Posted on August 31, 2021 by

New Edition of Blood Sword for 5th Edition Live on Kickstarter

Posted on June 18, 2021 by

When it was first released, Blood Sword was the first series of interactive novels that allowed you to play singly or in a group. Part-gamebook, part-RPG, it allowed its readers to imagine themselves in a fantastic and dark world, full of dangerous magic and populated by powerful sorcerers and frightening beasts. That revolutionary epic, a five-volume masterpiece, was an overwhelming international success, and went on to thrill generations of adventurers. Even today, after numerous reprints, it remains a bestseller.

“Blood Sword is the sword of life, the only weapon capable of opposing the evil power of the Wizards of Krarth who threaten the Lands of Legend. Your mission is to retrieve the fragments of the sword and thus bring an end to the impending doom, but to do so, you will have to face the grim and harsh Kingdom of Wyrd, with its trap-ridden labyrinths, fearful beasts, and enemies of all kinds and shapes.
