What The Critics Say
"Chaosium’s Trollpak for RuneQuest was one of the first tabletop roleplaying supplements to describe a single race in detail… both atmospheric and useful, Trollpak sets a standard that is hard to beat even now, and anyone planning a single-race roleplaying supplement would be well advised to study it. There is much here worth plundering."
— Graeme Davis, My Top 5 RPG Monster Books.
"More than anything, Trollpak emphasizes that trolls can be just as varied as human in both action and moral complexity and have an important role in the broader society of Glorantha – they aren’t mere monsters or fodder for adventurer swords... Really an outstanding piece of work from Greg Stafford and Sandy Petersen. A big step, I think, in the evolution of RPGs from meat grinder dungeon crawls to a more thoughtful, narrative driven experience."
— Vintage RPG, Trollpak Review.
"D&D players may have issues with playing races as evil or not, but RuneQuest had it figured out in 1982. These trolls are NOT one-dimensional collections of hit points and potential XP and treasure... There is just so much to love about this product. It is jammed packed full of ideas."
— The Other Side, Troll Week, Trollpak Review.

Flashback to 1990 or so. Brilliant, it completes my set of classic RQ. The local printing in uk is good quality. Very happy
