|Quest for Glory
1: So You Want to be a Hero?
The first game, originally called Hero's Quest, takes place in the German
town of Spielburg. The valley was cursed when the Baron angered the
evil ogress Baba Yaga. She cursed him to loose everything he held
dear, and he did. Elsa, his daughter, has been missing for ten years,
and his son Bernard has been missing for five. A group of brigands
have set up base in the valley, way-laying all who enter.
