Interesting tribute to House of Hell.

Pravemi was not written as a baddie with a chilling demeanour like the Earl of Drumer was, but then he had different motivations.

I wonder if there is a way of completing it without sacrificing the player character. Oh well, maybe someday I will find out.

@ Jon - It's no spoiler to say that yes, the game can be completed without the player character needing to die.

I enjoyed the book, played it a few times after completing it as I like some of the other passageways.
Was wondering though if the author could email me a map of the house.

Hello Paul,

Glad you enjoyed the adventure. I wrote it years ago, and although I did draw a map at one time, I'm afraid it's long gone. But having played through it a few times, you could easily run through it and construct a map as you go.

Worth a try.
I really enjoyed the book, the writing was brilliant and the house was a great house. I do however have one major criticism...
The true path is far to linear and on many occasions impossible to get back onto if you deviate. Which while making the book difficult and having a true path is all well and good, I really resent the fact that in order to succeed you have to miss out on some of the really good bits of the house.

@ Paul Mc

Hello Paul,

Everything you say is true. There are many paths, characters and encounters in the house that you'll miss on if you stick to the true path. All I can say is that, when I wrote the book, I modeled it after Steve Jackson's House of Hell. The same issues that you were unhappy with in my story are present in his. However, I think it's a matter of taste, because in any gamebook that I read, I enjoy it when there are many interesting encounters off of the true path, for a few reasons:

1) It makes the story well rounded. I think it would be cheating the reader to only put interesting things on the true path and treat the rest of the story as filler.

2) In a gamebook as difficult as House of Hell / Horror, the reader will usually need many attempts to find the true path, therefore, he or she will end up reading through most of off the false paths anyway.

3) Replayability / Immersion. This kind of adds to point number one. One of the things that I enjoyed so much about the original House of Hell is the sense of a real history and storyline behind the book. Sticking to the true, narrow path will enable someone to complete the adventure, but exploring all of the paths leads to a fuller understanding of the stories-behind-the-story. If you actually lived through House of Hell, wouldn't you wonder, as the house went up in flames, about all of the other people who were in the house? About the things you might have found behind other doors? Steve Jackson gives us the opportunity to find out as readers. I tried to flesh out my story in the same way. To me, personally, I feel that I've done a good job as an author when readers tell me that they went back and re-read the other paths, even after completing the adventure successfully, just to see what else was in the house.

It was well written, I really enjoyed the book. I would have liked more options/ways to go back to the right path even if u went on little adventures.

Hi guys,

We liked the game but we thing there must come some more colors, because first we weren't interesting. Because of the empty pages with only words. So, please, give this site some color.

Im trying to map the house but it's not going well. Ive completed the game but i'd love a layout plan of the house.

@ Paul Mc

I'd suggest downloading the printed version of the adventure. Much easier to map when you have the entire story at your fingertips.

Hi, I haven't read many of these online gamebooks and I didn't get very far with yours but it's the best one I've read so far. My only slight issue is that there seem to be too many instances of gaining Fear points, making it in my view just a tad too difficult

Gaetano

@ Hugh

Glad you're enjoying the adventure! There are lots of areas to explore and many deadly areas that will add a lot of fear points, definitely.

The true path, however, will enable any player to successfully complete the adventure, no matter how low their starting skill, stamina, luck or fear scores may be.

Good luck!

A few too many instant deaths means that you need luck, persistence and memorisation to win this one. I liked the old-school feeling, however, and some unresolved mysteries still draw me towards the mansion...

From a mechanistic viewpoint, Fear would be better if it worked similarly to Luck instead of being merely "hit points".

Nice writing felt very Jackson. I'll come back and try again.
Also I'd like to see the unknown assailants stats on the fight screen. How close was I to winning? I'll never know. Coz I'm dead.

Oh and the dice are rigged. at draws are, I lose on a draw ... hmmph
