Flying Buffalo has Released 14 books in the last 9 months!

Hello all!  Its been a while since we’ve done an update on this blog and that was due to a glitch in our webserver that did not allow us to have access to the blog’s administrative side.  This was partly due to the passing of Flying Buffalo’s (much missed) founder Rick Loomis’ and the fact that only he was able to access the admin part of this site.  However, we have fixed that, and we are now able to post here once again.

Obviously there is a lot to catch up on, but as you can see from the title of this post, we wanted to really show the Buffalo has been Flying, by announcing all our releases since December.  Its a record-breaking number of new and reissued solos, new gm adventures and other unique rpg related items that has brought a lot of joy to those of you who are fans of our materials or looking for something new to try out.

August 2020 products Seven of these releases are new or complete redos of previous versions of some of our books and seven of these are out-of-print solos or adventures that we have re-released for the first time in 20 years.  So let’s take a brief look at them.  All of these are currently available at Drive-Thru rpg.  We’ve focused on digital releases due to the temporary closure of so many stores across the US.  But in the future we plan to print many (if not all) of these books in the near future…

N E W    B O O K S
The Continent of Arabor – is a new Full-color 90 page campaign book that details an entirely new hidden continent on Trollworld. This is hopefully the first in a series of mythos-packs that will revel new places, realms and genres for use with T&T
Deluxe Saving Fang – The Fellowship took the 1st edition solo that was released in 2013 and Ken made it compatible with dT&T. We also upgraded the GM adventure, the art and added a color cover.
Red Cult of Vladimire – This is the first new MSPE GM Adventure since 1993 and takes place in San Francisco in the 1950’s. Are Communists about the explode a Nuclear bomb in the bay and can your team stop them before its too late?
Grimtooth’s Tomb of the Warhammer – Originally issued as a GM adventure for  the DCC rpg, Ken St Andre and Steve Crompton have changed the stats and some of the art so that it is now a full-on T&T GM adventure.
Alice in Weirdworld – This brand new solo adventure is based on the Alice in Wonderland adventures by Lewis Carroll and is the first time we’ve released a solo based on an existing literary work. It also includes a special version of the T&T Mini-Rules.
How to Write a Solo Adventure – This unique collection of articles by Mike Stackpole, Ken St Andre and other editors at Buffalo gives you plenty of tips and advice on how to write solo and gm adventures for T&T, but applies to any sort of rpg game.
Deluxe ElvenLords – This expanded, rewritten edition of the long-out-print solo is almost twice as big as the original and includes plenty of new art by Liz Danforth.

R E P R I N T E D    B O O K S
Dargon’s Dungeon – One of the few solos that allows for a party of adventurers to enter, Dargon’s also has an extensive magic matrix and was co-written by Mike Stackpole and Paul O’Connor (of Grimtooth’s Traps fame).
Beyond the Wall of Tears – This solo takes place in a dream realm and you have to try to rescue your sister who has been kidnapped by Dark forces.
Overkill – Another solo by Mike Stackpole that allows you to take in a whole party of adventurers on a secret mission to Castle Overkill.
Goblin Crag – GM Adventure originally published as a limited edition for GenCon 2005.  This enhanced version includes a new full-color map of the dungeon, a color map of where in Trollworld this adventure is, and some additional new art.
Maps 1: Book of Cities –  Contains maps of over 20 cities which can be used anywhere in your campaign. Each city is fully mapped, with major points of interest & the  background of the city and its people described. Adventure ideas for gaming are also included in this 103 page book. For any rpg.
Dark Temple – This 64 page solo sets you off on an adventure to deliver a magic scroll while trying to avoid a secret cult. No matter what, you’ll end up at the Dark Temple!
Trollstone Caverns – Another hard to find GM adventure returns. This one is meant for 1st level and other beginning characters, with new art, maps and the T&T Mini-Rules. (Perfect for beginning characters and GMs!)

