Grendel's Cave utilizes facing. The direction you are facing is always the top of the page. The display is top down, and you always face the direction that you just moved. When you are in Heorot Hall, north is towards the wall with the bedroll. When you start a new game, you face north until you make your first move. If you click on the door to your right, you turn right and move out the door. You are now in the countryside facing east. The guesthouse and barn are to your left and are north. You force your thane to always face north by purchasing and carrying a compass. Click on the Barn to move into the barn and then click on the compass. Now, no matter where you move you will always face north.
