Just a brief update on my work on the From The Shadows adventure, it is turn based only and far from perfectly readable (as i would like) but will try to have time to implement the section events in a few days
I think I had a walkthrough at some point, but I can't find it now, and I don't remember the solution. I wrote it 10 years ago! I seem to recall that all the endings are possible from the moment you enter the palace at the end. You basically need to find alternatives to killing the king, and if you search the palace enough, you should find solutions.
One I half remember is as follows:
On the ground floor there is an amethyst eagle amulet that will grant you the ability to read any language. Somewhere upstairs there is a sorcerer's study in which you can find a spell, which you can read if you have the amulet. Then you need a unicorn's horn. Then you put it all together at the end.
So there is an article in Ryan's Gig Guide about the numerous times Diamond Head have been invited on stage with Metallica. There was a comment about how if there wasn't a Diamond Head there wouldn't be a Metallica. And how if there wasn't a Metallica there wouldn't be a Diamond Head second career phase.
