Description from the packaging.

Kidnapped by an alien spaceship, you find yourself in a room with only one exit. Through this opalescent doorway is The City of Xebec's Demise. Overhead is a panel displaying constantly-changing numbers. At the moment you pass through, the numbers freeze. Whatever levels of Stamina, Charm, Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, Skill and Wealth you begin your adventure with are determined at this point.

Mystery and danger await you in the maze of streets. Be wary; not everyone is friendly! East and drink in taverns, where clues are often found in the hearty songs you hear. Battle deadly enemies, uncover marvelous treasures, and learn dark secrets.

You must improve yourself physically, mentally, morally, and financially in The City in order to reach your ultimate goal in the Alternate Reality series: return to Earth or seek revenge on your abductors.
