Fighting fantasy rpg and CYOA books
To my understanding, the Fighting fantasy rpg (and Troika! as a more-or-less retroclone) use the same rule system as the choose your own adventure gamebooks of Steve Jackson, Warlock of firetop mountain and so on.
What does this mean exactly? Can I use those rules to make a character and play them in these solo adventures, for example, like I can with Tunnels and trolls solo adventures?
