T&T 7.5 - Finally!
Posted by Scott Malthouse
I had quite a pleasant surprise yesterday. I took my regular Friday trip to the gaming store after work, looking forward to spending my hard-earned cash on a few Magic boosters. I decided to wander downstairs and check out some RPGs, as you do.
The first thing that surprised me was the amount of females in the store. Usually there's a couple, but they actually outnumbered males on this occasion. Could it have been because of the layout change? Had someone come up with a genius way to set out the bookshelves as to attract the fairer of the species? Whatever it was, it was cool. But I digress, as that wasn't the surprise.
So as I was browsing the RPGs I noticed something. I noticed a font. I recognised it straightaway and checked the label to confirm - it was Tunnels and Trolls 7.5.
Now, this may not seem unusual to many of you, but to me it was a big deal. That store hadn't stocked T&T for around 10 years and now they have it. What's more is that they even had the Delver's Pack too.
Upon purchase I thanked the assistant for getting it in stock and he told me that had been a keen interest in the game. Pretty sweet, right?
Oh yeah, I also saved a child from a burning building, but whatever.
