The Riddling Reaver is a LOT of fun!  I have used his ship the Twice Shy in a number of different games and the random table of riddles is pretty cool too for those of us who are riddling compromised and would have been eaten by Gollum.

Useless factoid: In Danish the Riddling Reaver was called Tyven Med De 1000 Trick, the Thief With A 1000 Tricks. 

 

That game had so many fun bits, and the RR was such a mad bastard. He justified the trope where each location in an adventure is like a part of a reality-defying game show.

That's pretty cool.

 

I need to bust out the old books and play something set in Titan again ...

I was thinking nostalgic thoughts about Allansia myself. It's such an uncivilized place, compared to many other fantasy settings. There are no roads, borders or kings that are actual rulers of much, beside the city they live in.

Is that Port Blacksand I see there? Where the local police are trolls? Somethingsomething hive of scum and villany!

 

You're right, Allansia is a lot of fun as a setting!

If l remember my Out of the Pit correctly the Gonchong gave some pretty sweet stat bonuses (+2 SKILL and +4 STAMINA?) at the mere cost of your ability to take independent action.

If *I* remember correctly, it was +5 Skill, +5 Stamina, plus the fact it looked pretty cool as a piece of headgear. It also had SKILL 5, STAMINA 5 if you encountered it without a host - though of course it would then just try to get onto your head...

At FFF Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone asked the audience to shout out suggestions for miniatures they would like to see. The diminutive Jib Jib was quite popular but has been officially ruled out due to how tiny it would be. That and it's so simply it wouldn't feel right in a range of high quality sculpts with lots of details since it's basically a tribble on legs.

 

I'm really disappointed that got ruled out, Jib Jibs only appeared in a few Fighting Fantasies but they were one of my favourite creatures! Besides, if Warhammer's Cave Squigs can be made into miniatures without looking out of place, I'd have thought the Jib-Jib could be!

 

Incidentally, I can't remember which books they appeared in. I think there was one in "The Riddling Reaver". I think there was another one in Sorcery! book 4... googling seems to confirm these sightings. Can anyone point to any other adventures they appeared in? I've found a Wikia page that suggests there was one in Midnight Rogue, though after all these years I don't remember that very well.

 

Oh, and I don't quite agree with "a tribble on legs" - at least, they certainly didn't seem to reproduce like Tribbles. Unfortunately.

One jib-jib makes a horrifying racket. If they bred like tribbles half the world would be deaf!
