    A comic that parodies roleplaying.

    It presents the characters in the story as stereotypes of your standard players for humor, often taking them to extremes for the sake of the joke.

    Oh christ, I remember a trap like that in Fighting Fantasy book 6: Deathtrap Dungeon.
    Except it was emerald eyes of a giant golden buddha.
    Anyway, first you need a rope to make your way to the top (or risk instant death if you flub the Skill check).
    Then you need to fight off two average enemies, at a Skill defecit due to narrow ground (you're standing on the Buddha's shoulder and you can't move).
    Then it asks you which eye you are going to pry out first.
    One is safe. The other will hit you with knockout gas, sending you plumetting to a hard floor and a broken neck.

    The rub?
    The 'safe' emerald has no hints that it's the safe one AND it's a necessary item to complete the module, not that you know this until like two thirds of the way through, by which two of the three gems have already passed you (the Emerald and the Diamond).
    It's literally a 50/50 "Guess right and you have a quest item, guess wrong and you die instantly".

    It's actually one of my least-favorite Fighting Fantasy books. Too much combat, too many luck-puzzles, not enough thinking-puzzles.

    I'd recommend #48 Moonrunner, where you play a Bounty Hunter (it has the Skill System that later games used for flavour); it has a horror theme to it and has just the right blend of fighting and puzzling.
    Or #40 Dead Of Night, which is more-fighting-less-puzzling, but your character is a Paladin and you have to strike a balance between pragmatism and being Lawful Good.

    I actually have a relatively large collection of FF books, which is pretty good given that most of them went out of print ten years before I was born.

    Sorry. I wasn't aware people would care enough for the actual comic, as the majority of it isn't /tg/-related. It's just about a variety of adventures, like bringing hookers back from the dead and turning them into robo-hookers for fun and profit.

    Best bet is ordering online or hitting up second-hand bookstores - virtually ALL OF MINE are from second-hand stores, and I'm fortunate that every year there is a 2nd-hand-book market type thing in the middle of town, plus I live like 15 minutes walk away from the Bazaar, which has an entire backroom dedicated to second-hand books.

    Now, some of these have actually recieved modern reprints (starting with The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, which was the first), but I suggest you STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM THEM (barring that one) because all of them use a copypasta of the original rules with whatever "Special" versions (i.e. Skill System) tagged onto them.

    This is an issue with some books like #25 Sword of the Samurai (reprint pictured - note that it lacks the green section across the top), because changing what you rolled for Stamina and Skill (the two stats) and the number of starting provisions was the primary way of modifying the difficulty of the book.
    This is not retained in the reprints (as those sections are copypasta'd from the first book instead of their actual book), resulting in some reprint books being too hard or too easy.

    I think the ones I always remember:
    1. Exit Door of the cityport kills you if you don't know the right sequence
    2. You get stuck in part of the jungle (the paragraphs just send you round & round.. or you die to invisible tigers)
    3. the Time Serpents kills you by moving faster than you can even see... You must solve a picture puzzle at a different part of the book to know which paragraph to turn to when you meet the time serpent.

    For ordering online? Not a one, but you could try the Steve Jackson Games website, if it's still up.
    You might also like the Way of the Tiger books; they're essentially wuxia turned into gamebooks, and they actually reward you for -acting like a fucking ninja- (guy too good to take on hand-to-hand? creep into his roof and poison the fucker).

    They're available on Home Of The Underdogs in PDF format, IIRC.

    #24 Creature of Havoc does this as well - there's a dungeon section where a Dark Elf has a whistle that summons Skill 7 Stamina 8 Chaos Warriors. It loops you through four sections indefinitely until you eventually lose (7-12 is your skill; combat is both roll 2d6+Skill, loser takes 2 damage - because in Creature of Havoc you are monstrous and have scales, you only take 1, which is nice because Creature is VERY nasty with traps and has lots of combat. Anyway, you will eventually die).

    This one is available in Horrible Reprint form as well, with the front cover being the Devourer, one of the first monsters you fight, instead of Zharradan Marr, the BBEG.

    The last two places I lived in were crawling with garden wolf spiders- fairly harmless, don't make webs everywhere and are docile. They also eat roaches and other bugs so they're good to keep around.

    They do bite apparently, but I've teased the shit out of them before and I haven't seen one look like it wanted to bite me.

    Yeah, we like to joke about it, but unless you're walking around in the bush and being a 'tard, you're not likely to get gibbed by our variously venomous fauna. And flora, come to think of it, like that stinging tree thing that is the most scary plant ever.

    Unless you live in hill country, the only dangerous part of California's mudslide season is the fuckwit drivers who never see rain for the rest of the year.
    That said, my friend's car got swept by a slide two weeks ago. Almost went over a cliff, so he over-compensated and flipped his car off a hillside. Funny part is, he probably could have completed the hill if there wasn't a huge rock in the way. Looking at the tracks afterwards, it reminded me of a hotwheels stunt.

    Bingo. Platypi aren't carnivores of large creatures, so having deadly venom is a bit of a waste for them. It just hurts so bad you feel like you're going out of your fucking mind.

    For a city that ranks so highly, being a bit of a hole is pretty odd. Then again, Australia.

    Compared to highly-urbanized fashion-center Melbourne, or cultural-center Sydney?
    Adelaide is a hole.

    Well, keep in mind Los Angeles. Excellent night life, so much to see, especially the Getty Villa, lots of history, and as many US citizens are killed there daily as US soldiers were getting killed daily at the height of the Iraq war.

    They have a thriving Post-Rock scene.

    Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, some of our best known cities are as deadly as any war zone, and we can't even blame it on wild animals.

    I visited there briefly, and being a musicfag I hit up a couple of local gigs, talked with the musicians, went to the music stores and chatted up a couple of people wearing band shirts on the bus.

    The consensus I got was "Godspeed You! Black Emporer Fuck YEAR!" and the bands seemed to be Indie favouring delaylong songs.

    ...along with a lot of Metalcore. But that's inevitable in Australia these days.

    Humans are animals. Some are wild regardless of the environment they grew up or live in. I mean, just look at black friday news about people getting trampled to death because the fat fuck behind them wanted that scarf that's now half a buck off.

    I know. It's the big underground thing in Australia at the moment. I live in WA and every third band playing at any decent rock/alt club is "Bleeding For My *Something*" and "Taking *chick's name* Life"

    Heh, I know. My own city has roughly the same murder rate as Chicago. And I live within a walk from the projects. Shit is hilarious.

    I remember watching a Doco on Australian music movements;
    >Rockabilly, muscle cars and distortion infused rock 'n' roll.
    Oh yeah, that's kind've alright I guess.
    >Goth, with all the costumes and makeup. All the music they played was Manson style Metalcore-ish crap.
    Well, they tried, I suppose. Give them props for covering such a universally despised genre by the general media
    >Melbourne Shuffle

    The scene is thriving. The individual bands will never attain anything other the fame associated with being part of a fad-scene.
