Welcome to Medieval World, Sir Davey, where knighthood is still in
flower and danger lurks around every castle corner. You'll need to use
the magic of Merlin the Magician to find Excalibur, and make your way
through the Transporter to the Dark Castle and your final encounter with
the Dragon of the Castle. And now, off on your daydream ....er,
Davey's first encounter is with a White Knight. They look fearsome, but
they are your best allies of all. Touch a White Knight and he will give
you information you'll need on your journey. But don't try to harm
them, or you'll feel their wrath!
Your first mission is to find Excalibur, the most powerful weapon in the
Medieval World. No warrior can expect to continue without this Prince
of weapons, subject of myths and legends passed from generation to
generation. Press on, Sir Davey!
Weapons in the Medieval World
There are helps, hints and tools in the Dark Forest that will help you
on your way. You can defeat most of the enemies in the Medieval World
with your Sword, your wits and your courage, but some of the enemies are
difficult to defeat without special weapons. Don't get lost in the
winding trails and blind alleys in the Medieval World. Remember where
you've been and don't get lost. Beware of the different kinds of Gnomes
- they'll be your downfall if you're not careful. Talk to all of the
White Knights for clues to help you on your quest, and press on!

Below is a brief introduction to some of the characters you'll meet in
the Medieval World. The battles you fight here will just be a warmup
for the big showdown against Lumper, the Dark Knight.

There are a few areas where you'll make short stopovers along the way.
Some will seem familiar- some will be brand new.
Into the fiery quicksand! If you get your hands on the coin, Captain
Charon will give you passage on the boat that leads to this flaming
wasteland. You'll need the Spear of Mars and the Golden Bow to make it
out of here alive! There's no way to be sure where the quicksand is, so
you'll have to be careful where you step!
The Titans in the Cloud City are fearless fighters who know how to use
their weapons with deadly accuracy. Davey will need to have some
powerful weapons, a good defense, and an effective mod of transportation
to make it through this section.
Back to the world of Knights and Wizards, but this time it won't be
quite so easy! Overrun with fireball-throwing Druids and guarded at the
end by Sir Lumpus, Winterland will tax even the bravest knight.
Greek Mythology World
The Delphic Oracle can't help you here! Davey (Or is that Daveus?) will
have to find his way through the columns and temples of ancient Greece
to the grove of trees where the evil one-eyed Cyclops lies in wait for
just such a hapless traveler. His clubs are fearsome and he's keeping
an eye out for you!
Here among the temples and courtyards of Mount Olympus there are gods
and goddesses all around to help you on your way. Some of the temples
have characters that will help you on your quest for the Magic Shield
and the Sword of Cyclops. Be sure to look everywhere!
Friends and Enemies in Ancient Greece
Some of the gods and goddesses will give you clues and hints to help you

The Trading Post
Davey can buy or swap for things he needs in the Trading Post. Snake
skins, Indian relics, Root Beer and other items can be traded for the
things you need. But remember - not everything you see in the Trading

Davey can hole up at the hotel and get a bite to eat, a shave and a
bath, and a bed for the night when his energy starts to get low. The
entrees all seem to have beans in them, and there's not much you could
call gourmet but it's pretty fair for frontier grub, and it'll fill ya
up when yer belly's growlin'.
