During the first lockdown Paul Flannery of Knightmare Live! fame) livestreamed the Knightmare gamebooks over Twitch. This inspired Knightmare fan Peter Pulsford to create his own Knightmare-inspired gamebook, The Phial of Freedom. After a short discussion, Peter requested that we make the PDF available on the website, and we agreed because it’s really bloody good!
Peter’s foreword for the book:
“This was written during the global pandemic 2020-2021, for the fans. I was a fan of Knightmare as a
boy and enjoyed the Knightmare Live show online in 2020. I loved the escapism, the world of
Knightmare, the characters, both in-world and in the community. I’ve played through the books and
wanted to write my own as a tribute.
This is for all the Knightmare Live fans, especially those stuck in the lockdown. Stay safe, stay home,
and remember it’s only a fan-fiction gamebook laced with in-jokes… isn’t it?”
Thanks to Paul Flannery, Keil Wilson, Claire Hall, Ada Yum and Tom Pulsford for their help”
