Translation Decoder Wheel
Runes on outer and inner circle (Easpruar/Dethrek) on this codewheel are the same as at the others SSI's Golbox game codewheels like Pools of Radiance and Hillsfar, but words under the paths are different.
After the title screen, a copy protection screen was displayed consisting of two pictures (symbols of Espruar Rune and Dethek Rune) and a line (Path). The player was required to use this decoder wheel to line up the pictures, then enter the word revealed on the code wheel under the Path line. After three unsuccessful attempts, the game automatically shut down.
