Leveling Up in Classic RPGs the Easy Way

None of us has the free time or patience we once had, both of which were necessary when playing the epic role playing games of our youth. Coming back to an RPG these days can be a nostalgic trip, but frustrating, since they often require hours of hacking, questing, and dying (repeatedly) at the hands of a lower level enemy, before getting to the good parts we all remember.
Using The Bard’s Tale, an Apple II emulator, and a hex editor, I will demonstrate hacking a disk image to quickly level up a party of characters, so they are ready to take on the big baddies. This demo will be specific to The Bard’s Tale games, but the technique is applicable to other games and genres
