Lords of Stone - Sneak Peek
Here's a sneak peek at the art and text of the next mini adventure in issue #15...
Standing before one of them is MOR ORTHOR, the target of your quest. He stands close to two metres tall and is clothed in tight-fitting black leather. Sparking yellow eyes stare at you from out of a dark, gaunt face. A purple cloak hangs from his shoulders and he carries a long staff topped with a glittering crystal.
This is Lords of Stone, the Fighting Fantasy mini adventure, written and illustrated by Brett Schofield.
A terrible evil is growing deep beneath the Iron Hills!Mor Orthor, a wicked Dark Elf sorcerer, is experimenting with the four elemental powers of earth, air, fire and water. Once he has mastered them all he will become unstoppable. The good Dwarfs of nearby Stonebridge have called upon your help once more. YOU must venture into the Iron Hills - armed only with your trusty sword and a handful of powerful Elemental Runestones - and put an end to the sorcerer before his vile experiments are let loose on the world!

Return to the Icefinger Mountains - Sneak Peek
Here's a sneak peek from the art and text of the mini adventure for issue #9.
This is Return to the Icefinger Mountains by Ed Jolley and illustrated by Brett Schofield:Even worse is what you see on the floor in front of him. A final message, written by repeatedly dipping the tip of his right foot in the blood that has puddled on the floor beneath him. Though smudged and smeared, the letters are still clear enough to make out, spelling out the dread warning, ‘SHE WILL RETURN’...
Thirty years ago the Snow Witch was preparing to unleash an ice age upon Titan when her plans were thwarted by a wandering adventurer. YOU were one of the slaves freed in the wake of her defeat, and have lived a quiet life since then. But when the horrors of your past start to catch up with you again, you must go back to the caves from which you escaped. Can the Snow Witch really be returning? And if so, do you have what it takes to stop her?
Coming Soon - Issue 9 Cover
Here's the cover for the next issue, done by the talented Brett Schofield. Brett is also doing the interior artwork for the mini adventure this issue, Ed Jolley's Return to the Icefinger Mountains. As you can see from the cover there are other items of interest within the pages of the issue, but I'll cover the contents properly in a later post.
Turn to Paragraph 400 - Sneak Peek
Time for another sneak peek, this time from the second half of the survey results. This time around we look at the mini adventures, the role-playing game and Advanced Fighting Fantasy, the novels and other materials, as well as learning your favourite pieces of cover and interior art. The results also cover favourite villain, favourite creature, favourite artist and writer.
There is also "most wanted reprint" (which out of print do you most want back in circulation), "most wanted author" (who you'd like to see pen the next new title), and a list of writers you'd love to see write for the series. We round that part out with where in Titan you'd like to see the next book set, and which genres you like beyond fantasy.
We also asked about the magazine itself (and you had the first 3 issues to vote on). We learnt your favourite feature and the image at the top of the post was voted your favourite piece of fan art. It is from the mini adventure Shrine of the Salamander in issue #2 and the artwork was by Brett Schofield. Congratulations Brett!
Finally, the results round out with what you'd like to see in future issues and who was voted "most important contributor" to the Fighting Fantasy range.
Get a hold of a copy of issue #6 when it is published to find out all the results...
