It's the only place that sells wine. I have some vague memory of something/someone mentioning to go to a wine cellar?

Yep. Somewhere someone tells you where to go, but I have no idea who.

I think it's written in one of the houses. One of those old-school RPG things. 1 plot hook or FU.

Yeah. Btw, the secret to the next dungeon is hidden in the first dungeon, Gordon.

Fired up Bard's Tale again for the first time in about a month. Needed a break from editing.

Apparently there was a patch. Combat goes really fast now, and you get little flags in your party list when one of them can level up, or get new spells. Those are the only changes I noticed, so far.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

If I'm playing through Steam, if I normally play on my PC, and then I launch it on the laptop, is my saved game available on the other system?

I probably could have installed and found out for myself in the time it took me to type all this out.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I thought Steam synch'd saves? But I only have Steam on 1 PC.

I think I can "stream" from the PC. Haven't done it yet. Will try later.

They do for some games, but not others...?

Shit. Now I need to know. I could start doing the idle games I play at work at home.

I attempted to.stream to the laptop, but then it said I had to install a driver on the PC, and I didn't feel like going back to the basement. Will later.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Streaming is slightly flakey, but functional on a turn-based game like this. Things got out of sync once, and I was barely able to save it. SOmetmes graphics were a little choppy, like a bandwidth bottleneck. That sort of thing.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.
