From the World Action and Adventure Official Guide back cover:
For the accomplishment of writing the World Action and Adventure series, five departments at San Diego State University awarded Gregory L. Kinney fifteen units of credit in five departments: English, Sociology, Zoology, Psychology, and Multicultural Education.
"Through the jungle is heard the sound
of drums that only tribesmen pound
they await the heads of men like these
explorers hiding behind the trees.
"The mountain climber edged his way
he struggled strongly through the day
losing hope and unaware
an avalanche crushes him in his despair.
"The treasure chest is flung wide open
for each pirate there is a token
but greed seizes each one of them
when they cannot split the only gem.
"Darting up so very high
the airplane seems to pass the sky
falling back and out of control
the plane recovers with a roll.
"He runs to warn his fellow soldiers
to load the catapults with boulders
the enemy approaches from the rear
a thousand of them that know not fear.
"An astronaut steps into space
a wonder of the human race
he looks upon the Earth that's blue
it is his dream that has come true."
Excerpt from the poem, World Action and Adventure, written to inspire aventurous thoughts for possible game episodes.
