Adventurer! This Troika Bundle presents the Troika! tabletop fantasy roleplaying game from Melsonian Arts Council. You are a wizard, a warrior, or maybe a macrame owl, dimension-hopping in your golden barge among the crystal spheres strung like pearls across the hump-backed sky. The simple Troika! rules, inspired by the 1980s Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, let beginners and jaded roleplayers alike go wild in crazed cross-planar pursuits. Whether you're pruning a Floral God, infiltrating the Palace of Tigers, or helping His Moist Magnificence, the slug monarch King Juniper Jupiter Lexx-Hafwall IV, Troika! lets you trip the light fantastic, or maybe just trip out, in visionary adventures fueled by hallucinatory creativity.

For just US$14.95 you get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $59.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Troika! Numinous Edition (plus the Troika Initiative Cards); the Axes & Orcs Compendium of additional character backgrounds; and the descriptively titled adventure So You've Been Thrown Down a Well.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $27.17, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $56, including the desert pointcrawl campaign Acid Death Fantasy; the adventures Fronds of Benevolence and House of the Red Doors; and the science-fantasy campaign setting Terror of the Stratosfiend.
