16.06.2014: "About" Page Updated!
I just hit Nordcon this past weekend, and Free RPG Day is next weekend, so there might be a few new people curious about LotFP. So I've updated the About page (for the first time in what, five years?) with all the relevant info that someone unfamiliar with LotFP needs to know.
17.03.2014: God that Crawls Walkthrough
Jason Thompson did a walkthrough cartoon for The God that Crawls. You can see it here.
09.03.2014: Scenic Dunnsmouth and Forgive Us are out now!
Two new adventures out this past week:
Scenic Dunnsmouth by Zzarchov Kowolski: A journey into the weird backwater village of Dunnsmouth, suffering from various infestations of evil. Features a cool adventure customization procedure (including a full example so there's a ready-to-run version), and laid out so you can copy/print out only those sections of the adventure that are in play at the time. 112 pages, 2-color interior print, with layout and all art by Jez Gordon.
My personal opinion: This is a new Major Work to be put alongside Vornheim and Carcosa in terms of interesting stuff and new ways to put things together. Zzarchov really killed it with this one.
Forgive Us, written and illustrated by Kelvin Green: Urban horror! Criminal activity goes wrong when the wrong thing is stolen and ancient evil is released. The PCs show up just when the situation might/might not get out of hand...
My personal opinion: Fuckin' cool. Kelvin had his idea, designed the book, then fit the pieces together. The result is just like the cover: Simple yet striking.
They'll also be showing up on game store shelves in a couple months.
Also, LotFP is once again participating in Free RPG Day. If you missed the recent crowdfunding effort, then participating game stores will be the only way to get a copy. Info here!
02.03.2014: New Books Coming This Week!
We've got two new books coming out this week (Tuesday afternoon Finnish time if all goes as planned with the delivery) in print and PDF.
One is Kelvin Green's Forgive Us, formerly known as Horror Among Thieves. It contains three adventures. In Green's words: "The main adventure is more or less The Thing slapped into a thieves' guild in a populous 17th Century city. The first backup is a ghost story of sorts and the second is a short mystery intended for use in kicking off a longer campaign." It'll be a 48 page book.
The other is Zzarchov Kowolski's Scenic Dunnsmouth, which involves a village in a swamp. Exactly what's going on in the village is hard to say (or promote), as the adventure features a pretty nifty random generation system so that the adventure is different every time it is played. There is a step-by-step example sequence in the book though, and the end result is one pregenerated example of the adventure all ready to go. 112 pages, with the interior in a wicked two-color format that really brings out the sinister vibe of Jez Gordon's art.
So two long-delayed projects will finally be available. Now to get to the rest of the long-delayed projects...
