As mentioned by thedeadfisharmy, there is a series of books by Joe Dever in which you, the character "Lone Wolf," travel on quests.
The first book played to an enjoyable end, despite the fact that I didn't encounter any 'start over' forced ending traps. In a video game, I'm just the opposite . . . having to start over unnerves me. In a book, it engages the mind a bit more, and I think the traps are necessary for a larger level of accomplishment.
I understand that the unsuccessful battle, by their method, of a creature results in one of the 'start overs,' but that gets into . . . Wizzerds N Warrierz!
I'm not big on wizards, warriors, or the like. RPG is not really my bag. This is why I love the CYOA series . . . the 'hit-points' are removed, and I prefer the stripped-down nature of that series.
Yet, I never read Dever's work.
I'm going through the work, sans hit-points.
I plan to go back and try the full effect at some point.
I'm about to start the 2nd book, and I notice that there's a crap-load of them online.
I cast the spell of Coolness on myself.
My Coolness level increases by three points.
People start to call me because I'm so popular.
