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

[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

Setting Spotlight: Giger’s Inferno

I had another Idea for a megadungeon-based campaign setting. The players are goverment/scientist/criminal operatives exploring a predatory alternate reality that lies parallel and is slowly invading our own. Whether they are a team of eggheads on a goverment budget exploring a natural fissure or a ragtag band of loveable entrepeneurs that have scrounged together enough … More Setting Spotlight: Giger’s Inferno

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

PrinceofNothingReviews: Fever-Dreaming Marlinko (LL); A city of wonder, whimsey and adventure.

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.

PrinceofNothingReviews: The Idea From Space (Lotfp); Factions, Merritt and Bodybuilding Gay Rape Sailors

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

PrinceofNothingReviews: Forgive Us (Lotfp); OSR WhF

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

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
