Cool Still alive

I've come back after a decade to add box art, a walkthrough, and possibly even a book (or at least a chapter of) for my favorite forgotten gem "Wrath of Earth".

I am actually starting a full proper walkthrough, just because I have fond memories about this game and it was so bloody hard.

I have, for once and all, started an attempt at a walkthrough, text-based at minimum and MAYBE with screenshots at some of the nastier bits.

Fingers crossed, this game is a doozy to write a...

Will get the screenshots up by end of today.

One of the 5 1/4 disks won't read, but thankfully the 3 1/2 copied without a hitch. Scanned the reference card and working on the manual now; I'll try to...

Thanks! Sorry about the massive size, forgot about that. And I'll see about those **** lines.

As to the rest of the stuff - how do I upload disk images and everything?

Doh!
