Citadelle: The Shield of Oran

In the first installment of Loriciels' Citadelle series, which I ported from source code ported to the Sanyo PHC-25 you will come up against a range of monsters.  There are Lich’s, Bugbears, Orcs, Assassins, Warriors, Shades and Gnolls.  In the version I ported they are randomly generated in terms of the hit points, armour class and strength at the beginning of each combat, so retreating might not be a good idea.  Retreating takes you back to the previous room you were in.  When you re-enter the room all the conditions for the monster will be reset.  This might be a good thing if the monster is really strong and you’re getting pasted.  Going and coming back in might make for a weaker monster.  However, it might be worse!  Choosing Defence rather than attack just reduces your chances of being hit while also decreasing your chances of hitting the monster.  Spells are powerful but fickle.  The monsters are deployed in a fixed location as indicated in the map below.  However, if they don’t “disappear” at the end of combat random monsters will be spawned at random in one of the rooms.  If you have the sword and the armour, the monsters are pretty easy to defeat.  You won’t be let through the portcullis if you get pasted by the Gnoll and you don’t have at least one of these two items. A map and instructions follow:
