The Playing Screen The Legend of the Elves is controlled using the mouse only. The mouse controls the cross hair pointer which is used to select objects and actions on the screen. The playing screen is split into two main parts; The Playing Area (showing Eric's current location) and the Control Panel (containing the Verbs and Inventory). The majority of the screen is taken up by the Playing Area - this is where you see where Eric is and where the game takes place. Below the Playing Area is the Sentence Line where sentences are formed to control Eric. Below the Sentence Line is the Control Panel. The Control Panel contains the actions (verbs) which are used to control Eric (such as Pick Up, Look At etc.) and the Inventory Boxes which show what Eric is carrying. Eric can carry a maximum of 18 items at any one time. The arrows at the side of the Inventory Boxes are used to navigate around the inventory (you can only see 6 of the 18 inventory boxes available at any one time) See Using the Control System for more information.
