Caverns of the Snow Witch is a single-player role-playing mini adventure written by Ian Livingstone, and illustrated by Duncan Smith. It was published in 1984 in Warlock Issue 2 by Penguin Books. The adventure ends after the termination of the Snow Witch and the book version expands on what happens afterwards.
This shorter version of Caverns of the Snow Witch was published in the pages of Warlock only a couple of months prior to the publication of the full length gamebook and the "Fighting Fantasy News" section of Issue 3 makes it clear the adventure was always planned as a gamebook and simply shortened and modified for use in the magazine:
“ [It was] originally intended to be the next... [gamebook], but we decided to give readers a taste of what was to come by publishing [a] shortened [version] in the magazine. The full [adventure], which [is] very different from the Warlock [version] – and twice as long – [has] been completed. ”
How to Fight the Creatures of the Ice CavernsEdit
No potion choice is provided.
The illustrations were by Duncan Smith. There were 19 full page (or equivalent) illustrations, 2 smaller illustrations and 6 minor repeated illustrations (one of which is by Russ Nicholson and taken from The Warlock of Firetop Mountain) scattered throughout the text. The paragraphs with a full page (or equivalent) illustration were: Background, 5, 18, 25, 37, 47, 56, 76, 86, 102, 107, 115, 123, 136, 146, 156, 166, 183 and 189.
