My last review before a short vacation to Canada. I figured I’d end with something traditional and wholesome and familiar. The Idea from Space is a 34 page Lotfp adventure for character levels 1-3 that takes place on an Island near the southern tip of South America. It is reminiscent of the writing of Abraham … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Idea From Space (Lotfp); Factions, Merritt and Bodybuilding Gay Rape Sailors
The second stand-out Avalanche 64 page campaign setting I’ve come across, Endless Sands takes place in a fantasy world based on Arabian legend and manages to feel new despite coming out far after Al-Quadim. It exemplifies a truth about Campaign settings I have realised in my long journey through the elfgame archives: A good campaign … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Endless Sands (d20 3pp); Al-Quadim with a whiff of Dark Sun
Forgive Us marks the last of a sort of imaginairy trilogy of Lotfp adventures that attempt a serious foray into historical fantasy and are not situated on an Island and were not written by James Raggi. This installment is by far the least embedded in history and is therefore the easiest to convert to any … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Forgive Us (Lotfp); OSR WhF

In this coming time of change, fire and blood, when mettle will be tested and where the blueprints of the coming decades are laid out, it is comforting to know that there are still things that can pleasantly suprise a man. Case in point: I, Morded by Avalanche games is the first 64 page campaign … More PrinceofNothingReviews: I, Mordred (d20 3pp); An Avalanche Campaign Setting that does not suck?!?
Hah! The reviewing blitzkrieg continues unabated. Ever onward. England Upturned is an English Civil War sandbox taking place in 1642, after the Thirty Years War. Tensions are mounting but the shit has not yet hit the fan. The author is a secretive individual by the name of Barry Blatt, whom I suspect is something of … More PrinceofNothingReviews: England Upturned (Lotfp); Ambitious historical weird fantasy
A single, small cut by Michael Curtis made me very happy. It gave me hope. After wading through the entire Raggi section of the Lotfp catalogue one gets tired, as even the good adventures exert a heavy toll on one’s sanity and spirit. Barely kept cognizant on a diet of Avalanche Press supplements, Drizz’t Do’urden … More PrinceofNothingReviews: A single, small cut (Lotfp); Terre des Hommes, Ch. III: L’Avion, p. 60.
Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children is Raggi’s most recent adventure and it therefore follows that it is the wackiest, given Loftp’s shift from Grim-dickish traditional Dnd with Weird Elements to Grimly Serious 17th century Weird-Horror to Silly wackiness and absurdity against a backdrop of Grimly Serious 17th century weird-horror. Enter Doom-Cave of the Crystal Children, … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children (Lotfp); Peak Raggi
Finally, something that is an unqualified, unasterisked success that won’t gross out the kids. We return once again to that most quixotic of all OSR Publishers, Lamentations of the Flame Princess. James Raggi strikes again with an all new all powerful 8 page mini-adventure perfectly suited to rock your PC’s socks off. Like most of … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Tales of the Scarecrow (Lotfp); Short but sweet.
Oh James Raggi. You had everyone going there for a second. The God that Crawls was nice, had some good ideas and was playable. Better then Any Man was a magnificently executed historical weird adventure. You were showing signs of improvement. Everyone was holding their breath. It was only a matter of time before your … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Fuck for Satan (Lotfp); A literal farce