Every month since October of 2019 we have released one or two books on Drive-thrurpg and we plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. If you would like to get any of these new Flying Buffalo books be sure to visit our publisher page at Drive-Thru RPG.com

We’ve also printed a few books as well, including Alice in Weirdworld,  ElvenLords and Sewers of Oblivion.  All of those are available from Flying Buffalo.com and will soon be on Amazon.com as well.  Once the Covid Virus situation has gotten better and more of the stores are open, we’ll start getting some of these books printed and make them available in physical form. In the meantime, maybe your see a new release you’d like to download. Now is the perfect time to try out a solo adventure if you can’t get together with your gaming group!

Monsters! Monsters! Kickstarter and new T&T solo announcements

Alice in Weirdworld T&T solo ( with mini T&T rules)

TtT2sainyukou pdf

This all-new Tunnels & Trolls solitaire adventure is based on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and is the first T&T solo we’ve published ever based on an existing written work.  Play Alice or a character of your own design as you chase the rabbit into a weird world that resembles Wonderland, but is strangely different in many ways. Can you get to the Queen and escape Weirdworld, or will get trapped there forever? The book also uses over 30 of the orgianl Sir John Tenniel illustration from the two Lewis Carrol Alice books.  There are also additional illos in the solo that match the style of Tenniel’s art.

This new book also includes the 10 page Tunnels & Trolls Mini Rules, which allows you to play this solo adventure without the regular T&T Rulebook and 3 pre-rolled characters you can use in the adventure. This book is the perfect introduction for new players. 64 pages and this is being solicited to stores and distributors. We should have some advance copies at Origins and GenCon too.

 

Monsters! Monsters! and the Toughest Dungeon in the World return anew via Kickstarter

KS Monsters Deluxe image crop

In 1976 Ken St Andre, the creator of the 2nd oldest role-playing game, Tunnels & Trolls created a companion game to T&T, called Monsters Monsters! It was first published by Metagaming Concepts and then again by Flying Buffalo in 1979. The game remained unchanged from then until now.  In 1980 Judges Guild published The Toughest Dungeon in the World a solitaire adventure that was meant to be played with Monsters! Monsters! or Tunnels & Trolls. Since then several new editions of T&T have come out and Ken St Andre was inducted into the Origins Hall of Fame. Ken is one of the last standing creators of the first generation of role-playing game designers and is still working on the classic games he created.

Now it’s 2020 – Ken St. Andre has updated and created a new edition of Monsters! Monsters! and Toughest Dungeon in the World.  What’s new in these books?  Ken has updated and enhanced his classic solo adventure and the Monsters! Monsters! Rules.  The new M! M! rules lists 38 monster kindreds you can play, gives you their dice modifiers and now each monster has a special power unique to its kindred. Each monster is described in a separate section. Its also better organized and easier to use. (For example – now the monsters are separated into humanoid and non-humanoid types)  There are two character sheets you can use along with specialized charts that allow you to roll up  various types of Monsters based on many common frpg environments.

This new edition of the Toughest Dungeon solo is at least 44 pages long and will keep any player busy for a lot of adventure in caverns and tunnels deep below Trollworld. The Lord of Shadows dwells in the depths – can you avoid his power or will you be corrupted by it?  One other thing we should add is that you can play this solo with the Tunnels &Trolls rules or the Monsters! Monsters! rules, so you don’t have to learn an whole new rpg to play it.

Steve Crompton, who has worked as Flying Buffalo’s Art Director since the 1990’shave enhanced it with new illustrations and graphics more suitable for  a monster-mash solo adventure. Most of the illustrations in the book are by Phil Longmierer, a long-time fantasy artist who specializes in drawing monsters that perfectly fit the tone and style of Ken’s creative writings. This new edition is at least 44 pages long and will keep any player busy for a lot of adventure in caverns and tunnels deep below Trollworld. The Lord of Shadows dwells in the depths – can you avoid his power or will you be corrupted by it?  One other thing we should add is that you can play this solo with the Tunnels &Trolls rules or the Monsters! Monsters! rules, so you don’t have to learn an whole new rpg to play it.

Few RPGs still have the opportunity for its original designer to work on a new versions of their classic works over 40 years later.  Don’t miss out on being a part of a piece of gaming history – the return of Monsters! Monsters! and a chance to explore “The Toughest Dungeon in the World!” (No matter what edition you get!)

