lines These books couldn t have been published at a better time for me.The CYOA and DD connection makes sense With both of them, the reader of the book or player of the game is in control of his her own destiny That s very empowering for children, who are so accustomed to being told what to do they often feel as if their lives are set upon railroad tracks Usually I give these Endless Quest books two to four stars Pillars of Pentegarn gets a full five from me for having been the first Endless Quest book I ever read and only my second CYOA overall This book took me into the world of fantasy adventure, which I d recently come to love thanks to DDI m not pictured above, but might as well be These are prototypical early 80s DD scenes Ah the joy of opening the red box on Christmas morning In Pillars of Pentegarn you are a young boy from a village The story begins with you hanging out in the woods with your fox, owl and tree friends Along come a band of goblins on the trail of adventurers heading for some nearby ruins Do you warn the adventurers of the coming danger or do you forget about it and head home Of course you warn them I always thought you looked far too happy about having to patch up Owl s wounds in this picture After a few pages of exposition, you re ready to start your quest of destroying the Evil One or Evil Master or Black Master, it really just depends on what Estes decided to call the bad guy on that particular page Your companions on this quest are a wizard, fighter and thief The only thing missing to make this the average DD adventuring party is a cleric a priest with healing powers , which is one of the reasons this particular book in the series appealed to methan the others, the fact that it modeled a DD game closer than any other Endless Quest book I read As a kid I used to read this thing over and over, even after I d exhausted all the possible endings Basically the plot unfolds in four basic ways dependent upon whose manner of questing you choose the wizard s, thief s, fighter s or your own For the purposes of this review I went on four adventures, choosing each of the character s paths once Here are the results Adventure 1 Taking the path of the wizard his name s Pentegarn and this was his castle once, btw I hit the jackpot with the best ending possible The kid s still got it Adventure 2 I tried the thief s suggestion and snuck through the dungeon, which proved difficult what with all the wolves, goblins and skellingtons trying to kill us In the end, only she and I survive But hey, the bad guy was defeated, so that s a plus If memory serves though, when taking the thief s path she ends up dead a lot Adventure 3 Went with the fighter s idea and boldly bashed through, fighting whatever foe dared face us The fighter was soon dead And somehow I ended up with the same exact ending as in adventure 2 Adventure 4 Oops Maybe this is the best possible ending This time I choose my own path to the Evil One and everything turned out perfectly peachy It was a strange journey though, almost nonchalant at times There s one point where the wizard is trying and failing at making our weapons magical and he basically says, Oh, sorry Well, the Evil One s in the next room, so let s go Then I whip out a magic amulet that s only briefly mentioned once before, and without knowing how it works or what it does, I defeat the bad guy Whatever I M 1 I M 1 I d forgotten how fast the choices pop up in this one You seldom gothan a couple pages before another decision is necessary There s very few of the long, drawn out passages of the second book in the series and only a couple of those double back loops that sometimes mar these books.A quick note on the illustrations Every EQ book I ve seen had two illustrators, one for the color cover and one for the interior bw drawings That means the characters often appear different from the cover to the interior, but never has that been so apparent as with this book Example The characters on the inside all have iron straight hair and the thief looks like a bit like Kate Blanchett On the cover everyone s got super wavy perms and the thief looks like a pole dancer from ancient Sparta Overall this is a light, fun read that may not excite an older reader, but I believe it was written for the early teen crowd and I think it would still hold up as good reading for the 9 to 12 year old set

    Time for an eviction6 June 2012 I do remember reading this book long ago as I would not have ignored a book with a skeletal dragon on the cover Unfortunately I don t remember reading a huge number of the Endless Quest books and I hope as I comment on the other ones I do not accidentally start writing about books that I have not read, though I guess that is one of those problems when you try to put up a list of all of the books that you have read but not having them either on hand One of the go Time for an eviction6 June 2012 I do remember reading this book long ago as I would not have ignored a book with a skeletal dragon on the cover Unfortunately I don t remember reading a huge number of the Endless Quest books and I hope as I comment on the other ones I do not accidentally start writing about books that I have not read, though I guess that is one of those problems when you try to put up a list of all of the books that you have read but not having them either on hand One of the good things about these books though is not only the rereadability factor Shakespeare has that but the fact that they are quite quick to read I can read through a Fighting Fantasy book in about a night, and that includes checking out multiple entries though they are the ones that I am already familiar with In this book you play Jamie, a peasant boy who has the ability to talk to animals, and the two animals that accompany you are fox and owl However you have also joined up with a band of adventurers to attempt to retake a castle and drive out the nasty inhabitants which no doubt includes a skeletal dragon or is it a draco lich I won t go too deep into the morality of this, though I would raise question marks as to why you would have the right to kick the occupants of a castle out when it is their home I guess this has something to do with the law of property, and hopefully the adventurers do have title to the castle and that the goblins are littlethan squatters So, basically, this is an eviction, whether the eviction be right or wrong and as I have suggested before, I doubt we are going to be able to evolve as human beings while hanging on to the antiquated property laws I would also like to write a bit about the main character, namely because somebody has suggested that it is not quite Dungeons and Dragons Personally I would have to disagree because while they are not bringing in the rules and having you roll dice, you are still experiencing a fantasy world playing a fantasy character The whole idea of having a couple of animal companions suggests that you are either a ranger or a druid, and I aminclined to suggest that you are a druid In a way I find the druid characterexotic namely because there are generally not played as much as the major character classes, and they are also somewhatdifficult to play Granted, I tend not to play druids, but then I have never been particularly interested in priestly classes I tend to like fighters, mages, thieves, bards, and rangers However, with the changes to the rules and I have heard that a 5th edition is being produced with 3rd edition I felt that the druid class was a little obsolete In fact the way the new rules had been constructed, pretty much all of the classes beyond the initial four were made obsolete with the inclusion of the prestige class I guess the one thing I did not like about 3rd edition was that the bard, ranger, druid etc were kept as basic classess as opposed to being turned into prestige classes

    You re this mousy character with animal friends who has to help a cliche party of adventurers get their castle back But there are several surprises along the way and it all builds up to a climax that varies depending on the choices you made.
