Come hear the tale of Skara Brae

I dreamed of playing the old Bard's Tale games I loved so much on the Apple IIe at least 100 years ago. As so often happens in videogame dreams, the perspective kept shifting between being myself playing the game on a computer, and being a character within the game.

I hadn't played or even thought about those games much in 20 years or so, but today I woke up desperate to play them again. I just downloaded the three games off this Bard's Tale site, in the original Apple II format, and shall take a shot at running through them once again. Woo!

Happy and merry holidays, current and belated, where applicable.
