FF books

Hello all just got back into the reading of books and can remember the years of fun i had with FF rp books(not as boring as the ones that have 500 pages:P) so question is are they still made ? i get a lot of spare time in my current job and it gets verry boring at times so was thinking of getting some again any links tyo book stores would be cool.

Thx

Judger

How can a man refuse an offer like that ....

TBH m8 - I don't actually know where they are.

Check out Amazon if you are feeling rich - or maybe even take a look in the local library ?!?!

Hmmm, I have a few lying around somewhere at my parents house i think;

- Creature of Havoc
- Trial of Champions
- Starship Traveller
- Freeway Fighter
- Return to Firetop Mountain
- Deathtrap Dungeon
- Forest of Doom (I think, you were an elf and a lot of it was dream based and you had to kill Morpheous iirc, might be a different book tho)

If im back at the 'rents house before lan i will try and dig them out for you.

I wrote a housekeeping program for the Sinclair Spectrum for those books. Kept records of what page you were on, calculated the outcome of battles etc. That sort of thing.

You have decided to go west. You find a old man huddled up in a cloak trying to stay out of the way of a group of soldiers, one of the soldiers starts to bully the old man, and soon the whole group is at it and the old man pleads for help, if you wish to assist the old man turn to page 368, if you wish to ignore the man turn to 177

[177]
You turn your back on the old man and the soldiers and carry on down the path, you hear some shouts and cries, as you turn round you see the soldiers disintergrate in a blinding flash, the evil wizard turns to you and cries out that you should die too!
He raises his hands and your adventures ends here.......

[368]
You have to fight off all six soldiers. Thankfully due to the narrow passageway only two of the soldier can attack you at any given time.
Soldier 1 skill 8 stamina 12
Soldier 2 skill 7 stamina 10

Soldier 3 skill 7 stamina 9
Soldier 4 skill 7 stamina 8

Soldier 5 skill 6 stamina 7
Soldier 6 skill 6 stamina 7
You may escape by turning to 368.
If you win the old man looks up at you and smiles,
"yes you have a good sword arm, I may have need of someone likes you"
He shakes you hand and that's the last thing you remember.
You've now become one of the souless minions of the Evil Sourcer Xan,

You adventure ends here, unless you have your finger still wedged in the page where if gave the option to turn east instead of comming down this western street which was a total waste of you time wasn't it....ha ha.....if you wait around there will be some more, pick up random objects and make your character suffer for no reason, just to antagonize you.
You should have kept that map we hinted that you should have made, however we wrote the books so that maps never worked.
We have a flow chart of stuff and ideas that let you run around in circles and pee you off because the architecture, geology make no sense and negates the concept of trying to map it. please keep buying our books.

(favourite story is Rebel Planet, but there are TOO many 50/50 decisions, that just make the book unplayable)

Judge, just so you know. I've got some listed on ebay, and got about 7 to be listed in the near future.

Those "choose your fate" books ruled! I can't remember the FF series of them, but the Goosebumps ones by R L Stein were v. popular at our school.

Sorry, wasn't really pertinent to the thread, but had to say my piece!

I loved the R.L ones.

The Fighting Fantasy ones were better as there were fights and loot and everything to do with RPG's, just on paper.

The authors created Warhammer following that.

If you've never tried them and want to be nostalgic - http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQfgtpZ...ssZmadeline8695

Adding the rest in two days.
