Free on-line "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories

By stevea68 | SteveA | 9 Feb 2021

There's a website that has many choose-your-own-adventure stories similar to books where you read what events are happening and have choices of what you want to do and then turn to a page or section number to discover the result.

This website is based upon the "Fighting Fantasy" series of books, which uses 2 dice for rolls and allows for the character to have items in inventory or gain clues that can change the result of what happens at a location, though the stories at are varied and some are based upon more modern themes (i.e. going to a dance festival).

For a quite simple and short, though tricky to win adventure here's a sample Lair Of The Trogolodyte but one very lengthy and involved is the A Shadow In The North series ( ).  It spans 3 different modules / books on the website and statistics and inventory items can be taken with you from each module to the next.  I cheat a bit and copy the url address at various points to act as save game locations.  You can also try the same story but make different choices and see how things unfold.

Another set of modules that can be played end to end and has a rather crazy science fiction theme is: Wrong Way Go Back and the Tales from Bird Island is another quite lengthy and fun adventure.

Enjoy your gaming.

I'm a semi-retired engineer looking for some ways of earning a little on the side and using cryptocurrencies seems like a good way of doing it :)


I'm limited to 510 characters for a description, so I'll waste a few making that comment. What else? There's a ton - are Big Bang and Cyclic Universe theories logical illusions? What forms of mathematics create beauty? Coffee, tea or a chocolate bar? ... or maybe what would an ideal partnership with someone be like? I'm both a "couch surfer" and explorer ... where might you like to go? I'm wishing us all the best.
