‘Heroes of Urowen’ is a gamebook in the style of the classics ‘Choose your own adventure’ that triumphed in the 80s, but has a very dynamic and exciting game system, totally renovated and directed to an adult audience, with an elaborate sheet and rules that allow you to enjoy the pleasure of throwing dices, to improve your character and to use countless objects, such as weapons and armors, potions, talismans, coins to spend on vices, and a long etcetera. Not in vain, to create this work, the author has used a great experience acquired for more than 15 years as a tireless master of role, and a regular consumer of videogames.
