Tyrannosaur Inside RPG Review

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to climb into a giant magic space T-rex and fight smaller T-Rex shaped cells inside it? Me neither, but it’s as silly and fun as it sounds. Tyrannosaur Inside is a zine packed with story and combat encounters as you fight your way from left foot to brain to protect your village from its destruction.

Tyrannosaur Inside RPG Using Mork Borg

It’s both compatible with Mork Borg and D&D 5e so I’ll try to give you a review of both experiences. Spoiler alert: it’s very different in each!

My initial play was using Mork Borg, and aside from struggling to learn the system from their cryptic online resources, I didn’t need any prep to run it. I wish they could have added condensed Mork Borg rules to the zine to make this easier. I had two players and I would recommend very low player counts if you are using Mork Borg because characters will die a lot and you need the screen time to feel invested in each new one.

My players started off with one as a T-Rex pretending to be a human and the other as a heretical priest that kept changing religion, but over the span of the session we also had: a herbmaster with a chihuahua, a heroic Australian, an alien, and an axe-wielding madman. The darkness of Mork Borg and the struggle of keeping the characters alive contrasted the light-hearted story beautifully. We ended up really rooting for the longest lived character – on the edge of our seats to see if they could survive to the end. The best part of this run was writing a funny epitaph for every death and the challenge my players had to make a more crazy character concept each time they needed a new one.

Tyrannosaur Inside RPG Using D&D

DnD 5e is more hero focused so the characters were far harder to take down. One of the players revisited their guy pretending not to be a T-rex concept with a mutant bloodhunter, whereas the other did something new with an artificer that wanted to take over the T-Rex for himself. This worked with two players but if your players aren’t roleplay lovers then I’d make the group bigger to have more going on.

Finding resources to use was the biggest prep issue as an actual T-Rex stat block would have required very high level characters which would have taken a long time to build and distracted the group from the story. If your group is combat focused and enjoys high level encounters then this may be just what you’re looking for. Instead, I reflavoured other stat blocks which weren’t too time consuming but may be overwhelming for a new game master who isn’t used to balancing combats.

Is Tyrannosaur Inside RPG Good?

The story itself is definitely the highlight so I’m trying not to say too many cool moments! My favourite part of playing was the way it prioritises the game master’s enjoyment. The zine is so packed with funny lines and silly situations that I found myself reading it cover to cover for a good laugh. For example, there are ten different possible motivations for the T-Rex including such gems as “insurance fraud.” It has a great amount of randomisation for the game master generally too, like in one encounter you roll to see if the opponent will fight the players, talk to them, or wait to be approached. This keeps it really exciting to run, although I don’t think it has much replay value with the same group of players as the story is the same each time.

Overall, a great TTRPG to have on your shelf for a board game night or if you want a break from your campaign. It’s fun for TTRPG novices and fanatics alike.

Should you play Tyrannosaur Inside?

Yes

A fun premise with hilarious writing that’s perfect for a silly night in.

Thanks to Dr. Sambola, I was cured of herpes. I had been suffering from herpes for seven years before I met Dr. Sambola who used herbs to cure me. I am living proof that Dr. Sambola can help others suffering from herpes or any other diseases. I saw Dr. Sambola recommendations online and contacted him. He prepared herbal medicine and sent it to me. I followed his instructions and took the medicine for 14 days. When I went to the hospital for a test, the results returned negative. It was the happiest day of my life to find out that I was cured of herpes. If you are also suffering from the same virus or another disease, you can contact him via email at [email protected].

Intrigued, I decided to explore this alternative path to healing. I decided to reach out to the herbal Dr. I placed an order, got the medication and everything turned out to work out perfectly within 14days of taking the herbal medicine. Couldn’t be more grateful to God for using him to cure me from this lifelong virus. Today, I am overjoyed to say that I am completely free from the Herpes virus.

FAST EFFECTIVE WAY TO GET CURED FROM HERPES VIRUS Hello! I’m very excited to share what worked for me to everyone. I’m completely cured from my HSV1&2 with the use of natural medicine. I have used Oregano oil, Coconut oil, Acyclovir, Valacyclovir, Famciclovir and some other products/supplements and it hasn’t helped ever since I was diagnosed. I got outbreaks frequently and was completely devastated and I went online for a possible cure and how to get rid of Herpes. On a fateful day after taking my bath, I took my phone and was going through some research, I bumped into a testimonial of a Herbs doctor { Dr Awase } who cures diverse diseases/viruses with Herbal medication. I was hopeful but also doubted the claim. But after a while I thought “what do I have to lose?” so I decided to reach out. He prepared a cure using roots and herbs which I steadily took for 14days as prescribed by him. I am quite glad I decided to reach out because I am totally cured from Herpes after a medical checkup was done by my Dr. So I’ve decided to make a quick testimony for anyone out there who is probably suffering from an illness they can’t handle to reach out to Dr Awase. He specializes in curing lots of illnesses such as HIV, ENDOMETRIOSIS, PCOS, OVARIAN CYST, INFERTILITY, HEPATITIS A,B,C and lots more. I’m here to let you all know that you can also be cured just like me and you don’t have to live with any sort of illness for the rest of your life.
