Playing Part 1 of these Chronicles is not essential before playing Trial of Drakness, but you will certainly have a greater chance of understanding how Isvar is to complete his tasks... This game begins exactly where the first part ended, so if you played Fairlight 1 be prepared for an even larger,even more complex game ahead of you!
If you have not played Fairlight 1 then note that objects and characters that you meet in this game will tend to have 'real world' features such as weight, momentum, inertia, and sometimes a degree of independent intelligence too. Although, for instance, you (as Isvar) can carry up to 5 things, what you can actually carry will depend to some extent upon the weigth of objects. Pushing a lightweight object will cause it to move more freely than pushing a large heavy one foe example.
This revolutionary technique (which remains unrivalled more than a year after its initial appearance on home micros!) allows you a fantastic degree of detail in the 3D rooms and locations, and there are even outdoor locations in this game - something that other games have steered clear of before. Feel free to move objects as you might in the real world, or to interact with them, stack them or use them as you might see fit. You'll be surprised at the flexibility you are allows,
This game may take many months to solve, so don't expect to sit down and complete it in the first evening!
