Fabled Lands is a series of interconnecting fantasy gamebooks designed for solo play.
The unique system used by the Fabled Lands books allowed for more freedom of movement between locations as compared to the more linear style common to other gamebooks. Fabled Lands also provided for special events, encounters, and other opportunities to be tracked or initiated through the use of checkmark boxes and codewords. The overall effect made for a rich and detailed experience compared to the typical fantasy solo gamebook.
Unfortunately, only 7 books are published out of the 12 planned for the series, leaving the world of the Fabled Lands incomplete. In the United States, the books were released under the name Quest.
All six books are being re-released starting in December 2010. The authors have indicated that if these sell well, they will be able to complete the entire twelve-book series.
The first six books are available to play through freely downloadable software available here.
