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

[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
