Isle of the Cyclops was a fan written Fighting Fantasy adventure by Andrew Wright. It was published online in 2005 at Fighting Fantasy Project.[1]


"Row, wretch!" howled an obese Man-Orc taskmaster, lashing your back with a blow from his spiked whip. Days passed and the welts on your back grew longer, as your slave-ship, the Blood Auk, headed southwards. Captained by a furious red-faced man called Kullion the Crab, the ship was sailing for the Blood Islands, for it was part of the fleet of the Chaos Pirates, who flock to those shores like seabirds to the carcass of a whale.[2]


While the adventure is set in the Fighting Fantasy world of Titan, the adventure make use of the game system created by Per Jorner for his non-Fighting Fantasy based amateur adventure Mansion of Maleficence which in turn is partly based on the game system of the Fabled Lands gamebooks.

Unique RulesEdit

  • The player has the choice of one of four pre-generated characters or rolling their own. The four pre-generated characters are:
  • The stats involved are: skill, resource and vitality. Starting scores are determined by choice of profession: Priest, Rogue, Sorcerer, or Warrior.
  • A maximum of 8 items may be carried at any one time, the player's starting weapon counting as one item.
  • The plater begins with no Talons, the currency used in the game.
  • Some paragraphs have tick boxes next to the reference number in or to "remember" if something has been done already.

Equipment ListEdit
