To mark the splendid occasion of my hale and entirely sane return to the Nether Realms, I have taken a break from reviewing Lotfp products to instead take a look at the excellent Hill Cantons Fever-Dreaming Marlinko citybook by eccentric texan-borne OSR genius Chrik Kutalik. Fever-Dreaming Marlinko is a supplement detailing the town of Marlinko, … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Fever-Dreaming Marlinko (LL); A city of wonder, whimsey and adventure.
I am back. Toronto is a vast urban desertscape, a nightmarish chimera consisting of equal parts The Village, World of Darkness New York and Disney’s It’s a Small World. Upon my pilgrimage along its endless boulevards of pet shops, tattoo parlours and small buisnesses with THIS STORE SOLD CIGARETTES TO MINORS signs decorating their front … More PrinceofNothingInterviews: 10 hard-hitting questions for Bryce Lynch
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.
