All on your lonesome and you want to play T&T? Well, how about a couple of T&T Solitaire Adventures? The book is the gamemaster, and each can be played many times. The solo adventures listed here are coded for difficulty, number & type of characters permitted within. "War" means warrior; "Wiz" means magic-user; "any" means any character class allowed (warrior, wizard, or rogue). "L1-3" means it is for 1st through 3rd level characters. "MM" means Magic Matrix is included.
(To see black & white gifs of the solo adventure covers, and a color picture of the box set, click here.
Note: some of the solitaire adventures and other adventures are currently unavailable in hardcopy. You can buy many of them on DrivethruRPG. If you buy one or more of them using a link from here, Flying Buffalo gets a commission. So take a look!
Sadly, errors seem to be inevitable when writing and publishing a solo adventure. Click here for our page of errata.
Note that Naked Doom by Ken St Andre is available again.
Trollhammer: This is a solo adventure for T&T created by Ken St Andre just for our friends at Texicon in Dallas, Karl & Kevin Pajak. They printed up 1500 copies (and numbered them all) and gave one to every attendee at Texicon in 2013. Recently they gave me a stack of leftover copies. I could sell them, but it seems only fair that since they were given to me for free, I should give them away more or less for free also. So.... if you buy anything else from Flying Buffalo, you can have a copy of Trollhammer for five cents. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you buy Trollhammer for five cents, you are supposed to buy something else at the same time. Anything else! Here is a link to purchase Trollhammer for five cents:
AGENT OF DEATH
Our biggest solo adventure yet. 64 pages. 350 paragraphs. Originally published as a shorter version. Something is stealing the magic of Trollworld and Lerotra'hh Empress of Khazan has chosen you to track down the cause and save the realms. Only $11.95

We recently did a successful kickstarter to create a new, Deluxe version of T&T. As part of the kickstarter,
Ken announced that if anyone purchased his original first edition rules for an outrageous price, he would write a new solo adventure intended for the
first edition (it is playable with any version of the rules). We are giving a free pdf of this to each of the backers of our kickstarter, but we have
printed up a few hard copies. Note: this has a black & white cover, and is printed on individual sheets of paper which are stapled together. It was
intended as a free pdf giveaway. But we printed up a few hard copies, and if you'd like one, it is $10. Yeah, that's a lot, compared to all the fancy
ones with the color covers. But when we print them ten at a time, our cost increases greatly!

There were two kinds of "pocket sized" adventures. The ones we did (Goblin Lake, Circle of Ice, Abyss) which were completely different from any other published adventure (and which are now out of print, although you can get a photocopy of the Abyss adventure with the T&T Bonus Pack #1), and the ones done by Corgi, an English publisher, under license from us (all the double books plus city of terrors). When Corgi discontinued the line, we bought their remaining stock.
If we still have a solo in stock with the same name as one of the corgi solos, it's really the same adventure. They used completely different artwork, and they included a short synopsis of the rules in the front. (So you could just buy one or more of the Corgi solos and not bother to buy the rules). Also the pocket sized version of the rules have the names of the spells changed, since the Corgi editor thought the "silly spell names" was a turn-off.
The Corgi books are "paperback book sized" books, and our books and rulebook are all 8 1/2" x 11" in size. Which you prefer is mostly a matter of convenience.
We also did a special solo adventure ELVEN LORDS by Michael Stackpole, with art by Elizabeth Danforth. This was a limited edition book, and all copies are signed and numbered. (Sorry, sold out)

A solitaire adventure for characters level 4 or higher. It is for any humanoid kindred - men, elves, dwarves, goblins, uruks, hobs, skeleton-men, etc. It is NOT for trolls, ogres, giants, centaurs or any of the beast kindreds. It is also not for wizards, although rogues with the ever useful "Take That You Fiend" spell are permitted.
The journey has taken months and it has stripped you down to the bare essentials of your life - your weapons, your clothing, and some indispensable tools that you can carry in a pack. There have been wrong turns and dead ends, but you are finally here at the village of Vvvarrr's Qiip, on the slower slopes of an immense mountain in the Khargish Range, far northeast of the city of Khazan. You have seen the dragon herself. You have seen the mighty Vvvarrr flying through the snow-laden clouds, scarcely more than a dark speck far above you. It hasn't been easy to reach this remote location, but the quest for eternal life is never easy.
