Welcome to the Party of One: the most fun you can have by yourself! Party of One books are solo adventures where you make the important choices, roll the dice, and try to stay alive. Leda is the first d20-based interactive novel.
The first book in the Maduban Saga, Leda centers on a young elven arcane apprentice in a human city who discovers adventure comes in many varieties. With the help of her friends and the reader's choices, she may succeed in staying alive, killing the bad guys, taking their treasure, and telling "stories" about how she was the heroine. You'll thoroughly enjoy the twists and turns in this 240-page novel, packed with reader choices.
Reading a Party of One book from cover to cover won't get you anywhere but confused. Start out at number 1 and then follow the instructions at the bottom of the paragraph, which informs you where to click next. For example:
>If Leda decides to go west, go to 123.
>If Leda decides to go east, go to 96.
When you click on "go to 123," you'll be sent to the page containing section 123. We make clicking fun, although somewhat hazardous.
If you're familiar with the d20 system, the resolution methods will be intuitive. If you're not, don't worry. You don't need to know how to play d20 games to enjoy a Party of One book. Simply roll the dice as indicated.
For d20 mechanic savvy readers, you'll occasionally be given a choice to run a combat yourself. Choosing to do so will take you to a combat appendix where creature stat blocks and a starting position map set up the action. All combat appendices end with options that bring you back into the story.
