Nye's Song is a fan written Fighting Fantasy adventure by Robert Douglas. It was published online in 2012 at The Chronicles of Arborell.


A daring mission deep within Shadow territory!

Since the mid-18th century, the world has been devastated by demons and black magic. Humans retreated to strongholds, on the defensive, researching science and the supernatural elements to help combat the 'Blight'. YOU are Captain William Nye of the Warwick garrison. An embittered veteran whose latest mission is to rescue a person of prominent status. However, YOU aren't so happy at risking the lives of your men for the sake of one soul, no matter how famous it is...

How to Endure the BlightEdit

The adventure in general follows the original rules set down in The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (see Game System).
