Hi Brimgeth,

here http://arion-games.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=476 you can find the proposal that I recently made at a play by post game.

I think that the most "iconic / signature" one is the Rhinoman, as you can't find any other Rhinoman (or similar) in any other setting.

I just recently discovered that FF gamebooks actually HAD a RPG system attached (AFF) and I'm now having a look around, but if Arion would be happy to host fan made adventures, I think I'll definitely go for it, sooner or later...

I'm not American, nor British (although I'm European...) and I can see a "kind" of dark, gritty tone in FF, with characters never really becoming "superheroes" or overpowered compared to the world around them, with, basically, no resurrections, or super powerful spells, while in D&D you can literall...

Very personally, I think that the familiarity issue is a double-edged sword: it helps attracting some player that has fond memories of the gamebooks (like me...), but then if you propose only gamebooks conversions it may turn out to be something "already done"... Best strategy could be proposing a m...
