Set within Orlandes City itself, nobles are being systematically murdered by a ruthless assassin no-one seems able to catch. Finding yourself thrust in the middle of a large conspiracy, you must make decisions that may put yourself and one other most precious to you in great danger. Can you locate the Assassin in Orlandes before it is too late?


An Assassin in Orlandes is the first game in the Gamebook Adventure series. It is a completely original adventure written by S.P. Osborne, set in the fantasy world of Orlandes. Early drafts of the story were a detective adventure, but this was revised due to limited replayability. The intrigue of the murder investigation stuck, however, and the gamebook evolved into a fantasy setting, which became An Assassin in Orlandes.
