THE BATTLEPITS OF KRARTH is the first title in the Blood Sword series. It can be played solo like a traditional gamebook, or it can be played by a team of up to four people. Combining the best of role-playing, gamebooks, vels and boardgames, the Blood Sword series builds into a sweeping fantasy epic that delivers the most exciting challenge yet in interactive adventure. Every thirteen lunar months the Magi of Krarth hold a desperate contest to see which of them will rule that bleak and icy land. Teams of daring adventurers are sent down into the labyrinths that lie beneath the tundra, each searching for the Emblem of Victory that will win power for their patron. Only one team can prevail. The others must die.
