Entering the first house I came to, I met a man who made a deal with me – swallow one of his pills of unlabeled medication. The paragraphs with a full page illustration were: 1, 17, 27, 31, 40, 62, 80, 88, 113, 135, 148, 171, 178, 182, 203, 224, 239, 250, 265, 271, 292, 307, 319, 329, 344, 349, 356, 370, 385 and 398. City of Thieves is a single-player role-playing gamebook written by Ian Livingstone, illustrated by Iain McCaig and originally published in 1983 by Puffin Books.

All these factors help bump it into something I like and something I'd recommend, and that I still rather like to play through sometimes, even if it's largely by autopilot nowadays. Others in the series will have you pulling your hair out when you seem to go in endless circles and just want to advance in the story. Port Blacksand ist ein tolles Setting mit einer ganzen Reihe an mehr oder weniger verqueren Begegnungen. The modern artwork is nice but I wish we had the old version with the original artwork by Ian McCaig, who also designed the characters of Darth Maul and Padme for Starwars (the character on the original cover illustration of City of Thieves is a skeletal twin of Darth Maul, with a scythe instead of a lightsaber! I feel future entries in the series will struggle to match City of Thieves for atmosphere, playability and excitement.You're given no clues, it's simply a case of eeny meeny miney mo, and if you choose wrong, you're dead. Well, I suppose I had to encounter the naked pirate earlier… some mental images you just don’t want to live with. While I'm here: thanks for publishing these fair, fun and thorough reviews, Malthus Dire, I have already enjoyed many of them and you consistently point out good things I overlooked in any given FF book.

Even if you get items to help, towards the end of the book you have to engage in some fights were, even under the best scenario, odds are stacked against you. There feels like there’s a lot going on at all times, and it’s still one of my favorite of the series. Aus der Güte deines Herzens heraus (und gegen entsprechende Belohnung) ziehst du aus, um im verruchten Port Blacksand Hilfe zu holen. Hired by a desperate mayor, the player must as the adventurer journey to the dangerous city-state of Port Blacksand (the titular "City of Thieves"), and find the wizard Nicodemus, who apparently knows of Bone's one weakness.It introduces us to one of my favourite Wretched Hives in all fiction, and greatly expands the scope and the size of the entire setting for that matter. Some have suggested that the Hero of this book is the same individual as that of the next gamebook in the original series, Deathtrap Dungeon, since he journeys from Port Blacksand to Fang, [6] and also that of the next gamebook after that, Island of the Lizard King, since he journeys from Fang to Oyster Bay, [7] though nowhere is this stated explicitly. Venturesome reader, if you feel bold, take up a sheet of paper and two dice - helpfully, random rolls are printed on every page, if you lack them - and embark on your quest.
