The Warlock struck lucky on Saturday. On one of his adventures hunting down the tomes of Jackson and Livingstone he managed to locate no less than 38 books in his haul. It is rare to achieve such a feat especially since a few rare gems were discovered. In particular, Allansia, that is much sought after amongst fellow adventurers and treasure collectors. Amongst them were books of another world by a fellow teller of stories but it would be remiss of me to mention the author here out of respect and loyalty to this brand. Nonetheless, these books and some of the original Fighting Fantasy books will become available to the marketplace once the inventory has been completed in pursuit of the ultimate collection.

News has reached the Warlock that Pure Evil Miniatures are planning to release up to 20 figurines using Kickstarter later this year. The first time they appeared without announcement was last year at the Fighting Fantasy Fest. Only 7 were planned but it seems that greater plans are afoot. Those we know about are Shape Changer, Lizard King and Panther, Bloodbeast (below), Creature of Havoc, Zanbar Bone, Brain Flayer and Zagor the Warlock. The others are unknown at this stage and we will bring news of those when we can.

New to Fighting Fantasy? Then read on.......
Having read comments on Facebook recently it occurs to us that readers new to Fighting Fantasy do not fully realise the history behind the books and a lot of you do not appreciate the first book, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, was published over 30 years ago in 1982. Some only know about the two Icon/Wizard series published in recent years and do not know about the classic 'green spine' that many original fans so fondly hold in their memories and collections.
So, to bring everyone up to speed it is time you read the Fighting Fantasy guide no fan should be without. Those old enough to remember will know about these books and die hard collectors will have read the guide already to keep track of their collections. You might be surprised when you read the guide as there is so much more to catch up on. For example, of the 29 titles, only 24 of those were from the original 59 Gamebooks issued. 5 titles were new, making it a grand total of 64. That means if you thought you have read them all, then think again. But be warned as they are out print, they are hard to find and you will have to explore the four corners of the globe to get your hands on them.
To help you on your quest The Warlock has written a guide which not only contains reference to the Gamebooks but information on other tie-in books and collectables for your enjoyment. Good Luck.

Last week I posted about the Fighting Fantasy D20 System by Greywood Publishing whom will also bring us Fighting Fantasy Quest later this year. If you are not content with this original format, completed the paperback Gamebooks or attempted the apps then try something different and try the new Advanced Fighting Fantasy system as adapted by Arion Games.

Trolltooth Wars is happening!
Well done to PJ Montgomery for setting this up and to the 356 backers for making it a reality by pledging £15,472 above the target of £14,500 which ended this morning. But the hard work begins now to bring the project to life. It never nearly happened as only a few days before the project was a several thousand pound short but fans dug deep, whether in response to the social media frenzy, reminder e-mail or pay day they managed to make it happen. Join fan, Lin Liren, in celebrating this by watching his victory video he posted to the Kickstarter page.
