Read on for information about LotFP releases and news.
18.07.2016: LotFP Summer Update
The LotFP Bundle of Holding is live and runs until August 1! Starting at $12.95 for 6 PDFs, this is a great introduction to LotFP, both for its own sake and as a low-priced sampler of our offerings before our big convention appearances. If that sounds good to you, I'd jump on it sooner than later since the bonus package's price increases steadily through the Bundle's life. If you know someone that is curious about LotFP, let them know about the bundle.
And check out this writeup the Bundle people did about LotFP!
July 22 will be LotFP's 7th anniversary being officially in business. Lots done right, lots done wrong, but increased sales every year, so crossing fingers for getting more right than wrong in the next seven years!
July 29-31 Ropecon, Messukeskus, Helsinki
August 4-7 GenCon, Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis
Ropecon is the home field, for the first time in Helsinki's major convention center. The trade hall will be decently sized, and LotFP has booked a big 5x2 meter space in response, but otherwise this should be business as usual.
GenCon is the big one. For the first time we've got a trade stand there (booth 3002, right across from Kingdom Death awesomely enough) and this might be the only time to see the North American supporters in person. Come say hi, buy some stuff (we'll have the entire catalog plus some exclusive hoodies, a pile of the convention-exclusive tour shirts, and Maze of the Blue Medusa), and help spread the word!
We also have TraCon coming up September 3-4 in Tampere, another huge convention in October as LotFP has a stand at Essen Spiel (Hall 2, Booth 2-7108), and then we finish out the year December 3 at Dragonmeet in London.
As far as upcoming releases, We should be putting out two new major releases in the fall (hopefully September, but you know...) which will satisfy the 1000 New Published Pages pledge made at the beginning of the year. We've got some long-overdue crowdfunding rewards that were supposed to go to press in May, but between dealing with misprints and the heavy convention schedule, that didn't get done and I'm not leaving my wife with boxes everywhere while I'm in the US so that'll get done after GenCon. And just maybe before the end of the year, a third major release.
And then 2017 should be another crazy, productive year.
27.05.2016: Cursed Chateau and England Upturn'd out now! RPC This weekend!
The Cursed Chateau is a complete rewrite and expansion of the 2009 haunted house adventure by James Maliszewski, with graphic design and art by Jez Gordon! 80 page fancy hardcover!
England Upturn'd is a 128 page adventure by Barry Blatt that takes place during the English Civil War. Intrigue, insanity, and all the classic LotFP insanity is included in this one, as are alternate alignment rules (politics!) and a bunch of Cleric subclasses to fit right in to mid 1600s England.
Feel free to also add older titles to your order. :)
I'm going to be at RPC in Köln this weekend, UK Games Expo in Birmingham the following weekend, and NordCon in Hamburg the weekend after that, so please be aware that packing and shipping will be slower than usual since I'll be away more than I'm home the next couple weeks, but the first orders will be going out on Tuesday. I will have the new books at the conventions.

25.02.2016: New Releases!
Towers Two and World of the Lost have been released!
Towers Two was the adventure Dave Brockie was working on for LotFP when he died, and lifelong GWAR fan Jobe Bittman finished the thing off. It's probably the wildest thing LotFP has ever released, both art and text, and below the spectacle simmers an adventure just soaking in old-school goodness. Many choices to make, many places to explore, many factions to possibly join, all up to the player characters and the situations they get themselves into. It's a 112 page full color hardcover, and includes the unedited draft that Brockie had last turned in.
World of the Lost is Rafael Chandler's African Lost-World-With-A-Big-Twist sandbox setting with lots of setting tools and over two hundred described hex locations. 176 pages of gaming excellence between two hard covers, plus a pullout poster map.
Also released are reprints of the Rules & Magic book and Red & Pleasant Land, as well as the latest installment of the Green Devil Face zine.
