About Commodore 64 Pool of Radiance

Pool of Radiance is the first role-playing game conversion on the C64 based on the official Dungeons & Dragons rules. With eight disk sides, it was one of the most extensive games of its time. The game is set in the Forgotten Realms world, specifically in the town of Phlan. At the beginning of the game, players create a party by choosing from six different races (dwarves, elves, gnomes, half-elves, halflings, and humans) and four character classes (fighter, cleric, thief, and wizard). Non-human characters can also belong to multiple classes (e.g., fighter-thief). Character classes determine which weapons can be used in combat and what armor can be worn. For example, clerics only use blunt weapons, while thieves do not use bows and only wear light leather armor. Magic can only be used by clerics and wizards, but they must memorize their spells before fights during a rest. The group can also recruit experienced NPCs for their adventures. During battles, characters earn experience points, which increase their combat power and life points and enable them to use more powerful spells. Additionally, after a victorious battle, the group can collect the enemies’ weapons, armor, and treasures.
