Remembering the good old days in the early 1990's when TSR and Capcom collaborated to produce
such memorable video arcade games as Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara.
This sight seeks to pay
tribute to these games and their game designers in grateful appreciation of the hours
and hours of enjoyment
they provided.

TOWER OF DOOM
The Story

The adventure takes place in the Republic of Darokin, where residents are terrorized by a series of unexplained monster attacks by kobolds, gnolls and ogres. You are asked to investigate and as your adventure takes you to battle all sorts of mystical creatures gaining both treasures and higher experience levels, you discover that these attacks are being orchestrated by a powerful creature that dwells within Sable Tower.
