Put a little effort on it and wrap up something that can be posted on this site as well, please :wink:

In my level thing thread, I was suggesting this adventure too! Temple of elemental evil is made for AFF!

Same thing, pretty much. The Sorcery! series of FF gamebooks has been adapted into the Crown of Kings RPG campaign. The campaign is named after the fourth and final Sorcery! gamebook.

The campaign's pretty good (my group start playing the final part tomorrow night) although it's possibly too faithful an adaptation of the gamebooks. Conversely there are also a few bits from the gamebooks that didn't get included in the adaptation for some reason (e.g. the Serpent Ring).
It's worth having a read of this thread for some useful perspective and things to take into account. I found it helpful when I was preparing to run the campaign as some seeds really need sown before the heroes set off on their quest.

I posted a summary of actual play from when my group went through the first part of the campaign - I make no claim to it being great (or even adequate) prose but it's here if you're interested.
While running the campaign I have: restored some gamebook elements that were dropped from the adaptation(this became more apparent in the second part of the campaign); fixed a few things that struck me as logical inconsistencies left over from the gamebook (e.g. Flanker is going to the same place as the PCs so it makes sense for him to accompany them); and put my own spin on other stuff (e.g. explicitly linking Flanker's men with the 'cave demon').

The campaign lets me bend and reshape it easily and without breaking. I like this.

Also there's the original wishing well scenario ( same map as in the AFF2 core rule book) but slightly different encounters and Shaggards hives of peril a longer dungeon crawl from the original FF introductory RPG plus death trap on legs from warlock magazine and another mini adventure also in Warlock magazine involving a stone circle (sorry can't remember what it's called will try to find it in my warlock collection. One final FF adventure was written in white dwarf called beyond the shadow of a dream. :)
