House of Hell was my favorite followed by the traditional Warlock book. So much better than the Choose Your Own Adventure books were choices and endings were incredibly arbitrary. Yeah, London is not in the immediate future though. This is very cool, though.

I know :( Are they a one-per-customer job or available for sale at the event? :froth: Some of us have been booked into Partizan for months and would have gone otherwise :argue:

Limited edition show only figure I think, but ...
T'Otherworld Facebook thingy wrote:We will be able to make a limited number of castings available after the Fest. It will have a slotta-tab and plastic base instead of the 'Fighting Fantasy Fest 2014' base, but will be otherwise identical. More details soon about how you can order one.

Blackmail or bribery would work as well, I imagine.

Steve Jackson US was in London last weekend. He wrote one of the Steve Jackson FF books. Would be cool if he was there too. Or perhaps it is that SJ who is going?
It's happening again...

What an excellent idea.
Won't be able to go myself, but would love to and I love the idea it's taking place.
I got into gaming via the Fighting Fantasy books (Starship Traveller was the first I completed, but Forest of Doom was my favourite).
Brilliant stuff.
I'm going to have to order that Jonathan Green book.
