Oh my god Jenny, that game was like half of my childhood. I don't think I've met anyone who was as into it as my brother and me. This, and of course a thorough and informative breakdown of DFS, has brightened my day considerably.

I played it through again a couple of years back, and it was easier and cheesier than I remembered, but still surprisingly magical. I actually can trace my desire to live among trees back to the first time busting into Elvandar from the caves of Mac Mordain Cadal or whatever it was.

Yes! THIS makes me so happy!

I don't typically nerd out over fantasy stuff, but I often feel so much nostalgia for this game. I was obsessed (and apparently still am the last time I tried playing) over trying to find EVERYTHING in the game, so even though it's easier and cheesier as you said, it has a surprising amount of depth, and it's still so fun to find things, characters, and places I'd forgotten about.

So many little nooks and crannies in the Dimwood! I probably would never find them all.. without DFS that is 8)
