Spellcasting 101 (Legend Entertainment)

Yes, Steve Meretzky's Spellcasting 101! Oh, the excitement! Not only that, but this is the first transcript crossover with another site. See, Robb Sherwin over at http://www.caltrops.com asked me to review S101 for his site. Somewhere along the way, I thought, huh, I can still share the transcript over here. So, before or after you read the transcript here, go over to caltrops and read my review, which will definitely cover some things I don't talk about here.

How it Begins



"In the corner is a pile of rotting hay -- the only thing you have that passes for a bed."

The Transcript


Final Thoughts

Things I forgot to mention in my review- first off, I made a fair amount of progress into the game using Trizbort's automapping feature (this is why my transcript is peppered with >see commands) before eventually realizing that S101 has a built-in map feature.

Also, it is interesting that despite no longer being burdened by the space limitations of the Z-Machine, S101 has its share of throwaway responses, like the response to >TALK TO <person>, which is "Blah, blah, blah..." On one hand, this is a missed opportunity to present a very polished game, but on the other hand, it shows just how important it is to have priorities when writing responses. Sometimes I wonder if the cross that modern IF bears is its obligation to try to provide a nice response to everything. Maybe we need to take a step back.

  1. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is GARY ,i live in United States,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so he told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice and i contacted DR OGUN and he told me that my wife will come back to me after 2 days and he cast the spell and sent me a package which i used after using the package my wife came back to me,telling me how much she loves me and how much she miss me,i can boldy stand for this old man any where any day and if you are outh there having this kind of problem or anything is troubling you just kindly contact him right now at LOVESPELLTEMPLEE@GMAIL.COM, THE OGUN YOU ARE THE BESTemail lovespelltemplee@gmail.com
