The Tavern received an email from a Moonstone fan named Doodah regarding a song he’s written as a tribute to the game. Here’s what he had to say…
First I want to applaud your site – a shrine to one of the best games that ever existed! I remember days, nights, weeks, months just playing Moonstone on my Amiga with my Cheetah joystick…… In my life I have strived to play as many games as possible, but I still see Moonstone as one of the BEST. As a result of my love for the game which I still play via Dosbox, a few pals and I wrote this song in memory and dedication of Moonstone. It is not truly complete yet, since we’re planning more verses – but will it ever be finished? I have attached the mp3 to this email, I just thought you might want to hear it! Hopefully you will like it, Doodah.
Listen to the song below. You can definitely see the guys are influenced by Led Zeppelin – it’s like a cross between Immigrant Song and Stairway to Heaven.

Moonstone ASCII Art
Brilliant piece of ASCII art I found whilst trawling on Google’s Usenet Archive for Moonstone-related material. I believe the author is Marcin Gliñski.
