Tunnels & Trolls MMO on the horizon {T&T}



I don't usually talk about video games on this blog, but this is an exception to the rule. Tunnels & Trolls is being turned into an MMORPG, complete with everything that you love about the game including kindred and locations in Trollworld.


The game's working titles is Tunnels & Trolls: Rise of the Serpent God, and the story is said to revolve around the god-wizard Zweetz, who has created his own race of Cyruks to take over Trollworld. Players will have the chance to serve the Death Goddess herself as they embark on a massive adventure to destroy Zweetz once and for all.

The developer, Andris, has said that the new MMO will keep the same feel of the T&T tabletop game, right down to the unbalanced characters: "Don't think you can solo the game with a Fairy," said a spokesperson, "We will be keeping the same stats as in the [tabletop] game along with the same character types. Warriors will still get double hits on their armour and rogues can only learn new spells from wizards."

It's clear that Lichgames want to make TTROTSG as true to the source material as possible and I for one am hugely excited to play.

There's no word on release date yet, but I'll keep giving you all the news as it comes.
