Ore FftD: 311

The hillside is steep and the earth is loose and slippery. You chance a swift glance over your shoulder and see the two Giaks emerge from the woods. They start to climb after you. About halfway from the peak of the hill, you spot a cave to your right, almost totally hidden by a landslide.


If you have the Kai Discipline of Camouflage, turn to 324.

If you wish to hide in the cave, turn to 279.

If you wish to avoid the cave and continue your climb to the peak, turn to 47.


((I'm going to autopilot this along, guessing that Anansi would never choose to have Garth "hide in a cave".))

WarCraft 3 B.net Eyeball FftD: 47

Breathless and sweating, you claw your way towards the summit of the hill. Suddenly, a large winged shadow passes across the hillside. You look up to see a Kraan circling the peak above. Behind you the Giaks are gaining ground.


Do you stand and fight the Giaks where you are, using the high ground to your advantage? If so, turn to 136.

Or do you grit your teeth and press on towards the peak of the hill? Turn to 322.

Persevere and make a stand on the summit. For Sommerlund!

Press on, young Garth, press on! To the summit of the hill, where the twin faces of glory await you!

Orb of Fire FftD: 322

After what seems an eternity of struggling, you reach the peak of the steep hill. Behind you, above the canopy of trees, you can see the still smouldering remains of the monastery. To the north, a column of jet-black smoke rises high into the sky. Small orange tongues of flame flicker at its base. Your heart sinks as you realize that the port of Toran is ablaze.

Suddenly, a piercing cry above warns you that a Kraan is about to attack. It is about thirty yards away and diving for the kill.


If you are going to stand and fight it as it swoops down, turn to 17.

If you are going to evade its attack and slide down the other side of the hill, away from the Kraan, turn to 89.

By all rights this vile creature should be struck down, but duty over glory so continue onwards down the other side.

To turn one's back on a diving enemy is madness at the best of times, and to stand and fight is to rid the world of one vile servant of evil. Garth must face this abomination head on!

Heads, we go for its head. Tails, we turn tail and fall back.

::flipping:: Tails



In a cloud of dust and loose rocks you career down the steep hillside. The Kraan is still circling above as if waiting to direct the Giaks after you.

Pick a number from the Random Number Table.

If you have picked 0–1, turn to 53.

If it is 2–4, turn to 274.

If it is 5–9, turn to 316.



::rolling for life or death:: 6

Thumbs up FftD: 316

In your haste to avoid the enemy, you catch your foot in a tree root and you are pitched head over heels in a tumble of dust and leaves. Crashing through the undergrowth at the base of the hill, you quickly pick up your weapon and run into the thick forest. The Kraan is no longer circling above, but you can make out the silhouette of two Giaks on the peak of the hill behind.

Wiping the grime from your eyes, you wince as you discover a large bruise on your forehead. Without delay, you run deeper into the safety of the forest.

Turn to 331.

Question FftD: 331

Surrounded by thorny briars and closely packed roots, you see the entrance of a tunnel disappearing into the hillside beyond. It is approximately seven feet in height and just over ten feet wide. As you get closer, you can feel a slight breeze coming from the inky blackness. If the other end of this tunnel emerges on the far side of the hill, it could save you many hours of difficult climbing. But it could also harbour unknown danger.



If you wish to enter the tunnel, turn to 170.

If you would prefer to climb the hillside, turn to 280.

Speed is of the essence, and although this tunnel may harbor unknown dangers, it may also yield unknown treasure! Forward, young Garth!

Panda FftD: 170

The tunnel is dark and the air is much cooler than outside. You carefully advance with one hand on the tunnel wall to aid your sense of direction. You have been in total darkness for three minutes when you detect the foul smell of decay ahead, similar to rotting meat. If you have a Torch and Tinderbox in your Pack, you may light the Torch to see your way ahead.

Suddenly, something heavy drops from the tunnel ceiling onto your back and you fall to your knees. It is a Burrowcrawler and you must fight it, for it is trying to strangle you with its long slimy tentacles.



Burrowcrawler: COMBAT SKILL 17 ENDURANCE 7

If you do not have a torch, deduct 3 points from your COMBAT SKILL during this fight. The Burrowcrawler is immune to Mindblast and Animal Kinship.

If you win, turn to 319.

COMBAT RATIO
10 (13-3)
17
Combat Ratio: -7

BATTLE
Garth: 29/29
Burrowcrawler: 7/7

::rolling:: 9

Loot Bag FftD: 319

The slimy creature lets out a long, ghastly death-cry and collapses. You are near to panic and scramble to your feet, grabbing what you think to be your belt from the jaws of the dead beast. You can see light in the far distance, and you sprint for it as fast as you can. When you finally emerge into the daylight, you fall onto the leafy ground and fight for breath in painful gasps.

Slowly sitting upright, you notice that you are still wearing your belt—you had not lost it after all. What you grabbed from the jaw of the Burrowcrawler was a leather strap with a small pouch and a sheathed Dagger halfway along it. You break open the clasp to find it contains 20 Gold Crowns. You may take both the Dagger and the Crowns if you are able to.

Feeling a little better now, you gather your Equipment together and push on eastwards into the forest.

Turn to 157.

Heal +1
Endurance: 28/29

Human Icon (War3) FftD: 157

The forest begins to thin out until finally you can make out a road through the trees ahead. The highway is full of people heading south. Many are wheeling their possessions along on handcarts.

If you wish to join the refugees and perhaps learn more of what has happened in the north, turn to 30.

If you would prefer to continue to move south but under cover of the trees, turn to 167.

And also, which two weapons do we keep out of the Axe, the Mace, and the Dagger?


Heal +1
Endurance: 29/29

A hero is one who aids those in need. Garth is such a hero.

A dagger is like a tiny sword, right? So let's take that. And axes can come in handy outside of combat, so let's take that too.

The people look tired and hungry. They have come many miles from their burning city. Suddenly, you hear the beat of huge wings coming from the north.

If you’d rather run for the cover of the trees, turn to 261.

I see only one choice this time? I mean, saving the children - it goes without saying, right?

Grunt FftD: 194

You sprint towards the wagon. People are running everywhere in panic as the Kraan make their attack, carrying their poor victims off into the darkening sky. A large Kraan is hovering above the wagon and three snarling Giaks drop from its back onto the startled horses. You must fight them or leave the wagon and run to the safety of a nearby farmhouse.

If you wish to fight the Giaks, turn to 208.

If you wish to run to the farmhouse, turn to 148.


(Autopilot confirming our decision to save the wagon...)

Ha, ha, ha.

Welcome to the chaotic sprawl of war. You ran and killed some monsters that were attacking children, but now you have to run off again. In this instance, there was neither reward nor punishment for being a hero. No closure for the refugees' fate. Just personal bragging rights.
