Sorcerian's website has been completed, and it gives a breakdown of how it's leaderboard system works. I'd never heard of a global leaderboard for an offline RPG before, and the way this works is very interesting.
The Sorcerian User Ranking is now posted to the Victor Interactive Software website! The faster you clear the game, and the lower the level of the characters in your party at the time of clearing the game, the higher your rank will be! You can enter it online, so please feel free to apply.
With further information on the site it seems to work this way;
COMPLETE THE GAME: once complete the game will issue you a Password
LOGGING IN: enter the homepage/browser and register your email address with Sorcerian servers. Once verified, login using your Username and Password (not the one given by the game).
RANKING: Enter the Password given to you by your copy of Sorcerian on completion of the game
LEADERBOARDS: Check the leaderboards after a few minutes to see your position in the rankings.
This is a fascinating system, and I wonder how easy/difficult it would be to revive it. Either way, here's some stills of the site's pages, including some rebuilt art assets that the site was missing.
