The Troll God (aka Ken St. Andre) run auctions of different items that he has in his possession for the members of Trollhalla (link is above). Recently one of the items auctioned was Ken's personal copy of Tunnels & Trolls Second Edition. Being that the 1st edition only had 100 copies printed, the 2nd edition is also extremely rare.
I won this particular auction ;)
Later this week I'll post some pics of this treasure, but suffice to say this is friggin' awesome! Yes, its a bit used and worn, but it is graced by Ken's signature.
So, I now have a reprint of the 1st edition of Tunnels & Trolls, an original of the 2nd edition, and original of the 4th edition, and of course 5.0, 5.5, 7.0 and 7.5 editions. Woot!
The comparison of solo experiences using the different rules (flashing back to the poll I ran earlier) will probably produce fruit in a week or so... a week off from work should allow for some productivity ;)
