A Knight's Trial

The dragon burnt me! :-)
The (suspected) background story is interesting, but for the rest it's a dungeon crawl a bit too similar to other dungeon crawls (Zombies, torture chambers, iron maidens, crazy people looking forward to PLAY with you, centipedes, mazes, mnotaurs)... maybe there's something more interesting after the point that I reached insofar...

I forgot to mention that I appreciated the fact that you start with fixed initial values, that were often a problem for FF gamebooks, that were often too difficult to complee with low (random) stats.
This gamebook is quite difficult to complete as well, but at lest you can't blame your initial rolls...

Just as I remember the books in the 80's, always failing but good for while.
Nice one

Sweet story.

This game was great, I played 2 times and didn't win anytime, but it felt great reading along about such a story!

Alright I played through and sort of got the underlying message the first time around. I'm guessing the "iron maiden" with the gag in it is part of this?
Also I struggled with this, so looked about a little. I found the shield and the sword once but I never even found a mention of a ruby necklace. Any help?

I don't really like it. It doesn't feel medieva enough to me. It seems like they just picked some random guy and put him on the quest.

I managed to get past the black knight uptil the dragon, then the flames it blew were absorbed by the ruby amulet. But i couldnt get any further! Any idea which item or something i didnt do?

Sun Oct 5 13:18:42 2014
I absolutely loved this. I think that the backstory becomes pretty clear throughout the game, particularly as you start leaving hints so early (like Merlin's "beard"). I would love to see this fleshed out into a longer game with a more detailed story. Thanks!

Thanks for spending the time to do this but I did the most honorable things and still got fucked!?

Definitely very cool to play next to Lancelot. I died and must retry however. When you reach the stone statue room, do this:

A centipede is not an insect it is a Myriapod.

??? Um, ok. That was good. The subtle hints towards the ending, and the downright reveal when you lose, is incredibly clever. The plot was good, as were the battles and choices. Needing to get the two specific items was slightly irksome, although it did force me to explore everywhere, which was good.

'Slightly irksome'. If I'd done that my gamebook would have been ungraded. 'Exploring' is part of the gamebook, after all. Ian Livingstone's style has something like eight or nine essential items to find, Deathtrap Dungeon for example - considered an FF classic.

Wed Jun 20 12:21:56 2018
i tried forever but i couldnt get all 3 items.

You need a modicum of luck to succeed, or be willing to take a gamble and win.

Traditionally, the depths of a dungeon are to the north - don't go deep before you must.

Courage is a virtue.

If you played many times, avoiding things that automatically hurt you makes the combats easier and just costs you hints you've read in previous passes.

And then things get spoilery.
