Tunnels & Trolls 4th Edition PDF Available from Flying Buffalo!

That's right, you can now get an official version of the T&T 4th edition rules from 1977 in PDF format directly from Flying Buffalo at their RPGNow / DriveThruRPG storefronts. This is really fantastic news given the quality of this rules set and the previous lack of PDF versions of the full T&T rules published by Flying Buffalo. I sincerely hope that this is a sign of more things to come. I've discussed many of the differences between the 4th, 5th, and 7th edition rules in previous posts. There are really only minor changes between 4th and 5th and the 4th edition rules contain many elaborations that are missing in the later editions (especially 7th). The PDF is a 56 page scan of an original copy and is quite clean. It includes many wonderful illustrations by Liz Danforth (including the cover), Robin Carver, and Dan Carver that you won't find in later editions. What's even better is that you can get it for only $4!

Stay Alive! : T&T Powered Zombie Survival Game

Jerry Teleha of The Delving Dwarf is running a zombie survival solo game over at his Stay Alive site. The game uses a modified version of the T&T rules including some new character attributes tailored for such a game such as Guts, Stability, and Resistance.

You can help guide the main character, Officer Mickey, through the breakout of a zombie apocalypse in Toledo, Ohio. Will Mickey survive or end up just another shambling zombie?
