NotesEdit

  1. Though not in the same style as the other games of the series, it would seem as if Hillsfar is indeed part of the plot tying together Pool of Radiance and Curse of the Azure Bonds. The manual for the latter game states that the party ventures to Phlan (Pool of Radiance), then Hillsfar (Hillsfar), and then to Tilverton (Curse of the Azure Bonds): "Like most heroes, however, the adventurers who freed Phlan did not stay around. It is known that they took a boat from Phlan to the City of Hillsfar across the Moonsea. From there it is rumored that they traveled south and west in search of further adventure." Thus, for lore-based reasons, Hillsfar is grouped within this series.
