LotFP: I think I'm sold.

Sometimes, all I need is the right introduction:

Quite possibly the best disclaimer in the history of gaming.
With this, I was introduced to Lamentations of the Flame Princess, the newest entry into the OD&D clone sweepstakes and one that totally nails the vibe I want to play.

I'm not going to lie, I was not feeling the D&D Sandbox I had going on.  The reviews of LotFP piqued my interest and when I downloaded the PDFs of the set, I skimmed them.  Wow.  There is an enthusiasm, embodied in the disclaimer above, which has hot me deep.

I will do a deeper reading and more through review in the next few days.  Early indications point to THIS as the game that I will sandbox and WILL run when I move back to PA in November.

I've already started sandboxing.  I've got villains, neutrals, and heroes in mind already...

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives...

Oh yeah, THAT fiendish.

  1. Yeah... LotFP looks like one of the best clones yet, I must say. Ironically this is probably because of its innovations (encumbrance, specialist class, ascending AC, etc.), as opposed to its adherence to tradition.
