Unfortunately Cian decided to walk past some dangerous city guards and when we couldn't bribe them we had to kill them, leading to an escape from the city which we could not enter again. This first part of the game was enjoyable and moderately challenging in places - there were a few locations where things could go badly wrong for you, and I benefitted in one place by making what doesn't immediately look like a wise move. Despite being listed as Used, Very Good quality, no pages marred or noted on - its arrived in a filthy condition. There were 30 full page illustrations and 7 minor repeated illustrations scattered throughout the text.

I especially like the illustration of the gate of Port Blacksand near the beginning, and the wonderful image of the Goblin-like Bays playing Bays’ Ball at entry 40. I would love a pc compendioum of every FF book on pc with scrolling text,online dice,background pictures,funky music and a bit of editing so if you need key items you can backtrack sections. The warren of streets and dilapidated buildings has more character than Firetop Mountain, for example, and you can sense the smells, tastes and hustle and bustle of the place. There were no changes to the actual systems in use and everything remained quite simplistic although still highly enjoyable.

And beyond lies the most fearsome adventure of them all - the tower stronghold of the infamous Zanbar Bone! I’m fairly sure that the ball was a leaded weight, and it was actually an impressive feat of gladiatorial skill which set the body to its limits… but as far as I’m concerned, we were just playing volleyball, because I won with great ease and made some nice gold. I chopped him in two, and took his gold, some garlic, and some knuckle bones he happened to be carrying for some reason.

The one item I could not find (though I suspect that it is located somewhere near the start) is the merchant's pass.It is actually a reasonably easy book, and while they talk about a one true path, it is quite easy to find it. I used to cheat a lot when I used to read it in the past, so this time, I decided not to and see how it goes. The full-page illustrations in the book were accompanied with a caption giving a short extract from the text. Port Blacksand, the titular city of thieves, is a fascinating place for exploration and skullduggery. The book is full of traps and often times there is no way to know which outcome is favorable and which - not.

I have played it on the Kindle - and, after easily getting through most of the story, I am getting stomped by some fights at the end of the book that just seem to require a lot of luck to get through.Curious as to what might happen if I went into the other room of the ship, I found that someone had poured themselves a nice hot bath. Thankfully I'd drawn a map, so was able to go back and visit different locations, so on my second attempt, I found all the items I needed. But theres enough fans out there that i know one day some wise ass will do this and it will be fucking awesome.

In a lot of fantasy novels I note that the settings are generally black and whiteL the good hero goes out to fight and kill the evil villain.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. Beyond lies the most fearsome adventure of them all – the tower stronghold of the infamous Zanbar Bone! Right at the end of the book, that's a really nasty situation to be in, and doesn't feel very fair - I cheated here and looked up all three options before going ahead to win.
