The Eamon Adventurer's Guild
March 1991

Financial Report

The EAG's finances were as follows for 1990: we began the year with a starting balance of $232.50. We took in $1,315.50 in memberships, updates, back issues, and gifts. We spent $1,140.73 on supplies, copier charges, and postage. There was a one-time payment of $172.50 to cover half the cost of a new printer (I am treating this payment as personal income from the EAG to me for tax purposes). We ended 1990 with a balance of $234.77 for a net income of $2.27 for the year.

The most important thing about the above figures is that it shows that the EAG is growing, with approximately a 40% increase in the cash flow over 1989. That's a nice growth for a single year.

We are still showing an income surplus that the printer took care of for 1990. If a lot of money starts piling up and no unusual expenses loom, I plan to start using up this extra money by occasionally extending everyone's membership by one issue. This will eliminate one round of renewals, which should lower the balance by around $170. I can't predict when such an extension might happen; but intend to do this any time the club balance exceeds $300.

Ratings

Late last year I built a spreadsheet for the EAG Adventure Ratings Poll. Besides revealing a couple of errors in the ratings, I came up with the following statistics:

Total number of ratings: 393
Average number of ratings/adventure: 1.9
Average of all adventure ratings: 5.3

While we could wish that more people would rate adventures so that the poll reflects better averages, it is interesting to see that the 1-10 scale is holding up very well. The exact middle of the 1-10 scale is 5.5, and our poll average is very close to that number. To recap the rating scale:

1-2 Poor
3-4 Fair
5-6 Average
7-8 Very Good
9-10 Excellent

It seems that the very best adventures may have caused us a problem of sorts. Most prospective young new authors that I talk with want to start out writing 9.5-rated adventures, and many quit before they even start because they are afraid that their effort will be considered "average" instead of "exceptional". Presently we seem to have encountered a lull in new adventures, and I wonder if this is the cause.

If you are thinking about writing your first Eamon, you really should give it a try! It is so much more fun to write them than it is to play them that most authors seldom if ever play Eamon except during testing. And you need only to look at people like Ruby and Segerlind who went from writing "average" stuff to 9-rated adventures once they got some experience under their belts. Very few people manage to get it all together on their very first attempt.

Directions

So, what kind of directions do you want to see Eamon go in? Would you like to see more, different Main Halls? I have a couple of new ones that people have done. One includes a couple of new simulations, and the other takes maximum advantage of (and requires) a 128K, 80-column machine. I recently talked to a guy who is hot to do a Hypercard-type Main Hall for the GS. It seems that there might be a place for GS-specific Eamons, as long as I can get the info that I need to convert them to ordinary Eamons as well. Drop me a line and let me know what you think.

Letters

Dear Tom,

One of my favorite games is a short game (only 20 rooms) called Search for the Key (#80) by Donald Brown. For the casual player this game probably doesn't do much for them. You cannot enter this game with a powerful character but as a beginner. I note that it is rated as a 2. My rating for it since it is such a challenge would be about 7. I have played it at least 200 times and have lost only about 5 times in the last 150 times. I would say that I know more about this little game than the author. Usually I lost because of broken weapons so that I had no way to eliminate the black panther. I usually finish up with $80,000 to $100,000 and four of the best weapons that money can buy. I don't know anyone who ever was able to get more than two weapons. At one time I was running it as the Eamon Challenge on our BBS offering anyone who could come out of the game with $40,000 a $25 prize. No one solved the mystery so I have not revealed it. I doubt if the author even realized the quirk in the game which allowed me to win this way. I wonder if you or any of the other adventurers can figure out how I do it. — Wm. Trent

Wow. How do you do it, Bill? <grin> — Tom

New Adventures

205 Utterly Outrageous by Pat Gise
206 Curse of the Hellsblade by John Nelson and Tom Zuchowski

In Utterly Outrageous, the environment of Eamon is undergoing grave damage, and the world is rapidly becoming uninhabitable. It is up to you to investigate the causes and discover the mystic procedure that will restore the Earth to good health. A version 7 Eamon, it makes very good use of nested and embedded artifacts.

