Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls

Watermarked PDF

This is it! The new and improved, Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls. T&T is the second ever fantasy role playing game, and the easiest to use. This book contains everything you need to play the game solo (with the many solo adventures) or with a group of friends. Includes a lot of extra material and descriptions of the worlds played in by the designer and his friends back in the late 1970's.

The first 166 pages are the core rules, followed by the Elaborations section which has optional rules and systems you can pick and choose from to add to your T&T games. There is also a 16 page full color section which includes color maps of Trollworld, Khazan, Khosht and Knor along with other paintings and maps.   There is a 50 page Trollworld section that includes descriptions of locations on every major continent and three cities, plus a detailed Trollworld timeline.  The book also includes a solo adventure that gives you the chance to bring dead characters back to life and a GM adventure on the continent of Zorr, plus a detailed weapons glossary and much much more - over 380 pages of material.
 Note that this version of the rules does not yet have the internal links, BUT once we have that done, you will be able to download an updated copy of the PDF for no extra charge.

Hello, I'm interested by T&T but I wonder if this rpg is designed to be played with miniatures ? I'm looking for a good solo RPG/Miniature games, seeing in the table of content that there is a section about miniatures, may be your game could be the one I'm looking for.

So, is material from older edition difficult to convert to DT&T?

Not at all. One of my primary concerns has always been that everything remain at least somewhat compatible.

More than a little disappointed that they didn't give stats for half-elves, despite placing a line for them on the chart detailing expanded kindred types in chapter 13. It also doesn't give stats for half-orcs... although despite those glaring omissions, it DOES give stats for the dwarf/elf hybrid unimaginatively called the dwelf. Aside from that, satisfied with the book so far.

Whether you are new to the game, or a long time player, drop by Vin's T&T TrollBridge ( ). There are boards for all versions of T&T. Come to learn, or teach, or just say hello!

I purchased the print hardcover at MEPACON in PA in March 2017. The book is very well done. The game is classic and great fun. It all in there. I do have one strong disappointment in the book. I don't like that the included solo adventure is based on real world Christian Mythology (Mythology NOT Theology). As a 35 year veteran gamer, and a Christian, I stay away from making a game out such things. I don't even use demons in my games. And I bought T&T specifically to play solo. I know I am the minority but there it is. You know, considering the casual posture the game rules tend to lean toward I was completely surprised in the choice the publishers made as the background in the solo adventure. This is not casual fare at all. Disappointing for me. I wound not have purchased the book for this reason if I had I taken a closer look.

This is just my PERSONAL view on background choice for the included solo adventure and not a reflection on the quality of the game or the physical book. Fans of T&T...See more

Robert R - you're not alone. I'm a Christian too and I hate all references to real world scenarios especially mainstream religious matters.

I was going to buy this but it says "Watermarked pdf". How is this watermarked? Is there going to be a stamp on every page? Is it just when you print it or is it even when reading it on an iPad or any pdf viewer? At $20 bucks if its obnoxious to read it I'd rather just spend the $40 and buy the softback version.

Does this contain the dungeon creation rules/tables etc?
Customer avatar

This contains everything you need to play the game. I don't recall that we ever had any "dungeon creation rules". But if Ken has written such a thing, I'm sure it is included. The book has 365 pages. I'll ask the others if there are any "dungeon creation rules"

Here's what is in the rules that is directly related to running or creating a dungeon:
Section 7 is about the hostile opposition, how to create and run enemies as npcs or players,
Section 10 (pgs 150-156) are about how to create and run a good GM adventure.
Section 13 covers how to create and run monsters and kindreds.
Section 14 covers languages for your world
Section 15.5 is a GM's guide to assigning talents
Section 16 covers how to use miniatures and virtual tabletops to run adventures
Section 17 includes treasure charts, Wandering Monster charts, and more info about dice rolling.

The Trollworld Atlas section pgs 227-283 list and describe numerous places, people and creatures that you can use in your dungeons or campaigns.

The rules also include a complete 17 page GM adventure that you can use as a starting point to create your own Dungeon

There are also extensive lists of weapons, armor, equipment and their prices and...See more

Yes, it will be available in print as soon as we finish shipping the print copies to all the kickstarter backers. Still shipping the overseas orders, and waiting for the hardbacks to get back from the bindery.

I backed this as a KickStarter, and got my physical copy in the mail earlier this week.
The wait will be worth it. As pretty as the PDF is, when you have the actual book in your hands, you will be amazed.

The color section is in the wrong position. After page 231 the 16 pages from the color section starts on the left side (if you print out the pdf). So the odd and even numbers are now on the wrong side for printing. And the map of the trollworld on page C6 and C7 will be printed back to back and you have to flip pages to see the whole map. That's ok if you view the pdf on the screen only (the color section seperates the trollworld intro from the trollworld timeline). But for those who want to print out the whole book, it would be better to start the color section after page 232.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
