Well I blew 10gp on a Ring of Invisibility from that jeweller near the start and it turns out there is literally not a single paragraph where you're invited to use it.

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. Though having said that, there's one unwelcome instance where if you stop to do one thing, the book doesn't then allow you the chance to duck down a side alley you had noticed a moment before. The book didn’t give me the option of just drawing it on my face with the chalk I’d found, though (which is probably the least stupid option), and instead told me that I went back to Silverton in failure. 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.

We believe in an honest and beautiful approach to design that celebrates utility, timelessness, and traditional methods of hand crafting. In the Wizard "Series 2" edition, instead of rolling the stats for a character as per tradition in Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, the player has the option of choosing a pregenerated character from three choices (see "Further Notes" below for choices).

Personally, it really comes down to culture, and what the culture does with the corpse really is what that culture believes. You can't fight him (even hitting him with the silver arrow is a Luck roll), you can't outwit him, his only dialogue is a cringeworthy "Mwahaha"-type outburst - once you meet him, you simply do what you've been teed up to do. There's quite a few places where you need a fair amount of luck, and a good assortment of characters to interact with. It comes across as a well-developed, coherent environment, quite amazing for such an early entrant into the series.

While the majority of the book is set in Port Blacksand, it moves away from the other books slightly in that the end game begins once you have left Port Blacksand.

Further along Candle Street, I found a group of little gnome-like creatures playing a game much like baseball. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. By all accounts things get pretty difficult in the second half, but unfortunately we never made it that far, failing to acquire all the needed items before we left the city. There's a real homogeneity to the various locations in the story, and it's a place that cries out to be mapped so that further adventures build and expand on what's come before. Beyond lies the most fearsome adventure of them all – the tower stronghold of the infamous Zanbar Bone!There were no changes to the actual systems in use and everything remained quite simplistic although still highly enjoyable. I got way too invested in this for several days and second only to almost getting hit by a car on my bike in the dark.
