Unknown to Ramus, written in the scriptures of Barenola, it is said that the only defence against evil is in the stars.
Jadaroz, the wise man of the tribe, has studied these writings for decades. Only he knows the secret and only he knows how to destroy Ramus.
But Judaroz is becoming old and frail and so decides to let you go. Your mission is to find the twelve signs of the Zodiac and return with them to the encampment.

On exploring around for a while, you realise that the way you came in does not exist anymore! You must not only find another way out, but also the password which will take you to the next address and then onto... the journey of a lifetime!
