We proudly announce our second book in the Gamebook Adventures fantasy series, The Siege of the Necromancer! Set in the coastal town of Myr, you have returned home after a long Summer in the mines of Durath Tor to find your hometown besieged by strange creatures. A dark presence has taken over the town and you are the only one who can rid the stronghold of Erid Buul, the mysterious new Lord and his ghastly cohorts.

  • Newly written fantasy adventure story containing magic, monsters and mystery. We are not simply a re-print of old gamebooks with each GA story lovingly crafted by experienced gamebook authors.
  • Easy to use interface with classic page turning. As easy as reading a book!
  • Dynamic page links that respond to your situation.
  • New gamebook rules and battle system unique to Gamebook Adventures. Rules are accessible at any time during the adventure if you need to refresh yourself.
  • Real-time 3D dice rolling with realistic physics. Shake the device like a dice shaker and watch the 3D dice bounce around the scene and off each other. Stop shaking and the dice will land giving you a result. Want to speed up dice rolls? Then use our fast Quick Dice feature!
  • Easy to change fonts, font sizes, and paper type to set up the book the way you want it.
  • Accessible character sheet at all times during reading which auto updates when you pick up an item, your stats change, or you gain valuable information to help in your quest.
  • Use bookmarks to save your progress helping you get past tricky sections.
  • Achievements to collect throughout the book for those who wish to thoroughly explore all aspects of the story. With more achievements than the first book!
  • Beautifully illustrated by Dan Maxwell. With twice as many images to find than the first gamebook! Once found, each illustration is framed and mounted on the achievements wall so they can be accessed full-screen!
  • Keep informed as the land of Orlandes grows. “Orlandes Uncovered” is a detailed history of the fantasy setting and will be updated at regular intervals giving you a rich and rewarding overall experience with the gamebooks.
  • Interactive world map which can be zoomed and scrolled. This will also be updated regularly as the details about the world unfold and expand.
