The Zork Compendium is mainly broken down into three sections: The History of Zork (approximately a 300 page document detailing the entire history of Zork from its creation at the hands of Eru to its end, using all available sources [especially Nino Ruffini's unpublished "History of Quendor"] and trying to remain as faithful as possible to these sources), an incredibly expanded and detailed Encyclopedia Frobozzica complete with as many illustrations as could be found, and a map section (special entries and material from Lurking Horror are denoted by either Red Text or Red Background, since this is a deutro-canonical source).
The Zork Compendium is a current work-in-progress. Update/things needed to be done:
While I have spent many hours hunting down rare Zork documents (see sources), I am desperately looking to acquire more resources, especially the ZGI design documents and node maps, and any design artwork or maps for any of the games. I plan to upload all the rare documents in the future, once the full compendium is finished.
Please report spelling/grammer typos (there are probably many still) and suggestions, as well as if you have any material from my want list (see sources) to: [email protected] (there is an underscore "_" between "lord" and "skylark")
There is absolutely no charge to view this website, however, I have
made an option for freewill donations. One should not feel obligated to
donate, or guilty if they do not donate as I am happy to provide this
as a resource both for the Zork community and those who wish to
continue advancing the Zork franchise (although the resale of this material is forbidden).
