Silvern Castle, the popular role-playing game for 8-bit Apple II computers released only a year ago at KFest ’99, has been updated to version 5.0!

Also, clerics can now identify items like druids, back-row characters have a lower chance of being hit during melee combat, NPCs may exchange information if they surrender, spellbooks and holy symbols can be dropped, and there’s been some fine-tuning to the monsters. A new expert scenario, “Time Master”, is included, but can only be played by registered owners.
