The Plot

Your right of passage to adulthood has arrived!

You are NYM. Your last day of childhood has arrived and as tradition dictates, you must undergo a right of passage. You must cross the Rubicon maze. A fiendish labyrinth that will test your abilities. Find the five Scrolls of Knowledge. Find the three Crowns of Wealth. Find the Ring of Argus. Find the Amulet of Light so that you can pass the gate keeper and find you true love.

Locate and collect 5 Scrolls, 3 Crowns, Ring of Argus and the Amulet of Light. You will also come across Doors (Diamond Shaped) there are keycards that you must be holding for them to disappear. 

Once you have everything go to the Gate Keeper room. He will have gone if you have them all. If he remains, it means you have not collected everything.

You will also find Shields. You can carry only one at a time. Once activated it will last a few seconds.... making you immune to all energy sapping creatures. Beware the shield will not protect you against the instant kill enemies. Use it wisely.
