This pdf bundle is the best introduction to Tunnels and Trolls I can think of. It comes with the generic mini-rules section that I have seen so many times before at the end of the bundle. However it goes into much more detail on what combat is and what saving rolls are and the different ways to use them along with examples. I printed this section out and gave it to my wife who has been trying to understand my love for T&T (she comes from that other game and so struggles with the differences) This time she seemed to grasp the rules in a way that skimming the dT&T book and talking to me did not. The other thing I printed out from the bundle was all of the many one page information sheets in the book. A truly great resource for new players and old Trolls alike! The great character sheets will see many of printing as well. I even printed out the world map and stuck it in my binder. it's nice to have a copy without needed to flip through the massive dT&T book.
Oh wait, that's not all! It also includes four pre-rolled characters and Two Adventures to use them in!
Journey to Buffalo Island is the first adventure and it is a solo. It starts off with a shipwreck and gets worse from there! I tried it and had a blast until I foolishly pressed my luck to far and died to goblins!
The Tomb of Kharis is a GM adventure. I skimmed over it and it looked more than a simple dungeon crawl. The Town of Skeins End is nicely mapped out and I can't wait till some of my players visit the local bar "The Blue Narwhale".
With full fledged NPC write ups and Several short How to run a adventure and tips on creating you own adventure(or Expand this one) I think this is the best yet introduction to a rpg that I have seen.
My only real complaint is that I wasn't given the option of getting it in paperback and have to make due with pdf. At just under $6 though I can't complain!