Curse of the Hellsblade is an old, partially complete adventure that John had written for his long-abandoned Apple-based KnightQuest system. The monster and artifact data was completely different from that of Eamon, and it made heavy use of LOOK-type secret passages which are not supported in version 7.0. This made conversion to Eamon very difficult but I managed it. The map is 95% John's, and the monsters and artifacts are 80% his. The puzzles and quest were shaped by the existing database but are largely mine, since they mostly didn't exist in the incomplete original. The story: it seems that you have accidentally saddled yourself with a demonic sword that won't let go of your hand and kills anyone who comes near you! You hear of a cave that might hold the answer to your problem...

Dungeon Designs

Back to the Basics: Rooms and Doors
by Tom Zuchowski

There are only two basic types of information in the room data: exits and light. Light has two values: (1) if the room is naturally lit, and (0) if the room is dark.

A normal Eamon adventure has 6 directions of travel: North, South, East, West, Up, and Down. When editing room data, you must supply an exit number for each of these directions: A (0) means that there is no exit in that direction. A (-99) signifies an exit to the Main Hall. Custom programming can be accomplished by using negative numbers; however, you must supply the programming for such special connections.

The last means of exiting a room is through a Door artifact. The exit number in the room data should equal the artifact number of the door plus 500. For example, if the door's artifact number is 21, then the exit number is 521. This tells the programming to consult Artifact #21 for more information about the exit.

And what about the door itself? First, you must decide if it is a normal door or if it is a secret door. If normal, you simply use the Room number for the door's location and answer "0" to the HIDDEN question. If it is a secret door, add 200 to the room's number for the location, and answer "1" to the HIDDEN question. But if it is hidden, then you must remember to mention it somehow in the room description, so the player will have a name to EXAMINE to make it appear in the room.

Be careful with the KEY question in the door menu. It presently defaults to 99, which means that you will need artifact #99 to use as a key to open it. If you have fewer than 99 artifacts, the program will crash. The KEY number should be set to the artifact number of the key that opens the door. If the door is unlocked, set KEY to zero.

Be sure to set the door's weight to 999. The MAIN PGM recognizes 999 as an impossible weight and responds "DON'T BE ABSURD" if the player tries to GET the door. If you don't do this, some bozo with a super-character will pick up the door and carry it off, which does not open the passageway but does ruin the adventure.

Set the door's strength to whatever you want it to be. This number is reduced by the damage hits inflicted when the player ATTACKs the door; when it reaches zero, the door shatters. If it is a flimsy door, set this number to something small, like 10. If it is armored, set the number very high, like 999.

Let's do an example of a door. Let's say that the door is artifact #5 and is a secret north exit from Room 3. The room beyond the door is Room 7. The door is armored and locked, and its key is artifact #6, and is found in Room #2. This example underlines all typed input:

USER #5 :	(doesn't matter)
USER #6 :	(doesn't matter)
USER #7 :	(doesn't matter)
USER #8 :	(doesn't matter)

That's how it's done. Be sure to print out the manual. It has all this information and more in it, and you will find it a valuable reference.

The above example is not a complete printout of everything that you will see on the screen. There are quite a few on-screen menus during data input that list the allowable inputs, so that you don't have to memorize such things as the artifact type of a door. In fact, the menus almost cover such information better than the manual does.

The USER prompts seen with some types of artifact data input, such as the key above, are not used by the standard MAIN PGM programming. They are made available for the purpose of adding extra data for special programming. If you have not added any such extra programming, simply enter zero at each prompt (or hit Escape to retain the default value shown on the screen) and ignore them.

#34 Death's Gateway

by Bob Linden

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 4
Extra Commands: USE, DRINK
Deleted Commands: None
Special Features: None
Playing Time: 1-2 hours
Reviewer Rating: 7.0   Average Rating: 6.5

Description: The local blacksmith has disappeared. You search his shop for clues and find an obscure reference to some gates, and a map. After following the map, you come upon a destroyed castle. Searching the ruins, you discover the blacksmith's body, and a spiral staircase that leads down into the ground.

Just then you see a fellow adventurer who you know fleeing from the ruins. He has been stripped of all his possessions, and does not stop to talk.

You descend the stair...

Comment: This is in many ways a mundane version 4 adventure. You must type the full command and the full name, and passages are not well marked at all. On the other hand, there are a lot of interesting effects and puzzles that are often pretty funny. There are two or three no-warning "Gotcha!" death traps, so it would be a good idea for you to save the game fairly often.

