Synopsis

Plot

Quest is a text adventure game written in ADVSYS. The basic premise is that you stole a treasure map from a wizard. Totally pissed off, the wizard
threw a spell at you, transporting you to the valley shown on the map.

The spell landed you in me. I am your body for the duration of the quest. You command me with short English commands like "Take the sword" or "walk west".

I understand surprisingly complex commands. I also understand most reasonable
abbreviations. For example, to walk east you can type "walk east", "east", or
"e".

Good Luck!

Notes

Thief's Quest has appeared in several different versions...

RSTS/E version: April 17, 1979 (Written in Basic-Plus)
CP/M Version: August 1, 1983 (Written in S-Basic)
MS-DOS Version: November 17, 1988 (Written in ADVSYS It is the sample game in the AdvSys manual.)

Additional (partial?) PC versions were written using Alan, Hugo and TADS in 1996/7.

A PAWS/Universe version, written with Roger's own Python Adventure Writing System, was produced first in 1998 & then deemed complete by the author in 2007. The final version produced by Roger Plowman was dated 2008.

Note: The game was renamed Thief's Quest in 1996 to avoid confusion with other games and adventure systems called Quest.

The Python Adventure Writing System version has been updated by Matthias C. Hormann so it runs under the PAWS 2.1 environment.
