Nothing like Tortured Souls! When it comes to quality of writing, complexity of subject matter, presentation and polish etc. These are a simple classic white paper photocopy ‘zine. The type of thing most school clubs put out - A4 folded sheets to make the ‘zine A5 size, with a colour paper cover. The same sort of thing as say Beholder or The Oracle. The draw for some is that they present a little window into what happened before Beast Enterprises and Integrated Games. If the TS! DVD had been green lit, these two would have been on the disc.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

The main thing they have in common, content-wise, with the later magazine is that each has a solitaire dungeon in the same style as Tortured Souls! (i.e. a page of map sections). That's the only scenario in each, and they take over half the (rather small) 'zine. The first is by John Barrett, but I can't see an authorial attribution for the second, nor for Tortured Souls!

I make it $7:45 for each entry in that solo adventure, so I wouldn't buy (unless you fail your saving throw)

seems pretty high, but they don't come up often do they..

as a side grumble, that 15pound shipping seems positively reasonable compared to all the 40-50pound Ebay Global Shipping charges I see on random $10 magazines


Is the solo in this issue D&D, T&T or generic (or other)? I sent the seller this question a few days ago but no response and I cant find it via Goooooogle.

It clearly states at the start it is D&D. But, more importantly, it says DO NOT CHEAT! (Did anyone ever play solitaires and not cheat?)

D&D solos never seemed to take off - but only a couple of years later Warlock of Firetop Mountain and Fighting Fantasy was a massive hit. Everyone I knew at school had them and played them. I'm going to play through all the '70s ones (as there are only seven) to see how they developed, to see how they measure up, and to compare them to Warlock of Firetop Mountain.

Not worth it at that price unless there’s a Kazan Khan hidden in there that I missed. The last one was £50 cheaper and you got Kazan Khan in the box too.

Not in the best of shape, but less expensive than others that have been listed:

Bonus that it's open so you can actually look at the contents.

Until one looks inside and realizes they would never play the game...
