Something I forgot to mention about my last trip into the city for Vertical Vendesday. While at Book-Off, scouring for rarities, I bumped into something that surprised even Ioannis: a Guin Saga tie-in game book that amounted to a kind of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure story. Rather than just pick between choices every couple of pages, you roll dice and track your character's progress with a sheet, so it's a bit more RPG-style game-oriented than CYOA was. There's some terrible irony in that the closest analogy in anything released today would be something like Queens Blade. Ick.
