Armies of Death

Post  msistarted on Sun Dec 05, 2010 12:42 am

Armies Of Death is a single-player roleplaying gamebook written by Ian Livingstone, illustrated by Nik Williams and originally published in 1988 by Puffin Books. It was later republished by Wizard Books in 2003. It forms part of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy series. It is the 36th in the series in the original Puffin series (ISBN 0-14-032486-0) and 14th in the modern Wizard series (ISBN 1-84046-436-4).

It is a sequel to previous Fighting Fantasy book Trial of Champions (the player assumes the role of the adventurer who successfully completed this earlier book), which in turn was a sequel to Deathtrap Dungeon. However this book bears no resemblance to the two previous ones, despite featuring the same adventurer. The book contains rules for mass-battle combat.

[edit] Story

The kingdom of Allansia is under threat. Agglax the evil Zombie-Lord is amassing an army of undead warriors in easter Allansia, beyond the Forest of Fiends. His army increases in size with every attack it makes on the local villages and every day its ranks are swelled with slaughtered victims under Agglax’s evil spell. Unless they are stopped now, the undead will take over the entire kingdom.

YOU are Allansia’s only hope. Your mission is to raise an army which will defeat the terrifying undead troops... but how can you conquer an army which grows in numbers with every battle it fights?

The reader assumes the role of the winner of the Trial Of Champions, who has a newly won purse of 20,000 Gold Pieces. The reader must defeat an evil Shadow Demon, Agglax and his undead army and stop them from taking over the region of Allansia by assembling an army bought with the gold.

Wizard did not print a Special Limited Edition of Armies of Death due to the pressures of releasing the series in Australia at the time.[1]
