Steps

  1. 1
    Setup your user interface.
    I am going to go ahead and move a few things around on the screen. I'm going to move the chat down and make it a bit larger so that we can see our chat a little bit better as we are playing the game. We are going to move our shortcut bar over toward the middle of the screen. Next, I am going to move our status meter up and out of the way and move the focus orb to the bottom corner opposite our chat box. The focus orb allows us to see the player's challenge rating (CR). For example, if we right-click on the woman we see she her picture, we see she is a CR 9 (which means level 9). If we right-click on our self, our picture will come up in the focus orb and we can see that we are CR 1 or level 1. So, she is significantly better off, but that is OK because we are the hero and she is not. You can toggle the quest log, and from it you can access the full list of objectives, bonuses, play through bonuses, monsters killed, traps disabled, secret doors, things you've smashed, whether you've come in and out, how many times you've died, etc. If you die, it is not that big of a deal, because you do not lose anything and you return to the point where you died. It is mostly just an inconvenience. So, let's go ahead and get started.

  2. 2
    Run up and talk to the woman.
    Double-click on the woman to talk. We have to tell her what we are doing, so we are going to choose an option. More often than not, these options do not matter, but there are certain areas where they do. We can continue the quest dialogue, or if you are the kind of person who likes to get right into it, we will click 'that sounds good, lead the way'. So I am going to click that.

  3. 3
    Go into the cave.
    Here we get a new objective, which is to climb the ladder. We also have our tool tips, which pop up here, to tell us what we have to do. As you start playing the game you will get these tool tips and you can click 'x' to close them if you do not like them.

  4. 4
    Climb the ladder.
    You actually do not need to do anything to climb on a ladder; you just walk up to it and hop onto it. Another thing you can do is press 'T'. This will allow you to move your head with the mouse like you would if you were using your own head. At any rate, let us run up the ladder.

    Follow the glowing runes.
    I'm using the right mouse button to see where I am going. Then I am going to use the space bar to jump up the rock ledges. You can also look around and see things if you want to.

    Enter the next section.
    You had the important job of opening the door. Good job! Fight the monsters. Fight the monsters by clicking the right mouse button. You can also hold down the right mouse button. If you hold down the shift key and press up or down it will allow you to roll forward or backward. It can be helpful to roll when you are fighting more than one creature. You have to kill them all then you will get a new objective.

    Find a way out.
    Let us go ahead and swim down. Now to swim you use the right mouse button as the tool tip indicates and in this case, we are going to look down and push the arrow key in order to swim down.

    Rest or heal.
    These are for regaining health and resting. The blue ones let you heal, and the flame one brings you back to life. So, you are going to want to go ahead and click the blue moon to rest. The game is very PG, and as you saw in the fighting, it is mostly monsters or evil bad guys. There is not a lot of blood, gore, or other unpleasantness.

    OK, inside are a shield, a bow, some armor, some arrows, and a ring of water breathing which would have come in handy earlier.
    If you have astral shards, which are these little things down here, in the lower corner under the focus orb, then you can re-roll loot. In this case, however it is not worth it. Usually, it is never worth it.
