Carcosa
Weird Science-Fantasy Horror Setting. 288 page A5 size hardcover. Full description of what it is here, PDF preview of actual book contents here.

The PDF version (which comes free with a print order) is an absolute state-of-the-art example of PDF technology, with extensive links, layers, and bookmarking. Click around on the maps.

Isle of the Unknown
Island hexcrawl full of the strange and unusual, suitable for any fantasy campaign. 128 page A5 size hardcover. Full description of what it is here, PDF preview of actual book contents here.

The PDF version (which comes free with a print order) isn't quite state-of-the-art with the interior cross-linking as Carcosa, is fully bookmarked and layered.

Limited Edition Extras
Both Isle and Carcosa have optional add-ons. 250 of these are available for each book. Each book comes with an A4 sized map printed on canvas-like material and a double-sided full color A3 poster (both sides of the individual posters are shown in the pics here). Extras for each book are 5€ each. They are added by default, so toggle it to "No" if you don't want them. But you want them.

Discount Offer 1
Pembrooktonshire Gardening Society members get 2€ off the print versions of Carcosa and Isle of the Unknown as long as there are extras left for each book. When the extras run out, the discount is reduced to 1€ per book (the same discount Gardening Society members get on all print products in the LotFP store).

Discount Offer 2
Missed out on the Grindhouse Edition? If you buy at least 50€ worth of stuff from the LotFP store (say, the new Carcosa and Isle of the Unknown books), coupon code ULFIRE will get you a 12,50€ discount off the Grindhouse box.

Thanks Jim, I'm in :)

Is Geoffrey available to sign any copies?


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

The books were printed and are stored in Finland, and he's in the US, so I don't know how that could work...

Jim, gotta hand it to you.  Carcosa is one of the most gorgeous books I own.  It's also the first RPG book I've read from cover to cover all at once in years.  The fabric/canvas map is quite nice as well.

Almost had a heart attack when the box was delivered.  The postal service really did their best to destroy it.  Both Carcosa and Isle of the Unknown were unmarred.  Thanks for all the bubble wrap!  :D

Package received... with the box also jumped on, mangled, and beat beyond recognition  :?   I was fearing the worst but the wrapping kept the books nice and safe - Thank you for the packaging care!

I'll echo King, these are a couple beautiful books & accesories... I can't wait to get in to them.  Nice work Geoffrey & Jim :)

Can someone please exchange the Finland currency exchange?  How much does this cost in US dollars?

I keep seeing a blue Carcosa hardcover and a brown Carcosa hardcover for sale on Ebay.

Are these different versions of the Carcosa book?  Or, is it possible the Ebay vendors are showing the cover of the PDF by accident?    :?:

I bet that's it.

Print version looks like this: http://clawcarver.wordpress.com/2012/01 ... ok-fetish/

PDF version cover shown here: http://www.tenkarstavern.com/2012/01/re ... sions.html

The PDF version is different because foil stamping and premium cover materials (and the dust jacket which isn't shown above) aren't really applicable to a digital file.
