Description: "The king's daughter has come down with a rare and possibly deadly fever. There is only one known cure, the leaves of a certain tree in the fabled Paradise, whose medicinal properties are legend. You will be very well rewarded if you succeed!"
Comment: Actually, you don't get any reward except your loot, but that's OK, because the promised reward was an estate and a half-million in gold. But you'll know if you succeeded.
This is a rather strange Eamon. It's a mixture of industrial-type warning signs and corridor markings mixed with Old Testament Biblical stuff like angels and such. Yep, we're talking about the real, original Paradise here. You even visit the throne room of the Almighty, although he has seemingly stepped out for a moment. The flavor is such that you almost expect to meet Saints wearing hardhats in the hallways.
I had some real mixed feelings about it. It's OK, but weird. Bob Davis didn't like it much at all. Ardent Bible students may enjoy it more.
This Eamon had a difficulty rating of (9), but I don't understand why Bob set it so high. You'll have to stay on your toes to stay alive, and you'll need your magic weapons, but otherwise it isn't so bad, so I'm downrating the difficulty to a (6).
Used with Matthew Clark's kind permition.
