Hello, I am new to the forums, so please don't bite my head off if the answer is obvious. I want to start a "Let's Play" series for roleplaying gamebooks from series as Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, or Freeway Warrior. Is such a thing permitted, and if so, where is the most appropriate place for that? Is it Roleplaying or Fanfiction, like I suspect? Or is there some other community board that I am somehow not aware of? Thanks a lot for your help.

I guess such a thread is not allowed on this website. My apologies for bothering you all.

What does a Let's Play of a gamebook entail? Copying all the text verbatim? Paraphrasing the action while keeping the choices intact? You might try getting an invite to this board:

It would involve copying all the text as choices are made, but not the pictures. Below are instances on how such a let's play would entail.

Hope this makes my request clearer. Thanks for the reply.

Ahh, so it's a full-on transcription project. If you can get permission from the copyright holder(s) -- as was done in at least one of those links -- it'll likely be fine. I wouldn't bother otherwise.
