The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is back for the third time, this time as a commercial promo for the Legend of Zagor board game. Choose from 4 adventurers and run them into the same meat grinder with no hope of survival! Review and Opinion Unplayable rubbish.
The wizard starts off hopelessly crippled. And there are lots of these rolls, which will deplete your Luck early into level 1 of the castle. Sadly, the wizard was not accommodated with reasonable magic. Sallazar gets 7 Magic points. It costs 4 to use a teleportation gateway, 1 to open a door, and 3 or 5 to use a combat spell which will miss anyway since you need to score a regular combat hit against your enemy who likely does not have a Skill of 5.
The warriors fare somewhat better, but are still hopelessly outmatched by the sheer volume of monsters and traps. Even the precious Tower Chests are trapped and are as likely to kill you as the boss monster that was guarding it. Significant portions of the book only happen if a dice roll is made, again by a Skill roll, e.
But this one was just unplayable with any fairness. Errors The whole book, really. But, no, seriously… If you use the onyx staff on the Hellhorn Champion, the book says to return to page and resume combat. The correct page number is
Legend of Zagor
Edit While Ian Livingstone is credited with writing Legend of Zagor, it was rumoured that The Zagor Chronicles co-author Carl Sargent who wrote gamebooks under the name Keith Martin was involved with writing the book since some elements of the book mirror his style. Legend of Zagor is markedly different in that the player has much more freedom to explore the castle and choose whether or not to enter certain places, and the various items found are mostly combat aids potions , special weapons, etc. The matter was finally put to rest in when Livingstone confirmed that Carl Sargent was indeed the actual author. The very name of the Warlock of Firetop Mountain strikes terror into all who hear it. Banished from the world of Titan, the sorcerer is slowly but surely regaining his strength. Within Castle Argent, in the kingdom of Amarillia, Zagor has been transformed into a demon.
Legend of Zagor (book)
Indeed, the gamebook and board game involve YOU playing out the plot of specifically the second Zagor Chronicles novel, Darkthrone, which involves a group of four adventurers making their way through Castle Argent in a bid to hunt down and kill Zagor who, due to a technical error in trapping a Bone Demon in the Casket of Souls, has been released into the castle in demon form. For several reasons, the nature of the overall plot concept means that this gamebook is unlike any other FF book published. Most strikingly unique is that YOU play one of four pre-defined characters: Anvar the barbarian, Braxus the warrior, Stubble the dwarf, or Sallazar the wizard. This is both problematic and of benefit — it is a problem as YOU are not the hero, instead YOU are someone else; it is a benefit as it allows for numerous interesting changes to the dynamics and creation of your character.
Guess Whos Back? Well, he happens to be back. Anyway, after dealing with this supposed bad guy it sort of sounds like history was rewritten somewhat after the fact it seemed as if he was gone for good. Well, when it came to Alansia, the world of the Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, he was. Rather, you get the choice of one of four characters — a barbarian, a dwarf, a fighter, or a sorcerer.
