If you happen to live somewhere north of Salamonis - say, the foothills of the Icefinger Mountains - then you will be pleased to hear that Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, the co-creators of Fighting Fantasy and co-founders of Games Workshop, will be taking part in the Edinburgh International Book Festival this year.

On Sunday 12th August 2018, between 2:00pm and 3:00pm, join Messrs Jackson and Livingstone at the Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre to take part in a thrilling interactive audio experience in which YOU become the Hero.

Fighting Fantasy at UK Games Expo 2018

Last weekend, Ian Livingstone attended the UK Games Expo and was greeted by a host of grateful fans, who asked him to sign their much-loved and well-thumbed Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, or took selfies with the gaming legend, or interviewed him for their podcasts and YouTube channels.

Highlights of the event included Ian's live reading of Deathtrap Dungeon, in which he lured The Dark Room's John Robertson to his death again and again and again. The tables were turned later than same evening, when Ian was lured to his death in The Dark Room, although he did walk away with a flamboyant potato for his troubles.

On the Saturday, Ian gave a talk about the history of Games Workshop and also broke the exclusive news that Nomad games are launching Fighting Fantasy Legends Portal later this month.

All Rolled Up were also there, selling their Fighting Fantasy licensed products, including dice trays and bags.

Thank you to everyone who came along to Stand 2-C2 over the course of the weekend to say hello, and it was great to see so many fans passing the torch to the next generation. May your STAMINA never fail!

Fighting Fantasy Classics now available on Steam

As of today, Wednesday 6th June, Fighting Fantasy Classics is available on Steam, ready to be downloaded to you PC or Apple computer.

Ready your sword, pack your provisions and prepare to embark upon quests in which YOU are the hero! Choose what happens at every turn of the page with Fighting Fantasy Classics – text-based role-playing adventures remastered.

The game is a free-to-play download for all Steam users, with every player receiving one full-length gamebook for free with their download - the swashbuckling pirate adventure Bloodbones!

Bloodbones sees you take on the role of a traveller seeking vengeance against the powerful Pirate Lord Cinnabar. The dread Captain raided your village and murdered your family many moons ago, and YOU have journeyed to the Port of Crabs to hunt him down and have your revenge.

Written by Jonathan Green, the original gamebook is notorious for being the 'lost' Fighting Fantasy title and although it was written during the books' Puffin paperback run of the 1980s and 90s, it wasn't published until 2006 by Wizard Books. Now, Bloodbones makes a triumphant return as part of the Fighting Fantasy Classics library.

There are currently seven other classic Fighting Fantasy gamebooks available for purchase, including The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, The Citadel of Chaos, The Forest of Doom, City of Thieves, Deathtrap Dungeon, Island of the Lizard King, and Caverns of the Snow Witch, all of which are currently 25% off!

So don't delay, pick up Fighting Fantasy Classics today! And may your STAMINA never fail!
