Tunnels & Trolls Free Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

This is a short version of the full Tunnels & trolls Rules. It is sufficient to play the solitaire adventure, and to show your friends how to play with the GameMaster adventure.

Tunnels & Trolls is one of the easiest role playing games to learn and play. All you need are paper & pencil and some six-sided dice (at least 3). One of the best things about T&T is that you can play it solitaire, where the book is the gamemaster. Most of the following rules are written as if you are playing a solitaire adventure. If you are playing with a gamemaster, he or she will roll the dice for any opponents or monsters, and normally you will not be told the Monster Rating, or armor of your enemy, only what you might be able to see, and the total of any dice rolls.

Includes a complete solitaire adventure, Goblin Lake, by Ken St Andre

We used the Riverboad Adventure in our campaign. Our heros all died during the second encounter. As for the solo adventure, I still have not made it through successfully. [...]

I only got this item for purely nostalgic reasons. I bought and played this game as it came out. I loved it and it was perfect for a young aspiring DM [I Think I was 12 at the time]. It filled in for me between my regular D&D session [...]

I sometimes have trouble finding people who are available to play RPGs with me on a regular basis. When that happens, I turn to solo RPGs. While they are more prevalaent than they used to be, it's still kinda tough to find them. Tunnels and Trolls is [...]

I played Buffalo Castle and a few other solos with this when I was a young teen. It's a beautiful game, with just the right tone to encourage you to keep it fluid and fun. I couldn't find my actual character, but here's a pretty close approximat [...]

The Riverboat Adventure is great fun as an introductory adventure. I'm currently running this adventure with three newbies to RPGs and one veteran - all are having a blast and they can't wait to reconvene! And hey, it's free! (Note I'm not addressing [...]

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.
