Inside TROIKA!

TROIKA! is the latest edition of the world's favourite science-fantasy roleplaying game by Daniel Sell. This edition contains the revised rules text, new artwork by RPG powerhouses Andrew Walter & Shuyi Zhang, and a new binding with an integrated GM screen, all while being 100% compatible with your current TROIKA! books.

The book starts with an introduction to roleplaying and the mindset of TROIKA!

Chapter 2 contains lightning-fast rules for creating your character, including 36 outlandish backgrounds for you to come from. 

Chapter 3 contains all the rules needed to play the game, neatly arranged in numbered paragraphs for easy reference. All are based on the classic 'Skill, Stamina & Luck' system of British adventure books with an innovative initiative system inspired by hex & counter wargames. And you only need 6-sided dice to play!

Chapter 4 is a bestiary containing a taste of the inhabitants of these strange worlds. These enemies are simple to use and offer depth via the innovative Mien system, whereby the GM can determine what an enemy is up to at any given moment.

Chapter 5 contains the now famous Blancmange & Thistle intro adventure, where the GM and their party are gently guided through an adventure full of prompts and a variety of situations so that when you finish you will feel confident in running your own campaign of TROIKA!.
