Description

Beyond lies the most fearsome adventure of them all – the tower stronghold of the infamous Zanbar Bone! City of thieves is another great story by ian Livingstone where the reader decides the ending by picking hich page to turn to, it is a bit like a computer game i a book but much ore fun for children to read than stick withese eyes attached to a computer screen. A different setting - this volume takes place in a town, which is a welcome change from the dungeon-crawling of the early FF books. All in all though,not really upset,I mean how could you be with such a great Gamebook as City of Thieves.

It seems that the wize old sage Nicodemus knows exactly how to slay Zanzar Bone, so I’ll need to talk with him. There is fighting violence, but I would be comfortable letting any of my fifth graders try the series.Not feeling especially in the mood to cater to this kind of insanity, I gave them the iron spike that I’d bought from the market to play with. Arbitrary choices abound and I was a bit gutted to be presented with a truly tiny and pedestrian 'Congratulations' paragraph once I finally did slay the notorious Zanbar Bone. And it was so easy to obtain, I didn’t need to kill any trolls or solve any puzzles, I just had to ask for it. I liked the design of the book better - discovering the city, in general, was a lot more interesting than what the previous entry offered. Curious as to what might happen if I went into the other room of the ship, I found that someone had poured themselves a nice hot bath.

This Scholastic reprint features newly commissioned illustrations and a gold cover and spine - truly lovely on the shelf. Trading spells and chasing Balthus Dire round his office, or that wily red dragon at the end of Talisman of Death - now those are satisfying boss fights. If only we’d found the black pearl and gotten the tattoo of a white unicorn in a yellow sun before climbing over the city walls! No, this was just a madman who wanted me to swallow what could be poison – and I had no guarantee that they weren’t ALL poison.I guess it is reflective of our desire to see and compartmentalise the world into black and white as opposed to the shade of grey that exists in. There were no changes to the actual systems in use and everything remained quite simplistic although still highly enjoyable. My son is not a keen reader, but he actually looks forward to going to bed at night to read this book, which is unheard of! This one started off very well - there's a lot of locations to explore within the city as you try to find the wizard Nicodemus, who will tell you what you need to do and find to kill Zanbar Bone.

Furthermore, all pre-generated characters start with 6 Meals of Provisions, while a player-generated character would start with 10. To a culture that sees a corpse as nothing more than a diseased shell to be destroyed, with the spirit being disconnected from it, then maybe it is not. Deciding that it’d be a good idea to head to the market district, I took a path leading through some narrow alleys, and was attacked by two thieves. What follows is a series of challenges as the player must locate certain key items, escape Port Blacksand and eventually confront Bone.

Lediglich das Ende fand ich eher mau: Die Gegner sind plötzlich knüppelhart und ich bin nicht hardcore genug, um wegen ein bisschen Würfelpech am Schluss das ganze Ding nochmal von vorne durchzurauschen. Like is the case with The Warlock, there's really only about one path for you to take, which is one of those things I never much liked: it means that there's little reason for all the other colorful and interesting encounters and challenges, once you've gone through them once and realized that this was the wrong way around. We did this book in a 2017 edition that’s part of new series of a selection of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks by Scholastic.
