Hi everyone,

I stumbled across this product line on Dragonsfoot... I don't believe it has been posted here (if it has, I missed it!)...  just wanted to mention it in case it's of interest to my Acaeum friends.

Geoffrey Mckinney (of Carcosa & Isle of the Unknown fame) is publishing a line of adventures called Psychadelic Fantasies:

Module 1: Beneath the Ruins by Alex Fotinakes
Module 2: Within the Radiant Dome by Gavin Norman
Module 3: Fungus that came to Blackeswell by Yves Geens

I just ordered all three ($5 each includes shipping), because: 1) the price was right 2) I liked Geoff's work with Lamentations of the Flame Princess 3) despite being basically POD, it's 100% on target as 'Small Press' product,  4) the no-nonsense, no frills layout contrast perfectly with the out-there nature of the work.  Ah, irony :)

Here's the link to Geoffrey's blog for pics & more info.  I'll follow up with a review once the material is in hand.

Psychedelic Fantasies: August 2012

(just reading my post again, maybe this should have gone in Classifieds.  Oh well, apologies in advance if that put anyone off :) ).


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

And no art, which means the price per per word is great value :)  but I know what you mean... some adventures you have really got to *want*

I'm pretty sure it's print-on-demand.  So yes, plenty left :)

I'm trying to work out a deal with Geoffrey that would have me selling them at NTRPG con...wouldn't make any money on them, just think they are a cool, fun item with a really cheap price point.  Hopefully I'll have copies of all three at the con next week!

Cool and fun they are!

Not a lot of hack, slash, and loot, but full of setting, descriptions, and adventure :)

Having had a chance to glance through a couple thanx to NorTex, they seem well done, setting-oriented, handy.
(I just have a problem with the small font.)

As Frank said, the print type is tiny, but they are cheap, fun little adventures, I sold out of these at the con (I had brought 4 copies each to sell). You can order them directly from Geoffrey Mckinney.
