The Fighting Fantasy 10th Anniversary Yearbook is a yearbook that was designed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Fighting Fantasy series in August 1992 as well as be a calendar for the year 1993. It was compiled and edited by Marc Gascoigne[1], illustrated by various artists and published by Puffin Books in 1992 (ISBN 0-14-036290-8). Due to the anniversary nature of this title and the 1993 calendar, it is unlikely that this book will ever be republished.

Introduction[]

The Titan Calendar[]

Mini-FF[]

Main article: Rogue Mage

The book contains a reprinting of Rogue Mage by Graeme Davis from Warlock magazine issue 10. The adventure is spread out amongst the whole book, with the "Introduction", instructions and Adventure Sheet on pages 13 through to 21. Then from page 23 through to page 224 there is one reference from the adventure at the bottom of most (but not all) pages.1

NOTES

  1. Oddly paragraph 105 is hidden at the top of the page on the same page as 106 and is not within the illustration of a piece of parchment, making it easy to overlook.

Much of the art was reproduced from various Fighting Fantasy gamebooks:

Further Notes[]

August relates, under "Notable Anniversaries in Watching" the story of brothers Baron Sukumvit and Lord Carnuss. It's stated that Baron Sukumvit inaugurated the yearly Trial of Champions on his fortieth birthday, and it has continued so. His birthday is later stated to be 21st August. But in the "Background" section in the Deathtrap Dungeon gamebook, the Trial of Champions is described as happening 1st of May every year.

Errors[]

  • (42) is linked from 13 sections, and yet gives the option to "return to 103".
