PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (lotfp) Pt. III; Barrier Peaks Redux

Some time needs to be spent mentioning the overly elaborate and almost Byzantine random encounter tables for both inside and outside. It is regretable that most of them are just creatures, with no other details added, but to Chandler’s credit, a FUCKING RANDOM TABLE is added so you can generate complex encounters between multiple parties … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (lotfp) Pt.

PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt. II; Sandbox-ah-la-roi

Amid a cluster of fifty-foot sapele trees with bright yellow petals, there is a contamination. Anyone moving through this area will experience a bright flash of light, followed by a moment of disorientation. All characters must save versus Magic. Failure means that there is a moment of darkness, and when the characters open their eyes … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt. II; Sandbox-ah-la-roi

PrinceofNothingReviews: England Upturned (Lotfp); Ambitious historical weird fantasy

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
