The latest new adventure to come to Eamon Remastered is the Temple of the Trolls, a classic adventure by prolific 1980s Eamon author John Nelson. This is a journey into the hidden world of the Northern Trolls in search of the great weaponsmith, Grommick, who can make a powerful weapon for you if you prove yourself worthy.
This adventure contains a well-designed map and some amusing descriptions of artifacts and monsters. It has a good balance of combat and puzzles, so it's recommended for both puzzle fans and hack-n-slashers. The special effects are mostly subtle, but you can have some fun with the new KISS command in this adventure.
One hint: You don't have to fight Ulik the Invincible. Good thing, too. He's a big dude.

Today I'm excited to release the latest new adventure for Eamon Remastered: The Sword of Inari by Matthew Clark. This is a commando mission into a heavily fortified city to recover a powerful magic sword for the Guild of Magicians. It's a small map and mostly a puzzler's adventure; with clever tactics you can escape most of the fighting. Along the way, there's an opportunity to pick up a unique suit of armor.
One minor hint, without spoiling too much. You get some special artifacts at the very beginning of the game. You'll need to use all of them to complete the mission. I'll leave it up to you to figure out how and where to use each one.

It's been a long time coming, but Eamon Remastered is excited to announce two big new features: Saved Games and transferring characters across multiple browsers with Facebook Login!
Since the initial launch of Eamon Remastered a year ago, Eamon Remastered has only supported storing your characters within your browser. Now, with the new Facebook Login feature, you can log in with Facebook across your various computers and browsers. Your characters will be linked to your Facebook account and will be available on other computers and browsers, as long as you log in with the same Facebook account. To log in, just go to the character list page and you will see login instructions.
Also, the most asked for feature from Classic Eamon and Eamon Deluxe has come to Eamon Remastered. You can now save your game at any time during game play by using the SAVE command, and you can restore a saved game using the RESTORE command. There are ten saved game slots, which can each have a short name to remind you of the point in the game where you saved.
If your character dies during an adventure, you will now be prompted to restore a saved game instead of having to start the adventure all over.
Also, during a long adventure, you can save your game and close your browser window. The next time you visit and load the same character, Eamon will see that your character was out on an adventure and will prompt you to restore a saved game.
Note that saved games for the current adventure are deleted when you finish the adventure and return to the main hall. This works the same way that it did in Eamon Deluxe, and is mostly just there to avoid confusion. (Otherwise, if you restored a 3-month-old saved game, you would see a 3-month-old version of your character, and returning to the main hall would overwrite any progress you made since then.)
Give the new features a try, and happy dragon slaying!
