  • OTHER RPG NEWS: Troika!: An Interview with Daniel Sell and a review
  • DESCRIPTION: The interdimensional warehouse of the cruel wizard, Whalgravaak, towers over the bad part of the city of Troika. Abandoned long ago, its vast store rooms of possible treasure are watched over by dangerous interlopers and sinister hangers-on. This first book in a new series of “1:5 Troika! Adventures” oozes with adventure, is soaked in danger, and marks a return to the rotten roots of British fantasy gaming. Includes: a traditional dungeon crawl (interconnected levels, nonlinear exploration, and resource management), over a dozen new enemies, many surreal encounters, and all of it depicting a horrible tale of logistics gone wrong. The Troika Intro Bundle is not a brand new product but instead a recent product designed to introduce gamers to Troika! with a small discount for buying from the publisher (ships from the UK). PCs experience a rich and vibrant world of adventure through a complete yet wildly open role-playing game using just six-sided dice. PCs fly through mystic space, get lost in infinite cities of the gods, and meet weird and wonderful people. In Slate & Chalcedony, the PCs investigate twinned and twisted wizard towers of hidden secrets in almost 70 weird and worrisome rooms. The PCs strive to save the world from a slow and choking death. Includes new and unpleasant spells.
