Bard's Tale 1 playthrough

Sorry that I haven't been updating this section of the website much.  I've been focusing on other things and haven't played Bard's Tale in a while.  However, I did come across this little tidbit that I thought I should share:  girldrinkdrunk1 has posted a complete playthrough of Bard's Tale 1 on YouTube.  To quote:

This is a complete playthrough of a classic computer RPG. Things could have been done more efficiently in retrospect, but it could've taken longer. With the benefit of hindsight, I would probably delay entry into Harkyn's castle until I have both spellcasters with mind blade (probably grinding for exp after getting tough enough to solo/duo the catacombs zombie fight). At this point, the party could probably get past Kylearan's tower and collectively level up off the ghoul fight in Mangar's Tower level 2. When the front line people are ~level 20 would be a good time to attempt to kill Mangar (although it is still a risky proposition at that point). Also, I would not sell the speedboots. I looked up what they did afterwards. ;_;
