1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


DAAnE is a very short interactive fiction adventure that was made in 1987 by
Atlantis Software. A dark lord has enshrouded the village of Alnwicky in evil,
and the only thing that can save the people is an amethyst. At the start of the
game the player is kidnapped by goblins and locked in a dungeon cell, and the
aim is to escape from the dungeons and return the amethyst to the alchemist.
There are some interesting characters and rooms, but the game is quickly over.
