The Plain of Srevi is an Eamon adventure written by Karl Ivers and released in September 1990.

Background

In correspondence with Huw Williams in 2020, Ivers said he started on computer programming in the 1980s while working for public schools and recalled having fun building the adventure. The word Srevi is Ivers' surname spelled backwards.

Premise

You have been left on the Plain of Srevi, alone and in search of shelter, and the only thing you can see above the endless grass is a single tree to the west. Suddenly a bird hits you and magically transforms into a scroll on which is a message directing you to look for riches below the ground.

Full introduction

You have been left on the Plain of Srevi. A hot breeze blows from the south and as far as you can see, there is only waving grasses. Tall six foot grass that is almost impossible to move through.

As you stand, you find you are on a slight rise. The sun is overhead and it is about noon. You're hungry and thirsty and you are kind of bummed out! As you gaze to the west, you spy a tree. One, solitary tree on a treeless plain. Soon you're going to need water, and a Big Mac wouldn't be bad.

You really should find shelter before dark.

Thunk!! Ouch! You've been hit in the head by something. You look around and see a goose lying nearby. As you stagger toward the goose in disappears and in its place is a scroll. You unroll the scroll and it says... "Beneath, below, riches abound, below the plain, under the ground."

Poof! The scroll vanishes. Let's hope you don't!
