Well the lone wolf series from project.aon have been allowed an online publication by their author, ---- and indeed there are already some automated players for the books, --- though none are accessible, sinse they either use silverlight or dodgy java.

For ameter books though, arborell is a good place to start, sinse it hosts many ameter books now, ---- as well as the arborell books themselves which are some of the most fantastic I've ever played, and are part of one of the best constructed fantasy worlds and stories I've seen.

There are also several others I can think of too if your interested, ---- though I'm very much planning to add more gamebooks to the database on www.audiogames.nett, ---- even including those which are just the book files themselves with no added playing software to handle stats, dice etc.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

I will have to check out those amatuer books. It has been a few years since I went thru a adventure book. I think the ones I played recently were the ones with lonewolf which were pretty good.

Well alan, currently I'm attempting to contact the publishers of the series to see if accessible versions of the books could be sold.

I'm having very litle luck though.

There are certainly plenty of ameter books though available using the ff rules who's authors may welcome this sort of developement, ---- and more being written all the time (chronicles of arborell is now running an anual competition for such things).

As far as the literal original series, ---- by steve jaxon and Ian livingston go, ---- well if my efforts to contact the publishers continue to fail, ---- well it would! be a shame if these books were made accessible wouldn't it, ---- afterall blind people should buy inaccessible print paper originals shouldn't they!

I'm sure if the publishers heard of such a circumstance they'd be most irritated, ---- but the internet is a very big place, and many things go on which legitimate businesses do not know about.

i won't tell them if you wont!

Btw, please! let's not open the piracy debate again, ---- this is a matter of accessibility afterall.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

That's true. I think it is pretty cheap though to buy. I was just wondering if it would be feasible to do, but Dark said that taking the books themselves would not be legal but using their battle system should work. I am gonna sit down with the thing soon and see what it can really do.

Hi all,
I was wondering if
translating the fighting fantasy gamebooks and similar products to be used in the quest text adventure creater would be legal or not. I think it could be possible, although I have to sit down and mess with the thing for a while
to get a better idea.
