Almathera The Demo 2 CD

In Amiga Power 32's CD32 section page 99, there's a compilation called 'The Demo 2'. I can't seem to find it anywhere - does it go by a different name? Is it the same as CDPD II or Demo II for CDTV?...

Non-watermarked maps of Speris Legacy

I'm writing about The Speris Legacy, and some unwatermarked maps of the game would be very useful, if they're available. (specifically Ghilliards Rhine)
