So yeah, I've been wanting to do a replay through the entire QFG series, and there's one crucial (for me) element to make it perfectly nostalgic. The first time I went through the series, I was terrible at adventure games and, as a result, consulted a walkthrough for almost everything. It was a particular walkthrough written in first person as a sort of narrative (though it read more like a laundry list than a book) and I'm kind of missing that. The walkthroughs covered at least the first four games, and I think the writer had a different walkthrough for each class as well. I don't know if this is the right place to ask for help finding this, but there didn't seem to be anywhere better.

Either way, does anyone know what I'm talking about? I can't imagine there's too many QFG walkthroughs like this.

Oh! Another detail I just remembered is that they were written with each day separate. Like, the writer took a certain number of days, and while you could jerk around for a day in between for most of them, the number of days was included in each walkthrough.

Anyway, hope someone has an idea of where to find these. I know I still have part of one of them printed out, but it's in the United States, and I'm not, which puts a bit of a hamper on that. Otherwise I'd just search for a passage from one of them.

That actually sounds like a very creative way to write a game walkthrough. Seriously, it would make it look more like a diary or retelling from the hero's perspective more than anything else. Unfortunately I have no idea where to find such a thing, but maybe it's worth seeking out.

I think I might have what your looking for. Back in the day I used to collect Walkthroughs for the various Sierra Adventures that were written more like stories than instruction manuals. I can send you what I have if you want and see if they are what your looking for

I remember reading an Ultima 4-6 walkthrough that was first person narrative style... Did you find what you were looking for? If not... well I've got some time. Might use the Cyricz walkthrough as a general outline and write something. It's easier than my own. Only been working on that one forever. =P

You're thinking of the official "QFG Strategy Guide" - had them all written as a narrative, and also introduced the controversial name of Devon Aidendale.

Also, how did I miss this thread ... two years ago... *shrugs*

I never did read the strategy guide. But I might just go pick it up, now. =) Amazon or Ebay, prolly.

I managed to pick up 2 of them for 12 bucks on ebay a few years back, bought one for me and another for my cousin. Haven't checked, but I hope they're still that inexpensive! It's a worthwhile purchase for any QFG fan.

I'll have to look into buying it myself, although I'm not a terrible fan of the Devon Aidendale back story.

It's just a name and a quick 2 pages or so explaining her origin for her character, it's really been blown out of proportion by those who don't like the name. And when you're writing a walkthrough in novel format, you want the character to have a name wink.gif

Wow, old dead thread =) But anyway, to respond to the OP, this is what came to my mind in response to that description:
