For all discussion on all the previous The Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980's games (The Bard's Tale II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous The Bard's Tale ARPG (2004) spin off.

So now that we have fresh talent looking at the remasters, what are the chances of getting them to knock up a short (15 or 20 minute) BT IV prologue adventure in their classic, original style engine?
If they could do that and release it say a week before BTIV's release it would ramp up the hype, add a little backstory and serve as a transition between the old and new styles.

It sounds neat... in theory, but the games are far too different IMO. A transition between them would be akin to modding a Fallout 2 side-quest that foreshadows the events of FO3. All that would come of it, is to see how it should have been done in the sequel.
I would prefer that they spend their time doing final 'check & polish' on the re-master until it's released.

Feasibility aside (I don’t know a lot about game development), I think this is a great idea!
