Our section of the Faerie Queene was the forest near Castle Busirane. The starting point is in the southeast corner of a large area section. Trees are scattered throughout the forest of various types. The outer area of the map is densely covered in trees and is difficult to traverse. To enhance the borders, there are difficult enemies on the outer parts of the map that are off the path to be traveled.
A river runs through the center of the forest and provides the path for the character to travel towards Sir Scudamore. The main goal is to find Scudamore, and early on there is a woodsman. When the player talks to him, there is a conversation where he instructs the player to follow the river to the fountain. There are various bushes, reeds, and rocks along the river’s path for realism and the ground is scattered with trees. This makes the forest more realistic.
As the player walks through the forest, one may encounter various forest creatures such as boars, wolves, and bears. After journeying upstream one will have been in 6 or more interactions with these enemies. At the end of the river, there is a fountain, which was made by lowering the terrain and filling with water. There are reeds and rocks surrounding the fountain and an armor-less next to the fountain. The character can then click on Scudamore for a conversation to occur. Sir Scudamore describes his heartbreak and that Amoret is being held captive in Castle Busirane. There is a bag containing Scudamore’s Arms sitting next to him, which can be picked up but not used and can be examined. As far as Scudamore’s image, he has very little clothing on and not metal armor. He has a beard and brown hair and is not very menacing in appearance.
