"When I was a teenager in 1991, I bought the first PC I’d owned since my trusty ol’ TRS-80 (Yes kids, I’m old…). One of my first purchases was the SSI Gold Box title “Pool of Radiance.” To me, this was the height of roleplaying goodness. I used to spend HOURS going through Phlan and it’s associated locations looking to finally defeat the evil Tyranthraxus and save this part of the Forgotten Realms. The reason I bring this up is because Spiderweb Software’s “Avadon: The Black Fortress” takes me right back to those halcyon days, and I can’t keep the smile off of my face as I think abut it."
