Yesterday was the first Tuesday of the month. I have penciled that in for the monthly Magical History Tour event. Since March of last year, the system I have been exploring has been Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls, the most recent edition of the venerable Tunnels & Trolls game. The first Monday of the month is out because I am busy on Mondays, handing sundry responsibilities. And stopping into the local coffeehaus for lunch. 😉
I didn’t do much last night. It was a combination of feeling tired from a long walk and not feeling like playing. So, I’m going to do what I have done in the past and extend the event over several days. That way I can keep playing until I satisfy my need for Tunnels & Trolls gameplay.
When I start the event every month, I check the status of each character’s story. As a running joke I note that my first Tunnels & Trolls character, Basio, is still dead. He died in August on the blade of Golden Birgir’s cutlass. Life is cheap and strange on my version of Trollworld.
So, I am preparing to play the second Tunnels & Trolls character I created, Adasen the Goblin Scoundrel. He is the folk hero (the background from Fifth Edition D & D) of Goblin Lake. I was stuck for months on what kind of adventure to create for him. I feel that Trollworld Goblins resemble kappa from Japanese folklore, so I have been using elements from the tales about them.
