How to Order

Send either 3,81€ or 1,50€ via Paypal to lotfpeurope@lotfp.com. Remember this is euros, not dollars! The order will be manually processed and your pdf copy emailed to you when I see the order (the physical copy the next business day), which may or may not be immediately, because sometimes I do manage to have a life. So anywhere from "within 5 seconds because Jim is looking at internet porn so he sees your order immediately," to "in 24 hours because Jim's spending the night elsewhere and therefore doesn't need porn tonight." Important: If you want the pdf to be emailed to an address different than the email address you are sending the Paypal payment from, you need to include a note with the payment. I'm a genius, not a psychic.

(Insect Shrine of Goblin Hill pre-orderers will get a free print copy...)

* Who are we kidding? THIS... IS... OLD SCHOOL!, so the plot is flimsy and its application flimsier, and nobody running this adventure is going to use it as written anyway...
** OK, a couple of 1977 things may have slipped in. Sue me.
*** dungeon map is included!
**** like much of the material crapped out in the old school renaissance!
***** If enough publicity... er, controversy is generated, then LotFP: RPG will release Fantasy Tiddlywinking Vietnam: The Upholstered Edition on November 31, 2012

  1. It's a funny and deadly module. Think of an R-rated version of Gary's EX modules. Except this is a dungeon.

  2. With the euro where it is, under $5 is a great price for a print copy of anything. Jim, stop looking at porn and send me FFV!

  4. Very funny Jim. I think I caught most of the jokes. Maybe 80%.

  5. OK, it's a 50% success then! Now, for the other 50%, did you find any little idea sparks for your game in those pages? (I do suppose it's a bit much to expect someone to run the adventure as written... ;))

    Anyway, everyone who ordered should have gotten their pdf, and all print copies ordered as of this morning are in the mail.

  6. I just got the print copy (I think I was the first sale), and it's pretty much what you'd expect from a module called Fantasy Fucking Vietnam. As a trap filled funhouse, I think it's just a little too self-referential for the game community to be strictly useful but I enjoyed a lot of the material anyway. I could see it working out in a sort of "killer breakfast" fashion as a con game.

  7. >>I think it's just a little too self-referential for the game community to be strictly useful

    Considering that I'm only selling it off my blog, I don't think this will be too much a problem.

    And I tried to make sure that the references really weren't important to actually doing anything within the dungeon (did I succeed?). That way, the referee who orders it gets a chuckle, but his players that don't give a crap about reading all this stuff on the internet don't need to understand it. They'll just think all these people are friggin WEIRD!
