(re: QFG 3: Shadows of Darkness???)
what ended up happening is that quest for glory 3 was supposed to be set as shadows of darkness, known to us as qg4. however, when the coles were designing shadows, they said that they realized that the hero himself was not ready for the type of battles he would face, and so they went to the wages of war in a jungle scenario to flesh out more of the story. that’s from an article that i read way back when sierra had their own little quarterly magazine that was basically an advertisement for all of their new games. hope that helps you.
