The Fantasy Trip was arguably the original fantasy RPG out there. Steve Jackson wrote it waaaaaaay back before most of you were probably even gaming (it was before I was gaming, I admit). The Kickstarter for a new version was a big success, but what if you weren't able to get in on that? No fear! The pre-order is here!
From the website:
In 1977, Steve started work on his first roleplaying game, The Fantasy Trip. It was published by Metagaming, and for a brief time it even rivaled D&D for popularity. The Fantasy Trip (TFT) was published first as a series of microgames and, later, expanded with full-size books.
Fast forward to 2017. Steve regained rights to his work! He’s now working on the Legacy Edition . . . what TFT should have been when it was first published 40 years ago.
The Fantasy Trip is an “old-school” RPG, with easy character design, realistic tactical combat, and an emphasis on story. It is unabashedly focused on dungeon crawls and arena battles. It’s a great introduction for your friends who are new to roleplaying, because it’s so easy to get started.
