After a bit of wandering round, I realised I probably hadn’t completed the dwarf mines bit of the game, so I went back in. Found a Sprite, who conned me out of 100 Gold. However, I got it back after I defeated a boss and it joined my “party”. It’s crap though, and it died several times before I got to the Haunted Woods. Once in the woods, I found the girl from before (who had left me) and she joined my party again.
We all pressed on into the woods further, and found a castle with a witch in it. Who made some guy disappear, and then set a tiger on me.
And the tiger killed me. Bah.
