You are in Room One. There is a giant octopus in the room, and it immediately attacks you. It has a Monster Rating of 10 for each of its eight arms. It starts fighting you with two arms (MR of 20) and each combat round/turn it adds an additional arm with a rating of 10, until all 8 arms are fighting. On any one combat turn you can't get more hits than its total rating at the moment. Each combat turn, combine its arms which are fighting into one total rating. If you kill the octopus, take 80 experience points; and roll one die and multiply by ten to see how many gold pieces you find in the room.
If you think he looks too tough to fight, you may try to Run Away.
You may now Exit Buffalo Castle, or you may leave this room through the West Door, or through the East Door.
