Dare YOU enter Blacksand?

Sprawling like the corpse of some giant creature, Port Blacksand is a festering den of pirates and brigands. Unforeseen dangers lurk around every street corner and in every dark alleyway. Devious plots and crimes are hatched in every tavern. Thieves and assassins slip through the shadows. Ancient mysteries lurk in the cellars and sewers. But the infamous City of Thieves is also home to excitement and adventure beyond compare!

Now Advanced Fighting Fantasy allow YOU to enter the City of Thieves. As the game's director, you can guide your heroic friends through dozens of nerve-shattering adventures. Alternatively, as a courageous Hero you can seek your fortune in the City's labyrinth of thief-infested back-streets.

Blacksand! is the second volume in the Advanced Fighting Fantasy series which started with Dungeoneer. Many new rules and adventures are included, expanding your games into the dangerous city-states of Allansia.

Written by Marc Gascoigne and Pete Tamlyn.
