Summary

SORCERER, the second of a spellbinding fantasy series in the tradition of ZORK, takes you on a magical tour through the darker side of Zorkian enchantment. Your journey begins with a cryptic diary - the last trace of the now-vanished Belboz the Necromancer, grand and powerful leader of the Guild of Enchanters. It is feared that Belboz is in thrall to evil sorcery. If so, the very existence of the Circle of Enchanters could be forfeit. To rescue the kingdom and locate your mentor in the treacherous mists of time, you must gain the power and cunning of a true Sorcerer.

In 1984, Sorceror was advertised on the back cover of Boy's Life magazine in an attempt by Infocom to reach a larger audience. The plan backfired when postal workers decided not to deliver that issue of the magazine on the grounds that it "advertised a satanic product". And they wonder why the post office is going bankrupt?

Within this game is the first appearance of the vicious Dorn beast, which chases you through the deadly glass maze trying to make tasty stew out of you. The name of the beast, "Dorn," comes from the then current Infocom director of marketing, Mike Dornbrook. As is often the case, there was some degree of animosity between the people who write the games and the people who sell them. No one but the designers know what Mike did to be memorialized as a disgusting, greedy, slavering beast (who falls to his untimely death).
