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 11 10 Raises a glass to fallen comrades, you are missed Throm. 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 respect.The 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 through.There s no clever plot it s simply a lethal dungeon 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 respect.The 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 through.There 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 trying.It s especially interesting as you cross paths with the other contestants during the course of exploring, some alive and some dead.As usual, there are necessary items to collect in order to succeed the exit door is unlocked by gemstones placed in a certain sequence The first time I reached the exit, I only had one of the necessary gems instead of all three.It 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 those.Spectacularly good 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 a dungeon and asked to get out the other side alive Simpl 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 a dungeon and asked to get out the other side alive Simpleand yet anything but.I think DEATHTRAP DUNGEON best sums up the Dungeons Dragons atmosphere out of all of the books The various foes you fight in the dungeon are creatively inspired, ranging from bog standard goblins and orcs to hideous ethereal creatures and the nasty on the cover There are deadly traps all over the place, along with situations like where you find a bottle of acid and have the option of drinking it nasty I still remember the horrible bit with the idol after it killed me as a kid I think everyone who s ever played this has died at that stage at some point.What I particularly liked about this one is that there are other contestants taking the same test and you occasionally find evidence of their passage within the bowels of the dungeon or,usually, their bodies You even get to team up with one of them at one stage, which adds some moral complexity to the story In any case, this was a childhood favourite and for good reason it s a great little book 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

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 aindirect way Deathtrap Dungeon was one of my favourite Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks because the concept was quite 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 Theblood that is spilt theexcited 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, orlikely 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 aAsian 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 littledifficult, 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
