Steve here with more MetaArcade news. This week it’s the release of the expanded Stop Thief! adventure. Originally this solo, written by Mike Stackpole, ran in the pages of Sorcerer’s Apprentice #7, the official T&T magazine. Then Stop Thief! laid dormant for many years until it appeared in the Adventurer’s Compendium that Flying Buffalo published in 2014.
OK enough history – what’s it about? It’s a bright sunny day in Gull and you realize you need to make some money. You see a help wanted poster and soon are hired to find out who keeps stealing things from the docks. It sounds simple enough, but you’re in Gull and there are always… complications. Pretty soon you are caught up in the seedy doings of the criminal underworld. Can you talk, bribe and fight your way through this den of thieves, or will you end up face down in the gutter with a knife in your back?
But wait – there’s more! There is something beyond this adventure. What that is and how you might get there is another story entirely. And can you get back to Gull? Try it and see…
Stop Thief! is now a full-sized adventure. In the spirit of how we expanded Golden Dust, Red Death and Hot Pursuit, we are raising the price from $1 to $4. So if you haven’t purchased it yet, you can add it to your collection for 40 gems ($4), but if you already own the adventure, you get all the new content for FREE! And as always, you can play all adventures including the new Stop Thief! for free by watching an ad.
Gull Map Update
Placing Stop Thief! on the Gull map is very easy, since in the introduction it states that a carriage drops you off at the City Square. Even though you go several other locations in this adventure, the City Square is where you start. You’ll also note that we have updated all the numbers on the map so that they now match the numbers on the Gull adventure covers. So, the first adventure is #9 and the latest one is #14. This should make it a little easier to math the location with the adventure.
THIS WEEK’S TRIVIA CONTEST
This week’s question is of course about our newest adventure, the expanded Stop Thief! We’ll start with an easy one…
The Question: In Stop Thief! who is the master rogue of Gull?
Post your answer in the comments section below or on the MetaArcade or Tunnels & Trolls Facebook Pages. I (Steve) will choose an answer at random from the correct answers, contact the winner and mail you a free signed copy of Grimtina’s Guard, plus a free signed comic. (If you already have Grimtina’s solo I’ll send you a different T&T item)
Note: you must live within the continental US so we can ship it to you. The deadline for posting your answer is Monday April 30th, 6 pm pacific time.
And for last week’s question: In Deathtrap Equalizer, you meet the deity of Love. What is that deity’s name?
The correct answer is “Sharana.” Our Trivia Contest winner is Mike Wynn, who was chosen at random from the correct answers. We’ll send Mike a signed copy of the Grimtina’s Guard solo! (or an alternate prize if they have that)
Thanks for playing and remember it’s easy to win. All you have to do is post the correct answer. You’d don’t have to be the first to post, you just have to post.
See you on the streets of Gull… and who knows where else?
