Description: You have volunteered to be shrunk to microscopic size and injected into a human body on a mission to destroy cancerous growths, tumors, and bacteria. White blood cells will aid you in battle. You are given a special 'zap gun' to use in killing the diseases. For your trouble, you will be paid 1000 gold pieces. Also, you get to keep the zap gun.
Comment: This adventure was Rob's first attempt at a "Fantastic Voyage"-type adventure. His main purpose was to write an Eamon adventure that would also help educate the player about human anatomy. Unfortunately actual anatomy is almost non-existent, as most of the 'rooms' of the map use terms like "lower-head", "mid-arm", and so on. The monster-like attitudes of the bad guys was rather unrealistic, also.
If you want to use Eamon as an anatomy teaching aid, take a close look at #185 "The Body Revisited". It has a MUCH better and more detailed anatomical map. I give this adventure a (2) for difficulty. Used with Matthew Clark's kind permition.
