King Hrothgar’s great golden mead-hall, Heorot, lies under a curse; after sunset, the mirth-hating night-stalker Grendel comes to the hall to maim and murder! None are capable of killing the monster, though many have tried, until one day, Beowulf and his company of Geatish warriors cross the sail-road and land on Danish shores...
Beowulf Beastslayer is a gateway to the mythic world of the Scandinavian sagas. Once inside its pages, you will find yourself travelling to Heorot to embark upon a thrilling epic quest of your own.
Beowulf Beastslayer is a brand new take on the Anglo-Saxon epic, re-imagining the events described in the poem as an adventure gamebook. YOU decide which route to take, which perils to risk, and which of the strange creatures you will meet along the way to fight. But whether you survive your quest and rise to the level of lauded hero - and maybe even king - or succumb to the likes of the monster Grendel and his sea-hag mother, will be down to the choices YOU make.
Will you follow the course of events as laid down by the scops and skalds of old – battling the fiend Grendel, his dam, and the fire-tongued dragon – or will you choose a different path and forge your own legend?
Beowulf Beastslayer! A tale of heroes... A tale of monsters... A legend reborn!
