I guess it's time to throw in a few suggestions of games that could be added to the site. So far the site doesn't have a separate category for role-playing games, yet there are quite a few notable shareware and free games that could be added.

I'll provide links to game descriptions at MobyGames or other sources whenever possible.

NOTE: The game is actually freeware, however the developers do not allow to distribute the full version anywhere except the official website.

On a second thought, you might want to use the smaller demo that only has MIDI music for the "play online" version, whereas keeping the big one (the one from FilePlanet) as a download.

A couple more suggestions, if you don't mind Happy

Dungeon Master II: The Legend of Skullkeep
Type: Playable Demo
Download: Internet Archive

The Elder Scrolls: Arena
Type: Playable Demo
Download: arenadmo.zip

NOTE: The full version of this game was released as freeware by Bethesda, however because it's not a quick-playing game it's probably better to put up a demo with a single dungeon instead of the full game for online play in the browser.

The Elder Scrolls: Chapter II - Daggerfall
Type: Playable Demo
Download: FilePlanet

NOTE: Similar to Arena, Daggerfall is also free, however a single dungeon demo may be more appropriate for online play.

Ishar 3: The Seven Gates of Infinity
Type: Playable Demo
Download: ISHAR3.ZIP

Legends of Valour
Type: Playable Demo
Download: VALOR.ZIP

Lords of Doom
Type: Free (originally shareware)
Download: LOD1.ZIP

Towers: Lord Baniff's Deceit
Type: Shareware
Version: 1.21
Download: TOWERSJV.ZIP

FilePlanet's download server is offline, but the large shareware version can be downloaded here.
