Hamnasya iOS Gamebook Released

By on 20 December 2012

Eifir PosterBlue Flame Publishing have released an app on iOS called Hamnasya – Askaryl’s Grimoire. It’s a gamebook set in a fantasy world where the reader/player chooses the paths to follow. His actions have direct consequences on how the story unfolds. The app follows a rpg structure, where the reader/player first creates his character by rolling dice and then selects several abilities and powers.

Hamnasya Map

Hamnasya is a dark fantasy world created by Nicolas Lenain. It is a sprawling, living, breathing world filled with strange characters, fantastical monsters, terrifying encounters and all manner of might and magic. Askaryl’s grimoire is the first part of the epic saga taking place in Hamnasya. A grimoire, or book of magic with immense magical powers has been stolen from its guardians, the Council of Great Wise Men. You will play Edhan, tasked with the perilous mission to retrieve the stolen book, while avenging the death of Alikia, his adoptive mother.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
