   Section 1. About the game       A1
  Ah, what blind optimism can lead to.  NEOPHYTE I is the first in a series
of games by Alien Software.  All three games were Shareware, but just like
Aethra Chronicles, the full version was never released.  The game is still
quite fun, and has many secrets to unlock.  However, it is quite "Oldskool".
Before you stand a snowball's chance in Haiti of beating an alligator, you
need to be level 3 or 4.  Healing items and weapons are quite expensive 
compared to Neophyte 3.  To aid in your quest for money, there are several
hidden treasure chests across the land.  There are just a few weapons to
pick from at the beginning, but they are VERY powerful.
   The game is considerably LESS reliable than Neophyte III, and it crashes
every few minutes.  The most common crash happens when you die on specific
screens, but it has a simple solution-don't die.  All in all, it is a noble
prequel to one of the few great PC RPGs.

      with higher levels.

   Section 5:Monster list   A5
  (Taken partially from manual, with additional information provided by
   Chaz5000 in parentheses)
   
  Blob: These little purple monsters aren't very dangerous, but can do 
        damage to you if you're not careful(Located right outside town). 
  Slimes: Though somewhat tougher than the blobs, slimes are rarely much
          of a problem(Located right outside town).
  Rat: In the early part of you quest, rats may prove to be a 
       nuisance(Located in caves and wells, but not in the overworld). 
  Spider: The spider is quick and packs a venomous bite. Beware!(Located
          in caves and wells, but not in the overworld
  Fish: These water-dwelling creatures are usually pretty easy to deal
        with(Located only in water, primarily water in wells). 
  Giant Snail: It's a good thing these ugly beasts aren't quick. If they
               hit you, they can do quite a bit of damage(More cavedwellers).
  Crocodile : Crocs are mean, fast and can bite your head off if you're
              not careful(Aquatic areas of the overworld, and caves).
  Orc: Orcs can be quite difficult to kill, especially if you're facing more
       than one at a time(Ain't that the truth!  Near dungeons and dungeons).
  Horde: Little is known about the awful creatures of the Horde. You'd better
         be well prepared before you face one of their kind(Yeah, like level
         5 or 6.  Dungeon dwellers and near dungeons)
