Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains—free update and expansion!

Originally published at: Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains—free update and expansion! - Choice of Games LLC

Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains, the popular game by Adrao, has been updated with 20,000 words of new content. This update includes a new side quest, four more romance options, more secret rooms, new monsters, and an additional spell, as well as new artwork!

This update is free for all customers who have already purchased the game, and for those who haven’t: get Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains on sale until July 13th!

The orc tribes of Icepeak Mountains are threatening human settlements. Do you have the courage and determination to defeat their clans? Try to survive deadly dungeons and level up as an adventurer.

Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains is a 140,000 word interactive gamebook by Adrao, where a combination of your choices and the roll of dice will determine your destiny. The game is text-based, with artwork allowing you the chance to actually see the exotic locations and dungeons you will visit on your journey.

You will start as a novice adventurer, either a fighter, cleric, wizard or rogue, and level up through a series of quests, either those related to the main story of the game, or other side adventures. The dungeons you will visit have some element of randomness to them, ensuring that even if you play multiple times you will still discover some new secret rooms and monsters. You will have to carefully choose between the abilities and spells at your disposal, and manage well the treasure you loot to buy a variety of objects that can help you in your quests.

• A gamebook similar to those written in the 1980s and 1990s.
• A dice-based RPG with Roguelike elements. No two games will be the same.
• Detailed branching narrative system.
• Play as male, female, or nonbinary. However, do note that there is no romance to be found here.
• Four character classes to choose from: fighter, wizard, cleric or rogue.
• Over 30 different spells to choose from. Will you use a vampiric ray to absorb the energy of your enemies and heal yourself, or the invisibility spell to pass by them without being noticed?
• Multiple types of melee attacks and abilities to use. Cripple your enemies with powerful blows, or adopt a defence stance.
• Dozens of magic objects to use, from magic weapons to potions or scrolls.
• Hordes of enemies to fight, each with their own characteristics and weak points. Will you manage to defeat orc warlords, overcome powerful elementals, and slay mighty dragons?
• Several illustrations to enhance your experience.
• Try several different difficulty settings. Play as a mighty invincible hero, or struggle to defeat the game on the harder modes. What is the maximum score you can reach?


Congratulations on the update @adrao!

Thanks! I hope that this is a version that can be more enjoyed by people… there are now 4 ROs in the game, and quite a lot of extra content. Please let me know if you find any bugs or you have any feedback! (either here or on the other thread!) :slight_smile:


Smallish bug. New games don’t show the difficulty selection or allow stats to be distributed, it’s always zero.


So this game got romance now or was there some even before?

The game description states “However, do note that there is no romance to be found here”.

Its a bit confusing.


There was no romance originally.


@CloudStrike Ufff… I’m such an idiot, I should have asked CoG to change that. Thanks for pointing this out! :slight_smile: Just wrote an email to request these changes. There are now 4 ROs in the game (the original game didn’t have any, as @AletheiaKnights pointed out, but this was requested by many readers… so I spent quite a bit of time working on this and other feedback I got :slight_smile: ).

@Agonyzyr Thanks also… actually that is a pretty big bug! (and thanks also for reporting! :slight_smile: )Basically, the game is currently starting in the wrong mode (it is starting in one of my own playtesting modes).

Please do let me know if there are any other characters you would like to romance… like in most of my games, I slowly try to expand them as time passes and according to the requests of readers! I hope overall the game is better now, but I will continue to expand in the coming weeks/months :slight_smile:


Thats not the only bug. Every fight scene is skipped and whatever you do DO NOT VISIT THE GENERAL STORE TWO TIMES IN A ROW AFTER COMPLETING THE MAIN STORY

Yes, the one bug that @Agonyzyr reported essentially causes the entire game to misbehave (basically it is a variable that skips many parts of the game, allowing me to more easily playtest). But, what happens if you visit the general store two times in a row? You mean after completing the entire game, or just the first quest?

The entire game after going back to town

The descriptions have now been updated to reflect that there are romance options.


Thanks so much for the quick patch! :slight_smile:

From what I can see the bugs have now been removed and the game should be working correctly. However, do let me know if you encounter any other bugs :slight_smile:


Hopefully the game is working correctly now?

Mmmm, romance. I’ll see about getting the game now…

Thought I would try this game, lured in with the promise of romance.
Got all my gold stolen instead. Ha!
This is so well written and definitely full of surprises.
I want to go back to the dwarf’s tomb again and again!


How do we romance people?

Well, the first two that you can romance should be obvious. After you rescue Lenitri you can talk a bit more with her or her brother, and then when you return to the village after subsequent quests you can go and talk to them again, etc . But, basically this is a process, you have to come and go, and slowly go through it… the same is true for Mydralla/Dreiruth. You have to first meet them, and then go back and talk several times…

Does this help? Or you are just not encountering them or being given the options?