The basic "quest" of this adventure is simply to escape, as you will find yourself trapped once you enter the dungeon. The theme of the adventure is to win your way past a number of gates, each of which requires its own solution (only one gate requires a key).

This is a puzzler's adventure. While there is quite a bit of combat, the opponents aren't that tough and can be handled easily enough. I give it a difficulty rating of (6).

#39 Museum of Unnatural History

by Rick Volberding

MAIN PGM Version: 4
Extra Commands: UNLOCK, OPEN, USE, ASSEMBLE
Deleted Commands: None
Special Features: None
Playing Time: 1 hour
Reviewer Rating: 5.0   Average Rating: 6.0

Description: You are approached by Professor Larkspur, a physicist who is in need of the services of a free adventurer. He tells you that the plans to his Interdimensional Translocator were stolen a few months back. Just this morning, the Eamon Museum of Natural History disappeared! The professor's assistant, Yrn Zandro, is also gone.

The Professor believes that Zandro had stolen the plans, built his own translocator, and warped the Museum into another dimension for evil purposes. He wants you to travel to this dimension and recover the Museum for a fee of 5,000 GP. He warns you that this other dimension may have other natural laws, which would have unpredictable effects on the contents of the Museum.

Comment: The map of this adventure is well-organized and well thought out. Basically, the objective is explore a museum until you find and destroy Zandro's translocator. Where the adventure falls down is that text descriptions of the insides of museums are not necessarily all that fascinating to read. However, the monsters were generally interesting enough.

This is basically a hack'n'slash offering with a couple of puzzles thrown in. One of them is extremely obscure, so I will give a hint here: you will need a bomb, and you ignite the bomb by saying a certain word that has to do with fire. Knowing this much, the clues that you discover should carry you through.

If not for this one puzzle it would have a difficulty rating of (4), but I give the adventure an overall difficulty rating of (7).

#41 Caverns of Lanst

by Rick Volberding

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 5
Extra Commands: GIVE
Deleted Commands: None
Special Features: 10-direction
Playing Time: 1 hour
Reviewer Rating: 6.0

Description: The noted archaeologist, Dr. Andrew Whitehead, approaches you in the Main Hall. He says, "You have been well recommended as an experienced Adventurer and I would like to hire you as a guide. I plan to explore the caverns of Lanst in search of artifacts of the fabled Lanstians. My research indicates that the caverns were inhabited many centuries ago by a civilization of great capabilities!

"I've prepared a standard contract." He passes over a legal-looking paper:

1. I will guide Dr. Whitehead through the caverns of Lanst.
2. I will give all artifacts of indicated archaeological value to Dr. Whitehead.
3. All non-archaeological artifacts are mine to keep or sell.
4. Dr. Whitehead's suggestions will be considered in all decisions.
5. I will receive 5000 gold pieces when the party returns to the Main Hall.

You sign, and together you set out. After many days of following old maps and weary searching, you find the caverns of Lanst!

Comment: This is a very large adventure for its time, with 97 rooms and an adequate number of artifacts. The ten-direction map is quite complex, but holds no nasty surprises. I came across a few traps that triggered a "narrow escape" special effect rather than actual death, which was a nice touch. There are several possible endings, depending on how well you fulfill your contract obligations.

The scenario takes place in an ancient, abandoned location which doesn't have much to offer in the way of opponents for combat. Rick compensates for this by sprinkling looters throughout the complex. They felt somewhat contrived and in my opinion added very little to the adventure, but there would have been no combat at all without them.

While the adventure was well written, it lacked a plot or any puzzles to solve. The "quest" consisted of wandering about, picking up artifacts and fighting off looters. If there had been more content or variety, it could easily have garnered a higher rating. With no puzzles nor difficult encounters but with a challenging map, it gets a (5) for difficulty.

#56 The Lost Adventure

by Jeff Allen

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 4
Extra Commands: EAT, READ, SMOKE, HELP, QUIT
Deleted Commands: None, no Save in DOS 3.3 version
Special Features: interactive intro program
Playing Time: 1-1.5 hours
Reviewer Rating: 6.0

Description: You find yourself outside a very bizarre temple. For reasons that you don't really understand, you go inside and take part in a weird ritual. Drugs that you ingest during that ritual have an very odd effect on you... when you come to yourself, you find that you are one inch tall and in a friend's yard!

And so you embark on a quest to discover how to make yourself normal again.

