This is an adventure divided into four chapters within two volumes, Operation Safras and Pettigrew's Diary, which are on two separate tapes. Each chapter is an adventure in its own right and is loaded separately. You may only progress to Chapter 2 when Chapter 1 has been completed and likewise with Chapter 3 and Chapter 4. All four chapters are linked by the mysterious Safras Sword and the ubiquitous Diary, and many skills and talents are needed to finish the complete adventure.
Chapter 1: The Searching
The star tells you which agent is the closest to you at any time. When an agent is rescued, his signal will disappear. This is a text adventure, with a vocabulary of over 150 words. Type the words in the normal format of ACTION OBJECT (ENTER). All words may be abbreviated to three letters. To travel around, either:
type T (ENTER) and follow the on-screen instructions, or
Type GO LONDON (etc) (ENTER) for direct travel.
When this chapter is successfully completed, you are given a code.
Chapter 2: The Returning
In this chapter, you must return your sword to its rightful resting place in the Safras Caves. This part consists of eight separate challenges, each fully illustrated. You must solve each adventure in turn, in order to reach the final climax. To input commands, use the same method as in Chapter 1.
Chapter 3: The Discovery
While rambling through the Oxfordshire countryside, you discover a farmhouse, ablaze, with smoke billowing out of the windows. You investigate and find a dying man inside. Before he dies, he gives you a strange diary, monogrammed with the initials R.J.P. You take the diary and read it. It speaks of wonderous happenings and challenges you to complete the mission, undertaken by its owner, a Mr. Pettigrew...
For speed, all words can be abbreviated to three letters. Movement is by the usual GO NORTH, SOUTH, EAST or WEST commands. When this chapter is successfully completed, you are given a codeword.
Chapter 4: The Conclusion
This chapter consists of eight separate challenges, designed to test you on a wide range of abilities.
