 The Fantasy Trip - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Fantasy Trip is a role-playing game that was designed by Steve Jackson and was published by Metagaming.
When Steve Jackson left Metagaming he was able to negotiate the rights for OGRE but the price asked for The Fantasy Trip was beyond what he was prepared to pay.
The basic combat and magic rules presented in Melee and Wizard were greatly expanded specifically for purposes of role-playing in Advanced Melee and Advanced Wizard.

 The Fantasy Trip
The Fantasy Trip was an "evolution" of Metagaming's Melee and Wizard, both of which were authored by Steve Jackson.
You didn't really need the rules for The Fantasy Trip to play, just Melee or Melee and Wizard were called for, since the RPG was subsumed by the paragraph system used in the solitaire adventures.
A series of solitaire adventures were published for Melee/Wizard/The Fantasy Trip.

 My Final Fantasy V Review
The jobs that characters can master are derived from various fantasy archetypes, and some of them (knight, thief, ninja, black wizard, white wizard, red wizard, monk) first appeared in the game known to the world as the original Final Fantasy.
Final Fantasy IV's graphics were quite simple, even stripped-down by today's standards, and I find it tolerable (with the exception of some of the character sprites).
In Final Fantasy VI, he blended classical, jazz, rock, techno, and numerous ethnic styles that together manage to leave an indellible impression on the consciousness of the listener.

 SF REVIEWS.NET: Wizard's First Rule / Terry Goodkind
When you find out what the "wizard's first rule" is, it's something of a subtle high point to the story, a genuine chuckle that means something because it's such a true observation of human nature.
In fact, sensitive fantasy readers whose tastes run to pretty unicorns, damsels in Rapunzellian distress, and dashing heroes who effortlessly make mincemeat out of evil baddies all the while sporting a charming Kevin Sorbo smirk, will probably throw this book across the room in horror and speed-dial their therapists.
Indeed, this is a novel that is as much about human nature, and the way in which ordinary people must rise above themselves to endure hardship, as it is a traditional good-vs-evil quest fantasy.

 Books (etc) We Like
It provides a fairly well done presentation of standard fantasy conceits and themes - a common man who becomes a hero, the old wizard, the evil master who is on the verge of conquering the world of good people, and the quest to defeat him via a powerful artifact or artifacts.
In presenting it as literature first and fantasy second, Goodkind manages to break out of the literary ghetto fantasy literature has traditionally been placed in.

 White Mage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With an appearance based on the Final Fantasy job class, the White Mage is known for her kindness, her frustration with stupidity (Black Belt's in particular), and for walloping Black Mage with her large mallet whenever he offers her one of his often comically inept pickup lines.
The White Mage (Japanese: 白魔道士, or しろまどうし in earlier games without kanji support) is a character class (or job) in Square Enix's Final Fantasy series of computer role playing games.
A white witch was a title occasionally given to cunning folk - a witch who would be paid for removing the supposed effects of witchcraft.

 Wizard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A wizard is a practitioner of magic, especially in folklore, fantasy fiction, and fantasy role-playing games.
In most cases there is little to differentiate a wizard from similar fictional and folkloric practitioners of magic such as an enchanter, a magician, a sorcerer, a necromancer, or a thaumaturgist, but specific authors and works use the names with narrower meanings.
In the Middle-earth legendarium, "wizard" is a term applied only to the five members of the Order of the Istari; the term "wizard" could never be applied to a human, and a human magic user is simply called a sorcerer.

 Amazon.com: Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower, Book 4): Books: Stephen King
Wizard and Glass, the fourth episode in King's white-hot Dark Tower series, is a sci-fi/fantasy novel that contains a post-apocalyptic Western love story twice as long.
"Wizard and Glass" is more a traditional fantasy novel than the other, more darkly fantastic books in the series.
But for the 'dark Tower' series the 'Wizard and Glass' is the pinnacle, I had to wait darn near a decade for the end of the series and then they actually came too quick because they didn't feel completed or well planned out.

 The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
The Wizard of Oz (1939) is everybody's cherished favorite, perennial fantasy film musical from MGM during its golden years.
After travels down a Yellow Brick Road to the Land of Oz, and the defeat of the Wicked Witch of the West, Dorothy and her friends are rewarded by the Wizard of Oz with their hearts' desires - and Dorothy is enabled to return home to Kansas.
An interesting sidenote: the plot of The Wizard of Oz has often been used, rightly or wrongly, as a Parable on Populism in the Gilded Age, to explain the political situation at the time of its writing, including the 1896 Presidential election, and the turn-of-the-century Populist movement.

Terry Goodkind, author of the brilliant fantasy bestsellers Wizard's First Rule and Stone of Tears, has created his most masterful epic yet, a sumptuous feast of magic and excitement replete with the wonders of his unique fantasy vision.
Over the course of his journeys Richard learned to accept his true role, first as the Seeker and the wielder of the Sword of Truth, and then, in Stone of Tears, as the new Lord Rahl and the war wizard who led the fight against the Keeper and his dark minions.
Little does the First Wizard, much less the woman herself, realize an act from her past will force him into a cataclysmic duel of magic with Panis Rahl himself.

Thus, a fantasy novel requires that the STORY be well-told according to the rules of literature (see Aristotle's De Poetica for the best outline of these rules), and that this good story be placed in a well-constructed world.

A Wizard of Earthsea concerns the early life of Ged, a sorcerer who releases into the world an evil power that he must eventually confront.
It is often unfairly thrown into the "young adult" category; not-so-young adults would be making a mistake if they were to use this as a reason to not read A Wizard of Earthsea.

 Amazon.ca: Books: Wizard's First Rule
Goodkind's writing improves as the book winds on, giving hope that the promised sequel will outclass this volume, but, for the most part, his prose is flat, his ideas hackneyed (Wizard's First Rule is, "people are stupid"), his characters tediously moralistic and his plot without originality.
Customers who bought Wizard's First Rule also bought:
Big, bland and conventional, Goodkind's first novel is an epic fantasy that doesn't conjure up much magic.
