    *Kickstarter* The Fantasy Trip is back!

    The Fantasy Trip is an “old-school” RPG, with easy character design, realistic tactical combat, and an emphasis on story. It is unabashedly focused on dungeon crawls and arena battles. It’s a great introduction for your friends who are new to roleplaying, because it’s so easy to get started. The...

    Fantasy Trip Question

    I'm not famiiar with the Fantasy Trip at all, and most of the posts I've read seem like it's more a wargame (like you need the battlemat in order to play, etc.) The collector in me wants to back it, but the "get real" side of me is asking if I need a new system. Savage Worlds has been my goto...

    Steve Jackson has The Fantasy Trip again! [Kickstarted successfully!]

    Reported on sjgames.com, after about four decades Steve Jackson has gotten back the rights for the parts that he wrote for The Fantasy Trip! This is very early on but it looks like he is going to publish it again. I have Meele and Wizard around here somewhere and it would be great to have a...

    In which I screw around with/review some TFT solo modules

    I love The Fantasy Trip, but alas, I never get to play it. It's a touch awkward to run PBP-style, and I don't have a real-world group with that kind of focused interest. But I do have some solo modules, and the girls are gone this weekend so I've got free time. I might as well mess around and...

    [TFT] The Traveller Trip

    After a week of labouring on it, The Traveller Trip is ready for general consumption. Steve Jackson's The Fantasy Trip (Metagaming 1978-1980) was a contemporary to Marc Miller's Traveller role-playing game (GDW 1977) back in the late 1970's. Both games were coming to define and explore what a...

    [The Fantasy Trip] One-Shot Mini-Campaign

    I recently came into possession of a copy of Forest-Lords of Dihad, a mini-campaign-style module for The Fantasy Trip. It's a game I've always wanted to get to play or run and haven't had much success with. So, I'm going to take a shot at it. I haven't read the module yet, so...if it's awful, I...

    So help me out with The Fantasy Trip...

    I'm way late to the party, but basically it's a game that does more than Basic D&D and expects a grid and/or miniatures. It seems it does sword and sorcery very well, but other types namely Tolkien fantasy not so much. I'm not sure how races other than humans are dealt with. Monsters could end...

    [The Fantasy Trip] A call for help

    Hi everyone; I'm in the end-stages of a pretty major project to bring together, edit (mostly by re-arrangement into sensible sections) and compile into volumes the collective body of rules books, setting materials, adventures and solo adventures associated with Metagaming's The Fantasy Trip. The...

    The Fantasy Trip game...need details

    So my middle aged self wants to go back in time and keep all those games I threw away, sold, or simply lost. Obviously that isn't going to happen, so I turn to the used game market. Way, way back when I bought Melee and Wizard shortly after they came out. Some how they got lost and I want to...

    Some thoughts on: The Fantasy Trip

    About a month ago, I snagged a copy of Metagaming's Advanced Melee at a local Half Priced Books, and have been spending some time reading through it. Picking up Into the Labyrinth happened soon after, as I wanted to get some perspective on The Fantasy Trip's GM and campaign tools. TFT is really...

    IC A Fantasy Trip with The Wyzard

    It's been one month since the creature known as the Mad Stitcher died at your hands, and one could almost believe his death imparted a curse. A roaring downpour turned the town of Edible Fungus into marshland, and the road back washed out even as you traveled it. The carts were lost. The...

    [Closed Recruitment] OD&D Sequel: The Wyzard runs The Fantasy Trip

    This is a closed recruitment thread for a kind of sequel campaign to my infamous and long-running OD&D game. I'm going to be cherry-picking players who I think will be the best fit for the game I'm planning. If you have not received a PM or equivalent notification from me, do not post in this...

    I'd like to get The Fantasy Trip.

    Due to the fact that it's so long out of print and the IP holder has apparently disappeared, I have no moral compunctions about piracy in this specific case. However, I'd like a hard copy. The rules I found for Legends of the Ancient World were less than ten pages long and not very detailed...

    The Fantasy Trip - TFT - Melee / Wizard

    Anybody out there still playing this Vintage Interplay / Steve Jackson game? Or has it died a death like one of the hapless victims in the Death Test dungeons?

    Tell me about The Fantasy Trip

    So, been reading the webpage of the game in wikipedia, and it seems like a simple duel game. What makes it so good? What can you run with it? Is it suitable for quick one-shots or does it lend itself to a more lengthy style of play? Seems like a proto-gurps really :p Also there are two...

    [The Fantasy Trip IC/OOC] Ruins of Old Xan

    The city of Xan isn't what it used to be. Back when it was the capital of the Gallentyrian Empire, its broad avenues were punctuated by domes of granite and slender spires reaching skywards. Proud legionaries patrolled the streets, deferring only to nobles being carried in covered sedan chairs...
