Special Delivery

We wrapped up our second Lamentations of the Flame Princess adventure last night; second and perhaps last, as while it's close to being the perfect version of Dungeons & Dragons for me, I know that not everyone in the group is anywhere near as keen.

Anyway, I've scanned and cleaned up my scenario notes from the game, and they can be downloaded as a sort-of-a-One-Page-Dungeon here. For those interested in the tension between preparation and play, it took about a couple of hours to put together and gave us two four-hour sessions of play, although there was a fair bit of faffing about in the first session. I've dropped most of the LotFP-specific statistics, so it should be easy enough to import to your game system of choice.

Thanks to the Queen -- not of the Demonweb Pits -- giving everyone a couple of extra days off work, we should be meeting again tomorrow, this time to either play a bit of RuneQuest -- I haven't played since a total party kill about fifteen years ago -- or perhaps the D&D5 playtest, if I can get my head around the adventure in time.

  1. Dang, sorry to hear the players in your group aren't thrilled with LotFP. I would be! Can you elaborate as to what exactly turns them off about the system? Seems quite elegant to me.

    Thanks also for the cool-looking adventure. Horked!

    1. What they've said is that they're not fond of the lack of character options available after coming from stuff like Pathfinder; this is a strength for me as GM, since it makes the game less complicated, but I do understand the point.

      The slow rate of advancement has also been mentioned, but I'm not sure if that was a gripe or just a general comment highlighting a difference.

    2. A couple of my players used to more recent editions have also commented/complained about the slow advancement rate in Labyrinth Lord. It is hard for me to identify with, since for me the true fun is in the role-playing, not the power gaming, but I do empathize with folks who were brought up on the more recent editions so expect more player options and power.

    3. You can read a review from one of my players here; Stuart was present for the first two sessions, but missed yesterday's.

  2. The Mediafire link doesn't seem to be serviceable...

    1. It's working for me. Perhaps give it another try?
