I love seeing this! To this day, QFG (HQ!) is still my favourite game series. In fact, I've played variations on my hero (thief/magic user/paladin, oh yeah!) ever since, in many a game. And now that I'm playing tabletop RPGs, my rogue is back at it again!
The people behind the game have launched a new game in the same spirit, called Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption (www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…. It was kickstarted almost two years ago, before I'd even heard of KS, so I missed it.
You can pick up the whole series of games on GOG.com, sometimes on sale for as little as $5 for all, or reg. $10. Not yet playable on Mac (within dual-booting), more's the pity.
