Well of the Great Ones

About the Story

"Evenhold is in great danger!" you are told one day over drinks in the Main Hall. Rumors tell of zombies marauding through the countryside, and of strange magics deep in the Arcosian Swamp. Beware, adventurer, for the Great Old Ones may rise from their eternal slumber!

This is the latest adventure ported to Eamon Remastered, The Well of the Great Ones by Mike Ellis. This is a frightening journey into a world threatened by Lovecraftian monsters, and an eldritch cult intent on summoning the most horrific beasts from outer worlds.

The Well is a somewhat forgotten treasure among Eamon adventures. It was only partially completed by its original author back in the 1990s. Eamon Adventurers' Guid president Tom Zuchowski accepted the challenge to finish it himself for the Apple II. He mostly succeeded, but for a few missing pieces that prevented the quest from being totally completed. The Eamon Remastered version fixes the incomplete threads and ties up a few loose ends in the storyline, while attempting to preserve the horror of the original writing. Give it a try, if you dare.

Off-Site Reviews


This is a pretty fair example of a foray into Lovecraft's "Cthulhu" Mythos. It's very dark, and if you manage to call up one of the Old Ones, you will surely die. It does a good job of conveying the desired atmosphere, which is one of great unpleasantness and danger.