Here’s link to the Monsters! Monsters! Kickstarter – it’s live now, so get in now and see the various formats that the M!M! Rules and Toughest solo are being offered. Although this isn’t an official Flying Buffalo Kickstarter, Ken ans Steve are a big part of  Flying Buffalo and Flying Buffalo will be carrying and selling these two books once the Kickstarter is over. Part of the reason for this Kickstarter being separate from Buffalo is that there is that Rick Loomis’ estate is in probate since his passing in August and it was decided that it would be more secure keeping this separate.  But we can tell you that there will be more Kickstarters from Buffalo to help celebrate its 50th Anniversary!

Flying Buffalo and T&T: an Update

Happy Holidays all!  This month, we thought we’d give you an update on the latest developments on the T&T front. As you probably know, Rick Loomis passed away at the end of August and it left a big hole in hearts and in the operations of Flying Buffalo. But his family and the rest of the Buffalo team have carried on forward and since then we manged to be represented at the Essen show in Germany and have continued to run Play-By-Mail games, solicit Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes to the retailers, keep on top of our social media, ship orders and even come out with some new products!  Here’s our three most release releases all related to T&T…

T&T Dec 2019

Newest Release: T&T Solo Guidelines: HOW TO WRITE A SOLO ADVENTURE
This new book was just put up on Drive-thru a week or two ago and is a collection of the T&T solo (and GM) Dugeon design Guidelines. Now you can take advantage of the knowledge and experience of some of the legends that created the solitaire adventure genre and learn how to craft your own adventures. This 45 page primer includes material written by Rick Loomis, Ken St Andre and Michael Stackpole. Learn the secrets to creating a good solo and get a glimpse at a piece of rpg history that few fans ever got to see; the legendary Solo Adventure Guidelines for Writing T&T Solitaires. HERE’S A LINK DIRECTLY TO THE PDF. 

A GM ADVENTURE – Trollstone Caverns: Lair of the Silver Serpant
This adventure by Ken St Andre is meant for 1st level and other beginning characters. You go to the fabled Trollstone Caverns,  lair of the legendary Silver Serpent, and also for a large clan of Uruks—the Scarlet Wolf Clan. To these caverns you have come in search of adventure, loot, or possibly even the venom of the Silver Serpent.  We have incuded the T&T Mini-Rules, which  shows you how to create characters, do combat and run an adventure.  There are also 4 pre-rolled characters that come with this book and 2 blank character sheets that you can copy and use to create your own character.  HERE’S A LINK DIRECTLY TO THE PDF.

A SOLO ADVENTURE: Deluxe Elven Lords
This expanded edition of this rare solo (now more than double the size of the original 1990 version) includes lots of new art created especially for this adventure by award-winning illustrator Liz Danforth. (This book also includes the T&T mini-rules)
Gull, the largest city on the isle of Phoron welcomes you once again.  Ignore the painted barbarians lurking in the jungles surrounding the city and try to forget about the annual pirate raids, and the criminal gangs running cutthroat smuggling rings. You needn’t even worry about the horror to the north despoiling Elven tombs. Truth is, if you wanted nice, you would have stayed at home. Gull and its environs are once again at their best in this collection of interlocking adventures, now expanded with new paths, characters and dangers by best-selling Michael Stackpole.  HERE’S A LINK DIRECTLY TO THE PDF.

THESE ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON DRIVE-THRU RPG: Right now we are putting out these out exclusively on Drive-Thru RPG, but eventually we’ll be  issuing printed versions of these books. The delay is due to the settling of Rick Loomis’s estate and making sure all the proper legal steps have been taken before we actually print any new material.  Don’t worry though – we anticipate this will be worked out in the near future.  But if you can’t wait till summer you can download all of these right now.

Ok that’s the latest from your friends at Flying Buffalo! Stay well and have a great Christmas, Hanukkah or however you celebrate the Holidays!  Have you gotten any of these books yet?  Did you enjoy them? Let us know your  thoughts below.

