The Snollygoster: A T&T Newsletter

The Snollygoster is a free "infrequent" Tunnels & Trolls newsletter/fanzine started by Charlie Fleming of Rarr! I'm a Monster Publishing and Hobb Sized Adventures. The first issue was released in September of 2013. Issues 2 and 3 were released in December 2013 and March 2014. Three issues in seven months is a really good start for a free fanzine, especially one billed as being infrequent.

Each issue of The Snollygoster contains 4-12 pages of T&T content including descriptions of new monsters, spells, magical items, and equipment, optional rules, GM advice, short stories, GM adventures, and even solo adventures. There has been a wide variety of material offered in the first three issues from a number of contributors including Charlie Fleming (of course), Mark Thornton, Stefan Jones, Ken St. Andre, and more. My current favorite article is from Issue #3, Bikinis, Boards, and Bongos, a T&T variant  set in the wild world of 1960s beach movies. Plenty of gonzo action to be had here for sure. Then of course there's the new character type, the Beermancer with a complete set of new spells from Issue #2. Much of the material is pretty tongue-in-cheek, but that is the true flavor of T&T.

You can get your copies of The Snollygoster from the Rarr! I'm a Monster Publishing T&T storefront at RPGNow. Remember The Snollygoster is offered for free so there is nothing to lose and lots of great new T&T material to gain. While you're there, have a look at the other excellent T&T solo adventures and supplements that are available.

  1. Love the coverage of this material. It's part of what makes Tunnels and Trolls so great to me.Roleplaying, fast paced and as much fun as you can handle.
