Theldrow is a turn-based computer role-playing game, written in 1989 by Glenn Andreas. The game featured a turn-based first person perspective interface similar to early Might and Magic games, pixel art (originally black-and-white), and a very original fantasy setting. It is a very difficult game.

DL #1 is v. 2.3 (folder)

DL #2 is v. 2.2 (folder) and contains a help file and the Theldrow Mythologies file

Compatibility

The top download contains both the color and B&W versions of the game.

Thanks, mrdav! I was worried it might have been lost to time and didn't expect anyone to find it, certainly not so quickly!

I've been trying to collect some general info & cheating tips (since this is such a hard game), and the mythology was noticeably lacking background. With this file and the Hypercard stack shared by Carl, I put a small Tips & Cheats page over on Cythera Guides.

I have to say, even though I'm a bigger fan of his other RPG Cythera, once I got into Theldrow, I actually enjoyed this game quite a bit. Glenn Andreas has a talent for creating fantasy worlds with rich backstories, although we only get a glimpse of it through the games themselves.

Does anyone have the "Mythology of Theldrow" file? It's referenced in the documentation but not included in this download.

I would be interested in the B&W version...

The above DL contains both b&w and color versions of the game.

I would be interested in the B&W version since I am running on a real toaster mac.

The download link here did not work for me - the .sit extracts, but the resulting "Boden" file is not an runnable. The download from http://www.old-games.com/download/4081/theldrow works fine though.

I played the CRAP out of this game. There was a sinister cheat of bartering, rebuying and reselling that could get you virtually unlimited money. This made it very easy to cheat, but took a long time to accrue.

A great adventure game!

I also have the B&W version, but since this version works in B&W too, that doesn't need to be uploaded right?

I would also think so.

About the HyperCard stack:

Hm...

Manual upload seems to be a good idea, better than a separate upload.
Please, wrap it into .img.sit before uploading, as usual. Wink

What do we do with cheat documents? I have a Hypercard stack with a complete map of this game. Should I just upload it as the manual?

I also have the B&W version, but since this version works in B&W too, that doesn't need to be uploaded right?

This game was awesome and hard as all-get-out. I never managed to beat it because I would get so close, then die. Anyone want to share the solution?
