    Anyone played this game knows there are more than one ways to arrive at the ending. The one I present here is only one of the many possibilities. Althrough I spent a lot of time to make the story line as linear and logic as possible, readers might still find it rather dis-orienated. Remember, examine each and every item you pick up. At some point, game progress relie on this. As in my previous creations, I had excluded un-necessary informations. So if you come across one during game play, feel free to explore on your own. Also, each character in your party carries his/her own inventory. Make sure you examine them. Be prepare to spend hours if you want to play this one from square one.
