It is always better to adventure in comfortable shoes. Pants, as always, are optional.

Most astute Master Hrolfgar! I believe that makes it question to you sir.

I believe that would be Tukrush, the goblin deity of War and Mayhem. The Shrine and boulder would be found in area A-5 of the Pagoda Gatehouse.

The former captain of the Fortress might take great offence if you decide to plunder his belongings. What was his name and why might you regret thieving from him?

Would that be Milec and he will manifest as a wraith and attack (50% chance).

Yib-Gub is a goblin carpenter. He cowers and soils himself if threatened.

Or maybe it just the dwarven whisky he drinks. I recommend hiring a different carpenter, he doesn't seem to very skilled or reliable.

Very nice (heh, assuming I'm correct in my thinking)! I'll wait and see if anyone else wants to take a shot at this.

I can't remember the room number and my boxed set is at home! But I know what you can find there . I'll have to look it up when I get back to the homestead.

I believe this is a view of the lost cave with the well leading to the Black Reservoir in the foreground and the caveroom in the background that contains the gateway to the Red Planet.

Excellent artwork by Peter.

Ok I finally found this one. It took a while but...I believe it can be found in Area CC-4 (the stairs to the ruined furnaces) of the Castle Cellars.

Whew! That one almost got me .
