Shadowvault is the name given to a page which hosts a collecttion of gamebooks from various notable ameter gamebook authors as Simon osborn and Andrew wright. some of these may be found on the fighting fantasy project, ---- but many are original covering genres from fantasy to scifi and unique settings from pyratical tropics to a good old fashioned dungeon crawl.p> most also use the taditional fighting fantasy rules, so are doubly easy to just step into and start playing, even though it is necessary to write you own character sheet.
The gamebooks are presented as pdf text files thus making it necessary to manually find sections of text, write your character's stats, and roll dice. The easiest way to handle pdfs is to use the accessible version of Adoby acrobat reader found here to convert the gamebooks to text, or read them directly (it even has a self-voicing option with ms sapi). Note that this is not the standard adoby acrobat reader, which does not come with access features and may not convert texts (including gamebooks), as well as the version mentioned here.
Once text handling is taken care of, the rest is easy, as a players' stats can be written using any word processor you wish, and The gma dice program found here to handle the dice rolling.
For anyone interested in gamebooks, or these authors work, the offerings in the shadowvault are deffinately worth checking out.
