Butler to the Dark Lord
by Sam Bowring
In this darkly funny gamebook, YOU play the conniving butler to the dark lord, and your choices shape the story. With multiple pathways, nine different endings, and plenty of ways to meet an untimely demise, this is Downton Abbey meets Mordor – will you serve-vive?
– Navigate a cast of treacherous nobility and murderous relatives
‘Even though the intention is clearly humorous and the various scenarios consistently amusing, ‘Butler to the Dark Lord’ is far from merely being a tongue-in-cheek parody of adventure gamebooks. There is a real adventure, which, thanks to the assassination plot, has a decent storyline with a reasonable level of challenge and intrigue … It all makes for a highly enjoyable adventure with a bit of a difference.’
