‘Over the Blood Dark Sea’ is set in the vast oceanic area centrally located between the various land masses of the world of Fabled Lands. As such it is a lot more naval orientated than the rest of the series, which, more often than not, are basically land based adventures with some coastal activity. This means that the reader spends most of their time in the company of their ship’s crew and that there isn’t so much solo adventuring.

The gameplay essentially involves sailing around a three dimensional environment experiencing chance encounters and visiting various islands or the odd coastal settlement. Of course you can travel around without your own vessel by taking passage on various ships. But this method is very restrictive and not recommended if you want to enjoy and appreciate everything the adventure has to offer. The gameplay is very explorative and there is a lot of freedom in decision and movement; perhaps more than the other Fabled Lands books. This all gives it a certain originality. On the negative side though, there is the likelihood that you can be sailing around in circles for hours, especially if you’re trying to find a certain thing. It is also quite tricky at times to orientate yourself and navigate.

In comparison to the first two Fabled Lands books there isn’t really a great deal of side quests to participate in. Even the long awaited (if you did particular things in ‘The War Torn Kingdom’) clash with Amcha, the pirate king, is a bit anticlimactic.
The islands are quite few and far between and, annoyingly, some of the trickiest tasks to overcome on the islands just end up ‘teleporting’ you somewhere random if you successful. The island with perhaps the most to do is Dweomer where you can attend a wizard school and procure your own college room.

The Fabled Lands series of gamebooks is arguably the finest series to ever grace the genre. Not only is there the continuity of play you would get with other gamebook series, like Lone Wolf, but by combining this book with the other Fabled Lands books you get unparalleled freedom to explore a vast world. Couple this with the evocative prose with which Dave Morris excels, and you have a compelling and immersive adventure on your hands!

The Fabled Lands series is not just for the nostalgic shopper who remembers with fond reverence the many hours spent lost in these pages, but should be considered by anyone with a fondness for creative and immersive fantasy.

This book, and the Fabled Lands series as a whole, is impossible to recommend highly enough.

Book 3 of the Fabled Lands series... BUT YOU CAN START IN THIS ONE! And there are certain quests that you can ONLY get if you do start here. Links to the other books as well.

Welcome to the Violet Ocean, home of pirates, sorcerors, mysterious islands and in the far south the exotic port of Smogmaw! It's not a safe place so bring your Blessings and your Resurrection Deal with you as you set sail for adventure, trade and discovery. Great encounters, and the central book of all the published ones (go north to Book 1, north-west to book 2, east to book 6, south to book 7 (coming soon via KickStarter!).

I love this book: perhaps most of all in the series. The scene setting is excellent and the challenges great. It is a challenging book to commence your adventures in but starting shipwrecked, bedraggled and absolutely lost is a great draw on the imagination.

Have the original releases of all of these books and they are nothing short of phenomenal. Collect all the books and you have a fantasy world of gigantic proportions and amazing depth. There are many different classes and quests as well as huge areas to explore ships to buy and many ports to trade at. Set up a stall in Aku market or join the ranks of the nobility, kill dragons and many other monsters. Use magic, charisma and a variety of other skill to achieve your goals.

The books are written in such a way that you imagination can really take over and fill in the details of the world so the adventures will be unique for everyone. I first played these books when they were first released back in the mid nineties and over the years I have gone back and played them many times over as have my siblings. The books are well worn from use and I will be purchasing them now for a second time and all going well the full series will be published this time.

I can highly recommend these book for anyone who likes RPG games, and if you've tried games books before start here with the very pinnacle of the genre.
