So there are mutterings of a second Fighting Fantasy Fest heading towards reality in the year 2017. This would make it a nice 35th anniversary event for the series. I cannot really say anymore at this time other than all you other fans out there should keep an eye on the creators Facebook walls. The biggest gripe people speak about is how do they make it worth going to this time. We had the chat from the creators, publishers, illustrators , we had book stall and game stalls, the incredible Legend Photography , and Ian and Steve held an auction with all sorts of goodies from their personal collections.
For me it wouldn’t matter too much. It’d be a great chance to catch up with my hero’s, many of which have become good friends. Writers/ illustrators and of course fans that couldn’t make it last time would be great to see . Getting a few more raries signed is always a good thing. I noticed a poll Ian Livingstone posted on Facebook recently. Also I noticed “Grumpy Wizard” pic and a related McCaig cover.
Clues…. ? Maybe it’s nothing, but I believe it may not just be FFF2 making fans happy next year if it all comes true, and this year still has FF magic to come when Tin Man Games release their 3D app version of The Warlock Of Firetop Mountain.
