[Review] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (Lotfp 3pp); The mirthless laughter of the damned

[Adventure] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (2017) Evey Lockhart (In Search of Games) Levels 1 – 3 One thing I noticed about retroclones is that for all the pretensions of freshness and originality and new life brought to an old hobby, the plethora of retroclones has actually caused the libraries of these mostly setting-neutral … More [Review] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (Lotfp 3pp); The mirthless laughter of the damned

[Review] The Stealer of Children (LL); Back to form

[Adventure] The Stealer of Children (2013) Peter C. Spahn (Small Niche Games) Levels 1 I have to admit I looked toward The Stealer of Children with no small amount of trepidation. After Atarin’s Delve I didn’t know if Spahn still had it in him. Another great man, I told myself, another great man brought low by fame … More [Review] The Stealer of Children (LL); Back to form

[Review] On the Shoulders of Giants (Lotfp 3pp); Like a goofy fat kid trying to dance

[Campaign Setting] On the Shoulders of Giants (2018) Chance Philips (Appolyon Press) I’ve read a lot of campaign settings for fantasy games as well as a lot of fantasy novels and the one thing that strikes me is that in a medium where you can literally come up with anything you can imagine the bulk … More [Review] On the Shoulders of Giants (Lotfp 3pp); Like a goofy fat kid trying to dance

[Review] Fish Fuckers (Lotfp); McLovecraft

[Adventure] Fish Fuckers (2018) Kelvin Green (Lamentations of the Flame Princess) Level 4 I dig Lovecraft. Since I was 18 I read Lovecraft and it was this obscure horror/fantasy author that had inspired a whole genre of fantasy fiction and whose shadowy presence was behind many an awesome horror encounter. I still recall reading the … More [Review] Fish Fuckers (Lotfp); McLovecraft

[Review] Atarin’s Delve (LL); “…and then I found a ten euro bill.”

[Adventure] Atarin’s Delve (2011) Peter C Spahn (Small Niche Games) Levels 1 – 3 Atarin’s Delve is the fourth adventure for the Chronicles of Ahmerth setting and it is the weakest entry in the series so far. It’s not a bad adventure but its fairly inconsequential when compared with entries like Blood Moon Rising or the … More [Review] Atarin’s Delve (LL); “…and then I found a ten euro bill.”

[Review] Sleeping Place of the Feathered Swine (Lotfp 3pp); D1 meets garbage pail kids.

[Adventure] Sleeping Place of the Feathered Swine (2014) Logan Knight (www.lastgraspgrimoire.com) Levels 1 – 2 (est.) Sleeping Place of the Feathered Swine is perhaps the grossest little adventure I have ever seen. Its every page is filled with wet, cloying, reeking corruption that oozes, trickles, vomits forth or wafts. No great pilgrimage into cyclopean halls … More [Review] Sleeping Place of the Feathered Swine (Lotfp 3pp); D1 meets garbage pail kids.
