Together we will unwrap the cloaks of mystery surrounding this most excellent and memorable work of computerized fiction. And when we have extracted from this land every drop of adventuring that can be obtained, we will likely not be kept waiting. A sequel is nearing completion, even as this is being written. Somebody, please, let me know when it’s done.”
-Bob Liddil, Byte Magazine, Feb 1981
