What is The Bard's Tale?

The Bard's Tale is a RPG game series, much like D&D where you explore in a turn based first person like view, fight foes, gather loot and seek to destroy the head of evil.  The Bard's Tale plot is that your home town and its surroundings is frozen by a spell cast by an evil wizard.  You have to gather a small team of adventurers and go on a quest to find and defeat him and his minions in order to restore peace to Skara Brae, your home town. 

See The Bard's Tale website for more info.  They also distribute this same 1988 version for free now:
