Master first!
There is also an Eamon Designer volume (Version 5) — ED5, that will permit you to create your own adventure. Also on the Designer disk are 2 "manuals" that explain all the secrets of Eamon and how to design your own adventure which you may read on your monitor or print hard copy on your printer. Highly recommended for Eamon adventurers and writers are three Eamon Utility Disks — EU1, 2 and 3.
New Eamon numbering
The growing library of Eamon Adventures required changing a few adventure numbers (which is easily done). When you complete a new adventure and are satisfied it is perfect then send it to 3A for exchange. We will assign the next available number. Meanwhile use any two digit number.

National Eamon User's Club
The official National Eamon User's Club is now forming to bring together all Eamon adventures. The purpose is to assemble knowledge of adventures, notify members of new adventures, utilities, tournaments, program bugs, new versions, improvements, features you can add yourself, ways of saving your characters, helpful hints, designing adventure tutorials, and have a great time.
A newsletter sent out to all members, meetings schedules for adventurers in the same region, a possible membership list to help members find other members in their region and other fantastic things not even dreamed of yet. No dues have yet been levied and will be avoided, until printing and postage costs become too much.
Send your name, address, phone, and a list of the adventures you have to:
