It seems the links to the tributes on WOS have not been converted over, and now link to nonexistent pages. For example, see Ian Weatherburn. Additionally, only an archive of his Wikipedia page (which is linked to from ZXDB) can be viewed, since it has now been deleted.

I'm wondering about "Z80 CODE D.C.P. Z80". None of the DCP currently on SC seems to be a proper match, so, perhaps it is the abbreviation of a development group?

The credits seem to have ocr issues - see the pdf at https://cpcrulez.fr/GamesTest/elven_warrior.htm which shows:
Z80 CODE B.C.P.
Which is probably Bizarre Computer Productions as the menu scrolly shows and who the entire team are already attributed to.

The typed instructions also attribute 'C64 CODE & GRAPHICS' to 'SONIC GRAFFITI', where they were attributed to 'DUNCAN KERSHAW' in the original instructions (and the credit for 'C64 MUSIC PLAYER' is missing).

Oh! Right! Excellent, I was checking other sources (many of them with the same exact error), but I missed the PDF.
