Read on for information about LotFP releases and news.
23.12.2015: End of Year Sale!
We need to make room for the new stuff that should be going to press in early 2016, so it's SALE TIME! Use coupon code YEAREND through 11:59pm Finnish time on December 29 to get 50% off these titles at the LotFP Store:
The God that Crawls
The Idea from Space
Isle of the Unknown
The Monolith from beyond Space and Time
Tower of the Stargazer
This is also your last chance to take advantage of 2015 shipping rates because of course the post office is raising them again as of January 1 (I'll be updating the store's rates on the 30th since anything ordered from then will ship in the new year)... even though fuel costs are dropping and Finland's official inflation rate is negative. Fuckers.
So fill out your collection with these discounted items, don't forget to browse through the regular-price items, and get a T-shirt or two, and we'll all be set for next year and all the fun new stuff that will (finally) bring.
LotFP will be at Dragonmeet in London on Saturday the 5th. To keep bookkeeping and stock as simple as possible during this time, the webstore will be closed until Sunday afternoon.
02.11.2015: New Shirts and Reprints Now Available!
Now on sale at the LotFP Store!
Astral Fear T-Shirt (Classic Fit sizes S-XXXL, Ladies' fit sizes S-XL in both crew and v-neck styles)
Spiked T-Shirt (Classic Fit sizes S-XXXL, Ladies' fit sizes S-XL in both crew and v-neck styles)
Death Love Doom Reprint
The Magnificent Joop van Ooms Reprint
Tales of the Scarecrow Reprint
plus we've found another couple boxes of A Red & Pleasant Land in our storage space!
Carcosa reprint limited to 500* copies, Ooms and DLD and Scarecrow to 250 each, and we have 50 RPLs left.
If you think it's more convenient to order shirts from the US, Noble Knight has a selection of the new shirts and they still have some of the first LotFP of Carcosa left (less than 50 of those left in the distribution chain worldwide).
And they haven't made an announcement so I can't swear by this, but the Finnish post office has raised postage rates every single year that LotFP has been in business, so this just might be your last chance to add in back catalog LotFP releases (or the last of our Flame Princess and Alice shirts!) and get the current postage rates.
* all amounts are subject to the printers delivering a bit more or less than ordered.
This will be it for LotFP for the year. This has been a slow year production-wise, but we've certainly been busy getting new stuff together. At least one new book will (knock wood) go to press at the very start of next year, but more on that as it actually happens...
26.08.2015: Vornheim Available in Print Again!
The reprint of Vornheim: The Complete City Kit by Zak S (A Red & Pleasant Land) is now on sale at the LotFP Webstore!
Spread the word!
Vast is Vornheim, the Grey Maze...
Give somebody a floorplan and they’ll GM for a day – show them how to make 30 floorplans in 30 seconds and they’ll GM forever.”
Need to know how to get from here to there even if neither here nor there are listed on a map? Even if there is no map? Need a random encounter? Need instant stats for that random encounter? Need to know why there was a random encounter? This book was designed to help you make a city happen now.
In addition to details on Vornheim, adventure locations, and player commentary from the I Hit It With My Axe girls, every single surface below this jacket – including the back of the jacket, the book covers underneath, and the inside covers – has been crammed full of tools to help you build and run a city no matter what edition game you play.
◊ Winner: Indiecade 2012 Technology Award

◊ Winner: Diehard Gamefan 2011 Best Campaign Setting Award
◊ Winner: Old School Ruckus Award
◊ Nominee: 2012 Diana Jones Award

This is pretty much just a straight reprint, typos hopefully all corrected and not too many new ones introduced. No new content or other flash.
03.08.2015: LotFP Wins Big at the ENnies!
LotFP's A Red & Pleasant Land won awards in every category it was nominated at the Gen Con EN World RPG Awards over the weekend.
GOLD for Best Writing
(We beat out the writing for Pelgrane's Ken Writes About Stuff Vol. 2, Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons & Dragons Players Handbook, Monte Cook Games' The Strange, and Evil Hat Productions' Designers & Dragons: A History of the Roleplaying Game Industry.)
GOLD for Best Setting
(We beat out settings from Monte Cook Games' The Strange, Moon Design Publications' Guide to Glorantha, Modiphius Entertainment's MUTANT: Year Zero, and Pelgrane's Dreamhounds of Paris.)
SILVER for Best Product
(Wizards of the Coast's D&D Players Handbook won Gold, but we beat out Modiphius Entertainment's MUTANT: Year Zero – The Roleplaying Game and Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game (Transhuman Science-Fiction Adventure in the Second Age of Space), Monte Cook Games' The Strange, Chaosium's Horror on the Orient Express, Moon Design Publications' The Guide to Glorantha, Privateer Press' Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Core Rules Hardcover, Evil Hat Productions' Designers & Dragons: A History of the Roleplaying Game Industry, and Margaret Weis Productions' Firefly Roleplaying Game.)
SILVER for Best Adventure
(Chaosium's Horror on the Orient Express won Gold, but we beat out Wizards of the Coast's Hoard of the Dragon Queen, Pinnacle Entertainment Group's East Texas University: Degrees of Horror, and Fabled Environments' Cake Walk.)
I mention who we beat (and who beat us) because these awards are voted on by fans from a selection made by judges based on every release submitted to them over the eligible period.
In fan voting, we beat out the biggest names in gaming, and that's huge for me, Zak, Jez, and everyone in the LotFP stable who stands to benefit from the extra exposure and credibility these awards bring. Thank you all!
Cross your fingers, because next stop will be the Origins Award.
