Hey Steve !

We are still waiting for Spellcasting 401! Me and my friends enjoyed playing all your games. They sure don't make them like they used to. The last enjoyable game that I played was Erik the Unready by Legend (which is similar to spellcasting).
Hope you will return to producing more of those goodies. All the best in all your future endeavours!

I have enjoyed all of the Legend text adventures and I agree that they are well-written, interesting stories with interesting music to boot. You would not want all of your games in this format, but I think they represent a unique part of the computer game history. The Gateway series, Eric the Unready and the Spellcasting series were all fun.

What about spellcasting 201 solution ?

I agree wholeheartedly with your review of the Spellcasting Series.
I really wish that someone would put out a 401, and then see what
happens when Ernie GRADUATES! *g* But I did have a question for
you as well. I have the original games, but in diskette format
and the disks, as you may have guessed, are old enough that I'm having
problems reading them to reinstall the games. There was a couple of
"game packs" that had the Spellcasting series in them, but I can't
find anyone who lists them for sale anymore. Do you know where I
could buy a copy?
