I would be very eager to get any and all of what you have!  Unfortunately, 
all of my Apple stuff is packed away in storage and would be very difficult 
to get at, let alone set up and use.  I was intending to sell my Apple with 
the software, but I got cold feet and never did.  Even if I could get at my 
stuff, I don't have the space to set things up and I don't see how I could 
get new drives.  Besides, I don't really have the patience.  I am sure 
someone else here would be willing to transfer your disks if you don't want 
to for some reason.  I've been in touch with the Eamon people over the years 
and I'm pretty sure they don't know anything about these apparently lost 
Eamons that you have.  I know I've never heard of the title you mentioned.

Just to be clear, since the Eamon system is in the public domain and has 
always been available for anyone to use, I don't think there are such things 
as pirated games.  The designer disks were easily available from a number of 
places.  That's one of the things that makes Eamon so interesting to me. 
It's probably the oldest freely available text adventure design system out 
there for the masses.  I would even be willing to pay you a reasonable 
amount for your time in getting your disks transferred.  Where did you get them?
