Description: "The Senator has been in politics for along time, and has thereby amassed a small fortune. His chambers are quite well guarded, though he does not really believe anyone would ever invade his stronghold.
"Rumor has it that the senator has kidnapped a number of his political rivals (of which there were once many; now there are few). It is now thought that the person most likely to still be in the senator's foul clutches is the good Sir Charles of Aknor, former counselor to the king.
"You stand before the senator's house, a lonely edifice far from other buildings or people. It is almost midnight, and the house is still, though a few lights burn. It is time to begin."
Comment: This is a short and simple foray. The map is that of a large house. There is very little in the way of special stuff to see or do. There are about 15 guards named GUARD #.
Still, I found it to be a solidly-crafted member of the "hack'n'slash" genre and a pleasant play. I give it a (3) for difficulty.
Note the FLASH bug-fix in this issue. Any time you see garbage MouseText while playing Eamon, this is usually the cause.
Used with Matthew Clark's kind permition.
