Frequently Asked Questions



Are there going to be any more additions to the site?
Maybe. If so they will be announced on the guestbook and via Twitter and the RSS feed.


I've written a gamebook, will you put it on the site?
So long as it is complete, I will certainly put it on the Downloads page. Whether I make an online version depends on several factors : how good it is (in my opinion) - it needs to be at least as good as those already there, how close the rules are to Fighting Fantasy, and how much free time I have. All submissions are welcome and can be emailed to me using the contact link.


Are you planning on converting any of the published Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks?
This could only happen if the writers gave me permission and provided me with electronic copies. As that would amount to giving their books away for free, and they are still trying to sell them, I can't see that they would be interested.


Can the gamebooks be downloaded and played offline?
No, the software was specifically designed for online play, to run on a web server. Reworking it to run on a PC wouldn't be a straightforward activity. Thanks to the rise of broadband the demand for this is greatly diminished now.


Why can't I use LUCK in combat?
Because I didn't implement it. There were several reasons for this: I never invoked this rule myself when playing the gamebooks, I couldn't think of a good way of incorporating it in the user interface, and it has virtually no bearing on the outcome of the vast majority of fights. Currently, I have no interest in adding the feature, so any time I have available to spend on the site simply isn't going to be used for this purpose.


Why aren't there more pictures?
It would be nice to have more. Initially I tried to find illustrations from the original gamebooks to match the text, but this is a tiresome process and I got fed up of it fairly quickly. Also, although I realise the site isn't squeaky-clean in this repect as it stands, I don't really like to use artwork without permission. The ideal would be contributions from amateur artists, but I think it needs to be of a comparable standard to the artwork in the published FF gamebooks in order to live up to the quality of the writing.


Will there be a sequel to Bodies In The Docks?
I suspect not, due to the amount of time that has passed without a sequel appearing, but there is at least an outside chance. Apparently, The Strange Case Of The Bodies In The Docks (I shortened the name for the website because it made the menu look untidy) was intended to be the first in a series of three Lovecraft-inspired gamebooks. Simon has at least made a start on the second, but that's as far as I know. Anyone who wants more up-to-date information on its progress should get in touch with him via his website.


Will there be a sequel to Outsider?
Possibly. In 2014 Gavin Mitchell indicated that he was planning a sequel, entitled New Day Rising, and in 2016 began work on it in earnest. Previous rumours probably referred to a tenuously related work, Afterlife, that he began and abandoned not long after writing Outsider!


Can I have the source code?
No.
