Welcome to ZORK!
You are about to experience a classic interactive fantasy,
set in a magical universe. The ZORK trilogy takes place in
the ruins of an ancient empire lying far underground. You,
a dauntless treasure-hunter, are venturing into this dangerous
land in search of wealth and adventure. Because each part
of the ZORK saga is a completely independent story, you can
explore them in any order.
In Zork II, you
will explore a long hidden region of the Empire, a region
dominated by the Wizard of Frobozz. The Wizard was once a
respected Enchanter, but when his powers began to fade he
was exiled by Lord Dimwit Flathead the Excessive. Now bordering
on senility, the Wizard is still a force to be reckoned with.
Your goal, as you venture into the Wizard's realm, is to avoid
his capricious tricks and learn to control his magic.
