Long dark twisting streets where thieves vagabonds and creatures of the night lie in wait to trap the unwary traveller Beyond lies the most fearsome adventure of them all – the tower stronghold of the infamous Zanbar BonePart. A superb gamebook Port Blacksand the titular city of thieves is a fascinating place for exploration and skullduggery It comes across as a well developed coherent environment uite amazing for such an early entrant into the series It is so well developed and ceaselessly entertaining that it shames those that came before and most of those that came afterThis is one of the few Fighting Fantasy books where it s uite easy to find everything you need for a successful completion as long as you explore thoroughly Though having said that there s one unwelcome instance where if you stop to do one thing the book doesn t then allow you the chance to duck down a side alley you had noticed a moment before This isn t an issue with most other encounters and since this alley leads to one of the needed items it s an unfair ployThe exploration of the city is also pretty balanced Even someone with mediocre scores would find the encounters fair and there s plenty of healing to be found and opportunities to restore LuckWhen you leave the city and travel toward the tower of Zanbar Bone for the climax the difficulty suddenly and drastically spikes and anyone with a Skill score less than 11 need not bother as you ll never get through This doesn t wash The worst idea in the book and possibly in any FF book ever comes right at the very end where you have to make a choice out of three You re given no clues it s simply a case of eeny meeny miney mo and if you choose wrong you re dead So you ve trawled all the way through the book to find you have a totally random 2 in 3 chance of failing for no fault of your own Bollocks to thatI ve still awarded 5 stars because Port Blacksand itself is so intriguing and evocative and the bulk of the book is magnificent the very best a gamebook can be But the ending sucks gorilla balls
