We are happy and proud to release the second part of Necropolis of Vaarh – an original adventure developed within the MetaArcade Creators Pilot Program. Created by Stefan Jones, author of the Tunnels & Trolls solo #24, Dark Temple, it is intended for the beginning characters.
As we said in last week’s dev blog, this year marks the 40th anniversary of a classic Tunnels & Trolls solo adventure, City of Terrors. Besides being the grandest solo adventure of its time, it also incorporated the art with the text in breakthrough ways: every page included beautiful and gritty illustrations by Liz Danforth and Rob Carver. To celebrate, we got in touch with the reclusive Rob Carver for his unique perspective on the development and growth of T&T and his memories about working on City of Terrors.
Today is a special day for MetaArcade as we get to release our remastering of one of Tunnels & Trolls’ most iconic and beloved adventures, City of Terrors. It is only fitting that we get to do it on the verge of its 40th anniversary.

Like Naked Doom and The Ascendant, it is available to all players for free!
Back in March, we announced the Pilot Program for the MetaArcade Adventure Creator. At first, we did not know what level of interest to expect, but the response from prospective authors has been overwhelming!

Then Stop Thief! laid dormant for many years until it appeared in the Adventurer’s Compendium that Flying Buffalo published in 2014.
This week, it’s the release of Deathtrap Equalizer, one of the first classic T&T solo adventures. Most adventures take place underground, in a bustling city, or the wilderness. This adventure is more like a closed time loop in a pocket universe. You’ll be teleported from one encounter to the next and try to see how many encounters you can go to before you are defeated. When Deathtrap was first released, this was a revolutionary way to have an RPG adventure, so you are walking in the footsteps of gaming history...
