Synopsis[edit]

Mystery of the Snow Pearls is a solo scenario for one character, although it can be adapted to group play.[1] The player character must solve the riddles of an evil mage to regain the magic pearl which protects the character's village.[1]

The player is a Companion level elf, responsible for safeguard one of the four, magical pearls that protect the land of Tarylon. Milgo, an evil wizard with a sense of humour, challenges the elf to find and return the lost item. Without it, the entire region is threatened.

This adventure uses a "Magic Viewer" - a piece of colored film - to reveal the hidden results of the player's choices.[1] This includes encounters, puzzles, and traps.
