Missing and Mysteries

I thought I would centralize, in this entry, all of the games that we either can’t find or that I’ve found unplayable or unwinnable in some mysterious way. This should make it easier for readers who stumble across the blog to offer hints. I’ll remove titles (or otherwise flag them) […]

The Root of All Evil

            “The CRPG Addict” is about to enter its tenth year. Clearly, it’s here to stay. In some ways, it has become as much of an addiction for me as the games themselves. Unfortunately, it is long past time to consider how I can better justify the amount of time […]

Black Crypt: Something About Magic

The party prepares to unleash death on a dracolich.               Black Crypt‘s approach to magic might be its most unusual feature, and it’s something I didn’t highlight very well in the first two entries. Each spellcasting class (cleric, druid, magic-user) has five spellbooks, each with four spells, for a total […]
