Tunnels & Trolls: Uncle Ugly’s Underground 01 – There Ain’t No Such Thing as a Free Lunch
Separated by many miles, yet brought together through remarkable advances in SCIENCE, the Whartson Hall Aethernauts embark on a journey of whimsical old-fashioned fantasy! and death!
”It’s all here in your hot little hands…”
Welcome to the metagame plot device of Honest Abdul’s U-Delve Dungeons, where your hardy adventurers can pay to enter a random dungeon and delve for riches. And boy, will they pay.
This time the destination is Uncle Ugly’s Underground, a Tunnels & Trolls adventure from 1978. We used the 5th edition rules, but the game is now available in a spiffy new deluxe edition you can read all about over on Flying Buffalo’s website.
Music is part of a 1900 recording of “A Coon Band Contest” by Sousa’s Band, in the public domain.
The Whartson Hall Aethernauts play through the Google+ Hangouts facility rather than face-to-face in a room. Any reduction in sound quality is due to the wizards not being high enough level.
At various points through these sessions and with various characters you’ll hear the following unfortunate band of chums:
Amelia, Roger, Nick, Mark and Jason. The GM is Jon, who manages not to get horribly killed.
