'Missing' Fighting Fantasy titles re-discovered

When the Fighting Fantasy phenomenon was at its height during the 1980s it was big enough to support its own magazine, entitled Warlock. One of the highlights was a mini version of the gamebooks that had spawned the magazine, usually running to 200 paragraphs. The third issue of the publication included the short Fighting Fantasy adventure story The House of Hell by Steve Jackson, which was later expanded into a full gamebook.

Some enterprising soul has gathered together a number of these adventures and produced PDFs of them as if they were old-style Fighting Fantasy gamebooks as published by Puffin Books back in the day.

If you log on to the Yahoo! group Rebuilding Titan and join, you too can download these 'missing' adventures. They are The Dervish Stone - which also includes the mini adventures Dungeon of Justice and The Dark Chronicles of Anakendis - and Dark Usurper - which also includes Deadline to Destruction and The Temple of the Pharaoh.

I'm not entirely sure what the copyright issues or legal ramifications might be surrounding these creations so enjoy them while you can.

These .pdfs are now no longer available, being deleted after just a short life-span of a month. They will most likely not be posted again.
