Difficulty Level: Advanced

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.

Sorcerer was Infocom's 11th game (and the 5th fantasy game. It's the second part of the ENCHANTER trilogy). It was written by Steve Meretzky, the author of Planetfall.

After defeating the evil Warlock in ENCHANTER, you became a member of the Circle of Enchanters. Lately, you seem worried about Belboz, your mentor and friend, who seems to be acting strangely. Belboz is the most powerful enchanter of the land and it would be a tragedy if his powers were used for evil purposes...
