Tunnels & Trolls

I've won a copy of Tunnels & Trolls 1st Edition Special Print 1985 on ebay! I've always wanted to see the beginnings of my favorite RPG, and now it's on its way. I've also won, from the same seller, a hardcover copy of Gamma Trollworld, which is, as the name implies, Tunnels & Trolls done Gamma World style. How friggin' cool is that!

I've been playing Tunnels & Trolls since about the mid-eighties, and of all the RPGs I've ever played, it is the single one I always end up returning to. I started off playing the Corgi boxed version, which contained the 5th Edition rules in a digest sized book, a format I loved. I quickly bought up the Corgi digest sized double solos, and a bunch of solos published by Flying Buffalo/Blade, including the limited edition solo Elven Lords by Michael Stackpole. One of the best parts about T&T, at least for me, were (and still are) the solos. Eventually, I started GMing a small group, and the rest, as they say, is history.

A few years ago, I bought the Tunnels & Trolls 7th Edition 30th Anniversary Tin published by Fiery Dragon, and most recently I bought the pdf version of Tunnels & Trolls 7.5 Edition, as an update to my T&T7E set. I like a lot of the changes in these editions of the rules, they addressed and solved some issues that cropped up in earlier editions.

I look forward to future additions to my T&T collection, especially New Khazan by Tom K. Loney, a T&T space fantasy setting that looks to be exciting.
