Lamentations (and other things) for Sale!

Ok, not to broadcast a sob story, but...I've come across some difficult financial times of late, with salary reductions, reduced hours, and other specters of the current economic state of the country (the world?) afflicting me. That being said, as painful as it may be, I find myself in need of unloading some gaming materials.

The most painful of these is the need to sell my brand spankin' new, barely used copy of the Lamentations of the Flame Princess box set, which I just acquired a few scant monts ago. It's in pristine condition, of course, and I'm looking to sell it for $45 (shipping will be a bit extra)...that's $20 less than what I paid for it. Please let me know if you are interested. You can email me at to discuss this or any other item I have for sale.

(Some of you might be asking how I will continue to run my current, LotFP-based campaign. Well, I'm going to resort to using the free PDFs of the Rules and Magic books that James Raggi has provided.)

While my copy of LotFP is my current crown jewel for sale, I have a list of other materials that are also for sale. Here's the list (with prices):

  • Dungeoneer: Tomb of the Lich Lord card game (with bonus extra cards) = $10
  • D&D 3.5 Module: The Standing Stone = $5
  • Fading Suns sci-fi RPG = $5
  • In Nomine RPG = $5
  • Continuum time-travel RPG = $5
  • Rifts World Book 11: Coalition War Campaign = $7
  • Rifts World Book 12: Psyscape = $7
  • Rifts World Book 13: Lone Star = $7

Musings on Entering my 35th Year...

Well met once again, all! This is your friendly neighborhood Drance, checking in with some thoughts. I turned 35 yesterday, and it staggered me to think that I started gaming more than 20 years ago! Now, granted, as anyone who's read my testimonial on this blog knows, many of the years between my first gaming experiences and my current life were spent NOT gaming (at least not table-top roleplaying). But still, I never totally forgot about roleplaying, and always had it on my mind somewhere, and always believed that someday I would return to realm fantasic and deadly!

All in all, it's been great getting back into table-top (and getting into play-by-chat) roleplaying! Thanks to all of you in the gaming blogosphere that I've come to know in the past year, for being there to share your thoughts and experiences! It's been a great ride so far!

Autumn is my favorite time of year, and October is my favorite month (natch!) I've been doing my usual October rituals, like reading my H.P. Lovecraft and other horror literature, watching horror flicks of varying caliber (heartily recommend Drag Me to Hell and Quarantine, but avoid Pulse...bleh!)

But, as usual, I digress...

I hope to post the recap of Legendary Domains Sesson 3 soon enough (spoiler: it was sort of a short session, not as much happened this time around).

Stay tuned, dudes and dudettes!

As always, happy gaming!

Session 2 Recap/Session 3 This Weekend!

Hello all! This is your pal Drance, the guy who doesn't post very often anymore! As I've said before, all my creative energies (and limited free time) are going to the maintenance of my fledgeling Legendary Domains campaign.

That said, we did have a second session about two weeks ago, and we're slated for session three tomorrow night! So far, things have been pretty good!

For those who are interested, you can read the recap of session two on Obsidian Portal. As a side note, I was totally messed up in my interpretation/execution/understanding of the Lamentations of the Flame Princess encumbrance rules. I won't go into details, but suffice to say one of my players called me out on it (nicely), and showed me the error of my ways. He and I also discussed possible house rules on the subject.

Anyway, wish me luck for the next session, and let me know if anyone at all is reading/listening!

As always, happy gaming!
