I have been thinking about how to make Trollhalla.com a better site for everyone who likes Tunnels and Trolls. With advice from the Elite of Trollhalla, I have decided to create an Outer Sanctum to correspond to the Inner Sanctum. In this outer sanctum we will post all the Tunnels and Trolls news that we can get, including blogs from guest bloggers, art from our artists, news of new developments in Tunnels and Trolls gaming. If a new T & T product comes out, we will talk about it here. If new art is created for Tunnels and Trolls, it will appear here. And if you should decide that you want to be a member of Trollhalla, you will be able to sign up here. Continue reading «Trollhalla for Everyone!»
I’m back from GenCon and mostly recovered from the trip. I ran 3 short sessions of Tunnels and Trolls for about 21 gamers, and missed the 4th one by a misunderstanding. The gamers thought I didn’t show up; I thought they didn’t show up. We were separated by 2 rooms in a hotel corridor. Grrrrrrrrrr!
I did sell quite a few copies of the first edition reprint, and of the Deluxe T & T beta rules. I have about 4 copies of each left over. And I’m offering signed copies of them to anyone who reads this page. The reprint facsimile of the first edition is $10 plus $3 postage inside the USA. The Deluxe Beta rules is $25 plus $5 postage in the USA. People outside the USA could buy them, but they would have to add an additional $10 for postage instead of $3. If you’re interested, send me an email to verify that there are any left–email@example.com.
In other news a beautiful book was waiting for me when I got home. It is called Drachenvater and is, of course, about That Other Game, and Mr. Gygax and Mr. Arneson. T & T gets a 2 page mention near the end of the book. The authors are Tom Hillenbrand and Konrad Lischka. The publisher is Octopus Press, and it’s all in German. I know enough German to read it with only occasional trips to the dictionary. But, the real charm of the book is in the full color illustrations throughout. See below.
Now, it’s the final push to get the rules finished. The big news in gaming has been the release of the Player’s version of D & D 5. I haven’t looked at it, and don’t intend to, but I’m probably the only frp gamer in the country who won’t.
