A more affordable, black & white edition of Volume One is now available to purchase. This softcover book features exactly the same content as the full-colour version, and is also the same 6″ x 9″ Trade Paperback size. You can see from the images above (taken outside in the garden) that all of the colour maps and illustrations have been suitably adjusted to match the specific requirements of mono printing – I’m happy with how they present here, and know that this cheaper version of the book will please many who wish to play the adventure with a printed copy.

This first volume in your long and arduous adventure across Quahnarren has just been launched as a Kickstarter-exclusive pdf featuring special BONUS TOKENS that will enhance your playing experience – and ONLY ever be available during this campaign.

An important milestone has just been reached: the layout of Volume One has now been completed, and with the guidance of the gamebook gods to help it finally emerge in finished form, the overall page count has arrived at that most significant of all numbers – 400!
Four illustrations still remain to be completed, and the links are not yet set, but the progress made recently means that it’s now in the home straight and rapidly reaching the finish line. The layout process has been quite lengthy, as I’ve reread the book again and updated a few written sections that didn’t exactly capture the moment that I had envisaged, and I’ve subsequently then picked up a few minor errors, various typos and general inconsistencies that had frustratingly avoided detection until now.
I’ve also finalised the bonus tokens that will only be available within the Kickstarter-exclusive Special Edition pdf – the campaign for which will begin sometime soon. Details of the exact starting date will follow in the next update.
