As the veins of his city are depleted and the valley is deserted of its inhabitants, rumors of taverns come to Ruggnar’s ears. Abandoned places contain incredible treasures that are just waiting to be pickep up.
Ruggnar has a limited amount of candles to help him in these dark places. Help him to manage his supply. Seeing the path ahead of you, activating certain mechanisms or simply lighting up: it’s up to you to find the perfect use for each candle! And if you throw one, remember to pick it up. It might come in useful soon!
Hidden by the darkness, you may find yourself face to face with an axe, a fireball or other nasty things. Don’t worry, move carefully, use your candles and everything will be fine. After all, Ruggnar is very agile for a dwarf and he gets up quite easily after an accident. Observe your surroundings, listen to the noises around you, throw your candles. The traps are there. It’s up to you to avoid them!
