Below Zero Point is a fan written Fighting Fantasy adventure by Robert Douglas. It was published online in 2011 at[1]


The Globesphere must be located - or Humanity is doomed!

It is 2202AD. Humanity has started to explore and colonize neighbouring star systems. However, crime is always rife; terrorists have stolen a doomsday device which could tip the balance of power in their favour.

As PI Sean Calibre, it is your mission to track down those responsible and locate the Globesphere before it can be utilized against Federal forces. Needless to say, this latest assignment is to be the most dangerous you have undertaken - formidable encounters are arrayed against you: lethal androids, treacherous assassins, terrorist thugs, and bizarre aliens. Friends are few and far between in a star system riddled with corruption and deceit.

From the sprawling Augustus metropolis, through hostile territory, to the icy wastes of Polaris, YOU must recover the Globesphere at all costs. Mankind's destiny depends upon YOU - failure is not an option!

Dare you accept the mission?
