Tunnels & Trolls: Uncle Ugly's Underground - There Ain't No Such Thing as a Free Lunch


Image


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 I'M ABOUT TO BE WARNED FOR MY USE OF LANGUAGE!!! 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.

The Players:
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.

Download:
Session 1
Session 2
Session 3
Session 4
Session 5
Session 6
Session 7
Session 8

That's all for now, though we may well return to T&T at some point.

For anyone wondering what "Music is part of a 1900 recording of “A I'M ABOUT TO BE WARNED FOR MY USE OF LANGUAGE!!! Band Contest” by Sousa's Band, in the public domain" might mean, I suspect that the forum's profanity filter is objecting to the title of an instrumental piece from over a century ago :D

Thanks for posting these here - it was rather entertaining to have them on in the background while I was working on some stuff.

Spoiler: show
And who'd have thought that the cruel one would survive the entire adventure :)

Anyway, here's hoping that we'll get to hear some more T&T games in the future!

It's a sanity blasting ending for some and no mistaking!

Given that a fine is a sum of money paid as a penalty for an offence, I'd agree with you.

It sounded like the lamia voice produced the strongest reaction.
