 Geez, it brings a tear to my eye seeing this game live again!  Grin

My original floppy disks got ruined and after several failed attempts to contact Accolade to inquire about replacements, I had given up on ever being able to play this great game again.

Thanks Toys for Bob and thanks to whoever worked on this!  I played the heck out of this game so long ago...I feel like a kid again!  Grin

This game still has some of the best music ever.

P.S. I know Erol Otus did work in SC2 (I can see his distinctive style in many parts of the artwork).  I’m a huge fan of Erol Otus.

One thing I always wondered about though…Paul Rieche III is listed in the “acknowledgements” section of the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook (the red book with the Otus art on the cover).  Does anyone here know what Mr. Rieche contributed to that product?  Was he another TSR employee at some point?  (Kind of interesting, two other famous D&D artists, Jeff Dee and Bill Willingham, did some work for Master of Orion (1)…some world the gaming industry must be, or have been.)

*Winnie!*  Grin

Paul wrote for a few adventure modules if memory serves.
Nitpick:  The art on the cover of the "redbook" 1983 Basic Set was done by Larry Elmore, not Erol Otus.  Erol's art graced the 3 prior "magenta" basic sets.
