Baf's Guide


A fun game involving the interaction of RPG-style magic and modern appliances. As Philip (last name unspecified), your D&D campaign breaks through into reality, and it's up to you to return the neighborhood to normal. Since it was written specifically for the real Philip by someone in his gaming group, it depends highly on knowledge of their particular fictional world, but everything relevant is explained in a book within the game (which probably robs some of the surprises of their impact.) PC internal speaker music plays on death, which can usually (but not always) be anticipated. Recommended for current or former D&D players; others won't get as much out of it. See Tark for another game inspired by the same D&D campaign.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

SynTax
The authors have, throughout, managed to convey a sense of evil, and the complexity of the world within Philip's mind is quite enthralling. Indeed, with such a fertile imagination to draw on for the plot, it is perhaps a pity that the adventure is not twice the size. [...] If you're a fan of horror fantasy then you should find the game an interesting and enjoyable one to play. It's certainly one of the more gruesome text adventures I've played and, as you'll have gathered, not one for the squeamish!
