adventure, first released for the Sinclair QL home computer by Byteback in Nottingham
You play the role of the heroic adventurer Claire sent on a quest by your King to find the Dragon Sword.
You first land on the island of Zethus; where something is amiss – certainly the dead bodies and skulls do not make this a tourist spot. Unfortunately, this has all the hallmarks of having fallen prey to the Dragon-Witch, an evil hag with the power to transmute into a dragon at will.
You need to explore the island with great care as the natives are less than friendly, and look for the parts of the Dragon sword, an implement capable of dealing with any dragon’s scales.
And so the adventure begins....
Quest for the Dragon Sword will give
adventure enthusiasts an excellent run for their money. Rich in
atmosphere and description, chockful of incident and excitement, it
will take many moons to solve.
"Querst for the Dragon Sword is witty, difficult and entertaining, and certainly a good deal more professional-looking than many other adventures written using Quill."
QL World November 1987
"This adventure will appeak to most mainstream adventurers. The humour isn't overwhelming, the geography is believable and the problems are not too easy."
