Challenge, The (Challenge.txt)

Written by Jack Lockerby (River Software)
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (C64 Version)

The old chief of the tribe has died and the elders are in the meeting house trying to decide who
should be the next chief.  The old chief's eldest son would normally be acclaimed chief, but
Pacheo was a coward and a bully, so when one of his cronies shouted Pacheo for chief, several voices
were heard crying Challenge.  Not surprisingly, one of the voices was your own, for Pacheo had
warned you that when he became chief you would be banished from the tribe.  

The elders went into a huddle and after some deliberation they proclaimed that you, Yarulla would be
the Challenger.  You are both given one half of the Sacred Medallion and the one who returns wearing
the Sacred Medallion whole, and carrying the blue sapphire from the lad on the bar and reptile,
would be acclaimed the one and rightful chief.
