From the Back Cover:
You have traveled nine miles today, and still have 116 to go before you reach the other side of the ship. You are dead tired, your strength half gone, and just as you decide to rest, out from a rock steps the most deadly foe you've faced so far: a giant killer toadstool!!! You really don't need this, especially after the Nazgul and Cylon you just fought, but you have no choice in the matter: the toadstool is attacking!
PHASE VII is the unique game of SCIENCE FICTION and FANTASY. It is the most unusual game you will ever play. The setting is an alien space station controlled by a runaway computer. You have one goal in life: TO SURVIVE!
From the Game's Introduction:
This is the ultimate mixture of fantasy and science fiction, for in this game both magic and science work.... You are aboard a huge space station, the ORION. This is no small station, for it is 80 miles wide and 125 miles long.... A vial of a new bacteria was accidentally opened aboard the ship. A plague ran throughout, killing most of the population. As the Captain died, he fell and hit a dimensional warp lever which threw the ship not only into a time warp, but a magic warp as well. It turned the inhabitants of the station into fictitious characters throughout the centuries, and captured the ship in nether-space... The character's objective is to travel throughout the station without getting killed, at the same time amassing as many treasures as possible...
