This is really such value for money that I have never seen.

I really appreciate a 2-part solo adventure within one work, it feels like 2 separate experiences to enjoy together.

I actually like the linear progression of encounter numbers for once, especially after years of gamebook adventures in which every entry is given a random, forgettable number.

I also find the brown / red descriptive text a pleasantly nostalgic surprise, for I once had a core rulebook printed out in that colour, and that left an indelibly unusual gaming experience that remains almost visceral since.

Once again, the Chronicles of Arax scores with me, by providing a simple but nutritious pampering for the all-too-often overlooked genre of solo story gaming.

The Dark Citadel is the sort of adventure that it's pretty easy to lose yourself in. There's a good lot of decent play here.

The stuff is all well described, well written, and very well thought out, with a setting that feels right without making you obsess over details (though it has enough imagery to cause you to conjure a scene in your mind).

If you want a quick game for Chronicles of Arax, look no further.

Another fun quest in two parts (2 x 20 paragraphs). The only thing I miss is a dedicated Artifacts and Relics table.

A very nice game you can play practically everywhere.

The quest is well done, and the mechanism of the codewords good.
I'll love to see a personalized loot table for every adventure: finding a cool particular item can drive me to play one quest instead than another one.
For the price, it deserves a solid 5/5.

This is a pretty fun adventure, it is composed of two different twenty part quest and both are pretty fun in how they are put together, I liked the first part a little better as it was more of an overland quest than anything. Neither seems to have a "lost all equipment" or "monster vastly superior to you sitting around to kill you" for you to land on either.

My only issue is that there wasn't any new artifacts to roll for on the adventure, what this means is that I kept rolling on items I had already received from the first adventure and when I got an encounter telling me to roll again I wasn't too excited about it.
