Bwahahaha at the title. Yucks at everything else.
The real trouble is the presence of crappy gamebooks like this one.
It’s not bad at all, for a gamebook by RA Montgomery.
Yes, “lost” is definitely the operative word here.
Even for a gamebook from this guy, this one is so random and pointless that it’s almost horrifying.

This is an interesting campaign featuring an amnesiac wizard, but it is marred by needlessly complicated rules and a story that works better as a novel.
Ali Baba bo-bana, banana fana fo-fana…
Pocahontas isn’t going to tell the colors of the wind here.
