• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A trilogy of text adventure games written by Steve Meretzky in the early 1990s, published by Legend Entertainment. Legend used some of the tools of the day to spice up the traditional text format, including a graphics mode and some light sound effects and music via Real Sound. They are adult in theme but relatively tasteful in that regard, and the primary aim is providing biting humor and brain-tickling puzzles.

The games chronicle the adventures of Ernie Eaglebeak, an aspiring young wizard attending classes at Sorcerer University. While Ernie spends the three games embarking on wild adventures and bedding a considerable number of beautiful women, he is consistently viewed as a total dork by almost everyone around him. Just go with it.

Each game features inevitable encounters with Ernie's lifelong crush Lola Tigerbelly; quasi-mentor Otto Tickingclock and his young wife, Hillary, and Ernie's evil stepfather and arch-nemesis, Joey Rottenwood.

The three games are:

  1. Spellcasting 101: Sorcerers Get All the Girls (1990)
  2. Spellcasting 201: The Sorcerer's Appliance (1991)
  3. Spellcasting 301: Spring Break (1992)

A fourth entry, The Graduation Ball, was planned but never published.

Tropes used in Spellcasting (series) include:
