There are some tabletop roleplaying products for Fighting Fantasy. I can't remember if they have been discussed on The Piazza. I don't remember if they were d20 System or if they had invented a bespoke Fighting Fantasy RPG System for them. (You kind of would expect Fighting Fantasy adventures to be one-player adventures, that don't need a GM. :) )

That list is definitely incomplete. I know there were at least a few of the gamebook titles translated into D&D rules floating around.

If there is a version of Fighting Fantasy out there, based on the SRD, we can have a forum for it*. ;)

* = If fans turn up and start a fanbase for it here. D&D communities may settle in transit.

If it came to it, that would be the Titan campaign setting.

A bit of everything. :roll:
There is Fighting Fantasy RPG, Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG (1st edition), Myriador (d20) and Advanced Fighting Fantasy (2nd edition).

It looks like its up to me to get the new Sasquatch Game Studio Alternity game off to a conversational start, especially the in-development Protostar campaign setting. :)

To clarify, Sasquatch Game Studios is producing their own new Alternity SF Settings (Protostar & an unnamed 2nd setting) as they don’t hold the licenses to the previous Alternity (1998) settings of Star*Drive, Dark*Matter, Gamma World, StarCraft Adventures, or Star Frontier as these are held by WOTC.

I'd like to add to the list Mazes and Minotaurs, an absolutely lovely (and free) RPG set in Mythika, a Classic Greek Mythology world: http://storygame.free.fr/MAZES.htm and http://mazesandminotaurs.free.fr/revised.html

There is also the associated Vikings and Valkyries: http://mazesandminotaurs.free.fr/VIK.html
