The earliest sketches for Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb come from late 1991, which is only a few months after The Dreamers Guild Inc., the original game's developers, incorporated. This drawing of a male Elk by Lisa Sample (then Lisa Iennaco) was faxed to the Guild on October 20, 1991. The sheet also included a female Elk that will be posted later.
Please excuse the quality of this scan — it's from a photocopy of the original fax which has gone missing.
