Difficulty Level: Standard

In ENCHANTER, the first of a spellbinding series in the tradition of ZORK, you are a novice magician whom Fate has chosen to do single-handed combat with a dark and fierce power. But worldly weapons will avail you naught, for your foe is the Evil Warlock who holds sway over the land. To defeat him, you will have to match your skills as a necromancer against his, casting spells you have learned from your masters in the Circle of Enchanters and other incantations you will acquire as you proceed on your quest. If you succeed, you will be elevated to a seat in the illustrious Circle; if you fail, your land will be doomed to an eternity of darkness.

Enchanter was Infocom's 9th game (and the 4th fantasy game after the three ZORKs. In fact, it became the first of a new trilogy taking place in the ZORK universe). It was written by the ZORK trilogy authors, Marc Blank and Dave Lebling.

You are the enchanter who is destined to liberate his land from the domination of the evil Warlock. You already know some spells, but you'll have to learn a lot more if you are to succeed...
