These flops are hitting places which are mainly civilian. Their strikes against Baghdad increase proportionally with their failures on the war front.

Description: You were searching for a new adventure in the hills of Mansui when you stumbled upon a small cave that you remembered from tales told at the Main Hall. It leads into Hollow Mountain, and is fabled to have great treasure, if you can get out with it.

Comment: This adventure would at first glance seem quite dull, as it has no quest and the exit is plainly marked at the beginning, but it is one of the funniest that I have ever played. The monsters quite often have rather silly names like Froggy, Horation of Pi, or Jeff Harris (Ed. note- I wonder what Jeff would think about this opinion!), and some actions have very amusing results.

People of both the Hack'n'Slash and Problem-Solving genres will be moderately pleased with this adventure, as there is a good deal of both. Its only drawback is the lack of a quest.

I would recommend it to everyone, especially people with a less than serious nature.

Used with Matthew Clark's kind permition.