Comment: This adventure does a pretty good job of portraying the experience of being so very small. You start out in a "forest" of lawn grass, and fight your way past an assortment of insects. There is an interesting side-trip into an anthill. Though most of your opponents are small like you, you will have to find a way past a cat which thinks that you are dinner.

The introduction is very unusual. It actually consists of a mini-adventure with its own commands and events and its own small map. It somewhat gives the player a feeling of having gotten himself into this mess (although in actual truth he has no choice).

All in all, I enjoyed the play. It mapped well and was very consistent. It had two or three nicely done puzzles. It would have rated better but for two things: first, drug use is an integral part of the adventure both going in and during play, and the solution consists of trying drugs until you find one that makes you big again. Secondly, there is a large number of death traps. While there certainly are warning clues for all these traps, there are so many that stumbling into one or two is virtually unavoidable. The cat, for instance, is instant death if you don't do the right thing on the very first move.

The combination of puzzle difficulty and death traps gives this adventure a (7) rating for difficulty. Puzzle fanciers will probably enjoy it more than Hack'n'Slashers, but there is plenty of combat to go around.

===#58 The Land of Death by Tim Berge

MAIN PGM Version: 4
Extra Commands: GLASNAR, ALTAR
Deleted Commands: None
Special Features: None
Playing Time: 1-2 hours
Reviewer Rating: 6.0

Description: In the distance you see a huge obelisk which the Night Marshall says is "the Pillar of Time". "Many people," he says, "have come this route never to return. Good Luck." Slowly, he turns and leaves.

Turning towards the east, walking, you soon find yourself before a huge fifty-meter obelisk. As you draw close to it you see an inscription.

HAIL ALL THOSE WHO COME THIS WAY. WOE BE THOSE WHO SPEAK THE ANCIENT WORDS AND DESECRATE THIS MOST HONORED SHRINE. LO THE PROPHET OF TIME, JOHN COOPER, HAS SPOKEN!!!

Casually you turn to leave even as you hear a voice say "Cooper's Revenge is upon you... foolish mortal!!!"

Comment: There is some more to the introduction, but it has very little to do with the play. Basically, you find yourself in a rather odd city with overhead railroads, magical mists, and lots of cryptically inscribed obelisks. The basic thrust of this adventure is to explore the city and find a way back to the Main Hall.

The city is loaded with fascinating objects and clues and seems to promise a lot a interesting puzzles and special effects. Every few rooms you run across yet another inscribed obelisk with passages like this one: "THAT WHICH IS SEALED IN CRYSTAL CONTAINS THE POWER TO RELEASE THE FROZEN." Unfortunately, nearly all of it is fluff — "color" and "atmosphere" pieces that actually have nothing to do with solving the adventure. At least, if more puzzles existed, I couldn't find them and didn't need them for anything. There is no indication of success or failure at the end of the game, so I conclude that the only true objective is escape.

Even so, the atmosphere is well done and interesting to read. It fails on two counts: first, it has dozens and dozens of stupid spelling errors. The extra command ALTAR, for example, is really "alter". The second, and in my opinion much more damaging failing is that it has about a half-dozen death traps.

I give it a difficulty rating of (6). While there is very little that is actually challenging, the map is pretty complex and the death traps do offer minimal warning once you have fallen into one and know what they are. I feel that it is worth playing for the interesting descriptions and map, but there is little combat and only one puzzle.

#155 Tomb of the Vampire

Description: You have been asked to help a Transylvanian city defeat a vampire located in an abandoned cave in a mountain behind a cemetery.

Comment: First off, I would like to apologize to Dr. Trent for the "bad" review of this game in the Dec'90 issue. When you trade disks with as many people as I do, you don't have much time to make sure that everything is as it should be. That is how I got a bad copy of this game. After performing the bug fix in the same issue, I discovered that this was the cause of a lot of my gripes. I would like to withdraw my comments and rating in the Dec '90 issue and offer this instead.

The map was well thought out. I had a copy that was sent to me by Dr. Trent and compared it to the one I came up with. Pretty much the same, with the exceptions of hidden (LOOK) passages and those which didn't show up on my first copy. The bad descriptions were replaced by full sentences.

In short, this was a lot better once the bug was fixed. I rate it an overall 6 for the thought-out map and the relatively difficult yet simple puzzles. The clues are there, you just have to look at them!
