Jesus said, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body."[Matt 10:28] God can totally destroy us.

Jesus also said, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”[John 6:40] Eternal life is conditional.

His disciple John wrote, "Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. [1 John 5:12] Eternal life is optional.

Not I. Completely unfamiliar with it.

Back in day, I vaguely recall playing the Amiga version, called Dragons Breath. But never bothered with the MS-DOS version.
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

Yes, aka Dragon's Breath. That version won't be helpful because I'm looking for "page x, line x, and word x" to start the game IYKWIM. And I can't find a download on the planet for the ms-dos manual. :(

In that case, you're likely better off using an emulator to play the Amiga version instead (available here courtesy of LemonAmiga.com).

You'll probably discover graphics and audio are improved with the Amiga version in comparison with the DOS version anyway. Then you can use this scanned PDF of the Dragons Breath manual to look up the necessary disk protection keywords (or perhaps the keywords weren't any different in the DOS version? I wouldn't know).

EDIT: Here's a screenshot of the disk protection keywords from the linked PDF above, just in case they're valid for the DOS version, too:

Thanks, Anonymous. Amiga emulation is a solid Plan B... and its free! (I found a $42 ms-dos version for sale)

The Amiga .pdf won't work for the dos game. In fact, you'll notice that the Amiga keyword's locations are different for English, French, or German players.

I'll wait a little while longer to see if someone can help with a scan. Anyone, please PM me if you can help.
