If one were to take his advice and just buy a printed copy of the rule book, is that an option?
There were a few extra rulebooks but they've been snatched up already.
Nice review, lots of quotable stuff in there. Plus there's room for the line to grow. Since the strength of the game is that it's D&D done right, the calls for a rules-only standalone will continue. On the other hand, an example Weird setting is a good idea as well. I really like Weird New World, but it's a bit too specific in tone to fit into standard fantasy worlds, and doesn't suggest enough of the larger world (and it's higher level - not ideal for launching the new DM). But the WNW siren from it is one of my favorite monsters out there.
Not the most positive review, but at least he's not bleating about how the artwork is evil, will corrupt the youth, and bring back the shade of Patricia Pulling from beyond the Stygian shore.
That was sort of a meh kind of review. Interesting to say the least. I think pundit has a point though about using it for Warhammer fantasy though which is so nice of an idea I might be stealing it.
Joseph, that's in the comments. All the hand-wringers love finding LotFP reviews just so they can cry.
I read it before anyone had really commented. I think I'm glad I did.
Hi guys. I just bought the Grindhouse edition and, while I didn't write a full-blown review, I did write it up a bit on my game blog.http://digitalorc.blogspot.com/2011/06/lamentations-of-flame-princess-inquiry.html
RPG Pundit seems to have a habit of describing everything as completely awesome or completely terrible. If he kind of likes something he tends to describe it as having one part that's completely awesome and one part that's completely terrible.
