Just thought I would let people know that those of you who liked Bard's Tale series by EA now has a 'new' version. I asked if it would run under linux and they said that all they needed was DOS, I don't know if this helps or not.
There IS however a games 'based upon' the old version of Bards Tale which has a Linux version called Devil Whiskey. They have a playable demo version and you can either download the full thing (for around $20) or buy a copy of it with all the manuals (around $30).
Anyway, just thought I would mention it for those of you who are interested.
