News and Stuff

Those of you who are online all know by now that America Online kicked all the Apple II users off on November 1st and is now Mac and Windows only.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABANDONED. The A2 Roundtable on GEnie is still very active. Unlike AOL, GEnie management continues to be very friendly towards Apple II users and has given all the support we have needed for designing front-end software and offline navigators. If you are starting to feel like an orphan, get on GEnie!

To use GEnie, you need a modem and any telecom program. The best ones are ProTERM 3.1, Spectrum or Talk Is Cheap. It's my opinion that ProTERM is the finest telecom program ever written for any computer, but many GS users prefer a true GSOS program like Spectrum. Talk Is Cheap isn't as good as these two, but it has the virtue of being the cheapest decent program to buy.

All of the above programs require a minimum of a GS, IIc, or enhanced 128K IIe. If you have a II+ or 64K/unenhanced IIe, you will want to use the telecom program Modem MGR. This is an excellent program and an excellent choice for anyone with only 5.25 drives. I should also note here that you will need a minimum of two 5.25 drives to do anything worthwhile online. A 3.5 drive or hard drive is better, of course.

SD152 Banana Republic by Sam Ruby

Another Softdisk Eamon from Sam, this one is not to be missed! It actually came out a few months ago, but I neglected to add it to the list. ________________________________________________ ________________________________________________ Letters ________________________________________________

I've upgraded to a IIc, and now have two working Disk ][ drives and a disk controller to get rid of. I would like to find a good home for them among my Eamon friends. I'd like to sell the drives for $40 each and $7 for the card, or $80 for the entire lot (I pay shipping). I will sell to the best offer received.

When bug fixes are made to the DDD MAIN PGM, are they made to all already existing adventures? If not, I think it would be a good idea to print some sort of note to this effect if any more DDD MAIN PGM bugs are fixed, telling which Eamons are affected. - Phil Schulz

No changes are made to existing Eamons when a fix is made to the DDD. It would be a nightmare to fix and test dozens of Eamons, and would require a separate bug fix/report for each one, especially since the vast majority of DDD bugs are non-fatal. That's not a bad idea about pointing out the need for bug fixes in similar adventures, but the Eamon listing already shows what version every Eamon is. It is trivial for anyone to scan the list for v7 Eamons that would need the same fix that goes into the v7.1 DDD, for example. - TomZ ______________________

Why don't you offer a subscription longer than one year? Would you accept $40 for a ten-year subscription? Also, is Computist still being published? The last one I got was issue #89 in late 1993. - Dan Carman

You are welcome to send in extra money for a multi-year EAG membership. Many people do this. However, the EAG's financial picture is different from that of a real magazine, and I cannot offer multi-year discounts. I intend to explain this in more detail in the March issue as part of the annual financial statement.

You know as much about the current status of Computist as I do. It seems that an issue still comes out sporadically, but I haven't seen one for quite a while, myself. - TomZ ________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

The DEC'90 article on how to make a 10-direction had a bug in the small program that modifies EAMON.NAME. Here is the correct program:

  1. 80 The Search for the Key by Donald Brown

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 4.0 Extra Commands: OPEN, DRINK Deleted Commands: no SAVE Special Features: None Playing Time: 15 min. Reviewer Rating: 4.0 Average Rating: 4.2/4

Description: You have been selected by the king to rescue several high officials who were kidnapped last week. The king's warlock has devised a plan that should make your job fairly easy. However, for it to succeed, you must first possess the fabled Key of Molinar. The key is a magical teleportation device.

No one knows where the key currently lies. The warlock has a spell that will teleport you to the Key's vicinity. You are advised to get the key as soon as possible, and use it to return.

Comment: This Eamon is the first part of a two-part adventure. Eamon #81 is Part Two. This was the very first two-disk Eamon, and the NEUC mistakenly assigned a number to each disk. This was also originally something called a "Tournament Eamon". I have never seen the Tournament version and don't know what was involved. I assume that it incorporated some kind of scoring system for competitive play. John Nelson converted it to a normal Eamon back in 1984.

