    Default The Scarlet Bard

    This is a tribute to my first CRPG: The Bard's Tale - Tales of the Unknown. It shows the tavern "The Scarlet Bard", where the first dungeon is located. A part of this dungeon is shown and it looks very different when not drawn with a pencil on squared paper

    Hope you enjoy it!

    The Bard's Tale!!! That map looks great (!) and brings back memories.. For me it was also the first RPG game I played on my good ol' C64. One of the things that got me hooked on Fantasy... I completely mapped that game ... Just loved it... you enter a room with 99 skeletons.... hack.. slash.. Got the xbox version a couple of years ago but nothing beats the original... oh, the memories... thanks for mapping and sharing this ! cheers!

    I never got that darn game to run for more than 5 minutes on my old C64...and the whole time I was lost in some sort of maze of walls that all looked the same. I heard it was great from all my friends but I never got to really play it. Your bar looks pretty good.

    Brings back old old memories. I used a lot of graph paper on that game Halfling Monk ftw!

    Hehe, if you want a bit of nostalgia Warriors Tale. Pretty much a remake of the original.
