City of Thieves

Story part game this is a book with a difference – one in which YOU become the hero A pencil and an eraser are all you need to make your journey YOU decide which route to take which creatures to fight and which dangers to risk. Time to teach a big bully a lesson19 July 2012 The fifth book in the series and from what I remember one of the better ones To me it seems that the books Forest of Doom City of Thieves Deathtrap Dungeon and Island of the Lizard King were to me the memorable books in the series The first one was obviously experimental as was Starship Traveller and Citadel of Chaos but it feels that with the books that I have got to now the writers had settled down on a style that seemed to work However the ones that came after I have little memory with the exception of Scorpion Swamp In this book you are a seasoned adventurer who has arrived in a small town that is being bullied by an evil undead warlock named Zanzar Bone You are approached by the mayor and asked to go and find a friend of his who lives in the city of Port Blacksand the city of thieves that the title of the book derives its name However there is a little twist because when you do find Nicodemus he simply tells you that he is too old to go off adventuring so he tells you how to kill Zanzar Bone and sends you on your way While the majority of the book is set in Port Blacksand it moves away from the other books slightly in that the end game begins once you have left Port Blacksand Zanzar Bone does not live in the city nor is he the ruler of the city rather your adventure in the city is simply one of locating somebody who then tells you what you need to search for to be able to defeat your enemy It is actually a reasonably easy book and while they talk about a one true path it is uite easy to find it However there are a number of other objects that you need to collect such as the Skeleton Key which will make your uest significantly easier The one item I could not find though I suspect that it is located somewhere near the start is the merchant s pass One could suggest that this is another assassination job though it is clear that Bone is a bully and needs to be taught a lesson and of course you are the one who has to teach him a lesson One of the interesting things is that these books tend to be very black and white particularly with the fantasy ones In a lot of fantasy novels I note that the settings are generally black and whiteL the good hero goes out to fight and kill the evil villain I guess it is reflective of our desire to see and compartmentalise the world into black and white as opposed to the shade of grey that exists in I guess it is also something pushed down upon us from above so that we will always see our country as being the white and anything opposed to our country as black Unfortunately it is not necessarily the case because there are instances where an immoral government uses this concept to bring the population on side I want to finish off with something about undead In many novels the undead are always protrayed as evil I suspect that this may have something to do with our Christian heritage as the Bible clearly puts necromancy into the realm of evil That may be the case but what about the idea of animating corpses Is that necessarily evil and is animating a corpse generally evil Personally I think it comes down to our attitudes towards the dead To a culture that sees a corpse as nothing than a diseased shell to be destroyed with the spirit being disconnected from it then maybe it is not However to a culture like ours that while believing that the soul breaks away from the corpse our treatment of the corpse reflects our attitudes towards that person in life The Greeks would defile or respect corpses depending on where they wanted the dead to land up A defiled corpse for an example see Antigone would wonder around the Earth as a half man for eternity while a properly disposed of corpse would return either to Hades or any other realm that the deceased achieved in life Personally it really comes down to culture and what the culture does with the corpse really is what that culture believes I uestion the right that we have to insist that an alien culture treat a corpse as we expect it to be treated

    It was wonderful to revisit Port Blacksand after all of these years but I'm afraid I have to be that kid who points out that the emperor isn't wearing any clothes Whilst thoroughly enjoyable City of Thieves isn't the sharpest tool in the Fight
