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!
â€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 â€œA Coon Band Contestâ€ 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.May 9, 2016 at 12:22 pm #650073ThistledownJohn

Hurray! I knew this game would be sufficiently “old-school” when I heard Jon say, “…we’ll go by rolling the characteristics then working out the best type of character to play.” 😀May 9, 2016 at 12:53 pm #650074
I gave them some flexibility. You can’t be too strict these days 😉
Speaking of old school, I’m listening to your RQ2 adventure right now.May 9, 2016 at 2:14 pm #650075lordof1

I just re-listened to this. Great fun! Thanks again, Jon – more T&T soon I hopeMay 9, 2016 at 4:58 pm #650076
Well, I’m sure I could be persuaded.May 9, 2016 at 7:44 pm #650077lordof1

You know a fleshlight isn’t the same as a torch, don’t you?May 9, 2016 at 9:30 pm #650079Lucky_Strike

Pancake day. Yikes.
Although nothing quite so awful as the return of the Lamia voice.
Is trips and roll again on character creation part of this edition or just the new deluxe T&T?May 9, 2016 at 10:09 pm #650080

TARO started after 5th edition was printed, I believe, one of Ken St Andre’s rules tweaks. Might have been in Sorcerers Apprentice magazine or Ken’s TnT fanzine. It’s not part of the 5th edition rules as written, but it’s a nice little boost and doesn’t come up too often, usually.May 9, 2016 at 11:55 pm #650081Slartibartfast

I thought this was going to be a Deathtrap Equalizer style dungeon when BJB started mentioning dimensions and shifting streets etc…
Lots of fun! I’m looking forward to more!May 10, 2016 at 6:35 am #650082
The shifting streets and all that is from my old campaign setting of Drollport. Once they get to the dungeon it’s *mostly* straight from the book.
The adventure is available as a pretty cheap PDF if you want to follow along at home 🙂May 11, 2016 at 5:52 pm #650083
