Bard's Tale Compendium was created in December 2000 by
Poverello Media, Ontario, Canada.
I wish to
extend personal thanks to the following folks for their help in
making this site what it is:
- Warren Ayers for playing the Commodore 64 version with
me into the wee hours of the mornings in 1987, and for introducing
me to the stunning Amiga version of The Bard's Tale. Thanks
Sinclair of the Bard's
Tale Memories web site, for letting me use his well-designed
spell lists, his amazing GIF animations of the Commodore 64 introduction
screens and Amiga game play screens, as well as contributing many
megabytes worth of Amiga screen shots for me to work with. His
site is great for the overall nostalgic feel; mixing images from
the C64 and Amiga versions of Bard's Tale and Destiny
- Tom Greene
Adventurer's Guild web site for
a fantastically organised collection of files, and letting me
use his meticulously created texts of the game manuals, item lists,
and monster lists. And to "The Bruce" at Bard's Tale Online for taking up the torch after Tom's site went down. Be sure to check out his site if you are looking
for anything file-related, because he has just about everything
- Scott Nelson of Bard'sTale.com for the letting me use some of the Commodore
64 graphics images he captured, especially the really awesome
animated GIF versions. His web site is an extremely unique attempt
at bringing the entire Bard's Tale series to your web browser;
his monthly editorials are well worth the visit.
- Jeremy Kapp who provided cleaned and corrected versions of my original Bard's Tale hand-drawn maps.
- Thanks to
all the folks from the on-line Bard's Tale fandom scene,
web ring and mailing list, who took the time to write personal
e-mails of encouragement. Your support is greatly appreciated!
