    HACK SLASHPut on those stained sweats Forget about showering Grab this book and head to your mom s basement, because it s time for some D D TSR Hobbies decided to create their own line of Choose Your Own Adventure styled books in support of their shiny, new and very popular role playing game Dungeons Dragons Thus was born the Endless Quest books, one of my favorite series to read as a kid.Fantasy writer Rose Estes got the nod to kick it all off Rose EstesI don t know what Rose EstesHACK SLASHPut on those stained sweats Forget about showering Grab this book and head to your mom s basement, because it s time for some DD TSR Hobbies decided to create their own line of Choose Your Own Adventure styled books in support of their shiny, new and very popular role playing game Dungeons Dragons Thus was born the Endless Quest books, one of my favorite series to read as a kid.Fantasy writer Rose Estes got the nod to kick it all off Rose EstesI don t know what Rose Estes looks like, but a Google image search brings this up as one of the first pics, so I have to assume it s her She began by modeling this first book, Dungeon of Dread to be as much like DD as was practical It certainly does feel like the start to a new DD campaign You begin with a novice, ill equipped adventurer and dive right into a dungeon cave catacomb etc In this book you play the role of an average joe human warrior Before your first choice pops up, you are paired off with a halfling thief A typical DD party of adventurers would also include a wizard and priest But hey, you can t always get what you want.Now, I ve read enough of these CYOA books to be aware of their quality Meaning, I didn t expect this to be award winning literature However, this is poor to average writing at bestWell, halfling, can you give me one reason why I shouldn t feed you to the crows Oh please don t do that, whines the halfling, I m just a poor hungry halfling named Laurus Shakespeare it ain t And honestly, thank god, because I did not come here for the prose I came for adventure So let s get this party started Hollah This is when Turn Down For What would kick in and I would get totally skanky on the dance floor.ugh, I ve been to too many weddings Adventure 1I fought kobolds, a bugbear and ants hey, they were pretty big ants These are prototypical, entry level DD campaign sword fodder Not terribly exciting, but it s cool that they stayed so true to the game, considering how many other Endless Quest books would go right off the rails in this regard So anyway, this one ended with me being abandoned by the halfling and violently beat to death by an enraged minotaur This sucks I saved that good for nothing halfling from some pretty terrifying ants and this is how he repays me Okay buddy, I see how it is NEXT Adventure 2I followed the same path, but this time I didn t foolishly attack the minotaur I then ran into a manic depressive, alcoholic baboon who commits suicide by throwing himself upon my sword Heavy stuff, man I encountered that watery snake thing seen on the book s cover in a fairly cool action scene I should also mention, nice illustrations through out the book by Larry El and Jim Holloway I crushed a hill giant, which was rad Then I fought the main baddie, an evil wizard, and I won his treasure This is probably the best possible finish in this book, but I ll continue on to see what other adventures Dungeon of Dread has to offer Adventure 3I fell down a hole and had encounters with orcs and goblins I got stabbed once Game Over Wow, this book really is sticking to the basics of what it s like to play DD from the ground level sometimes it sucked.Adventure 4I bested a dumb ogre and stole his treasure Adventure 5Took a completely different path to the evil wizard, but with the same resultVICTORY To sum up, this was a good start to the series If you never played DD and want to get a taste of what it was like, read this bookfor an entire weekend without bathing, very little sleep, with nothingnutritious to eat than Doritos and Mountain Dew, while surrounded by a bunch of smelly, spotty, awkward teen boys

