Everybody’s Doing It: Tunnels, Trolls and Kickstarter Projects … !

You know, it HAS to be said: Debbi — author and recovering lawyer that she is — does seem to be metaphorically leading the proverbial pack, bless her.

Mostly where she’s signed up with crowd-sourcing project, Kickstarter, to procure funding for her Sam McRæ series.

She’s not the only one, seemingly.

Did I ever tell you I used to play role-playing-games, many moons ago … ?

Well, I did: an especial favourite was the long since gone Tunnels & Trolls: the second such game ever published.

Cheap, cheerful … and leaving me, certainly, with a bucket of 6-sided dice that I’m fairly sure I’ve still got, somewhere … !

The thing is, though … ?

It’s not until I started veteran fantasy artist, Liz Danforth, on Twitter, that I found out something that interested me.

There’s a Deluxe Tunnels And Trolls reboot in the pipeline.

Well, THAT pleased me no end.

And even though I can’t contribute cash … ?

I can — if nothing else — plonk it in the sidebar, with Debbi and Kevin D’s Dropkixx poster.

Enjoy … !
