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!»
Today’s art is by Trollhallan Garrlakk (David Ullery) and it illustrates a mini-solo I wrote and published through Trollhalla Press. There are several nonhumans illustrated in these pictures, and I will give you viewers 100 trollish victory points for each nonhuman that you can correctly identify and spell (according to 7.5 edition rules).
I have 3 copies of this solo left that I can autograph and sell. Normally it sells for $8 plus $3 postage, but if you order one from me now, I’ll give it to you for $7 postage included inside the United States. Sorry, my foreign friends, it simply costs too much to mail these things across oceans, but a pdf version is available at drivethrurpg.com. And if you send me $10 I’ll send you the solo and 2 free rpg-day publications including the Deluxe T & T preview pack released earlier this year.
To collect your trollish victory points, send your email to email@example.com. To purchase this solo, send your money to that same email address at paypal.com. If you’re not one of the first three to order I reserve the right to send either Tavern by the Sea or Dwarf World in place of this mystery solo, or if you would prefer one of those two adventures for the same deal, let me know.
You’ve seen my first attempt to use the metal sculpture of my niece in a fantasy montage, and if you haven’t, just scroll down into the next entry. I mentioned what I would like to do to artist Eric Samuelson, and he volunteered to help.
With Eric’s help, here’s another look at the dreaded yott of Zorr.
I am not finished with this yott. I hear there are giants who keep yotts as pets or guard-beasts in some places, and I hope to secure a picture of such before I’m through.
(In a related note, I wonder if Eric couldn’t take the circular bases out of the picture so my mini adventurers might look a bit more like people and less like toys. Some guys, like me, are never satisfied.
If you have some fantasy monsters to show, why not send those pix to me here at Trollhalla for display on this site?
Strange creatures roam the badlands of Trollworld. I thought this could be one of them, a kind of living metal creature that inhabits the deserts of Zorr. And where there are monsters, there will be brave men/creatures that combat them.
Now, granted, my photography and artistic composition stinks, but I’m working on getting somebody more artistic to turn this picture into something good. I’m only putting it up here as a challenge to members of Trollhalla and others who see this page to send me a jpg or three of their own monsters in some kind of fantasy pose or setting. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I promise the best of them will adorn this page in the near future.
The creature is a yott, and is a metal sculpture created by my talented niece Angela St. Andre. The miniatures were contributed by various members of Trollhalla. I let them sit so long I’ve almost forgotten who sent me stuff, but I think it was Bhgggunn and Tzhett and Anem Kram and maybe someone else. If you recognize your mini and I left you out, tell me, and I’ll amend this entry to give credit where credit is due. The rocks are from my personal rock collection. The big piece of milky quartz was found on a beach in New Zealand when I was down there visiting Khaghbbooomm last year. The geode was bought in Prescott, Arizona. The blue slaggy thing in the background is heat-fused silica from Meteor Crater in northern Arizona.
I have seven more pictures, but I thought this was the best one. The mighty metallic yott will probably appear as a monster in an adventure yet to be written.
This is just an example, and done in a hurry. C’mon Trollhallans, send me better stuff to put on this page.
