So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

An EGA game which years later had a VGA fan remake, as it was the only Quest for Glory game not to get an official VGA remake.

To do:
Quite a few more unused graphics here and there's that rolling demo too.

Unused Graphics

Unused Pictures

A daytime look of the background where Iblis rises up. This version was never used, as this is shown during nighttime in the actual game. The castle is also part of the image rather than a sprite laid on top of the background.

A scan meant for Raseir. Boxes have been drawn around the pillar and on top of the bridge to indicate layering.

Emir licking the player character, as if he were still a Saurus. Probably would have been used in the ending.

A pose of the paladin meant for the character status screen. It can be seen by using Ctrl+S at the very last moments.

A different HUD. It's less colorful than the one used by the game.

Unused Text

Text section 163 contains this tidbit:

The light shines brightly within you. You have so far managed to walk the narrow line between Honor and Necessity. 
May your deeds continue to shine, and not be dulled by the darkness you will soon encounter.

On the last day in Shapeir when visiting the Adventurer's Guild, Rakeesh will give a customized pep talk to the Hero based on their class. This message should have triggered if their class (global variable 115) was set at 3 (i.e the value for Paladins, a convention upheld in the next games), but at no point in the game proper (barring the ceremony when Rakeesh speaks up, which does trigger the specific checks and the actual class change) does the Hero become a Paladin. From there and the above Paladin character picture for status screen, one can infer there was an intent to give a Paladin initiation ceremony during the game.
