Hi folks,

This looks like an incredible deal for the over 30s who remember FIRETOP MOUNTAIN, the book. Anyone? Well this hardback is SIGNED by Steve Jackon and Ian Livingstone and is the 25th Anniversary edition (I know :(), packed with extras and artwork apparently. The best bit is that its only £5.99 - less with QUIDCO. If your partner is in their 30s, get them this for xmas. Guaranteed to bring back memories!! Its on my shopping list!

Oooh, and a P.S. Anyone remember the HUKD 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS from last year? I've set it up again on the Misc. forum. Its here:

No one remember? :)


I remember. :thumbsup: I originally bought this in a boxed set with the next two books ("The Citadel of Chaos" & "The Forest of Doom"), and then got several others in the series before moving on to AD&D. The books were great fun. :viking:

Nice find, although I can't believe it was 25 years ago! :shock:

Oh God - its all flooding back to me now. Were't they the PAGE TURNERS? (if you know what I mean?!). Where did my childhood go!?
#3

There must be millions of 30something men (and women) kicking around who have totally forgotten about their fascination with this. TURN TO PAGE 31...nice :)

Godness, did they do 50+?

Can you point out on the page where it says who its signed by?

I remember reading once that one of the writers of these books became a big cheese in computer games - I think it was Ian Livingstone - he was the chairman of Eidos which made Tomb Raider etc.

Voted Hot!

If I remember rightly, ig you don't go through the library to get the code to the door, you are absolutely stuffed. Wait that was the Citadel of Chaos. This one is the one with all the keys isn't it?

They both did:

Steve Jackson founded Lionhead Studios (Black and White, Fable, etc.) with Peter Molyneux.

Ian Livingstone used to be the Chairman at Eidos before leaving when they were taken over by SCi. He later rejoined Eidos as their Creative Director

Yeah, read these books and you'll turn into us :giggle:

The one thing that sticks in my mind from one of these books is something about a mummy and a tinglering, can't remember which book it was though. It says something like, if you have the tinglering turn to pagexx and if you try to be smart and claim it the mummy slaughters you (or something) :lol:

Very tempted to buy this for a friend, as we both used to love these, but we've agreed not to buy each other presents this year (now we're both grown up and have each others kids to buy for).... must resist.

I also loved the Lone Wolf and Road Warrior series of books.

What a great idea!!
#28
I used to love playing these books when i was younger, can't believe its been that long since they came out. I even named my warlock in world of warcraft Firetopmount in honour of the books. So tempted to get one:)

Can you point out on the page where it says who its signed by?


Not sure what it states it on the site but my copy is signed by both Ian and Steve and is a nice hardback reprint.

Remember these books well, used to read them before moving onto the excellent Way of the Tiger books.

[SIZE="2"][INDENT]You are Avenger, a Ninja warrior, worshipper of Kwon, Supreme Master of Unarmed Combat. Trained in the Way of the Tiger.....[/SIZE] [/INDENT]

There was always a strong connection between these Livingstone/Jackson fighting fantasy books books and computer games a number were released for the C64 as adventure type games and the above Ninja books spawned Way of the Tiger and Avenger on the C64/Spectrum though these games bore no more than a passing resembelence to the books.

Too true..aaah its good to know I wasnt alone in my memories :)
#32
Ok, I've a feeling I'm the first girl to post in this thread...

I LOVED these books as a kid and about five years ago bought most (if not all of them) from ebay. As a child I only ever had one of the books to call my own (Citadel of Chaos) and checked the others out of the library.

Although decidedly nerdy for a girl (and even for a boy... :P) I didn't go the whole hog with paper, pencil and dice. I just used to asume i would roll the necessary number for a good outcome :D

Hmmm, do I want this? Yes. But the ones I bought from ebay have simply sat in the cupboard since I got them... I guess that's the thing about collecting/nostalgia - you don't have to actually USE the stuff, just knwing you have it makes you feel that little bit better.

Thanks for the heads up - voted hot! :D

I guess that makes me a gurl too then! :)
#34
It was 25 years ago since I read them!!!!

I have not seen the crying game and now I don't think I need to ;-)
#35
I have to admit to always "winning" the dice rolls!! I was in it for the differing stories, they were ace.

And was it just me but did anyone else turn straight to the adventure sheet to see if there were any extra boxes from the norm? Any new rules for that particular book?

Looks like they've sold out on Play now :( can't click to buy anymore :(

Yup - looks like they're all out...sheesh. They only have the regular unsigned copies which are a pound less now.

Ahh - I'm basking in all that CP...sort of :)
#37
Hehe, I'm not saying it's girly to use the paper/pencil/dice... just extra credit on the nerdy scale ;) as I say though, just to even be interested in these books as a girl was decidedly nerdy!

Well, I just ordered it. From one of the sellers as it appears play do not have any in stock themselves... I shoulda checked ebay first I guess. Darn it. I need coffee.

Heh. I'm smiling at the thought of this winging its way to me though. I guess my inner nerd will always hold sway over me ;)
