Day 10 – Favourite Tie-In Novel / Game Fiction

I don’t read very much game fiction these days but I did read my fair share back in the 80’s and early 90’s.

I used to enjoy a number of the old TSR novels (some of the Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms novels for instance), quite a lot of the White Wolf ‘World of Darkness’ novels (Fun Fact: There’s actually a character called ‘Angus Abranson’ in the Brujah Trilogy ;p) and a sprinkling of other tie-in novels.

White Wolfs ‘Clan Series’ is pretty close to top of my list but my all-time favourite tie-in game fiction is actually the Torg: Possibility Wars trilogy which was published by West End Games.

The series (‘Storm Knights’, ‘The Dark Realm’ and ‘The Nightmare Dream’) began at the beginning of the invasion and started the characters journey through the various Cosms trying to fight the High Lords and their armies and reclaim True Earth (and their relevant home Cosms).
