INTRODUCTION
------------

There is a place in the Western Atlantic, where more than 100 planes
and ships have literally vanished into thin air. Many people refer to
this area as The Devil's Triangle. Of more than 1000 lives have been
lost in this area in the last 26 years, not one body or piece has been
ever found.

As an experienced adventurer, you are asked to explore this area of
hopes of finding an explanation and possible solution to this
mystery. Many top top scientists have come up with several possible
explantions. The most widely excepted explantions is the possibility
of submerged crystals, actins as laser beams which destrub or destroy
navigational equip- ment of ships and planes. These crystals are
thought to been used by the 'ancient' Atlanteans as a power source,
specifically located in the 'Tongue of the Ocean'.
