Silvern Castle Version 9.4 Released

By Jeff Fink

After almost two years without a release, I’m happy to announce
Silvern Castle version 9.4. This is a very minor update to the program.  Changes in version 9.4 include:

Bugs Fixed in v9.4:
* In some cases the encumbrance display at camp incorrectly displayed the penalty.

Stuffed Changed in v9.4:
* The B)urden display at camp now shows the exact amount of cn needed to remove any encumbrance penalty.
* Moved the Market C)amp command from the Blue Knight Tavern to the main menu I)nspect Party option.
* Higher chance for more monsters in lairs, depending on level.
* Tweaked door outlines.

About Silvern Castle
Silvern Castle is a fantasy role-playing game (RPG) for the Apple II in the spirit of the classic Wizardry. Unlike Wizardry, which was written in Pascal  and proclaimed as a game “that simply could not have been written in Basic”; Silvern Castle is almost entirely written in AppleSoft Basic.

Purchased by Softdisk Publishing in 1988, Silvern Castle was never published. After Softdisk discontinued Apple II publishing, I requested and received permission from Softdisk to have the rights to the program revert back to me. Released for the first time as shareware in 1999, I subsequently reclassified it to freeware status later in 2000.

I’ve had this update on the back-burner for some time – nice to see
some feedback, it’s given me the incentive to finally release it. The
biggest change is the forward door outlines look more in perspective.
