All I want from is pure escapism: an adventure in faraway land on the pirate ship sailing through the wind in the Seven Seas, encountering sea monsters and lost treasures and vengeful ghosts or something that let my coping mechanism have at least more fun time. There feels like there’s a lot going on at all times, and it’s still one of my favorite of the series. The full-page illustrations in the book were accompanied with a caption giving a short extract from the text. Totally loved the atmosphere and setting of Port Blacksand, twists and storyline were really good ones too, and this thrilling rogue-style adventure gave me hours and hours of fun, with a massive deaths count of 10-15 because I tried to finish it without cheating or using easy to find internet solutions and walkthroughs . The book is full of traps and often times there is no way to know which outcome is favorable and which - not.

The paragraphs with a full page illustration were: 1, 31, 62, 88, 115†, 148, 171, 182, 203, 224, 239, 250, 265, 271, 296†, 307, 329, 344, 349 and 385. You are approached by the mayor and asked to go and find a friend of his who lives in the city of Port Blacksand, the city of thieves that the title of the book derives its name. I especially like the illustration of the gate of Port Blacksand near the beginning, and the wonderful image of the Goblin-like Bays playing Bays’ Ball at entry 40. Ian and Steve co-authored The Warlock of Firetop Mountain with Steve Jackson in 1982: the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series has sold over 18 million copies worldwide. We did this book in a 2017 edition that’s part of new series of a selection of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks by Scholastic.There are several paths through Port Blacksand, and as you play and re-play the book, you will meet many charming and bizarre creatures, some of which will help you, others annoy, and many attack you either frontally or with stealth. There are more instant deaths in this one than previous books, but I was able to make it through relatively easily first time.

It seems that the wize old sage Nicodemus knows exactly how to slay Zanzar Bone, so I’ll need to talk with him. and also (79) and (88)) The Serpent Queen's "poisonous fangs" inflict the normal 2 stamina points of injury (though at least in (79) and (88) when she bites you just before the fight she does inflict 1 skill and 4 stamina points of injury). There's a real homogeneity to the various locations in the story, and it's a place that cries out to be mapped so that further adventures build and expand on what's come before.Sure enough, when I got to the bridge, there he was – a gruff old wizard who told me to bugger off because he didn’t want to help me. This reference is newly illustrated, the Puffin/Wizard versions not having an equivalent piece of artwork. We believe in an honest and beautiful approach to design that celebrates utility, timelessness, and traditional methods of hand crafting.
