I'm playing the same version of Wizardry 1 on the Mini vMac emulator and ran into the same issue with copy protection on the Wizardry_3 disk image. When you first enter the Maze, you get this message:
An apparition appears and says:
"Enter the magic
word to continue."
This is followed by a random spell. Here are a few examples of the random spells that are displayed.
SPELL: KANA ANTO ????
SPELL: KATE USAN ????
SPELL: KIAN INIS ????
I have posted a screenshot here:
It's true that the Wizardry_4 disk image allows you to get past this by just entering four lowercase letter o's. I'm just surprised that with all the material posted online for Wizardry, I haven't been able to find the magic words for Wizardry 1 anywhere online (or for that matter, anything below Wizardry 6). The rest of the contents of the box (player's manual, mapping graph sheets, registration card) are posted, but not the magic word list.
Does anyone have this information or know where it is posted online? While there are cracked versions of Wizardry 1 available, it would be nice to have the magic word list documented somewhere for nostalgia's and completeness' sake.
