Caught up within a ruthless necromancer's schemes your only chance of survival is to escape the prison fortress.

Unique RulesEdit

  • The introduction hints that you may acquire magic abilities, but does not provide any details. It is not until quite a way into the game that the player is required to generate a magic attribute, and is given a list of possible spells. Possession of certain objects enables additional spells to be cast.
  • There are limitations placed on the number of objects that can be carried or worn.

Equipment ListEdit

As you are a prisoner you start with no weapons, food or equipment, but you do have a backpack.
