Jailbreak - David Lowrie
Your name is Shadow, and you are a thief. An exceptional thief. For the last 3 years, you have been working the rooftops of the city of Laevani, stealing from the rich and powerful. You are well named, as you seem to have the ability to move unseen in the dark and pass like a shadow in the night.For the last three nights, you have been watching a local merchant. You have worked out his routine and his weaknesses and tonight you intend to rob him blind. However what starts as a routine burglary of his townhouse turns into something else completely. For the first time in your short career, you are captured, and then as you try to escape, you find yourself cast into the centre of an evil plot. For beneath the city, an evil dark power waits, restless, trapped in the dark . If the portents are true, then its time has almost come, and when it rises again, the whole world will tremble. Its servants search the city for the last key needed to unlock it from its eternal jail. And the net is closing. On you.You are no hero. No great warrior from the epics. You are just a street rat, who has grown into a thief. You are beholden to nothing except the Guild of Thieves. But now you find yourself thrown into a world of dark magic and cruelty. And you may be the only person in Laevani who can stop the return of this eons old terror.Are you the hero? In this gamebook, you play Shadow. You make all the decisions, and choose unique abilities that may help (or hinder) you as you try to uncover this terrifying scheme. Armed with two 6-sided dice, a pencil, paper and an eraser, are you ready to take on the dark powers? But first you must escape. First you must break out of jail.
