Pool of Radiance (DOS)

|This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.|
Are you a bad enough dude to
Pool of Radiance is the first in a series of Gold Box games, and for that matter the first proper Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. The engine for this game would prove to be quite reusable for the next few years.
When starting the game through the DOS command prompt, type in start.exe STING.
The following effects will happen on entering this:
- Skip the title screen.
- Pressing Control + C quits the program.
- Get maps for all of the areas.
- When the player is in a training menu, press J. Training is free, there is no class limitation, and the EXP required is given after doing the training.
- Alt + X or the - key kills all the enemies, complete with a message saying "The Gods intervene!"
Hidden in start.exe is a few text strings that don't make a proper in-game appearance:
