The author is Simon Avery (whose name crops up a couple of more times in this month's article.) With Simon's adventures you know before you begin that you are going to gently have your leg pulled and this three part adventure is no exception. You play the part of Sid, a thief of some repute, leading a party of companions consisting of the beautiful Lady Gwendoline, Shortstop the dwart, Nasna the magician, Bruce the wolfhound and Fred the young apprentice. Various other characters appear that you can talk to as well as trying to complete your quest of finding Shortstop's long lost Uncle Gordo. This text only game is written with the Quill and is available on both tape (£4) and disc (£6).