Rick_2008_cropped_copy

MEMORIAL GATHERING FOR RICK LOOMIS OCT 19th

Everyone is invited to a public memorial service for Rick Loomis to be held at Scottsdale, AZ at the church that Rick attended for many years and worked as a Camp Councilor at.

Rick was President of Flying Buffalo for 49 years, President of GAMA and the PBMA on several occasions and attended conventions all over the United States and Europe.
Rick was probably the very first person to ever own a computer that was devoted to running just a game (1972). He published the 2nd oldest RPG: Tunnels & Trolls, wrote the first T&T solo adventure, brought the Nuclear War Card Game back to the public eye,published the Citybooks and Grimtooth’s Traps and published numerous other games, dice and rpg materials.  He is missed by many.

We invite people from the gaming industry and his friends and family to attend and join together as a community to honor Rick’s life and accomplishments.

If you are interested in speaking at this gathering please contact us at skcrompton@gmail.com and your request will be forwarded to the family.
Location:
United Methodist Church
4140 N Miller Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251
the service is on October 19th 2019 at 11 AM
There may also be a meeting later that day at a local gamestore that was once owned by Flying Buffalo – Details on that to follow…
Memorial donations can still be made to Rick’s Gofundme page at:
Thank you.

We miss you Rick and the Buffalo is still Flying!

Rick Loomis pic 5 mspe

By now many of you may have heard the sad news that Rick Loomis, President of Flying Buffalo and a gaming industry legend, passed away on Aug 23rd, just a few hours before his 72nd birthday. Rick created and ran Flying Buffalo for almost 50 years, and was also President of GAMA (Gaming Manufacturers of America) on several occasions.

Rick’s loss leaves a huge hole in our hearts and Flying Buffalo. Rick was our mentor, our friend (a brother for his sisters) and the intermediary between the high-flying goals of the creative team and the real world. He helped us stay on track and reminded us of the limits of our budgets. Rick also made sure that whatever we created would be something that players would want. And many, many times he made suggestions that made a game more playable or an adventure more usable. We will miss Rick every single day, and we plan to honor his wishes and hopes for the future of Flying Buffalo going forward.

So What Happens now?
Rick’s sisters and the entire Buffalo team are committed to continuing to process and ship out your Kickstarter and other orders. In fact just today I did another 25 orders and they are now in shipping, ready to be packaged up. And tomorrow we’ll be taking 40 finished orders to the post office. As of now, we only have about 175 MSPE orders left to ship out of the original 675 we started with. And we will continue to ship out your orders until all of them have gone out. After that, we will move on to doing the same thing for Elvenlords the other Kickstarter that needs to be completed.

Is Flying Buffalo going to Keep publishing?
Down the road there will also be new products for T&T, MSPE, Nuclear War, and Catalyst books like new Traps and Citybooks. They may not come as quickly as we’d like right now, as there is a lot to do in regards to taking care of Rick’s estate and Flying Buffalo. But rest assured, we are soldiering onward. That’s what Rick wanted us to do – and we plan to do just that. We have numerous projects in various stages of completion and we will find a way to bring those forward.

Please feel free to post your comments below and if you want to contribute to help with Rick’s medical bills, funeral arrangements and other outstanding bills that have accrued due to Rick’s illness, you can contribute to Ricks GOFUNDME 

Thank you all for your concern, your patience and your belief in Rick’s dream – Flying Buffalo.

Steve Crompton – Manager Flying Buffalo

Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes, A T&T comic & more!

MSPE Kickstarter banner
A lot has gone on since the last time we posted here, so its high time for an update. Let’s start with the latest news and then we’ll move on to news on projects we have previously discussed on this blog…

 NEW – The Combined Edition of Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes – Some of you may be unfamiliar with this classic RPG. Written by best-selling author Michael Stackpole back in 1983 when he was an employee of Flying Buffalo. This game is based on the T&T system, and allows players to adventure on Earth from the 1800’s to the 1990’s (and beyond).  It was meant to let you play in Sherlock Homes Victorian era, Indiana Jones Pulp adventures and James Bond cold war Spy missions.

