Description Edit | History

User Summary:

Reiter der schwarzen Sonne is a massive German gamebook by Swen Harder that sports over 1350 sections. The book won a RPC Fantasy Jury Award 2013.

Alongside the regular editions (first printing 2012, revised and slightly expanded 2013), Mantikore published special editions which bundled the book with a 20-page booklet Die Geheimnisse von Reiter der schwarzen Sonne, folded color map, poster and bookmarks in a slipcase. The first special edition was limited to 111 copies. The second special edition included a soundtrack: 10 tracks composed by Sven Mencke for Reiter der schwarzen Sonne.

Publisher Blurb:

Du bist ein Ugarith, ein Meister der Nacht, der ohne Erinnerung an Herkunft und Vergangenheit nach der Ausübung einer ver­hängnisvollen Bluttat erwacht. Geächtet und verfolgt musst du dir fortan den Weg in die Freiheit erkämpfen, deine über­menschlichen Kräfte ergründen, um schließlich deine heilige Pflicht - die Begradigung des Weltenflusses - zu erfüllen...

Ob das Schicksal des Ugarith zu einem glücklichen, neutralen oder düsteren Ende gelangt, hängt jedoch einzig von deinen Entscheidungen ab - denn dies ist kein gewöhnlicher Roman, sondern ein Fantasy-Spielbuch!

Reiter der schwarzen Sonne ist mit mehr als 1.350 Sektionen das größte jemals veröffentlichte Spielbuch und setzt durch seinen innovativen Umgang mit Sektionsverweisen und hohen Wieder­spielwert neue Maßstäbe für das Genre. Besonders charakteristisch sind das Finden versteckter Bonussektionen, Endgegnerkämpfe im eigenen, ausführlichen Kampfkapitel und das Lösen komplexer Rätsel.

Publisher Blurb (User Translation)

You're an Ugarith, a master of the night, waking up with no memory of your origin and history after causing a terrible bloodbath. Outlawed and persecuted you have to fight for yourself and your freedom, explore your superhuman powers, and finally fulfil your sacred duty: the straightening of the world river...

Whether the fate of the Ugarith comes to a happy, neutral or dark end, however, depends only on your decisions - because this is no ordinary novel, but a fantasy gamebook!

Reiter der schwarzen Sonne (Rider of the Black Sun) is the biggest gamebook ever published with more than 1,350 sections, and by its innovative use of section references and high replay value it sets new standards for the genre. Especially characteristic are hidden bonus sections, boss battles in its own extensive combat chapter, and solving complex puzzles.
