Another of the Fighting Fantasy series, this one written by Steve Jackson the American contributor rather than Steve Jackson the originator of the series. The hook of DEMONS OF THE DEEP is that the entire adventure is set beneath the ocean depths, with the hero finding himself with a pair of gills thanks to a magic spell.

The novelty value of the undersea kingdom makes for some fun encounters with various denizens of the deep, including octopii, barracuda, sharks, dolphins, and the us

This was my first "Choose-your-fantasy" novels and I loved it. I found it at a library book sale, I think I was in middle school. When faced with a battle in the book, I kept choosing to win, or successfully swim away from combat situations, hahah! I should play with some dice or flip a coin to decide outcomes of confrontations- it might make the game that much more interesting :)

An adventure under the sea
15 July 2012

Well, Steve Jackson (2) or, as he is otherwise called, Steve Jackson (US), has returned to the Fighting Fantasy genre with another adventure, this time set under the sea. You are, or where, the captain of a ship, that is until it is attacked by pirates, all of your crew put to the sword, and you are thrown into the ocean, I suspect, as a way of 'walking the plank'. However, as it turns out, you don't drown because you find yourself in a magical

Set all under the sea and has some great illustrations but far too easy as I completed on my second attempt!
