There is only 1 printing of Carcosa published by LotfP.  It gets confusing because I believe the cover of the PDF looks different than the physical book because of some bonding issue with the material they wanted to use for a metallic effect on the print copy (if I am remembering correctly).  There were two earlier printings of Carcosa, one with the offensive parts removed and one with them in, but these were not done by LotFP.

Believe it or not it was printed as a supplement for OD&D (though done in 2008 and of course not a sanctioned product).  It was even released as Supplement V.

The ones you are seeing online are almost certainly the LotFP version.  There were not too many of the other two created.  I haven't been looking that hard for them but I have only seen them pop up once or twice.  For the most information on Carcosa materials check here:

List of Carcosa products | Original D&D Discussion


The original versions (expurgated and unexpurgated) were digest printed by Geoffrey, constructed and stapled at his house, you could only order them through Geoffrey himself.  I had a bunch of these at one time but have sold them at NTRPG con over the years.  Doubt we'll ever see these printed again so they are an interesting collector's item.

All the backer copies were shipped two weeks ago, so hopefully the ones that haven't arrived yet will do so this week.

Today I released the PDF version, Pay What You Want so you can read it first and then decide how much it's worth to you:

Bloody right module. I was skeptical at first, thinking it would be hard to follow up on last year's, but I was wrong. Some high points:
1. thematic similarities to Alien (1979), & other reproductive rights issues.
2. we have met the beings on the other side, & I suspect they are literally us. (I'm misusing the word "literally," but in an intentional ironic way so it's cool.)
3. usable by DMs as a permanent reference work for a variety of random events as needed. Will be interesting as characters go about their PC lives while enjoying the results.  
4. my son Andrew likes it too.

No Salvation for Witches: A Pay What You Want Book | Indiegogo

Running into the last three days of the No Salvation for Witches crowdfund.

The important points:

  • Full color hardcover book, pay what you want
  • PDF delivered to backers the day after the campaign ends, book to press a week after that (we are on target!)
  • Beat the final campaign average and get an upgraded physical book (bookmark ribbon!) plus bonus content if we hit 10,000€ (perfect for collectors!)
  • Sample chapter to look at: nsfwpeek.pdf - File Shared from Box
  • LotFP Production quality with Rafael Chandler writing (Chandler's Teratic Tome, a Pay What You Want monster book if you need to preview his style Teratic Tome - Neoplastic Press | RPGNow.com )

More details at the campaign page.

Thulian Echoes


Still available, I recommend this because a) collectors, this will be scarce... b) I love the premise - players find a journal detailing an expedition from 100o years ago, then when they read it, out come the pre-gens for them to play out the narrative... very meta-game :)  and c) very similar in tone and play to DCC, which I also love :)

Meanwhile, lots more LotFP hitting the streets... I picked up The Undercroft, a fanzine from Melsonian Arts Council in the UK, which is quite enjoyable and I recommend.

Anyone know of other third-party LotFP products/publishers?

Here is a link to another third party writing for LotFP ruleset.  I'm looking forward to grabbing a reprint of the first and the second issue when available soon.

I have been really enjoying this and the Croft 'zines.  LotFP has really taken my fancy.  I'm in the middle of writing up a good size sandbox setting and adventure for a dark winter campaign this year.  I have really enjoyed reaching back to pre-1984 Judges Guild and TSR adventures.  Lamentations has inspired a real quest to understand and experience some old school D&D.  I have played some classic adventures and first edition, but didn't really start playing until the early nineties during second edition, I digress.  I have over the past six months collected up about everything that is currently available and a deluxe boxset (without the adventures).  Recently I have been particularly enjoying No Salvation for Witches and The Seclusium of Orphone of the Three Visions.  I'm looking forward to the new referee book and a reprint of Vornheim (The Red and Pleasant Land by Zakk S. is fantastic).  What I love about most everything that I have purchased is that there is a toolbox quality that is heavily flavored, well...dark.  It has been a long time since I've been so inspired.  In short, the zines have been driving this fascination through the roof.

I'm interested in picking up a copy of A Single, Small Cut if anyone has one to part with.  :)

Or any of the older stuff as well! I'm beginning to really enjoy LOTFP too. It certainly adds darker flavor to things.  :)

Hi Axel!  He sent a note out a couple weeks ago... advises he's working on getting caught up on outstanding projects and they're going to be bigger/better than promised.  I have a few items yet to come, so far I haven't been disappointed by anything LotFP :)

Reprints of several hard-to-find Lamentations of the Flame Princess modules are currently available directly via the LotFP web store including Tales of the Scarecrow, The Magnificent Joop van Ooms and Death Love Doom. Carcosa has also been reprinted with a different cover and paper stock.

I've updated my checklist with these (linked below). The list also includes titles announced at one point or another that have not yet seen the light of day. Please post or PM any corrections.

Overall, I like the quirky, weird, adventures produced by LotFP, but I would like to see some feedback about these adventures and which one(s) you recommend for reading moreso than playing.  I liked Doom Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children and Better than Any Man if that gives you any insight to what I thought was interesting.   8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.
