The Realms of Shabak was a Fighting Fantasy-orientated website run by Hugh Eldred-Grigg and launched in 2001. The site closed in 2003.


The introductory paragraph of the site read thus:

Greetings, weary traveler. Welcome to the Principality of Shabak. The Grand Vizier will endeavour to ensure that your stay is a profitable and interesting one. We do not recieve many visitors, for our nation is far from the other nations of Allansia and the journey is often a hostile one, but we hope that you will find our land welcoming. However, be warned - our land is not always a peaceful one, and there are as many dangers lurking within its borders as any other part of Allansia. Life is not always safe in Shabak, but it is never boring.
