Liking it so far, but I get the impression I might need to be a bit more careful.

For Robert Douglas;

Was this intended to be a demo/quick adventure?

I presume you mean Alec Worley rather than Robert Douglas.

None of the gamebooks are 'demos', whatever that means, but they are all different sizes. For example, The Diamond Key has 1000 references, Garden Of Bones has 50. If you want to know how big a gamebook is before you play it, you can look here. You know that you have reached the best ending if you get a "CONGRATULATIONS / You have completed..." message - which, in this case, you will have done.

@ Carl,

Sorry, I'm not the author of Garden of Bones. I did actually give it a try a good while ago, got killed very early on. It's very well written with some good ideas.

I really like this story, and the fact that it has

The thing is: the final battle is too difficult, and there is no way to weaken the "boss", so very often players will get stuck there.

i think you should put a checkpoint into each of these stories it sucks having to restart every single time. im not going to restart. in fact i think im done reading these stories. dont get me wrong they are great but once again the time it takes me to read it all and then go back to the same place i was at. its unbearable.

@ Chase,

I can understand your frustration, however you can actually 'bookmark' your progress within an online gamebook on FF Project. It's similar to manual saving in video games. Bear in mind that saving at a particular point wouldn't guarantee success as the player might have missed a vital item, note, or choice further back. Paperback gamebooks were no less different as regards restarting from the beginning and determining the correct path - not to mention favourable scores and lucky die rolls make a difference. Many veteran fans would certainly remember the many hours spent in finally achieving success. But then, persisting to overcome a difficult challenge is a huge part of the gamebook idea; some fans have complained in the past that some adventures were too easy! Jonathan Green's 'Knights of Doom' is one example of hard difficulty, yet the in-depth writing, world atmosphere, and brilliant illustrations are entertaining enough to play through at least several times. Sometimes death entries in themselves were very memorable and ingenious (featured in all FF titles).

Seems odd that there is apparently no way to help the girl AND find the mandatory items required to complete the adventure.

Still, I've played the hell out of this, so I can't knock it too much. I just wish there was a bit more of it!

A good quick game. I literally completed this during school out of boredom, without maping. It was good. Quality plot, skilled execution, and variety of choices in how to win. I'm hoping I missed a insta-death near the end, because those are always a nice touch. Very good though.
