Overview

Set out on a journey of unlimited adventure!

FABLED LANDS is an epic interactive gamebook series with the scope of a massively multiplayer game world. You can choose to be an explorer, merchant, priest, scholar or soldier of fortune. You can buy a ship or a townhouse, join a temple, undertake desperate adventures in the wilderness or embroil yourself in court intrigues and the sudden violence of city backstreets. You can undertake missions that will earn you allies and enemies, or you can remain a free agent. With thousands of numbered sections to explore, the choices are all yours.

At the Court of Hidden Faces, no one is who they seem. The sinister lords of the Uttakin go masked to hide their treachery. The secret police of the god Ebron kill those who flout their fanatical codes. In this tyrannical realm of betrayal and assassination, life is cheap. But rich rewards await the adventurer courageous enough to penetrate this hostile land.

Will you uncover the secrets of the High King's citadel, where no mortal has trod for ten generations? Or wrest the holy sword from the crypt of Kizil Irmak, the Harbinger of War? Or find the key that unlocks the greatest secret of all - the means to open the gate of Time and travel back into the past?

Your fate is in your own hands. You choose your skills, your goals, where you will venture and what you will do. The only limit is your imagination.

The choices are all yours. And success will give you the powers to venture ever deeper into the amazing role-playing world that is Fabled Lands.

I barely found out about this series. I was about to order a different gamebook series off Amazon, but while I was doing research on the series I noticed someone said there was a gamebook series that was actually free-roam and sandbox, called Fabled Lands! After doing a few days' research on this series I decided to order this series instead of the other series. These books are my all-time favorite gamebooks now! There is so much freedom and things to do, you can spend weeks on just one of the Fabled Lands books! The world is so detailed and interactive you feel like you're inside the book exploring the rich fantasy world! The writing is very good, it doesn't tell you how your character feels which is great because in the Fighting Fantasy series it's constantly telling you how your character feels, cause I thought I was supposed to be the hero and yet it's telling how I feel and only giving me a couple or a few options every once in a while. But in the Fabled Lands books, you get loads of options. When I go to a village, town, or city, it gives the reader at least a whole page of options. You can explore the world of the Fabled Lands in any order, any amount of times, and even when you do revisit an area it usually has a little box above the text, if you're entering that area for the first time you put a tick in the box and read on so the next time you come to the area and the box is ticked, you turn to a different paragraph and a totally different event happens! There will also be many situations when the book needs you to roll to dice to see what random event/encounter takes place. There are many quests to undertake in the series, and you can even get quests from one of these books, but to complete the quest you must travel to another one of these books! I highly recommend this series! I will be copying this review and pasting it onto other sites so more people can read it and buy the books so the other 6 books in this series can be published.
