Braun with friend and co-author Geoffrey Genz completed their first adventure The Caves of Treasure Island in 1980, and three of four months later they each started writing their own. "We each had our own vision we wanted to play with," recalls Genz, "but they were both done on my machine, and probably finished in mid to late 1981." Genz's adventure was titled The Caverns of the Sphinx and Braun's Dracula's Chateau.
In correspondence with Huw Williams in 2020, Genz didn't recall specifically how or when the two adventures made their way into the larger world, and ultimately to the Eamon Adventurer's Guild. "My guess would be that we delivered them very early on to the local Apple computer club... and someone from the club kept copies that eventually got submitted."
The EAG formally released Dracula's Chateau in June 2003.
