The Fellowship reunites! But why?…

The old gang plays dT&T as a group! Plus, who is the mystery guest?

The old gang plays dT&T as a group! Plus, who is the mystery guest?

Last week I had the pleasure of host an extremely rare gaming event, where  Ken St Andre, Liz Danforth, Rick Loomis, Bear Peters and myself (Steve Crompton) played a T&T adventure together as a group.  Though we’ve all played T&T together in part at one time or another, this is probably the first time that all 5 of us have played at the same time in the same game.  Liz, Bear and Ken probably hadn’t played together in 30 years.  We all had a great time, and Ken ran a terrific and exciting adventure as the rest of us tried to get down from the top of the castle to the basement to try to close a portal that was allowing Drats (half-dragon/half rats) to swarm into the castle and wreck havoc.  I shall never forget it!  Great fun for all.  The event was even filmed, so maybe one day we’ll get to see that footage.

But the big question is WHY we were all gathered? What is the Fellowship of the Troll up to now?  We really can’t tell you anything at the moment as its all hush-hush. BUT in the picture above you’ll see that one of the other players  in our game has been blurred out of the picture. We can’t reveal his identity – yet. But some time in the future (perhaps soon) all will be revealed. Something cool is about to happen, but for now you’ll just have to guess and wait.

Also during the rare Fellowship gathering, four of us decided to take a visit to the old Flying Buffalo game store, which is now called the Game Depot.  Dave Petit  was the manager of the Flying Buffalo Game store, and now he owns the Game Depot.  We bought a game, said hi to the folks there and dropped off a couple of dT&T rulebooks; then we headed back to my place to play some more.

Ken, Bear, Liz and Steve go to the Game Depot for a visit.

IN OTHER NEWS:  If you haven’t been getting or reading the dT&T Kickstarter Updates,  I wanted to be sure to add that as far as Flying Buffalo is concerned all the Kickstarter books and items have long since been shipped.  If you still don’t have yours, you need to contact Flying Buffalo and let them know.  A few items did come back as non-deliverable and we’ve tried to contact those people with no luck.  So if you are one of those few remaining Kickstarter backers, let us know.

OK that’s it for now – let the speculations begin!  What’s YOUR guess as to what secret project is the Fellowship of the Troll up to?  Let us know below…

  1. Let me see… Does that have anything to do with Dave Petit?

    Hmmm… could be, but probably not…

    All sorts of people I could guess at and hope for – Larry DiTillio? Mike Stackpole? Ugly John Carver? – but I suspect I’d be awfully wide of the target. Still, exciting times for T&T fans after so long!

  4. SSCrompton

    YES – that much is certain Jon!

    Meanwhile, here’s a link to my latest fantasy-related Youtube video. I did the art and co-wrote it…
