It all started in the city of Llylgamyn. See, there were these two people who weren’t fond of each other, Trebor (the Overlord – kinda like a president, but elected by a group of sages) and Werdna (evil wizard). Werdna stole Trebor’s magical amulet-thing and made a big underground maze, hiding said amulet at the bottom. Trebor tried to get it, but could only secure four floors. Having done that much, however, he put some traps of his own in those top four floors and offered up the underground maze as a proving ground. Find the hidden item, and Trebor’ll tell you about his shiny amulet and offer you a job as his personal guard. Of course, it should come as no surprise to avid gamers who was still guarding the amulet at the bottom…
