'Tis God gives skill, but not without men's hand: He could not make Antonio Stradivarius's violins without Antonio.

This is not your typical “kill everybody and get everything you can get” adventure. Indeed, quite the opposite is true. It’s to the players advantage to find non-violent solutions to the finer points. Temple of the Trolls strikes the delicate balance between having enough brawn to get in, yet brains to get out.

Rough notes on a dying man’s map start you on your quest for Grommick, a Trollish Blacksmith and mighty weapon-maker without human peer who possesses the skill to forge a magic sword. Legends maintain that a stout warrior with a fearless heart and a matchless arm can attain such a weapon.

Written one Sunday afternoon, John Nelson utilized the DDD 6.0 and created a genre of Eamon guaranteed to take a month of Sundays to crack, it you don’t know what you’re doing. If you like snooping into every nook and cranny, this it the one you’ve been waiting for.

Used with Matthew Clark's kind permition.
