You are a simple shepherd on the planet of Tarmalon. In your time, you have never fentured further than the town of Holy Point, twn days march to the north. One day, while tending your flock, you see a dead man by the side of the road. Though you have never considered yourself a thief, something compels you to reach down and take the leather scroll clutched in his stiffening fingers. Unclasping his arm-band is tricker, but you manage to unclasp it and fasten it to your own wrist. Scooping up two coins of carved jade and a disk of obsidian, you resume your travels.

* OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: The museum thought Tarmalon magic was just a silly supersition. Unfortunately, the compendium [[EvilIsNotAToy actually works]] and was stolen from the museum without the museum knowing how to control it.

* WizardNeedsFoodBadly: Running out of food is an instant death. There's not much of an excuse for it, though. You can carry up to 1000 days at a time, and food is ridiculously cheap

Congratulations, you've found an an ancient museum, put together for the amusement of spacefaring travelers. Unfortunately, that scroll you're carrying is the Wizard's Compendium, a book of world-destroying spells. That dead guy was the museum's best agent, killed before her could report the danger. Now, it's on you to level up and save the world.

!! This game provides example of:



* AWinnerIsYou: Played straight or averted in a ''very'' cool fashion, YMMV. The Museum creates a new exhibit in your honor. Too bad no one on Tarmalon can access said museum, but galactic travelers can.

* BettingMiniGame: Flip-Flop and Blackjack are the best way for a beginning player to earn gold. Be careful, as you can win only about 800 gold per session. any more than that, and the guards ZergRush you. Byt the time you're strong enough to kill guards, you won't need the funds. Intelligence (your ability to use magic) involves paying an amathyst (mid-level) coin and 50 gold a shot to play "Stones of Wisdom" (Liar's Dice).
