Stretch Goals Have Arrived at the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls Kickstarter!

Of course, being the Trolls that they are, the stretch goals for the Deluxe T&T Kickstarter are currently hidden in the 3rd update, but that's why you have me ;)

Apparently someone paid $2,000 for Ken's copy of T&T 1e (I only paid $152 for Ken's personal copy of T&T 2e). Because of this generous collector, everyone that is supporting at a level that gets a soft or hard cover copy of the Deluxe T&T rules will also get a reprint copy of the T&T 1e rules. Very nice!

When it hits $50K (almost there) the following kicks in: "if we make our $50,000 milestone, Ken is going to write a solo adventure specifically for the 1st edition, and we will send a pdf of that adventure to all our backers. Plus Ken will include new spells in the spellbook that he has been dreaming up for the last couple days, and he will write a new section of the rulebook about using miniatures with T&T. (Also) we will include in the Deluxe T&T rulebook an 8-page tip-in of color plates. This will be in all the rulebooks. I don't know for sure yet what will be in this, but I'm pretty sure it will include the old cover from the City of Terrors solitaire. But wait! There's more!  When we make the $50k goal, Rick will recreate the famous "Official T&T Pencil - 1/2 Die Weapon When Sharpened". We will include one of these for everyone who has pledged $20 or more." - Phew!

Then at $60K: "We have been listening to your comments about wanting reprints of old adventures, and completion of adventures that were never completed. For our second milestone, if we reach $60k, we will reprint the City of Terrors solitaire adventure by Michael Stackpole, with the original cover (mentioned above) and we will send a pdf of this book to all our supporters. Plus we will reprint a new, updated version of Rick's Buffalo Castle solitaire, the very first solitaire adventure published for any role-playing game, and provide a pdf to all our supporters."

Finally (for now) at $75k:If we reach $75k, we will include a second 8-page tip-in of color art, at least half of which will be new, previously unseen art. Plus we will include an 11x17 poster with the art from the City of Terrors cover to everyone who has ordered Bjorni's Map of Trollworld (we'll mail them together). And we will reprint Ken's first solitaire adventure, Deathtrap Equalizer Dungeon, and include a pdf of it to every backer.

There's some nice stuff available in the stretch goals :)

  1. Thank you for covering this.

    The more they pile on the 1e PDF's and reprints, the more enticing this gets for me. (I owned Buffalo Castle back in the day, but never had any T&T rules to play it with.... I've always been curious about it, though.)

    My dilemma is... if I buy just the pdf edition, I won't play it. If I won't play it, it's not worth it. So that pushes me up to the perfect bound level where I actually have to think about it if I'm going to buy it at all!
