THE LAST CITY
by Roger M. Wilcox
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (PC BASIC Version)


Scenario
The future has come and gone.  Human technology had reached goals that surmounted even the most
impractical dream of the past.  We had strived and succeeded, and at last had begun to tap into the
awesome power of ...... magic!  It was that caused our civilisation to crumble.  Your magical senses
have drawn you to the vicinity of humanity's last city because of a warning.  If not rescued
very soon, the last of human technology will be erased from the planet.
