If true, that's a shame about Stephen Hand - he did some great adventures. Legend of the Shadow Warriors was one of my favourite FF titles. I was at Sixth Form college when it was released, bought it from a local bookshop during a free period. Distant memories, better days. 'Blood of the Mandrakes' would have evoked such fond memories.

Relatively short, yet highly enjoyable! Interesting to see the juxtaposition of modern day with Fighting Fantasy stats and combat. I enjoyed the references. :)

Finally, the print version of Return to the Pit is available. You can get hardback or softcover versions of this second sequel to Out of the Pit, along with a free PDF, here:

Tales From The Bird Islands Development
I'm busy with other things as well, but chances are that sooner or later I'll be back to this, just to put a bow on it, if nobody else does it before.
What I love of Fighting Fantasy Project is that it always played the slow but sure game.

Bodies In The Docks
I run this gamebook as an RPG adventure various times during these last years, but this time I had a surprise: the players actually asked me a copy of a map of Portsmouth (as it was in the 20s), as it is mentioned in the game.
Fair enough, I thought, and, with the help of internet, I quickly summoned it.
I was greatly surprised to see that the docks in Protsmouth do not go directly into the ocean, but they go into a river that goes into the ocean through some kind of lock (have a look at it: https://maps.francisfrith.com/pop/portsmouth-1919_pop809907.png)
This way the sea born creatures have to queue with all other boats to get access to the docks through the locks!!!
Is this going to spoil all narrative? How can I explain it in a meaningful way?

Bodies In The Docks
I am using this gamebook as a basis for a RPG adventure (it's not the first time), but this time the players asked me a map of Portsmouth as mentioned in the text.
Fair enough, I thought and I found on line a map of Portsmouth dated 1919 (a century ago!) and I was very surprised when I realized the the port (and docks) of Portsmouth isn't directly open to the ocean! They are rather on a river (on the back side of Portsmouth, to make it easy) and that river is connected to the ocean through a key.
I think this may impact the action in this adventure, as the lovecraftian fish-heads will have to queue wit merchant boats outside the key until they are allowed to pass... what do you think?

Sweet subject matter! Rather short and it took a heap of goes to get all the way through, but hugely entertaining

A Knight's Trial
Skull - non-optimum ending reached
I have enjoyed the game but have yet to win. It's very frustrating and after 20 tries I am moving on. Good game but, c'mon, you should make an easier path to slay dragon. After failing a number of times, I can guess the story but it sucks that i can't experience the win. I have tried repeatedly bit to no avail. And not because of bad decision. I have done every decision and still no victory. You have to make it possible for someone to win.

Possible, but getting the right path can be challenging and depends on luck. LUCK, combat skill, and pure luck if your LUCK fails.

Face your fears and oppose authority trying to set you on the right path
Follow clues
If you're unlucky, a gamble might give you a chance at winning

In The Footsteps Of A Hero

Entertaining, and very well written - although way too short (and easily completed) for a true FF gamebook. None the less, reminded me of why I loved FF all those years ago

Bodies In The Docks
Hello, any ideas of how I can manage, converting this gamecock into a RPG adventure, the fact that the docks of Portsmouth are not on the ocean?
I need some help.

The Trial Of Allibor's Tomb

An awesome adventure, that I've just completed (on like my 50th attempt or so). Gripping, brilliantly written and almost as cunningly devious as some of the original FF Gamebooks - like Deathtrap Dungeon. Loved it
