@retromac1984: If you have a Mac running OS 9 or earlier with a built-in floppy drive, you can make a disk image using DiskDup. Thanks, we'd really appreciate it!

I have the Guild of Thieves box set with the floppy disc- any ideas on how I can upload it ?

One of the GREATEST moments of my miserable "life" was finding an
utterly pristine copy -- box/floppy/manual -- of this at "Ye Olde Infocom Shoppe" in 2006.
[Yes, I KNOW this is a Magnetic Scrolls game ....]
Then I went to The Bird Sanctuary & read that the guy running the site
was searching the World over for a Macintosh copy of "The Pawn."

So, being the swell guy that I am, I emailed him & said I've one and that if he gave me a mailing address,
I'd send him the floppy so he could copy it and then send it back when he's finished.
He replied that that'd be great & provided me with said mailing address.
In England ....

So, at my own expense, I send him the floppy.
MONTHS go by & there's nary a word, no update & most of all, NO "The Pawn" FLOPPY ....

I finally email back the guy & ask what gives?
He wrote back & haughtily said that, yes, he recieved the disk, made a copy & sent it back to me,
and that if there were any problems, that I was to blame it on the United States postal system ....

To say I was absolutely LIVID does not begin to describe my feelings.
Y'know how sometimes you get so mad you could literally cry?!?
I felt like that ....

Then, miraculosly, I find this here ....
Thank you!, whoever upped this.

Is the download link working? I just see an XML error page?

Thanks for uploading; these Rainbird games are hard to find in their Mac versions. One interesting note; if you look at the font that the menu words are done with, it's the Atari ST system font!
