Fortress of Terror - Humble Bard Games

The people of your small hamlet of Felwort are threatened by a mysterious evil power emanating from the dark tower on the other side of the forest. Legend says that an evil warlord once lived in the tower, and terrorized the entire realm. There are now whispers that this warlord, known as Bram, has returned, but how could this be after so many years? Your town has chosen YOU to go to the tower and stop this threat. It is said that within the garden outside Bram’s Tower lies the key to stopping him - the ORB of ICE. If you can navigate the garden and find this orb, survive the deadly crypt, navigate the fortress, and defeat Bram, you may be able to save your town. But those who enter the Fortress of Terror never return... Fortress of Terror is a solitaire roll-and-write adventure game in which you, a simple peasant, becomes the humble hero sent by your village to enter the terrifying fortress of the evil warlord Bram in order to stop him from terrorizing the realm. You do this by making your way through four chapters, or sections, of the game. Each chapter places you in a maze that you must explore and escape from, collecting powerful Relics and other goals that you must achieve to win. You move around each maze using a pool of dice that are rolled each round. However, you can never retrace your steps, as Bram has cursed the earth and floors of the fortress to crumble beneath your every step. If you manage to fulfill the chapter objective and escape the maze, you will advance to the next chapter, until you reach the final battle with Bram himself. —description from the designer
