I’m a big fan of Avalon Hill Microcomputer Games and have nearly all of these titles in my game collection. Lords of Karma can’t be 1978 given one primary fact. Avalon Hill in context to computer games first presented offerings to the public for sale at the Origins Gaming Convention on June 27–29 1980 at Chester, Pennsylvania. The first titles to be sold were B-1 Nuclear Bomber, Midway Campaign, North Atlantic Convoy Raider, Nukewar and Planet Miners. The target computer platforms for these original software titles were TRS-80, Apple and Commodore PET. In 1981 Avalon Hill’s Microcomputer Games division released Computer Acquire, Conflict 2500, Computer Major League Baseball, Computer Football Strategy, Empire of the Over-mind, Lords of Karma, Tanktics and Stocks & Bonds. If sources are needed I can provide jpg’s of Avalon Hill game catalogs or point to source references at the Internet Archive.org

Hi,
very interesting!
My original source is Bedrosian himself (you can check his notes if you click his name in the game entry).
If anything, he wrote the game in 1978 and it wasn't released until later. The game must be from 1980 rather than 1981, though:
