From the back of the book:
A New Kind of Game
Inside are two books for two players. One of you becomes Garth, a monk, Master of the North Wind. The other is his rival, Uthac, a powerful warrior. The two of you have been sent on a quest to the perilous place known as World's End to try and gain possession of the magical Amber Sword.
World's End, a foreboding, frozen, mysterious island, is rumored to be filled with countless treasure and fearsome monsters! (Your opponent takes the part of all monsters and enemies he faces! An easy, diceless combat system simulates battle.) Many are the might wizards and powerful warriors who have tried but failed to unlock the island's shadowy secrets. Will you be luckier than most?
This is an exciting game of adventure and magic as you and your rival race to be first to win the magical and powerful Amber Sword. Everything you need to play is provided: two books, magic spells, Combat Table, Character Sheets. No dice required. All you provide is one friend and two pencils!
PLAY ANYTIME! ANYWHERE!
PLAY MANY TIMES!
THE GAME IS ALWAYS DIFFERENT!
