The legendary Warhammer of Stonebridge lies lost and broken in the treacherous wilderness of Darkwood Forest Without it the Dwarves of. The Forest of DoomYou take the wrong path you o to a certain number of set events and avoid the others What it comes down to is working out which events you need to pass through to complete the adventure Further this adventure does not have numbers hidden in the text that you need to find to complete it as was the case in the first book It makes it easier to cheat namely because I could not find the case in the first book It makes it easier to cheat in the first book It makes it easier to cheat because I could not find silver key since you don t have to dig through the whole book looking for a specific number I loved these books when I was younger and I wanted to see if I STILL FOUND THEM ENJOYABLE SO still found them enjoyable so picked this up and dove in The writing may not be the most impresssive and there are fantasy clich s all over the place but I had so much fun The rpg mechanics and sense of adventure are absorbing and well executed This book might not be for everyone but for me the sense of nostalga and simple effective fun made this a fantastic experience I had a little craving to read some of those old school fighting fantasy books that I used to read and cheat at when I was a kid So I found an app that did the some of the books unfortunately not the ones with Steve Jackson which were the best so I could reread the books and relive the action and couldn t cheat lolBecause these are not your traditional novel they re a little harder to compare to a classic story but I really enjoyed the reading and the action The writing is fairly basic but they do a ood job of creating enough background and character info that you can et embroiled in the action easily enough Vivid memories of this one It was 1991 I was 10 years old and my parents just bought me a copy of this book They went into a arden centre It was raining I decided to stay in the car I had this book a pencil a couple of dice yes I was a nerd I ended up being lost in another world Roaming strange forest paths encountering weird beasts occasionally etting killed and trying again Then there was the cheating what kid wouldn t at that age I totally forgot where I was that afternoon and I loved that feeling of being transported into another worldFond memories indeedNB I ve since played this adventure twice as an adult and it s held up remarkably well both times The first time we made it to Stonebridge but missed the hammer parts so our adventure ended in disappointment The second time we located one of the hammer parts but fell foul of an unending parade of strength sapping creatures and eventually the evil machinations of a fire demon Tremendous fun After playing the latest Fighting Fantasy release The Gates of Death and really enjoying it I decided to revisit one of the classic early titles an The first FF that I have completed Ok so I didn t find the two parts of the hammer but I lied and said I did in order to et to 400 for the first timeI found the forest setting to be pretty similar to the previous dungeon type settings although this story was probably the most enjoyable of the three so far Whilst magic was not there at the outset in this one for all wants and purposes it was as you could purchase spells almost immediatelyOverall I enjoyed this the most of the three titles so far but still not as ood I remembe.

Rd of the Fighting Fantasy books and Livingstone has one back to the style that was used in Warlock of Firetop Mountain meaning that the adventure is a lot mappable than was Citadel of Chaos Further the uest is somewhat less morally ambiguous than the previous two the first being a simple break and enter the second being an assassination namely you are looking for two pieces of a artifact that has been lost and then returning it to the rightful owners for whatever reason In this adventure your character seems to a little experienced than the wet behind the ears characters That You Played In The you played in the two In a way it is a little believable but then again all adventurers need to start OFF SOMEWHERE HOWEVER DESPITE HAVING SOME EXPERIENCE UNDER YOUR somewhere However despite having some experience under your you do begin with the bare minimum of euipment a sword some food a potion and some leather armour The other noticeable thing is that it is implied that you are a hunter used to the wilds so I uess this type of character is suitable to an adventure like Forest of Doom where you are exploring a dark and nasty forest The adventure begins with you meeting a dwarf that is dying who reuests that you finish the uest that he is unable to complete You then travel to the forest and meet up with the wizard that lives in a tower at its edge It is here that you can select a number of magic items to help you in your uest This seemed a little like Citadel of Chaos where you selected the spells that you think you need to successfully complete the adventure Like the spells in the earlier book the magic items can only be used once and really only where the option to use them are The Sorcerer's Apprentice given That is understandable as there are a number of limitations with aame book but remember that these were released in the days before computer roleplaying Eagle's Gate games really became popular and computers were still only in the homes of theeeks After reading the third book I have noticed that the style is becoming a little mature and easier to map The way it works is that initially after the Wizard s Tower you follow a network of paths and each of the paths end up heading north The map has four ways to travel north and at certain points you to jump from one northward path to another However is only one true path through the book and you must travel along that one true path to succeed The adventure is also set as a series of events and if you put that into your mind it makes it easier to navigate and to complete and each of the events has a number of ways to pass through though in some cases you can avoid it completely The way I mapped it was to have a circle where the event begins but not to put all options into the event only the choice to move on to the next event That way if you end up World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi going along the wrong path you can jump back to where you believe the wrong decision was made and move on in the other direction It is different to Citadel of Chaos where by making certain choices in that adventure you couldo through a lot events than otherwise and the events you pass through the easier it was to complete the adventure This is not the case here because there are set paths that lead to set events and as such if. Stonebridge are doomedOnly the foolhardy would enter the murky depths of Darkwood But your uest will lead you into the very heart of. ,
