If you are a Kickstarter pledger to the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls RPG, you may know this already, but for those of you that don’t know, the Magic Beta system has been released as a download to the Kickstarter pledgers that purchased a copy of the rules. Right now, most of them are downloading and reading through the new magic rules and spell book, a total of 72 pages of pure rpg delight.
We hope to get their feedback, corrections and suggestions, all in an effort to make Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls that much batter – that much more playable and maybe even a bit more fun.
We’re still pushing hard to get the rest of the book done. At this point the core rules are finished (though they’ll need final tweaks, corrections and polish). The Trollworld section is also done and it includes the first comprehensive overview of Trollworld, a solo adventure for dead characters and a gm adventure set in one of the newly explored continents. What’s left is the editing of the elaborations, the cover, some other art and the layout and final polish. So we are getting there. We are sorry about the delay, but the scope of the project got bigger than any of us imagined, The results though wiil be the greatest edition of T&T ever.
Meanwhile, feel free to post your comments here about magic, the game or any questions you have regarding the new rules. If you have the Magic Beta, enjoy. If you don’t, you can still pre-order the rules from email@example.com and get an advanced copy of the beta rules via pdf.
