Ships and Swords? From Space Gamer 24? If so, I loved that one.

Thank you! That would be the one.

You know what would be a nice addition here or elsewhere one of these days? For one of us to sit down and go through all the Spacegamers and provide an index to where to find any and all articles related to TFT -- even among the issues that Steve doesn't own!

Here are some lists already compiled:

https://jeffro.wordpress.com/2012/06...e-gamer-27-31/

One more: Look under Linked Items: Relationship: Issues
https://rpggeek.com/rpg/445/fantasy-trip


Space and Fantasy Gamer's Guide probably already has everything, but its only hardcopy. I have it, so I can look up anything that's needed

Here is another idea: It may not be easily turned into a solo adventure, but consider it a challenge. You are in charge of a stronghold in the wilderness that frequently gets raided. You need to carefully consider how to allocate your resources: Low level fighters, high level fighers, wizards, stronger doors, traps, etc. Once you've placed you resources, randomly generated raiders attack and see how far they get. It could be a human or dwarven stronghold, or for a twist, an orc stronghold that gets raided by humans.

That sounds like a great microgame to me -- plus it would let you introduce mass combat and siege warfare rules to the game! Brilliant!

That sounds *very* serviceable. What I like best about your idea, is that it flips the *raid the enemy base* scenario on it's head; which is a refreshing idea.

Good creative thinking there Luguvalium.

I have not.

A young orc or orcs, followers of the Nameless One seeking sraash has never been explored in any adventure I know of.

I like solo game keywords a lot -- they're like "lock & key" quests in video RPGs.

As a consumer, Id grab that off the shelf at my FLGS and take it to the register in a heartbeat. Nice concept!
