This is fantasy adventure with a difference: YOU are the hero! A pencil, an eraser and two dice are all you need to embark on your quest. Success and vast riches - or failure and savage death – will depend on the decisions you make.

Risks and challenges

Megara Entertainment has a solid experience of publishing Collector's hardback gamebooks, with already many released gamebooks and more soon. Therefore the risks are low for this project if we reach our goal.

Furthermore, Megara has already paid and commissioned Leo Hartas to colorize the 1984 original Temple of Flame black & white drawings.

We just need some additional time until May 2017 for Mark Lain to write the 100 additional sections under the supervision of Dave Morris, for Leo to draw the 5 additional illustrations (if the stretch goal have been met) and for Megara to complete the layout of this Collector's edition, then manufacture the books and ship them to the backers.

Please note that we have a small staff and we are managing several projects at a time, so we do our best but sometimes a delay can happen. In which case we always try to inform our backers the best we can about our progress anyway!
