I have fond memories of the Fighting Fantasy Solo Books from my early days of roleplaying. Unlike other series of solo adventuring (with the exception of Tunnels & Trolls) the Fighting Fantasy series had a very strong RPG feel. I guess this makes sense as to why a solo series was converted into a more standard-style RPG release.
The Advanced Fighting Fantasy Bundle featuring the Arion Games tabletop roleplaying game is based on the phenomenally popular Fighting Fantasy gamebooks by Steve Jackson (the British one) and Ian Livingstone. Originally published in 1989, and presented here in a .PDF ebook of its handsome 2011 Second Edition, Advanced Fighting Fantasy is a complete RPG set in the classic Fighting Fantasy world, with a fast and adaptable system ideal for beginners and well suited to long-term campaigns.
For just US$7.95 you get all four titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $40) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the Advanced Fighting Fantasy Second Edition core rulebook, the Heroes Companion: rules expansion, The Sorcery Spell Book (the grimoire from Steve Jackson's four-book Sorcery! gamebook series), and the monster book Out of the Pit.
Advanced Fighting Fantasy Titan supplementAnd if you pay more than this revival's threshold price of $18.75, you'll level up and also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with six more supplements and adventures worth an additional $59, including the full-length campaign Crown of Kings, the Beyond the Pit monster book, the Titan setting guide (plus the Titan Map), the Blacksand city book (and the Blacksand Map), and The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, a full-length RPG scenario based on the first and most famous Fighting Fantasy gamebook.
