    Unless you can find documentation somewhere (the included readme doesn't help at all), this game seems very difficult to get into. It's not nearly the same as the Atari/Commodore original and doesn't seem to feature negotiations. Instead you micromanage your dragonwaves and support NPCs to prepare for the fight phase, which is of course all in simple ASCII.
