Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls
There are not many tabletop roleplaying games that have been around quite as long as Tunnels and Trolls. Introduced over half-a-century ago in 1975 – and with eight editions since that time – Tunnels and Trolls has been standing for about as long as the hobby itself. But it is not just that it is still standing that is impressive (it is), it’s the fact that – whenever I see a forum post from someone new to the hobby requesting a system or something that wants something different in the classic adventure RPG vein – Tunnels and Trolls is still getting recommendations.
Now, the original team behind Tunnels and Trolls – Ken St. Andre, Liz Danforth and Bear Peters – have partnered with Richard Loomis of Flying Buffalo to publish a new, deluxe version of Tunnels and Trolls called … “Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls.”
According to the Kickstarter listing for Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls, the book will be at least 200 pages long that will not only include new rules, but will also go into greater detail than previous editions regarding “Trollworld,” the default setting for Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls. However, not everything is changing, with the new edition promising backwards compatibility with previously released modules and adventures, according to the Kickstarter listing.
While there are a number of prestige Kickstarter levels, the major levels are $14 for a PDF copy of the new Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls book, $28 for a softcover of the new rules and $60 for a hardcover version. Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls, according to the Kickstarter listing, has an estimated release date of August, 2013.
