PrinceofNothingReviews: The Atheneum of Yearning (Lotfp 3PP); Had I the heavens embroidened cloths…

I am proud to present the second review request, a PWYW Lotfp 3rd party supplement. I give assurences to my other patron that the GREAT WORK is by no means neglected and continues on at a steady, if at times glacial, pace. The Atheneum of Yearning by Steven Oswald is a PWYW adventure for character … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Atheneum of Yearning (Lotfp 3PP); Had I the heavens embroidened cloths…

PrinceofNothingReviews: Monkey Buisness (OSR); WHAT IN THE NAME OF GARL GLITTERGOLD DID I JUST READ?

Full disclaimer: I was asked to review this strange pay-what-you want adventure nominally compatible with the OSR by fellow rpg-blogger and fellow Euro-trash Jens Durke aka the Disoriented Ranger (Swamp-German hello to you my Teutonic brother in arms!). I was naturally flattered and took to the task post-haste (or semi-post haste). Unfortunately it sucks in … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Monkey Buisness (OSR); WHAT IN THE NAME OF GARL GLITTERGOLD DID I JUST READ?

PrinceofNothingReviews: Thulian Echoes (Lotfp); He is back and he’s got a new Trick

We are back with yet another Installment of the modules from the twisted mind of Zacharrov Kowolski, that strange Canadian pervert that sets all our hearts ablaze. Thulian Echoes is an honest to god module and it verges somewhere between meta-narrative brilliance and the nonsensical. I shall attempt to explain. The central conceit of Thulian … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Thulian Echoes (Lotfp); He is back and he’s got a new Trick

PrinceofNothingReviews: The Pale Lady (Lotfp); Gingerbread v2: Electric Boogaloo

I’m starting to dig Kowolski’s stuff and I’m trying to find out why. Is it the irreverent humor scattered about the works? The thrill of playing mad professor DnD? Is it that brevity is the soul of wit? My inability to easily piece together a likely Appendix N? Is it the breezyness that nevertheless allows … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Pale Lady (Lotfp); Gingerbread v2: Electric Boogaloo

PrinceofNothingReviews: Lamentations of the Gingerbread Princess (Lotfp); What is this I can’t even

Lamentations of the Gingerbread Princess by the awesomely named Zzarchov Kowolski is a short, 18-page location based adventure for character levels 1-4 set in a horrific variation of the Land of Milk and Honey. It is really fucked up and weird but kind of interesting. The premise is as follows. King Connoley IV exiled all … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Lamentations of the Gingerbread Princess (Lotfp); What is this I can’t even

PrinceofNothingReviews: Castle Gargantua (Lotfp); Impressionist Gothic Negadungeon

After reading through multiple haunted house dungeons and ending with something of a an armpit-fart with the decidedly lukewarm The Cursed Chateau, I figured I might as well give this short lived theme a nice send-off and end with something big, bold and impressive. Castle Gargantua by crazy OSR veteran Kabuki Kaiser fits the bill … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Castle Gargantua (Lotfp); Impressionist Gothic Negadungeon

PrinceofNothingReviews: The Cursed Chateau (Lotfp); Drowning in the footsteps of Giants

I think I can safely say I have never been more prepared for a review in my life. I not only went through the time and effort to read through the two oldschool Dnd adventures the module is based on, I also, as part of my understanding Isle of the Unknown and the strange mind … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Cursed Chateau (Lotfp); Drowning in the footsteps of Giants

[Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: X2 – Castle Amber (D&D Basic); A trippy masterpiece of Weird-Tale Adventure

A while ago I reviewed The Stygian Garden of Abelia Prem, and described it as proper weird fucking fantasy. But it was, despite its trappings and appearance of weird, still rather of mundane. A journeyman’s weird fantasy adventure if you will. In preparation for the Cursed Chateau by OSR pope and loveable Kickstarter draftdodger J.Malesewski, I … More [Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: X2 – Castle Amber (D&D Basic); A trippy masterpiece of Weird-Tale Adventure

PrinceofNothingReviews: Dungeon of the Unknown (Lotfp); Outlines & Hen-scratchings of greatness

Dungeon of the Unknown is Geoffry Mckinney’s follow up on his troublesome and strange Isle of the Unknown weird/mythological sandbox. The glades and pines of a bizarre, faded Atlantis are traded in for a minoan labyrinth, inhabited by all manner of strange, often nonsensical inhabitants. One should think the tighter focus of a Dungeon over … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Dungeon of the Unknown (Lotfp); Outlines & Hen-scratchings of greatness

PrinceofNothingReviews: Isle of the Unknown (Lotfp); Creative but frustrating

I have an odd attitude towards the works of Geoffry Mckinney. I think they are creative and that there is vision behind them but they tend to be implemented in such a fashion that this vision is difficult to realize in actual play. Carcosa had a great premise and fantastic imagery behind it but its … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Isle of the Unknown (Lotfp); Creative but frustrating
