I went looking for my copy of Bard's Tale. (All my old Amiga stuff
is still on a bookshelf in my dining room!) It doesn't mention
anything about Wizardry characters (but then, Wizardry was never
ported to the Amiga). However, while looking, I came across "Dragon
Wars" from Interplay. The box (copyright 1989) mentions: "Supports
characters from Bard's Tale I, II & III."
