Defenders 2: Elusive Elixir is the second installment in a series of high fantasy choose-your-path gamebooks, penned by Whitney Award-nominated Derick William Dalton.
The Defenders series is a melding of tabletop role-playing and fantasy novels. Inspired by Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, and Lone Wilderlands, reader choices and hero abilities allow a range of storylines and adventure paths.
Defenders game novels have an introduction explaining the mechanics of character traits, skills, combat, use of gear, and character improvement. The story continues from the first book, Throne of the Bandit Lord, boasts diverse paths in both plot and across the map, and continues in book three, Heiress of the Tundra.
