For those with damaged/missing game cds...

I was very excited to find this site (in no small part due to the discovery of a dedicated fan base!). You see, I am a relatively new comer to the Quest for Glory Series (introduced about 5 years ago when a friend encouraged me to buy the anthology), but I recently lost my anthology CD! I hope it is kosher to ask this as a newbie to the forums, but I really had a hankering to play the 4th game again (far and away my favorite)... If no one has the anthology I'd be thrilled just to have Shadows.
I totally understand if this isn't cool coming to a forum and asking for favors from total strangers
I'd gladly answer any questions about the series or me if anything like that is necessary,
And of course I would reimburse any costs associated with it (I'd buy a new one if it weren't so expensive and hard to find!)

It's been a while since I've personally done this, but I know Elsa's done it a few times more recently than I have.
We only ask that you send a private message to either me or Elsa von Spielburg with proof you already own the game. This is generally done in a few ways. One is by taking a photo of yourself holding the game box, CD(s) or manual. Another way to do it is to write a little note with your username on it, and scan the note with the CD or manual (or game box if you feel like fitting it on your scanner! ).
Afterwards, if we feel it's valid proof, we'll most likely send you a compressed archive (.zip or .rar) to an e-mail that can handle it, or will temporarily upload it somewhere for you to get. Or we can have a direct file transfer with Gigatribe, it's a freeware program and you just create a free account to it.
EDIT: Updated the first post with more clarified (and more digitally available) options. 5 years ago, the e-mailing and site-hosting options weren't possible, now they are! Huzzah!
Oh yeah, and don't feel bad about being a 'stranger' on here asking for help. We love helping people be able to play QFG, whether we've known them for years, or just met them!
And since you're new here, you might also want to check out the AGD Interactive remake of QFG2 - in glorious VGA graphics! (I'd suggest you get KQ1 and 2 while you're there too )

You could also mention the IA VGA remake of KQ3 and the eventual release of SQ2 VGA. Also TSL.
