I'm the creator of Bard's Tale. I've recently released a fantasy RPG for the Amazon Alexa voice service, that is truer to the original game than anything since. See for more information.

I have the Google Play download of this game on my phone and on my Kindle 7 Fire. I purchased materials on the phone, but would like to transfer them to the version on the Kindle. Is there any way to do this? Thanks, and I haven't had this much fun with a game in decades.

+Rebecca Heineman, how's the remaster coming?! I can't wait!

Greetings fellow travelers.  Many years ago I heard that when the first Bard's Tale was made it was believed that the AD&D system was too complex for computers to be able to handle.  Then Bard's Tale came out and showed that it could be done, paving the way for all the other computer RPGs using AD&D-style systems of the time.  Of course Bard's Tale doesn't use AD&D per se', but its system is extremely close.  Has anyone else heard this tale?

Long shot that anyone here would remember, but is their a way in Bard's Tale I, in game, to learn the stats of the items you get?

For example, what's the damage on the "Dayblade" vs a Mithril Sword?

I know I can look it up online, but was wondering if they had to hack the game files, or if I'm just missing a command somewhere.

Just spotted Dragon Wars is up for sale on GOG. :)

I've always wondered about the  Death Snares of Destiny Knight.  I managed to solve some portion of them by understanding them, and some portion by randomly guessing, and some I've never understood how they're supposed to work.

Do we have, among us, people capable of putting together explanations of how the hints point towards the solution and/or creating some kind of hintbook for the game?

I know there's an official cluebook, but even reading through it, many of them still don't make sense to me.
