Barrow Hill:Curse Of The Ancient Circle
By:Puzzle Master (Randy Taylor Jr.)
In Barrow Hill there are some things in the game that might or might not
happen (in other words random)
1) Sometimes you will get a call from Emma.
2) Sometimes when you talk to Ben in the Office you might hear a different
3) If you happen to go down the road or down a trail and see a big stone in
the middle of the road or trail this is the "Sentry Stone". Do not I repeat
DO NOT touch it,if you do you die. When you die you will start back
where you died. If you happen to see the "Sentry Stone" just turn around
and go back,then turn back around and see if the Sentry Stone is gone.

the whole game. (When I played the Sentry Stone rarely appeared.)