This can be played without Eamon #81, but you cannot return to the Main Hall at the end, since it exits to #81 only. I don't recommend playing this Eamon without #81.

This is one of the shortest, easiest Eamons in the list, with 26 Rooms and 7 Monsters. There are no puzzles or hidden passages. Just run through the rooms, find the Key, and teleport out. I give it a Difficulty rating of (2). ________________________________________________

  1. 81 The Rescue Mission by Donald Brown

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 4.0 Extra Commands: OPEN Deleted Commands: no SAVE Special Features: None Playing Time: 1 hour Reviewer Rating: 6.0 Average Rating: 6.7/3

Description: "You are now ready to rescue the kidnapped officials. Again, the warlock does not know where they are, but he can and will teleport you there.

"You will be carrying a lantern and the Key of Molinar, in addition to your weapons. You can teleport yourself or a friendly person home by saying their name."

Comment: This Eamon is Part Two of a two-part adventure. Eamon #80 is Part One. It would be very nice if we could reassign these two Eamons to a single number, but they have been listed separately for 10 years now.

The proper way to play this Eamon is by entering it from Eamon #80, but it was modified in 1989 so it can be played from the Main Hall also.

The 53-Room map is a simple collection of uninteresting corridors and cells, and the bad guys nearly all have names like GOON19. There is a large group of people to rescue who are spread all through the map. You will enjoy the play the most if you try to envision the original "tournament" objectives and try to rescue as many as you can, as quickly as you can. I also recommend playing the two Eamons in one sitting, as originally intended.

Except for killing umpteen goons, there isn't a lot to do or solve here, so it gets a difficulty rating of (4) from me. One hint: there's no need to wait to teleport the prisoners home. ________________________________________________

  1. 206 Curse of the Hellsblade by John Nelson and Tom Zuchowski

Reviewed by Phil Schulz

MAIN PGM Version: 7.0 Extra Commands: None Deleted Commands: None Special Features: None Playing Time: 1-2 hours Reviewer Rating: 7.5

Description: "It happened one day that you chanced upon a wondrous sword of black metal. This sword had a marvelous edge that did not dull, and it sang eerie melodies as you tested its edge against nearby saplings. But you cannot put it down! The most you can do is pass it to your left hand to free your right for other weapons.

"Later you met with some friends. One of them recognized it as a weapon of Hell, and told you of a cave that is reputed to hold the key to lift its curse. You listened closely as he told you how to find it.

"Still it is a marvelous sword, and you could do worse than to be saddled with such an obviously magical blade. The sword began its strange song as you prepared to demonstrate it for your friends. You felt a tremendous surge of strength as you severed a 6-inch limb with one blow!

"And then, even before you knew what was happening, you swung about, and you watched in horror as the sword slew all of your friends! Its song grew deeper and stronger as it tasted the blood of each. You realized then that this blade is more than just cursed, but must be possessed by a demon.

"It's plain that the sword is stronger than you, and if it drinks much more blood it will control you completely. Apart from that, it simply won't do to go about slaying everyone that you meet. Without a doubt, you must find that cave and rid yourself of the curse of this Hellsblade."

Comment: I should start out by mentioning how this Eamon came to be. It was originally designed by John Nelson for his "KnightQuest" system, which was supposed to be a sort of "Super-Eamon", but because of memory limitations of the Apple II was never finished. The only reason this was important is that the version 7 Eamon does not support a couple of things that were in this adventure to begin with, which made conversion to Eamon a bit more difficult, so I kept this in mind when reviewing it.

Anyway, I liked this one a lot. It has a clean, coherent map that wasn't too simple yet not so insanely dense that it was easy enough to map. There are a couple of unmarked secret passages that can only be found by going in that direction. When this was originally written, version 7 did not exist yet, and older adventures supported finding secret passages by LOOKing in the room. This is not a big deal, but this sort of unmarked passage really irritates me when I try to EXAMINE everything in the room, and when I don't find anything, I ignore it, only to be forced to come back later and finally figure out that there is a passage there.

