Fighting Fantasy Adaptation For Dragon Age RPG

Postby Bardwulf » Sun Jun 10, 2012 2:22 am

You remember those amazing solo adventure books you played in the 80's and 90's? Oh those were great times indeed. They're the main reason I'm now a gamer. Anyway, did you know that Steven Jackson actually set the ball off rolling on a NON SOLO adventure gamebook series of theirs? Yup, they made an Introductory Roleplaying Adventure book, specifically made for a GM to run with a party! In fact they ended up making a few, but I have started off with the first book and its first adventure "The Wishing Well" and created a conversion guide for running it in Dragon Age.

I'm plotting this at my tier 1 guys who are level 3 currently.

Here is a video of me explaining the initial concept and telling you what I'm going to do.

I have used The Riddling Reaver for a group in the past as a begining AD&D game, and it worked quite well (Its quite a solid adventure/mini campaign).

If you can get your hands on it, it may work well for expanding your game further, or even just for further nostaliga.

It's funny you should say that! My plan is to actually take them through the rest of the book in my video, then move them to Dungeoneer Advanced Fighting Fantasy, then the sequel they made called Blacksand. After all of that I'm actually planning on having them run Riddling Reaver IN THE DRAGON AGE universe. Yes you might think it's mad, but I've thought of a way it can be done. You'll see!

Actually I think it would work quite well, as the Dragon Age and Fighting Fantasy settings are similar in that for the most part not a large percentage of people actually use magic even though both worlds have a fair share of magical creatures and events.

I hope you didn't forget that the old Advanced Fighting Fantasy was a trio of books;

1) Dungoneer
2) Blacksand
3) Allansia

The stories found in each one?

Dungoneer) Tower of the Sorcerer, and Revenge of the Sorcerer
Blacksand) A Shadow Over Blacksand
Allansia) A Darkness Over Kaad

Nevertheless, I have throughly enjoyed hearing how you guys have enjoyed such adventures thus far.

:P

Revenge of Xorton is the major season 2 (tier 2) planned arc followed likely by blacksand.
However, I don't have the Allansia one!
I do have Riddling Reaver though! You wait til you see how I'm planning to run that!

Oh and finally, I'm thinking Shagrad's Hives of Peril for Tier 3 probably. Maybe even Reaver as Tier 3.
Got quite a few other surprises coming up though!
