Prisoners of Pax Tharkas by Morris Simon
When you return to your home town of Solace you discover that it has been destroyed by dragons and that your younger brother is in danger! I absolutely worshipped the Dragonlance series of novels as a youngster.
When I saw this book at the local gameshop, I snapped it prisoners of pax tharkas up. Unfortunately, while it is fun, in a way, to meddle around the edges of the Dragonlance plot, it presents a major hindrance to a enjoyable gaming experience.
It becomes very clear early on that your character will not be permitted to do anything which would impact upon the plot of Dragons of Autumn Twilight. Therefore, it can be said that this both helps in terms of choices as you know that any choice which would affect the plot is wrong and hinders in that most of the more interesting and obvious choices are circumscribed.
The gameplay is functional, if nothing more.
Prisoners of Pax Tharkas by Morris Simon (1985, Paperback)
Based loosely around Dungeons and Dragonsit serves a purpose. This was the only one of the series that I ended up reading. Can't comment as to whether the others solved the plot problems present here.
More reviews by Aussiesmurf Demian's Thoughts: I've never been too fond of the system of rules this series uses, and this first book uses it particularly poorly.
In addition to the fact that the section explaining the rules is rather poorly written and repeats the name "Bern Vallenshield" prisoners of pax tharkas an extent that is somewhere between humorous and annoyingthere is a point value placed on each ending which allows the reader to have a slight edge upon later plays.
This means that there is no real end to the book; even upon finding the "best" ending, you are encouraged to read through again.
This doesn't make the book particularly satisfying and if the happy endings are unsatisfying, imagine how some of the bad ones feel! Despite these flaws, the book does have some good moments and its continuity with the first Dragonlance novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight is quite good.
While the fact that it casts the reader as a minor character from the Dragonlance Chronicles series of novels may prisoners of pax tharkas to have some appeal, so much effort is put into preventing the player character's actions from disrupting the continuity of the main series that one wonders what's the point of reading this book when the time could be better spent on reading the main novels instead.
In fact, nearly the entire book feels either like wasted space or like an ode to Murphy's Law: The book is structured in a rather disconcerting way, which only adds to the frustration as it takes far too many tries to discover there is no real point to it: In order to reach what could be called the "optimal" ending which, considering the limitations of the story outlined above, is little more than a euphemism the player has mostly to find a very linear and narrow, long path, avoiding most dangers without attempting to do anything that would defy the main Dragonlance continuity.
Once this book is finished, it feels so much like a lame work of linear fiction in the Dragonlance setting that it seems the only way to get it published was to disguise prisoners of pax tharkas as a gamebook.
As if the above weren't bad enough, there isn't much in the way of gameplay to speak of.
Die rolls aren't usually too hard, and it's also possible to breeze through the adventure making very few of them plus there are Experience points to tilt the results in your favour if you need to.
As a result, the difficulty of the adventure for the most part resides in the choice-making, and as the only rationale for most of it prisoners of pax tharkas being herded along a narrow path while avoiding pretty much everything prisoners of pax tharkas meet, I didn't find much to recommend about it.
Prisoners of Pax Tharkas
Despite the fact that, for the reasons outlined above, the book is mostly a waste of time, it still deserves mention for being one of the first to prisoners of pax tharkas a style of writing which differentiated American gamebooks from their British counterparts like Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf.
With few exceptions Cretan Chronicles being one of the most noteworthycharacterization in British gamebooks is usually sacrificed in favour of other aspects, like exploration or encounter design. In contrast, the characters in this book and in most of this series as well have personalities, and even if their complexity and depth doesn't exceed what you would find in a TSR linear novel, the dialogue and character interaction make this a rather entertaining read.
It's only a shame we had to wait until later releases in this series to see this feature being coupled with decent design and gameplay. More reviews by Guillermo Kveto's Thoughts: This series is clearly influenced by Fighting Fantasy books, as the sections become shorter and the game element is introduced rolling dice, skill checks, hit points, etc.
Each comes with a bookmark with all of your character stats.
