QuarterstaffRole: Quality Assurance Lead, Manual
By: Scott Schmitz and Ken Updike

Unlike every preceding Infocom title, Quarterstaff was developed externally and published by Infocom. As QA and the developers were not colocated, this was a different departure from the Infocom norm. Working closely with the developers, I was the sole tester on this very large D&D style game where the player has the use and individual control of several characters in a party. Possible paths were myriad and automated testing or test suites were non-existent. Having a strong background in writing, I also wrote the manual for this game and performed customer support.
