“ Create your own Adventure and win a first prize of publication and £100! Five runner-up prizes of £20 each are also to be won. Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone have created a world where you can almost believe that dragons breathe fire and fabled treasure can be won. Now Warlock is offering its readers the opportunity to design their own Fighting Fantasy adventures and have them published in a future issue, as well as winning a fantastic prize.
How to Enter
Using the same game system as in The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (see pages 13–15), all you have to do is design an adventure consisting of 200 references. Think of an exciting and original background for the adventure – perhaps a lost city in the jungle or a desert wasteland inhabited by lizards, giant sandworms and nomads. Also think of an objective for the adventurer, perhaps a mission to find somebody or something, or even to slay an evil overlord. Then set the scene in your fantasy world, with plenty of detailed descriptions of the surroundings and inhabitants, trying always to make it sound believable. The judges will be looking for originality in your encounters and inventiveness in the creation of monsters. You should aim to present a real challenge to the adventurer. It might sound simple, but designing an exciting Fighting Fantasy adventure is no easy task.
“ You have been captured by Elves and wrongly accused of murdering the Elf Chief. In order to prove your innocence, you must enter the deadly Dungeon of Justice and emerge with a sacred Golden Idol, hidden somewhere within the underground labyrinth. ”
