About the Story

Methinks if I live 'till the seas have withered I'll ne'er know of more adventure than befalleth those that quest for the sword bearing the name Myraglym. Many have abandoned their earthly toils to pursue this great sword o' magic. Legend saeth this mighty blade rests 'neath the lake at Blackpoole, where evil serpents and horrid plants have a taste for the flesh of humans. And yea, even man has taken arms against his fellow man in search of Myraglym. So come hither be ye brave. For if ye seek a life of adventure, ye too must go in search of the Blade of Blackpoole. Travel with wisdom and cunning and the magic powers of Myraglym shall be for none other.

Blade of Blackpoole
This issue, we'll take our first look at an illustrated Adventure. I've chosen Sirius' "Blade of Blackpoole" because it deserves more recognition than it has received so far.

Sirius is best known for their arcade games for the Apple. Several of the better ones such as "Bandits" and "Wayout" have been translated for the Atari, but "Blade of Blackpoole" was their first translation of an Adventure. It is an illustrated Adventure somewhat like the well known Sierra On-Line series, but of a much higher quality. The game was designed by Tim Wilson and runs on an Atari with 48k and an 810 disk drive.
