As members of a civilization in which we fight for comfort rather than survival, we have the luxury to imagine fates even cruele still. For our amusement.
And beyond that amusement lies those adventures that gave Lamentations of the Flame Princess its reputation. A reputation for publishing situations and scenarios that are nothing more than cruelty disguised as entertainment, designed so that friends and acquaintances will like each other, and themselves, less.
Adventures designed to make the sun seem to shine less brightly. Adventures designed to make the embrace of loved ones seem brutally cold. Adventures designed to disgust, repel, and traumatize players as their characters suffer horridly imagined fates and the Referee cackles at sharing their pain. As all good horror must.
This volume collects Tales of the Scarecrow, The Magnificent Joop van Ooms, Fuck For Satan, and Death Love Doom, four adventures previously only available in print as limited editions. For use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional tabletop role-playing games.
