Desert Fox

UPDATE: It’s for this place.

UPDATE II: Here’s the reference. Truth be told, it’s a little before my time (at least interest-wise, not necessarily chronologically), but I knew the source. I was a Leather Goddesses of Phobos man, m’self. . . .


  1. Nice! That brings me back, which also ages me a bit. I got a signed copy of the novel based on that game. I remember the story was a bit weird, but not much else about it, except at one point the hero had to slice a golden apple in to for two women. The apple had \for the fairest\ written on it and the hero split it so that the halves read \for the fair\ and \est\, which translated into something. Yeah. But the game was fun, as text-based rpg’s went.

  2. I always got far enough to kill myself with the sword, and gave up.

  3. Wait. If the door is boarded, the callbox is a ruse.
