I’m a winner!

Well, one of my ideas won something.  That counts for something though, right?

I’m pleased as punch, though, because there were a few other ideas in the running that I thought were very good ones.  I’m a little surprised so many suggestions focused on the grindhouse/extreme angle rather than the horror angle though.  I think LotFP:WF is not really a dungeoncrawl/D&D game so much as a horror game cleverly disguised as a fantasy/D&D game.

I’m not sure I’ll ever get to run LotFP:WF except perhaps as a one-shot or at a on though because at least one of my players is pretty dead-set against a game where most characters don’t get better at fighting as they gain levels, and I’m already stealing a few ideas from the game for my B/X game.  Still, I’m really psyched about getting the game as an object, even if I probably won’t be able to show it to my daughter or nieces or nephews until they are 17 (21?).  If the “Deluxe” edition ever gets reprinted (or at least the components in it that are not going to be in the “Grindhouse edition”) I’d pick them up, having heard a lot of good things about them.

This will also be a real boon since I’m planning to spend no more money on RPG stuff and minis until I finish painting (or selling/trading/giving away) the hundreds of naked minis I already have, which I anticipate taking all of next year.

  1. Congrats! We better see a review in the future…

    And cover up those naked minis… for shame!

    • Thanks! Yes, there will be a review. I believe Raggi was hoping I’d be able to construct an index of gratuitous sex, necessary sex, gratuitous violence, necessary violence, b/d/s/m by dominant gender, and so on, since apparently he got sidetracked in the editing process.
      The naked minis will be painted, come hell or high water.

  2. Congratulations! I missed the vote but you would have had mine for sure.

    • Thanks!
