Latest News - 27th April 2011

Welcome Adventurers, this week we received an email from Kevin Mullen who explained that in 1982 like many of our fans he discovered a book, a remarkable, clever, scary, original book that he fell in love with. He explained he had seen it in the school library book club and saved for it until the day it was his. That book was The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and it began his love affair with Fighting Fantasy that has stayed with him ever since. (Sound familiar?)

He has played the books to death but has started replaying them on his Iphone where they have been reinvented and updated. Now as a graphic designer, he has started to revisit his childhood. Take a look at his artwork created for the Gallery. We hope you enjoy it as much as he did in creating it. Ed

Also today we have a new online AMATEUR ADVENTURE Below Zero Point by Robert Douglas for you to download. Robert originally thought about writing this in the mid-90's, under the working title of 'The Globesphere Case' - which he thought was a silly name, but wanted it to sound as like a detective story. Later he changed it to the more ambiguous 'Below Zero Point'. Check it out in the Amateur Adventures area and then let the authors know what you think in the amateur Gamebooks comments blog.

Send us your Fighting Fantasy drawings and illustrations using the preferred format of email at mail@fightingfantasy.com or the usual address:

...Only a week ago the Globesphere made disconcerting news. The device wasn’t in government or military possession at the time, so it hit community tabloids like a kiloton train at full speed. Details regarding the Globesphere were sketchy, but New Scientist made an educated speculation surrounding its sonorous name: it had to be a doomsday weapon of some kind. Coupled with Von Rhine’s employment background with weapons research, and sprinkled with alarmingly high casualty reports from the Hippsteen War, it was the only hunch that made sense. The Federal government, realising they couldn’t keep a lid on the situation, let tabloid bloodhounds loose in an attempt to unnerve those responsible. The terrorists laid low, the stratagem backfired. Matters were beginning to escalate, and officials, now apprehensive of full-scale panic, sought other, more subtle means to recover the doomsday device before terrorists could implement its awful vengeance. Sending a detachment of troops would be too heavy-handed for such a difficult problem - so they got in touch with the PIB...

Not wishing to stay in this laboratory of horrors, you make for the exit without further delay. The door is thankfully unlocked and slides open to allow you into another corridor. There are many doors flanking you on either side, spaced at regular intervals. Doubtless leading into more laboratories. After a few moments, you encounter a white-haired man, dressed in a smock and clutching a com-fax in one gnarled hand. His piercing stare regards you with some intimidation. Two security guards stride in his wake: both clad in purple lacquered armour, and fingering volt sticks - a type of stun weapon. They have emerged from one of the nearby rooms. You curse at having being discovered so early since infiltrating the asteroid base.

“Who are you?” he snaps, deeply suspicious. “I haven’t seen you around here before. Do you realise this is a restricted area? Have you authorization? Speak up!”

The two hulking bodyguards begin to tense up, glaring at you, silently demanding an instant reply. What can you do here? If you have a brooch with a sailing ship emblem, deduct 196 from the number noted alongside it. Otherwise, there’s no other option than to take your chances by turning to 312.
