Valkyrie - Freagarthach

Valkyrie - Jeopardy-based solo or team gamebook:

  • Very visual
  • Familiar RPG mechanics but far from easy
  • Replay repeatedly without the same results

Freagarthach is a solo or multi-player roleplaying gamebook, which uses familiar tabletop game mechanics to deliver a largely visual adventure.

You are able to transport yourself into the Otherworld when struck by lightning. Once there your skills are enhanced, including magical powers and the ability to use your mind to act on others.

Your task in this adventure is to journey through the Otherworld to free a supernatural ally from imprisonment by a fearsome dragon. At the outset you will meet your ally, who is in urgent need of your help.

If you can defeat the dragon, you can free your friend by rolling two magical dice, which are enchanted to trap your friend until a different number is rolled.

Success depends on making the best possible use of your skills, taking calculated risks and a certain amount of good luck.

Play to compete with yourself or play to compete with friends - either way the adventure can be played hundreds of times without revealing quite the same story.
