Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa provides players with a fascinating
array of options to explore, making every game a unique experience. Rapius will
face dozens of monsters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, various
environmental hazards, and deadly boss encounters. Along the way he’ll learn to
craft items, drink potions, eat magic mushrooms, smoke fungus, imbibe booze
(from cheap Gobbo ale to lip-smacking Moon River whiskey), and much more. Among
other things Rapius can become invisible, diseased, hungover, poisoned, and even
a werewolf (hopefully not all at once)!
Rapius must also master his lantern, his source of illumination in the
underworld. If the lantern is turned up Rapius will be able to see (and be
seen!) further into the void, allowing him to make long range attacks on his
foes. If the lantern is turned down, Rapius can attempt to creep past danger,
sidestepping beasties he’s not quite ready to tackle.
If the lantern is burning hot and bright, oil is more quickly consumed than
when the wick is low. While oil flasks are scattered throughout the adventure,
knowing when to flare and when to soften the light is a key strategy to
Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa.
