|I Am Here To Claim What Is Mine!
Forty-three years had passed since Lord Keven Van Valkenburg had been murdered and his family driven into exile. During that time a succession of evil overlords, sorcerers, and dragons had occupied Valkenburg Castle. These tyrants terrorized and plundered the surrounding countryside. The peasants had little choice but to tolerate these abuses, while silently praying for the return of the gentler rule of the Van Valkenburgs. Then, on a bright spring day in 575 A.H., Lord Hobart Van Valkenburg, Keven's grandson, returned and staked his claim.
Valkenburg Castle is a fantasy game of adventure and combat in the depths of an ancient dungeon. One, two, or more players may use heroic leaders, fighting men, clever burglars, staunch dwarves, and mysterious magic users to explore, and eventually to capture the castle from evil ores, trolls, ogres, sorcerers, banshees, and drogs. Players may use swords, bows, enchanted weapons, and (for those with a more modern interest) machine guns and hand grenades to fight their way into -- and out of -- Valkenburg Castle.
