|I expect to see this screen more often|
Well, the only cure for such a lack of playing is to dive right back in. To the top of the tower! The top is easily reachable now that I have access to the elevator from the second floor. There are two floors available, 198 and 199, but they're both empty. What's their purpose? I haven't find one yet. At the top I met with the beast mentioned by the townsfolk.
|Big ball of smoke isn't so scary|
|Yay! What's a Cloud Stone?|
|Is Cloud City in this direction?|
|And so our hero resorts to grave robbing|
To my surprise, I found a couple new sights (or maybe just ones I'd forgotten). The first was a lake that had three pillars rising from the water. The second was a graveyard. While visiting each gravestone I was surprised when I stumbled upon a hidden staircase.

|So am I!|
|For that price it better be a portable house|
|Sounds like I have to jump down the crack at some point|
|Who or what is Jeem?|
|Secret passages look like normal walls|
|Check twice, find entrance|
|Can I come back for it? No? Well alright... wow, this is heavy|
Beyond that initial discovery, I didn't find anything new outside the city. I returned with my new lamp and some oil. Inside the cave, with the help of the lamp, I could now see three steps in front of me instead of one. Progress here was hard fought.
|This is a normal amount of damage I sustained per enemy|
|Adding injury to insult|
|Ruins? I'm going to imagine it says runes|
|Just look at that extra AC|
|Stick! A divine stick! Joke! Get it?|
|Gold was the driving force to eradicate the zombies|
Inside was another boss, a dragon... with three heads.
|The game does well with scaling|
|Am I doing this right? No health bar...|
|But I was doing so well!|
|Scaling of the status bars seems off|
