Week Of The Troll: TrollsZine

The week of the troll may be drawing to a close but I couldn't call an end to the event without taking the opportunity to give a mention to TrollsZine, Elder Tunnels and, Pocket Troll.

Whilst there is another zine out there *cough* Hobbit Hole *cough*, these three are the only ones worth their salt and your buck, with TrollsZine being free free free... Did I mention it was free?
Stating the same fact four times within one sentence may seem a bit like overkill but given that certain unscrupulous parties have in the past tried to sell TrollsZine as their own for as much as $13, being clear on the fact that it is free seems important. So if you see someone out there trying to sell you a dead tree version of any of the issues or, worse yet, charge you for the PDF, feel free to report them to your local law enforcement. It is a scam, they are scam artists and, as a contributor to the first two issues I don't see why you should have to pay for something that has been given to be shared freely.

The scummy dealings of Jim Shipman aren't news however and, I don't want to get too tied up in them in this post. Instead I want to focus more on the great work and tireless contributions of the Tunnels and Trolls community to furthering the hobby.

TrollsZine is a prime example of this, being the product of material and time freely donated by people who really care about the game and, really enjoy sharing their passion. So why not download a copy... It's free after all. ;0).