Several Adventures (both for gm and solo play) were published for MSPE as it came to be known. There were two printings of the rulebook, the first edition, by Flying Buffalo and the second edition by Sleuth Publications in 1986. The books were very much the same, but there were differences. The Buffalo edition had a gorgeous color cover and painting,  there was a section in the book for how to play T&T using MSPE and there was some different art and a full page character sheet. The Sleuth edition had a plain black & white cover, was missing the T&T section and had optional rules for aging, 13 pre-rolled characters (with art by Liz Danforth) a special folding character sheet, some new art and some corrections to the rules,

We now have a Kickstarter for the printing of a combined edition of MSPE that will include the corrected rules and all the different material from both editions of MSPE collected into one book.  We are also going to add new material, some of it by Mike Stackpole.

If you are a Tunnels & Trolls player you should get this book to see how T&T evolved to allow for guns, grenades, cars, planes and tech skills. And you can easily adapt the MSPE rules for use with your T&T characters and campaigns. Trolls with grenade launchers? Elves with machine guns? Why not!

Here is the link that will take you directly to the MSPE Kickstarter.

T&T Blog blog comic

A Tunnels & Trolls Comic is in the works!
Meanwhile Hirukoa Publishing House in Spain is publishing a Spanish version of T&T and to go with that they are going to publish an ENGLISH language T&T full color comic that will include the T&T mini-rules and a solo adventure in each issue.  They are planning six issues to start.

The comic will follow the fantasy adventures of a group of T&T characters as they travel across Trollworld.  Flying Buffalo will be selling this publication once it comes out and it may be available at other outlets as well, including in Europe. We’ll provide more details as this project develops.

 

T&T Blog 2019 A

Vaults of K’Horror – This 88 page gm adventure and solo came back from the printers and were shipped to all the Kickstarter backers all over the world.  Everyone seemed to love the book and many a player character has been lost in the ruined city of K’Horror.  But at least they had fun getting there!

Elven Lords –  Liz Danforth has completed all the black & white artwork and Steve Crompton has completed the layout.  What remains is completing the coloring of the black and white art (by Steve) and the completion of the paintings for the book that Liz is working on.  Progress continues and we will have another update on this great project in the near future.

OK that’s the latest new from Trollworld – and that’s a lot of developments going on!
Please be sure to check out the MSPE Kickstarter and let us know your thoughts below.

Vaults of K’Horror now shipping to the Kickstarter backers!

Khorror Ken and Steve crop
Steve Crompton here – We are overdue for an update and so here it is. Great news about Vaults of K’Horror – the book has been printed, we have it back, and it is now being shipped to the backers. That means if you ordered one, it may have already been mailed to you and is on its way.

We also have the printed copies of Uncle Ugly’s Underground and we got the signed bookplates back from the UK.  Those were signed by author Andy Holmes, artist Simon Tranter and Ken St Andre and Steve Crompton.

To help things out a bit, I volunteered to spend a few hours to help get some more of Vaults shipped out, so I went over the Flying Buffalo on a day that the regular shipper Bill was not there. Rick Loomis had printed out 57 shipping orders for Vaults. I put them together and sealed them up. However I decided it might be fun to add a little extra to the packages I did.  So some of you may get an extra little goodie in your package. (It is NOT one of my comics)  If you do get the goodie – then you’ll know if was one I put together.

20181117_Steve collating sml

Here I am at Buffalo putting together the packages. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it…

Then we loaded them in Rick’s car with a another big batch of Vaults that Bill had put together the previous day. There were well over 100 packages to be shipped. Rick and Bill had already shipped out another batch a couple of days prior. So it won’t be too long until all the books will be hitting the streets. (Shipping within the US is being done first)

20181117_Steve collating2 sml

In the meantime if you weren’t part of the Kickstarter you CAN buy the PDF of Vaults right now at Drive thru RPG.  (The link will take you directly to the page were you can download the Vaults of K’Horror.) In the near future the printed edition of the book will be available at Flying buffalo.com and on Amazon.

Vault of Horrors ad jpg
Now back to work on Elven Lords… lots of digital coloring to do for me and no doubt more art coming in from Liz.  Let us know if you got your Vaults of K’Horror yet!
