About Dungeon

You are near a large dungeon, which is reputed to contain vast quantities of treasure.  Naturally, you wish to acquire some of it. In order to do so, you must of course remove it from the dungeon.  To receive full credit for it, you must deposit it safely in the trophy case in the living room of the house.

In addition to valuables, the dungeon contains various objects which may or may not be useful in your attempt to get rich.  You may need sources of light, since dungeons are often dark, and weapons, since dungeons often have unfriendly things wandering about.  Reading material is scattered around the dungeon as well; some of it is rumored to be useful.

Recent adventurers report a new passage has been installed which leads to the North Pole and the lair of a mischievous Elf who will trade for secrets he holds that may aid your quest.
