?? ancient warlords?

It’s interesting to me how the language on the back of this box is different from the blurbs you’d read on the PC versions… they worked very hard to make it sound Zelda-like. (Like the talk about magical items to supplement your mortal strength.) I wonder how well this sold?

Great line about the wise owl, too. Fortunate, my arse.

Can anyone identify the screens on the box? The top one looks like Mordack’s lab (but I wouldn’t have guessed it without his dialogue picture there). What about the other screesn? What’s that spider one?
