Everybody remember DragonQuest? It was SPI's answer to D&D, and it had a good run before it went out of print. There were three editions, the last in 1989.
Anyway, DragonQuest author Eric Goldberg has asked me to try to track down a DQ manuscript I wrote in the early '80s. If SPI had remained in business, this would have come out as an SPI book about worldbuilding. But . . . not in this timeline.
I no longer have that manuscript. Pesky flood . . . This was so long ago that it was actually typed, on an actual typewriter, so no electronic copies exist. But I know that at least twice, at the request of DQ fans, I sent out photocopies. So here's a long-shot request: If any of you were recipients, or second-hand recipients, or whatever, of this material, can you get in touch with me? Thanks!
For years, there have been rumors about the old DragonQuest team, well, doing something together again. This is the clearest indicator that something is in the works. For my part, I obviously wasn't even when the first edition of DQ was released; I only discovered the game around 2007, but since then I've been a fan: The adventures, especially "The Enchanted Forest" by Jennell Jaquays, are among my all-time favorites. Whenever I run a game, I think of these old modules first.
