This miniseries was created by Steve Jackson (II) in 1984-1985 and consists of 4 gamebooks in the classic Fighting Fantasy style. Your mission is to recover the legendary Crown of Kings from an evil Archmage hiding in Mampang Fortress.
The quest is truly epic in scope with all of the books being longer than the usual 400 sections. You can also carry over your character from one book to the next. Even though the books can be played as stand-alone adventures, actions from one book can influence situations in subsequent books.
Additionally, you choose whether to play as a Warrior or a Wizard. The Warrior plays in the same way as usual Fighting Fantasy characters, but the Wizard, though physically weaker, has the options of using spells as well. These must be memorized before the adventure and are referred to throughout by 3-letter codes.
The four entries in the series, in order, are:
The four entries also have been 'ported' as gamebook apps by Inkle Studios:
