Slightly surprised that this doesn't have a thread already, but I can't see it...?
For those who can't see the tweet, it says: "While I'm busy writing the bonus chapter for the collector's hardback edition of the book, don't forget that it's not too late to place a Late Pledge for my new #ACEgamebook 'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas."
I was very annoyed by the maze in the Alice book, so I stopped playing it.
Author of 'Hellfire', 'Riders of the Storm', 'House of Pain' (sequel to House of Hell) and 'Deathtrap' (prequel to Deathtrap Dungeon). All are available for download here or at: www.ffproject.com/download.htm
I think you're right about para 275, although the benefits in para 296 might be because you would still be a bit chilly after climbing a glacier in your dressing gown and gloves.
I've just completed this as well. I didn't actually fight Krampus, I banished him with some items and latin, so didn't come across the problem you described wilf. I'll try the ice castle route later and have a scrap with Krampus then.
It is very well written, as you'd expect. Lots of wintery encounters. Possibly a bit easy, statwise, if I'm being critical. The artwork is outstanding. There are a few hidden paragraphs, but it doesn't feel overdone. Similarly, the codewords feel well utilised.
I haven't read Green's Alice so can't compare them (I see Alice is written in third person, which I'm not keen on), but this is certainly better than the garbage scholastic is publishing. I actually prefer it to night of the necromancer. Highly recommended.