(Author's Response: I must say in my defense that every room with a hidden passage had a clue in the room description, and the room name had the unusual "feature" of not listing the exits in the usual way. Even so, EXAMINE should have revealed the passages, for consistency. TomZ)

There is not a huge amount of combat here. There are a couple of tough monsters, but I didn't have much trouble getting by with a slightly "above average" character. I actually prefer this to having lots and lots of easy monsters that can be killed with one shot-- it makes play a lot less tedious. I'm not a huge "hack'n'slash" fan, but I do like a decent amount of combat. Not a lot of puzzling, either, but there were a couple I had to think about for a minute before I got by them.

I put the difficulty at about (6). It is a fun play that does not wind up requiring lots of play-through before you finally complete it. I won on my third try. ________________________________________________

Softdisk #152 Banana Republic by Sam Ruby

Reviewed by Tom Zuchowski

MAIN PGM Version: 7 (heavily modified) Extra Commands: ENTER, BUY, SELL, TALK, HOLD, SEARCH, RESUME, QUIT Deleted Commands: BLAST, POWER, SPEED, SMILE, REQUEST, READY Special Features: Requires 80-col. display; accepts lower-case input; 10 directions; standalone, does not use Eamon Master. Playing Time: 2-3 hours Reviewer Rating: 9.0

Description: "While searching for treasure, you were surprised by an evil conjuror and his warriors. In the ensuing battle, you managed to break both your swords and lose your shield to a conjured Fire Giant. Faced with imminent demise, you pulled out a little talisman that is your only remaining hope, and spoke the magic word.

"Suddenly you were falling! You prepared for the inevitable thud but all you got was a SQUISH! You landed in...what? Bananas? BANANAS! The next thing you heard was an alarm being raised. The next thing you saw were the soldiers...

"You find yourself under arrest for Trespassing -- and 'Destroying Magic Bananas'. They've got to be kidding! Finally you are taken to the leader, who says: 'The Banana Republic is facing its darkest hour. Once we were the most powerful and important nation on this continent, but now we face destruction from our enemies.

"'Our stores of magic bananas have, until now, kept the balance of power in our favor. But our enemies have started their own biological weapons programs. We have developed a new crop of extremely powerful bananas, but the seeds have been stolen by the four powers that oppose us.

"'In our orchards is an ancient tree that bears a single Time/Space Displacement banana that can return you to your own world. Return our seeds, and we will give it to you.'

"'Right,' you say, 'I'm on the job. For starters, I'll need some string, a Holocaust Cloak, a wheelbarrow, and...'"

Comment: Well, of course you don't get anything that you ask for. But the Pres does start you out with a sword, some fragmentation bananas and a sling to throw them with. From there, you are on your own (as usual!). It should go without saying that the above description is shortened from Sam's original.

This Eamon is a Softdisk sequel to Sam's very excellent "Redemption" that Softdisk published a year earlier. Though it only has 49 Rooms, it encompasses an astonishing range of interesting stuff to keep you entertained for the hours you will be playing.

"Banana Republic" is quite a bit simpler than "Redemption", and is perhaps the simplest top-quality Eamon that Sam has ever done. Once again, you must use the TALK command to discover things you need to know. From there, you must solve a succession of small puzzles and battle quite a few imposing enemies before you finally recover all of the seeds. It is not as deeply interlocked as many of Sam's top Eamons, and a careful selection among the many special-purpose bananas will be very helpful in dispatching the bad guys. It is fairly forgiving and has an excellent SAVE command. Between the smallish, symmetrical map and the logical layout, I found it easy to play with no paper map and few notes.

It requires an 80-column display, and probably won't work on a II+ without some modification. Softdisk assumes that you have 128K; though the adventure doesn't itself require 128K, you may find that other Softdisk features won't work on 64K machines.

Like all of Sam's best stuff, this is not an Eamon to be missed. I found the play to be much fun and very relaxing, and highly recommend it to puzzlers and hack'n'slashers alike. I give it a (7) for difficulty. This Eamon adventure is commercial software. You can not obtain it from the public domain but must buy it from Softdisk. Non-subscribers can purchase it for $12.95 + $1.50 S&H. Ask for Softdisk issue #152.
