Scorpion Swamp

(The eighth book in the Fighting Fantasy series)
A Game Book by

Hardy adventurer that you are, you haven't ever been known to quail at a little danger. But you're no fool. You've always been far too wise to risk entering the dreaded Scorpion Swamp, infamous for the tangle of treacherous paths which criss-cross its slimy depths. The creatures that live in Scorpion Swamp have given rise to the most nightmarish legends. But now Scorpion Swamp holds out the lure of treasure and glory - and the choice of serving three wizards, each with a mission. YOU cannot resist the challenge! Two dice, a pencil and an eraser are all you need to embark on this thrilling adventure of sword and sorcery, complete with its elaborate combat system and a score sheet to record your gains and losses. Many dangers lie ahead and your success is by no means certain. Powerful adversaries are ranged against you and often your only choice is to kill or be killed!
