  1. I made my preorder and look forward to the game. The boxart with the two sides is clever, the map looks great – but what’s that bizarre mountain with the red strips on top of it in the right corner? The map itself looks fantastic but that part seems totally unfitting, almost as if somebody opened MS Paint and thought it to be a good idea to draw some red lines on the map…

    1. Hi Alexander, thanks for your support!
      Just know that, as captioned on the picture of the map, it’s only a 3D rendition of what it would be. It’s not a real photo of the actual map!

      1. Ah ok, I understand, so the red lines are not part of the final product I guess? Thank you for the explanation. 🙂 Cloth maps are something I hold very dear in RPGs. By the way: I still mourn the fact that I missed the one together with the boxed version of Realms of Quest V. If I may ask: Is there another edition planned?

        1. There might be another ~very~ small run of RoQ5 in the near future, less than 15 boxes, but they won’t come with a coin included just the cloth map. Because of that, they will also be a bit cheaper than the original runs.

          1. That’s great to hear! Thanks!

  2. There are games and games. Thats why I preordered it physical even if I dont own a floppy drive 😅, because Im playing on TheC64(maxi), so thank them for bringing C64 back to life on several houses 😉 Perhaps Ill buy a real C64 with a floppy and the Commodore monitor of course, lets see. The advantages of TheC64 are hard to beat though.

    Well, Im looking forward to have the box in my hands, to have a manual and a clothed map to be honest. If one have a look to other actual systems and what youll get there for about the same amount of money, its pretty easy to decide if you are unsure to buy…

    It will be my first physical ‘new age’ game for TheC64 ! Good 🕹 to everyone!

    1. I fully understand what you mean, it’s exactly the same in my case: I’ll play it on the Maxi (what a marvelous device!) too. This wonderful feeling of purchasing a real box with a real manual and a cloth map alone is worth the money for me.
