The much anticipated digital adaptation of Bloodbones is only days away now and will be announced here as soon as it is.
Another much anticipated and well overdue offering is the latest issue of the Fighting Fantazine. A bit harsh since it is put together by volunteers and fans. However, always put together very well and always worth the wait. Again, due any day now.

Introducing NIGHTSHADE, a new amateur adventure sent in by the talented Mark Lain - Enjoy!
This is the first part of a series of adventures where YOU play the part of a lesser demon known to human demon lore as Pesmagroth, although your real name is beyond the wit and pronunciation limits of the average human. You were imprisoned in a sacred stone, the Sircarstone, decades upon decades ago and have now successfully duped a weak-willed sorcerer into performing the complex (and totally forbidden) dark ritual required to release you from your prison.

Tin Man Games have been busy with the Fighting Fantasy apps. It seems other commitments have changed the order once more. Following the release of Appointment with FEAR we expected to see The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, however Bloodbones was announced as next up which was not even on the radar initially.
To mix it up even more and keep you on your toes, neither are being released as yet in favour of Caverns of Snow Witch taking pole position in the race for the next release (watching the Sochi Grand Prix as I type).

Here is a picture of "the Warlock's envoy of this earthly plane" (in the words of Jonathan Green in YOU ARE THE HERO) at the Fighting Fantasy Fest 2014 last Sunday.
Head over to the facebook page of Jonathan Green where you can see some of the pictures taken for the event. It was a brilliant day for new collectables as well. I not only received my yellow entry backpack which included a convention booklet, 2 dice, a pen, a copy of Forest of Doom, a copy of Blood Royal (Pax Brittania) by Jonathan Green, a badge and a limited edition Zagor miniature by Otherworld Miniatures, I also received my hardback copy of YOU ARE THE HERO (signed!) which is indeed a mighty tome that will take several weeks to read along with a YOU ARE THE HERO eraser, 2 dice and a pencil. I managed to buy a duplicate set of these and a few more different badges made for the event and a Fighting Fantasy Fest poster none the less. Oh and I purchased a limited edition All Rolled Up pouch featuring The Shamutanti Hills artwork by John Blanche.
Due to selling original and new stock of books and collectables all day long I barely got away to see the stands and meet everyone. In addition to Ian Livingstone, Steve Jackson and Jonathan Green I had the pleasure to meet the artists Malcolm Barter, Tony Hough, John Blanche, Steve Luxton, Leo Hartas, Russ Nicholson and Chris Achilleos. Neil Rennison of Tin Man Games and Graham Bottley of Arion Games were also present.
More stories and pictures will follow.

For those who cannot make it, follow us on Twitter and Facebook using #FFF2014 on Sunday. Roll a dice and wish me luck for I am about to embark on a journey that only the brave would dare take on.
