You need to make your journey YOU decide which route to follow which dangers to risk and which monsters to fight Part story part game this is a book with a difference – one in which YOU become the he. By most people s reckoning this was the best of all the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks I m not absolutely sure I agree with that I always liked Midnight Rogue best having a passion for fantasy thievery but it s a viewpoint I fully understand and respectThe book is uniformly excellent It lives up to its name with a great many traps some instantly lethal and others debilitating Note taking and mapping is mandatory to finally win throughThere s no clever plot it s simply a lethal dungeon that has been constructed by a baron for the sole purpose of attracting tourists and generating cash Each year there s a huge festival as volunteers run the gauntlet of traps and monsters If anyone survives through to the end and re emerges into daylight they get a huge prize This lack of a complex plot works to the book s advantage giving it a solid reason for the existence of such a twisted maze it s a test of skill and endurance undertaken as a chance to get rich or die tryingIt s especially interesting as you cross paths with the other contestants during the course of exploring some alive and some deadAs usual there are necessary items to collect in order to succeed the exit door is unlocked by gemstones placed in a certain seuence The first time I reached the exit I only had one of the necessary gems instead of all threeIt s fascinating throughout edge of the seat reading as you try to second guess what s a trap and what s there to genuinely assist Be warned that it s very hard and punishing If you start out by rolling less than 10 each for Skill and Luck and 20 for Stamina do yourself a favour and reroll because you ll be wasting your time otherwise as you ll never get through with scores lower than thoseSpectacularly good

Deathtrap Dungeon Fighting Fantasy #6

Down in the twisting labyrinth of Fang unknown horrors await you Countless adventurers before you have takes up the challenge of the Trial of Champions but not one has survived Devised by the devilish. A deadly competition in a deadly dungeon18 June 2012 One of the things I like doing with roleplaying games is looking at how morally ambiguous many of them are In a lot of cases they treat the universe with a very black and white mentality and force people into these categories without actually looking at the bigger picture I guess this is the product of the 80s where the political spectrum was very black and white with the communists being bad and the capitalists being good My position is that simply because you are a communist does not mean you are bad or that you supported the policies of Joseph Stalin and just because you are a capitalist does not necessarily mean that you are good However this has nothing to do with this game book well it does but in a indirect way Deathtrap Dungeon was one of my favourite Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks because the concept was uite different to what I was used to with roleplaying games Many of the games follow the standard plot of a village being tormented by some bad people and the heroes then set off to find and kill those bad people and save the day This is not the case in Deathtrap Dungeon The game is based around a challenge that is held every year when a group of adventurers sign up to attempt to complete a challenge known as the Trial of Champions Simply put either you win or you die much like the Game of Thrones and to be honest before you come along nobody has won which means that everybody has died obviously To make matters worse only one person can leave the dungeon as a champion and obviously you want to be that person To put it simply this is blood sport much like that of the Ancient Romans The blood that is spilt the excited the crowd becomes Granted back in Rome gladiators took on the role that our sporting heroes take on today the only problem was that you would only retain that support as long as you won namely because if you didn t win you would die However there are suggestions that it did not always end in death and if you were defeated but not killed then there was always the possibility that you would live to fight another day The problem with Deathtrap Dungeon being a bloodsport in this sense is that the crowd see you enter but does not know what is happening inside Obviously there would be gambling rackets on the side or likely in the open and would probably look like this Once again you would only win if the person you put money on actually comes out from the other side alive obviously Nobody knows what is happening inside the dungeon which suits the baron because he does not want anybody knowing about the secrets of the dungeon or how to escape Livingstone gave a Asian flavour to this gamebook by giving the name of the region an Asian flavour however it does not seem that an actual Asian gamebook was released until the Sword of the Samurai It made creating the world a little difficult with an Asian sounding province to the north of the European sounding provinces but then again this is a game world that was mostly for teenagers and I doubt they really cared

Mind of Baron Sukumvit the labyrinth is riddled with fiendish traps and hideous creatures of darkness to trick and test you almost beyond the limits of enduranceTwo dice a pencil and an eraser are all. I was only 9 years old when I got this book And that was in the year 2010 I know this book is from the 80 s and it s a different style to me And I love it I have never liked those adventure video games like skyrim and stuff But this was amazing The fighting system is genius and the story is awesome I had a day of fun with this book I finished it on the 3rd try but it was the probably one of the best games I have ever played 1110

    DEATHTRAP DUNGEON is put simply the granddaddy of all FIGHTING FANTASY gamebooks It comes second only to THE WARLOCK OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN in terms of popularity I think but it actually improves on that first outing in terms of the amount of atmosphere and spine tingling suspense that this one holds There's a saying that simplicity always wins out over complication and that's certainly the case here you're an adventurer thrown into

    Faces laugh in beams of light;Acid drips from stalactites;Eat the fungus you'll be swell;If grubs don't get you troglodytes willThe Bloodbeast pulls you into a vat Of corrosive slime and bubbling fatIn Sukumvit's maze you must be cleverAnd find the right gems or be trapped forever

    I died within 12 minutes An emerald eye released a noxious gas and I fell to the floor in agony It was a beautiful thing I started the gamereading knowing that I would most likely die within the first few choices I had a really high luck and stamina so any battles I entered into I came out relatively unscathed I also had a habit

    Classic Livingstoneuite good flavour in this one Decent background story and events that go along with it ie seeing evidence of the other contestants and encountering some of them laterVery Livingstone structure ie main path with side events eg a room with about 10 sections and then back to the main path Some branching that then coalescesIn

    Deathtrap dungeon was one of the early tools of escapism for anyone who preferred to charge a field yielding a sword rather than go to work I decided to revisit it after many years and I still found its simplistic straight to the p
