If you ever liked gamebooks then be prepared for the next step with this bundle. I, probably the same as you, have tried so many of them that promised a lot but delivered the same old stuff with a few twists, not nearly enough to consider them an evolution of the genre. Maybe just good as an ephemeral antydote for nostalgia and nothing more.
But oh boy, here comes Paul Bimler, master of the solo systems, to finnally discover El Dorado. This is the closest you are going to be to playing D&D by yourself and feeling like good old group RPGing. Not even tabletop games that try to mimic them get near it. The first of the series, "The Death Knight Squire", is just a testing ground, a small appetizer for the real thing. The system just gets better and better, and you just start leveling your character and developing his story and even roleplaying him! All just by yourself. Mix a very fine writing quality with some really innovative and creative mechanics and voilá. Potion of FUN.
Get yourself some tokens (I even homemade my own just for this games), print out those maps and get ready for some epic role playing adventures. Finnally possible without a DM. This time, for real.
