This Fighting Fantasy volume was the first in the long-awaited Advanced Fighting Fantasy (or AFF) series building upon the foundations laid in the Fighting Fantasy™: Introductory RPG by Steve Jackson.
The introductory book is aimed at the novice role-player who is also a fan of the Gamebook series and introduces the basic rules of the AFF system, including the introduction of Special Skills that a player can specialise in (such as Climb or Magic Lore), more detailed damage tables during combat, spells and an Oops! table for spells that are miscast, and a detailed guide to running an AFF game specifically focusing on dungeon adventures.
Also in the book are two adventures. The first AFF adventure entitled “Tower of the Sorcerer” is a small, basic dungeon crawl which presents a easy introduction to the rules. The second adventure “Revenge of the Sorcerer" is far longer and offers the opportunity to explore Port Blacksand and the sewers beneath.