    The original Dungeons Dragons Choose Your Own adventure18 June 2012 Well TSR was going to release their own Choose Your Own Adventure style book based on the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game sooner or later, and it appears from the publication date that it was only three years after the release of the original books that they finally got in on the action However it appears that they did not release all that many well, okay 49 books at least is probably a lotthan not all that many The original Dungeons Dragons Choose Your Own adventure18 June 2012 Well TSR was going to release their own Choose Your Own Adventure style book based on the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game sooner or later, and it appears from the publication date that it was only three years after the release of the original books that they finally got in on the action However it appears that they did not release all that many well, okay 49 books at least is probably a lotthan not all that many, so I stand corrected and as far as I know I only read about four of them, and probably owned less I would hardly say that we were a poor family, rather my parents tended to be very discerning with the way they spent their money, which basically meant that I had to rely upon borrowing books from the library Personally I cannot say much about the rest of the series, and as such because I never actually read all that many so it is difficult to compare However, as I mentioned above, sooner or later TSR the original publishers of Dungeons and Dragons was going to jump on the bandwagon, particularly since they had a ready made audience looking for ways to continue the Dungeons and Dragons experience outside of the regular game session However, I have also noticed that they never went down to road of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, but that is probably because the simplicity of the Fighting Fantasy rules meant that it would not be able to compete with the complexity of the Dungeons and Dragons rules From what I remember and what I have noted from other people s comments, this was probably one of the better of the Endless Quest books since it managed to recreate the dungeon crawl experience much better than the others I remember the water elemental, and a yearning to transfer this story from the book and into the game because, well, it was one of the good ones Personally I cannot remember much about the book itself, or the story that it followed, but I can say one thing from memory, I did like it, especially with the Water Weird One thing that I have noticed is that the generic Choose Your Own adventures use a young adult teenage boy or girl that pretty much happens to be you It is you who are going on this adventure, and it is you that is experiencing the thrill However the Endless Quest series puts you in the shoes of somebody else You are Caric, and you are a seasoned adventurer, and you are an adult Not only that but you also have some travelling companions of sorts and it appears that you are the one whom they look up to and follow You make the decisions, and they just follow along behind Obviously these characters are not nearly as flexible as a party of adventurers in a table top game, or even a group in some fantasy novel, but at least they are there In a way it is a shame that I did not get to readof them, but then again, that is life Oh, and even though Jason Koivu s rendition of Rose Estes is really cool, this is the Rose Estes who wrote the book

    I have always felt that this, the first of the Endless Quest series published by TSR, was the best of them It most closely simulated the experience of a tabletop D D adventure, and distinguished itself by not following the conventions ofgeneric choose your own adventure spin offs Unfortunately, later books in the series didn t remain at this standard, and within a dozen or so were simply fantasy themed variations on the usual.One thing that sets Dungeon of Dread apart was the chara I have always felt that this, the first of the Endless Quest series published by TSR, was the best of them It most closely simulated the experience of a tabletop DD adventure, and distinguished itself by not following the conventions ofgeneric choose your own adventure spin offs Unfortunately, later books in the series didn t remain at this standard, and within a dozen or so were simply fantasy themed variations on the usual.One thing that sets Dungeon of Dread apart was the character you played Most choose your own adventures, targeted at young adult boys, predictably have you play a young adult boy or sometimes girl What was always special about DD for me was pretending to be someone not at all like my real self an adult who handled adult problems with adult skills This book is the only one in the series that I know of which lets you play a somewhat experienced grown up fighter, instead of a young kid on his first adventure You even get to lead a party of sorts, as you have a halfling thief for a sidekick.Another thing is that it was pretty unequivocal about being a dungeon slog I suppose people get tired of that sort of thing, and it is somewhat of a limited format, but for me it works pretty well The choices are clear do you fight or run away, turn left or turn right, etc It s possible to write it so that there sthan one way to success, and this book at least takes some advantage of that You meet an interesting array of familiar DD monsters and also some monsters that seem a bitunusualwhich are really hints to the plot The familiar ones give you a chance to use your knowledge is an Orc too strong for this party How about a Troll Or a Minotaur but sometimes there is a cunning way to subdue something that would normally be too strong to take on directly It holds up to multiple readings, as you explore the dungeon and see what monsters you missed the first time through, but not infinitely, because there are really only a limited number of options that don t get you killed At some point you know your way through the dungeon too well, and the book is just a memento of adventures past Still, it s a good example of what it is, and I regret that TSR didn t model the rest of the series on its example

    Fun to revisit this one after several decades This one stands out from the typical Choose Your Own Adventure format in that you play as an adventurer, and engage in a rather interesting dungeon delve That was heady stuff for me back in the day, and some of the ideas are still fun and usable in D D Fun to revisit this one after several decades This one stands out from the typical Choose Your Own Adventure format in that you play as an adventurer, and engage in a rather interesting dungeon delve That was heady stuff for me back in the day, and some of the ideas are still fun and usable in DD
