Rebels Of The Dark Chasms
I've now got Steven Taylor's gamebook up and running.
Rebels Of The Dark Chasms is a fairly short (150 references) spin-off of Chasms Of Malice in which you play a dwarf rebel attempting to rescue your captured leader, Aspra Smoothcheek.

Can I have the rebels of the dark chasms original document please? Its very good but i'm realy confused about the end of it, is it the real end when you and aspra get cought by gaurds?
You can read spoilers by clicking them three times.
Or by dragging the cursor over them.

Thanks Phil for the way to read spoilers. I have been reading nearly all of them, but its a bit of a shame there are none about Rebels Of The Dark Chasms however i can give some hints about how to get as far as i've got:
1. go the longer rout to the citadel 2. grab the bottle 3. get lucky 4. trade for the magic axe
I think thats what you should do to start with but as I say I havn,t finished it so who knows.
Eliot Ball Sat Dec 11 15:18:06 2004
Eh!? what happened to my nice spoiler? Are you supposed to use angle brackets (<>) not normal ones?
Just test: <s>SPOILER</s>

You need a
at the start, then a
at the end.
I've now added a 'spoiler' button to the form which puts them in for you.

Hints for Rebels of the dark chasm
1. Go longer route 2. get bottle 3. get lucky 4. take lava path 5. save blind creature 6. fight ALONG SIDE the blind creatures 7. keep lantern on 8. trade collar for axe 9. talk to chef 10. find password 11. find bow 12. give lady bottle & bow 13. rest, then take middle path
Eliot Ball Wed Dec 15 13:40:54 2004
Just how do you talk to the chef?
Eliot Ball Wed Dec 15 14:09:45 2004
Aha! I have completed Rebels Of The Dark Chasms (although it was only the origonal document (I cannot talk to the chef in the interactive game)). It is very exiting (although less so at the end). I am now trying to win, Lair Of The Troglodytes wich seems vurtually, impossible (and I thought, Rebels Of The Dark Chasms was hard!).

When you fight ALONG SIDE the gaddon people at the end they talk about a man who works at the citadel and they give a name, then find the chef type his name in.

I've been playing through Rebels of the Dark chasm.
I can rescue Aspera, and revive her using bottle 35, but then I get killed in a noble but rather pointless last stand, any hints as to ho to avoid death would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance.

Did you talk to the chef in the kitchen? Also, did you befriend the Gaddon on your way to the citadel?

Question about REBELS OF THE DARK CHASM
Has anyone ever beat it? I've played through it several times, but even when I give Aspra the potion "35", the orcs come and kill us promptly! How do I prevent this?
Anyone who's beaten it, do tell!

First off, nice site! I'm a newbie here and relatively new to gamebooks.
Now, I'd like to ask something about rebels of the dark chasm:
How do I jump the chasm at the end? I get across, but she falls in. I've tried different paths but I seem to be missing something vital here.
Thanks for any help.

Re: Rebels of the Dark Chasms
I do seem to recall there was some way to jump across the chasm; but just replaying it then, I took the middle path and reached a dead end where I was able to fight the Boss and reach a successful ending.
Rather than taking out the 'Rise of Skarlos' from your title, I would suggest taking out 'the beginning'. Nightmare Castle: Rise of Skarlos is a good title. ( A lot of your stories seem to involve something or other 'rising' :) ) Also, you seem to be writing a lot of gamebooks all at once. How about deciding on an order and then working on them one by one?
Grundius Mon Jun 16 17:56:46 2008
Thanks, now at least I know that
there is a way to jump the chasm and it's not just some kind of "least-bad" end.

In 'Rebels of the Dark Chasms' must you
Cross the lava river to win
duffmeister Thu Oct 16 12:46:13 2008
Okay, this is driving me mad:
In 'Rebels of the Dark Chasms, I successfully heal Aspra and escape through the secret passage, but then there's a 3-way junction, and all three ways lead to death. What am I getting wrong?
