They're... completely different? I hear no exact similarity.

Take a Mario sprite, recolor it, transplant boots from Sonic sprite. Voila! You made completely different sprite. No exact similarity. :lol:

Better yet. Take Microsoft Windows source code, rename every variable there, add the Linux's Tux logo. Now you've made a completely different innovative OS!

Betrayal at Krondor, according to this Wikipedia page, was first released in 1993. Needless to say, Still Another Wanderer was made later than it. So, I can't see how they could possibly have plagiarized it - perhaps by using a time travel machine, going forward to 2006, downloading it on some floppy disks and going back to 1993? :P
Unless you mean that Wanderer is a ripoff of the other track, in which case I must agree with zookeeper.
Anyway, since the situation has been cleared, until further proofs are supplied I'm locking this thread.
