Item-Level Details

Alternate Title: Prisoner in Algiers (literal English translation of title)
User Summary: You are travelling by ship through the Mediterranean when suddenly your ship is attacked by Barbary pirates.
Guillermo's Thoughts:

This, the final solo adventure for the first edition of Aquelarre, takes the game outside its default medieval Spain setting, taking place in a fantasy horror version of the Renaissance era instead. It's quite a good game, with several different plotlines depending on the player's choices and the social position of the player character (therefore having high replay value). I enjoyed it quite a bit, though the premise certainly lends itself to a longer, more complex gamebook. Who knows, maybe the author can be persuaded to write one in the future...
