the most creative attempt to prevent gaming piracy. These Paper wheels came with the purchase of Gamefest Forgotten Realms Classics,a bundled collection of RPG games from SSI (“Strategic simulations Inc”)

of the games, you are requested to enter codes to complete the installation process. The in game screen will direct you to some of the runic symbols.
