Instructions - Ghastly Ghost of the 5th Dimension

  As the various text files on this disk will tell you, D.A. Brumleve
  has worked with children from several grades to use the Talespin
  Adventure Kit to create some adventure games.  The file needed to
  run these disks, TELLTALE.TOS, is included on this disk.  Two of
  the three adventures, SDI and MOUNTAIN, are also on the disk.
  The tird adventure, MANSION, could not fit, so I included it in
  an ARC format.  It will have to be unARC'd before you can use it.
  Note that it will be about 350K unARC'd.  I think you will be
  be impressed with the excellent job done by both the kids and Mrs.
  Brumleve.  Have fun adventuring!

  Below are some of the file descriptions taken from GEnie.

KID_TALE.TXT
   Teachers, boy/girl scout leaders, recreation directors, and
   parents: We've been using Talespin (the adventure creation program from
   MichTron) with groups of grade school students to create wonderfully
   imaginative programs.  It's easy to do, fun for the kids, educational,
   and -- guess what? -- it makes the kids _think_!  This ASCII file
   describes some of what's involved. Try it with your group.!

MOUNTAIN.TAL
   COLOR ONLY! Requires TELLTALE.TOS to use. This adventure game was
   designed by grade school students, illustrated using Kidpainter
   (from D.A. Brumleve), and programmed with Talespin (from MichTron/
   /MicroDeal).  The game takes you inside a magic mountain where
   you'll have the opportunity to fend off a vicious dragon, pacify
   a giant spider, etc. in your effort to make your way through. Teachers
   and Parents, especially, take note of this fine product _by_ kids.

TELLTALE.TOS
   This is the pd run-time program to run .TAL files generates with
   Talespin, the adventure creator from Michtron.
   (Please note that this program won't do anything on its own.
   You HAVE to have a .TAL file to get any use from it.)

SDI.TAL
   COLOR ONLY! Requires TELLTALE.TOS to be used. This adventure was
   created by students at Leal Elementary School in Urbana IL.
   Stranded on a Desert Island offers you any of ten characters with
   different skills and weaknesses.  Choose a character, then use his
   special qualities to help him get through a series of unpleasant
   tropical experiences and reach the rescue ship.  Graphics designed
   with Kidpainter (from D.A. Brumleve), programmed with Talespin
   (from MichTron/MicroDeal).

Trivia - Ghastly Ghost of the 5th Dimension

Origins
MOUNTAIN.TAL was designed by 8 3rd-5th graders at Creative Discovery School in Champaign, IL,
both facilitated by teacher M.L. Marks. In these programs, each child was responsible for one or more "rooms" in a group-planned scenario.
