I was wondering if anyone knows how I might go about getting a copy of the game manual for “Torin’s Passage”? Recently, I purchased the game on Ebay, but the person had lost the manual. 🙁
I know I don’t really need the manual to play the game…but I always enjoy reading the manuals that come with the games prior to playing them. They often contain some backstory that you don’t get from the game’s opening scenes.
Any help would be appreciated.

(re: Torin’s Passage Manual) The website replacementdocs.com has been mentioned numerous times – I don’t know if they have a manual for Torin’s Passage or not.
I don’t have a proper copy of the game – I have just a CD I picked up from a computer store – no box or anything. The CD does come with a CD booklet though – nothing special or that interesting inside – there’s a photo of the game team on the back of it, but that’s relatively small. I suspect Torin’s Passage is from the era when Sierra was making those nifty get started hint guide / booklet things, colorful foldouts that looked pretty (other games they did this for were KQ7, SQ6…) but I don’t know that for sure.
The back of the CD case itself is not even Torin-related, as Sierra started doing at this time too, which I found annoying. It has an ad for Shivers.

And Shivers has an ad for Torin’s Passage!
I find this annoying too.
I have only the CD and booklet. I don’t know if there was a separate manual. KQ7, which came out around the same time, had only a jewel case insert, no separate manual. The KQ7 strategy guide hint book thing was sold separately (but IIRC I got mine for free with a coupon from InterAction magazine)… Maybe Torin’s Passage had something similar? If so, I’d love to see it.

The Manual was just in the form of the 24 page liner notes. I can scan it and upload it later in the week, if anyone wants it.

(re: re: re: re: Torin’s Passage Manual) Oh yes! If you wouldn’t mind, I would love it if you could scan and upload the manual. Even if there’s nothing “really important” in it, I still enjoy reading through the manual before starting a game. I was rather disappointed that the person I’d bought the game from had lost it. (Yes, this will be my first time playing through Torin’s Passage! I’m currently making my way through Mask of Eternity for my first time.)
Many Thanks! 🙂

Torin’s Passage was a fun little game. I have uploaded the manual to the museum area. Enjoy
