Eamon 2.1 Original Disk Found in A.P.P.L.E. Archives

During the past week, I have been re-visiting a number of the original Apple II archives which we produced here at A.P.P.L.E. during my testing with John Morris’ Applesauce.  In the bunches of floppies, I found one disk labeled mysteriously “March Special E-Base Program“.

Initially, I thought it might be an old database program that never came to light, however, to my surprise, it was the original Eamon version 2.1 Base Program which was modified by John Nelson and Robert Plamondon for the “Anatomy of an Eamon Adventure” article in the March 1983 issue of Call-A.P.P.L.E. Magazine.

The original article has long been available in both PDF and text format on the Eamon Adventurers Guild website at www.eamonag.org while the original disk was missing.  Now they are all available once again.
