Blood Sword Adventure Gamebooks

Bloodsword

Bloodsword is a series of 5 gamebooks set in Legend that can be played solo or with friends (up to 4 characters can run through the books at once). There is some debate as to how 'canon' these books are, as they tend towards higher fantasy than the rest of Legend. However, regardless of how directly they can be translated into the Dragon Warriors RPG, these books can be mined for background on Krarth and plenty of flavour. Dave Morris also novelised these books in a trilogy known as the Chronicles of the Magi.

Bloodsword 1: The Battlepits of Krarth

Bloodsword 1

Every thirteen lunar months, the Magi of Krarth hold a desperate contest to see which of them will rule that bleak and icy land. Teams of daring adventurers are sent down into the labyrinths that lie beneath the tundra, each searching for the Emblem of Victory that will win power for their patron.

Only one team can prevail. The others must die.

Bloodsword 2: The Kingdom of Wyrd

Bloodsword 2

The Warlock King holds the land of Wyrd in thrall. His tyrannised subjects live in perpetual fear, knowing that he can see into their dreams and kill them while they sleep.

But now an ancient prophecy has brought outsiders from beyond the shores of Wyrd. You seek the lost hilt of the Sword of Life. To claim it you must find the Palace of Eternal Dusk and there confront the Warlock King.

It is a struggle which will test the limits of your courage and skill, for the nightmares you must face will be shaped from the darkest corners of your own subconscious mind.

Bloodsword 5: The Walls of Spyte

Bloodsword 5

It is Midwinter's Eve of the year 1000. The Great Fear sweeps across the civilised world. Everyone knows that the Day of Judgment is at hand. It is seven hours to Doomsday.

An arctic wind freezes your bones, but ahead of you lies a smoking chasm that goes right down to the glimmering fires of Hell. You stand at the lip of the abyss which surrounds Spyte, the ruined fortress of the lords of Krarth. In the darkening sky above, five ominous stars have come into conjunction for the first time in two hundred years. Out of the vault of the sky they cast their baleful influence across the frozen landscape - unearthly objects, but far from heavenly ones. They are the disembodied spirits of the last of the Magi, seeking to return to the mortal world at midnight and usher in a new era of terror.
