Multi-Char Old School RPGs?

Looking for old school RPGs like Might and Magic or Bard's Tale where you have multiple character party and turn based combat. There must be games like this out there that I have missed, right?

That looks exactly like what I was looking for Gabrien. Getting the lite version now. Thanks!

DragonBane II
Princess Demelza

These are crusty old PalmOS apps that play exactly like The Bards Tale II.

Seconding Undercroft

Also look at The Quest. Truly epic game, but plays much differently than Bard's Tale because you are John Rambo, the one man army! Well - not quite, but it feels like that sometimes.

EDIT: Looks like Akalabeth just came out, complete with Apple II looking keys. Predates Bards Tale quite a bit, also single-character.
