The Cold Heart Of Chaos
I've added Al Sander's gamebook to the site for online play. MS Word and text versions can be found on the downloads page.

whoa!!! new gamebook!! :)
Well, savour it, because it's another short one.

Awwright! New Story! :D

Yo waddup mates?! the new story luks pretty cool, don't it?
Tammy Wed Dec 18 18:36:16 2013
Sheesh, I keep dying at the wolf pack, is there a glitch somewhere?
ben Thu Dec 19 21:16:27 2013
short but sweet

I hate the wolf pack, I am killed by it.
Elizabeth Tue Jan 28 07:06:39 2014
Wow great story! Will there be another?
Probably not, as it's been nearly eight years now. There are other gamebooks by Al Sander around, though. At this site, there is Beggars Of Blacksand which I think is the pick of the bunch. He also won the Windhammer prize in 2008 with Raid On Chateau Fekenstein, and the official site has Deathtrap Overlord, Blacksand Assassin and Assault On The Fortress Of Evil, which I think were all entries to various competitions.

I like the tests of Stamina. There are times in life that neither Skill nor Luck get you through, but rather your ability to just endure without collapsing. Well done.

First try, woo!

Good one, but a bit too few choices.
Gabriel Barros Tue Dec 23 05:11:29 2014
It's short, but really cool and well made, took me two times to complete, well done friend !!!
Yaztromo Tue Dec 23 10:21:29 2014
Basically on this run I just rolled the dice: for SKILL and LUCK first and then for fighting the Snow Wolves...:-(

Amazing, but too short for me ^^ Still, like it! :)

A decent adventure, certainly phsically taxing for the dwarf.

I remember finishing this one previously and finding it not too hard, and sure enough it wasn't that bad, indeed sinse I had good attribute scores it was almost a forgone conclusion, I really wish there had been more choice. More than that though, this really feels either like a prologue or end to a much larger book than something stand alone, plus I confess the similarities in the plot and setting to the absolutely magnificen t Windhammer over on chronicles of arborell were a little on the nose too.
Certainly not bad, but not really enough to say much about.
This was an entry in one of Dave Holt's competitions back in 2004. The brief was that it should "only be a taster of a larger epic quest", which I think explains the way that the final paragraph is worded.

This is NOT Fairly easy, I've not got more than 7 sections in before death on 15 attempts.
Either that, or the dice rolls are Rather unbalanced.
David Brent Sat Jul 2 11:30:59 2016
Good story, well written. Enjoyed this a great deal!
Yaztromo Sat Jul 2 12:48:33 2016
I think that this format of adventure, short and full of action, suits particularly well this way of playing on line.

Enjoyable! And still wondering what the backstory is...
Bob Fri Apr 21 01:57:52 2017
This was short, but it was very cool!
Migo Wed May 10 17:48:39 2017
Short, quite predictable. You'd need to flesh out the story quite a lot to avoid the twist being obvious from the start.
Well, it was fun all the same, and the storytelling was quite good in parts.

Talk about a close shave. I forgot to eat provisions before the final battle and ended at 1 stamina. While the plot was good, and the choices abundant, battles are greatly preferable to tests. The insta-deaths were annoyingly good. A lot depends on getting good initial rolls to survive the wolf attack. Reasonable, and worthwhile if you like small, choice based adventure, but not my cup of tea. Grade: 90

What is the point of the red rose mark?
Alex Fri Dec 8 04:51:23 2017
Not interesting, There is only one path through and if you die every single wrong option then its not fun, basically forced to choose.

didn't last long, should have tried to outrun the avalanche!
