It’s harder to be a publisher than you might imagine, especially when you’re getting old and lazy like me, but after months of effort, here is the first true original Trollhalla Press publication. Yes, Trollhalla Press has 7 other publications, including all 5 spell books and 2 novels, but all of them were done for other publishers originally and sort of negotiated their way onto the Trollhalla Press page on drivethrurpg.com.
THE LAST ADVENTURE OF BIG JACK BRASS is a true Trollhalla production. Every person who worked on it is a member of Trollhalla. Story by Jon Hancock and me, art by Darrenn Canton, layout and production by Steve Crompton, this combination of low comedy and high adventure is the very essence of T & T play turned into fiction. I have to say I’m really very pleased with it, and would appreciate your support for this kind of effort from Trollhalla Press.
T & T encourages all different styles of play and adventuring, and it follows that it also encourages a wide variety of artistic styles. I’m very pleased with the art I got from Darrenn for it. And so I want to show you a couple more pieces. If you want to see it all, you’re going to have to buy the book.
Jack was told that Gristlegrim would let him into the dungeon if he would sacrifice his beard. You know how men just hate to give up their beards. Here Jack is sacrificing the poor thing, stabbing it to death on an unholy altar.
And here, for the first time ever is a picture of the Gristlegrim dungeon floating serenely in the skies of Trollworld. What other game or game master ever gave you a flying dungeon?
THE LAST ADVENTURE OF BIG JACK BRASS is available now for a mere $1.99 over at drivethrurpg.com. Here’s the url: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?keywords=The+Last+Adventure+of+Big+Jack+Brass&x=0&y=0&author=&artist=&pfrom=&pto=.
And after you’ve read it, let me know if I should get some physical copies printed up. I’m afraid they will cost a bit more than $1.99 but if there’s any demand, I’ll do it.
And watch this space for continuing news on the fate of Trollhalla.com. It may come back to life or be reincarnated in slightly different form.
