A haunted house adventure for low level characters, for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional role-playing games.

What others have said about the adventure:

"At it's simplest, Death Love Doom is a haunted house type of story. As such, it is dying to be used as a sort of Halloween type gaming session. I used to use Ravenloft one-shots for that stuff back in the day, but this - this would have been the "piece de resistance". Nothing would ever top it. That being said, I don't think I'd find players who would want to run it, or something like it, a second time. Once is probably all that any has in them." - Tenkar's Tavern

"There are very few adventure modules in the D&D space that perfectly capture the tone of a horror movie, and that alone makes this an amazing piece.  For that matter, I can't think of many Call of Cthulhu or horror scenarios that do the job this well, either.  In most COC scenarios, the players are committed to see things through, and they march in stalwart fashion with grim resignation towards the end of their characters.  The players here completely control their decision to enter the mansion, and how long to stay, and the weight of choice makes all the difference.  Unfortunately, there are some pieces of information, once known, that can't be forgotten - and if the occurrences at the mansion are not resolved, the matter doesn't end just because the characters flee into the night." - Dreams in the Lich House

"On the other hand, Death Love Doom isn't a departure for James Raggi. If anything, I'd say it's probably the "Raggi-est" adventure he's written, being both an unrepentant finger in the eye of those who want roleplaying game products to consist entirely of stuff you can show your mother and a creative exploration of some of his own dark feelings. That probably sounds terribly pretentious and I apologize for that, but it's the most succinct way I can explain the visceral, emotional charge of revulsion I felt reading parts of this adventure. What I felt wasn't just disgust at something I found "icky," though. It was something else I couldn't quite put my finger on, which is a big part of why I initially didn't know what to do with Death Love Doom." - Grognardia

"So, Death Love Doom is a good adventure. It’s also not for everyone. If you like the films of Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento and can sit through Cannibal Holocaust and Hostel, this will probably be right up your alley. If not, you may want to give this a pass." - Worlds in a Handful of Dice

"Death Love Doom is a haunted house scenario for Lamentation of the Flame Princess by James Raggi IV.  It is evocative; Raggi offers some great advice on running a horror game.  It is well constructed, well laid out and easy to follow.  It is also vile.  It’s not a bad adventure, indeed, for what it is, it’s a very good adventure.  It’s just that what it is, is disgusting and depraved." - Big Blue Die
