Are you ready to start your own Trial of Champions?

Despite its name, Fang was an ordinary small town in the northern province of Chiang Mai. Situated on the banks of the River Kok, it made a convenient stopover for river traders and passengers throughout most of the year. A few barges, rafts and sometimes even a large sailboat could usually be found moored at Fang. But all that was long ago, before the creation of the Trial of Champions. Now, once a year, the river is crammed with boats as people arrive from hundred of miles around, hoping to witness the breaking of an ancient tradition in Fang and see a victor in the Trial of Champions.

On 1 May each year, warriors and heroes come to Fang to face the test of their lives. Survival is unlikely, yet many take the risk, for the prize is great - a purse of 10,000 Gold Pieces and the freedom of Chiang Mai forever.

Are you ready to take on the challenge of Deathtrap Dungeon?

First published in 1984, Ian Livingstone's Deathtrap Dungeon is back, courtesy of Scholastic Books, in a brand new edition, illustrated by digital artist Vlado Krizan.

However, you can also play the original 1984 edition, as illustrated by Hollywood concept artist Iain McCaig, courtesy of Tin Man Games' Fighting Fantasy Classics app.


But whichever format you choose - book or app - you know you're going to be in for one hell of a ride! And remember - beware the Bloodbeast!
