The Flame Princess Cometh Again!


Way back in August 2010 I obtained a copy of the Deluxe Edition box set of Lamentations of the Flame Princess. I loved that little box, the first version of the game to hit the streets, and all its contents.
 
But, it was a tumultuous time for me that year, with some significant financial hits thanks to the suffering economy. So, later that year I had to offer up the LotFP box set, among other RPG books, for sale. I wound up holding onto the box until early 2012, around which time I traded it in to Noble Knight Games and used the credit to get material for other game systems.
 
I look back with some regret when it comes to giving away the LotFP box set. However, I realized there is a solution to soothe that regret, in the form of the LotFP Rules & Magic hardcover! I just ordered that puppy and it is on its way to my hot little hands! Can't wait to see how the LotFP rules now stand. I know they haven't changed significantly since I had the Deluxe set, but I'm curious to see how the layout and artwork has been improved.
 
In all, I'm looking forward to a glorious reunion with the Flame Princess!
 
Now, Mr. Raggi, when will that Referee book come out in hardcover?!

End-of-Week Chalk (11/7/14)


A couple days ago, I posted about a Kickstarter for a Lone Wolf board game. Since then, I've been obsessing (how strange for me to do so ;-) about all things related to British fantasy gaming. So I thought I'd post a bit of art from Gary Chalk, who of course looms large beside Russ Nicholson in the pantheon of art gods from "across the pond."
 
Enjoy the illo above, and have a "hacking" good weekend!

Lone Wolf - The Board Game Kickstarter

 
I'm really excited about this Kickstarter! I didn't experience the Lone Wolf game books in their original heyday (I did get some Fighting Fantasy books, though), but I've gotten into them in recent years. I love Gary Chalk's artwork, and the world of Magnamund has that "British fantasy feel" to it that I really like.
 
If you like Lone Wolf, get in on this opportunity!
