My test prints of the newly republished versions of House in the Hills and The Tomb of Baron Gharoth arrived from Lulu today. They look pretty fantastic, if I do say so myself. Both solos are now available in softcover print and pdf versions at my Lulu storefront (http://stores.lulu.com/danhem35) and soon the Trollbridge storefront. Be aware that if you download a copy, it will not include the color covers. But if you send me a message with your email, I will send you pdf copies of the front and back covers. Here are the front covers and descriptions of each solo. The cover illustrations are by Jeremy Mohler (House in the Hills) and Joe Calkins (Tomb of Baron Gharoth).
House in the Hills
You were ambushed by a group of thugs on your way through the dense woods near your home. They took everything and left you for dead. You awoke to the sound of howling wolves and have been on the run ever since. It is now after sunset and your strength is failing. The wolves are closer that they have been all day. Suddenly, just ahead you see the outline of a small building on the next hilltop. It is illuminated by the moonlight, but all of the windows are dark. As you near it, you see the building is in a state of decay. But it may provide you shelter from the wolves until you can rest. There may even be weapons inside. Do you dare enter the HOUSE IN THE HILLS? House in the Hills is a solitaire adventure designed to be played using the Tunnels and Trolls game system. This solo adventure contains 138 paragraphs and is suitable for a single, low-level, humaniod warrior with 10-20 personal adds.
The Tomb of Baron Gharoth
The Baron has made you a very attractive offer. Enter his family tomb and retrieve the signet ring from the finger of his long-dead ancestor. He has offered you a substantial reward as well as the opportunity to keep any valuables you may find in your search of the crypts. It all sounds very simple until the Baron mentions that his great-great-great grandfather was also a necromancer. But before you can say another word, the Baron hands his guards a key and they lead you to THE TOMB OF BARON GHAROTH. The Tomb of Baron Gharoth is a solitaire adventure designed to be played using the Tunnels and Trolls game system. This solo adventure contains 249 paragraphs and is suitable for a single, low- to mid-level, humaniod warrior with 30-40 personal adds.
