Sheesh.  It's been years since I played this thing.

	I remember it...vaguely...but there were a few things I do
remember.

	It took me awhile, but I was able to make it to the Dwarven
citadel, at which most of my crew was slaugtered.  I did manage to finally
win the prize (whatever it was...I don't remember).

	During the game, I was able to take control of all different kinds
of ships, including the Elven Man 'O War (my personal favorite...get it if
you can) and the Deathspider, grappling Ram and all.

	If you've been playing the game for awhile, and you start to get
bored, here are a few things you might want to try:

	-->	See if you can leave the sphere.  I've tried this, and
have made it into the flow, but I haven't had any adventures in the flow.
Usually, my crew die from lack of oxygen before I can make it back to
Realmspace.

	-->	Spelljam manually.  This is cool, and a nifty way to have
a random encounter.  If you're lucky (damn lucky, cause I never could) you
might be able to find the citadel on your own.  Good luck, tho.

	-->	Make as many shipping runs as you can.  Earn a lot of
money, then start a savings account with a bank on Toril.  Trust me, you
will need it.  Going up against some ships will really damage your ship.

	One last thing to remember: If you take over a Deathspider or
Mindspider, you will be fired upon as soon as Elven ships see you.  They
don't know you're not Neogi, and therefore the scourge of the Spaceways.

P.S.	Is anyone running POR on Windows 95?  I tried to install it the
other day (for old times sake) and had a few problems.  It might have been
incompatiblity with my new sound card, but I'm curious if anyone else had
this problem.

"The difference is in viewpoint:

	Science is a way of talking about the universe in words that bind
	it to a common reality

	Magic is a method of talking to the universe in words that it
	cannot ignore

The two are rarely compatible."
							Neil Gaiman, 1991
