James Raggi of Lamentations of the Flame Princess and Rafael Chandler, known for the Pandemonio RPG, have joined forces in releasing No Salvation for Witches, a low-level adventure for the Lamentations of the Flame Princess RPG.
No Salvation for Witches takes place in England anno 1620, where six women perform a dangerous rite and commune with Terpsichore, the Greek patroness of dancers. Suddenly starving demons slither across the moors, monstrous nuns shriek in the infirmary, and within the Attic, a great unraveling awaits.
“It’s an absolutely killer adventure that will drive players up a wall, because it’s a completely non-linear format with lots of difficult choices to make, always something they can do but no clear indication about what they’re supposed to do. The adventure might have lots of combat, or lots of role-playing, or both, or neither, depending on what the players do. And there’s no planned ending setpiece – the resolution depends entirely on what the characters decide to do and what they can manage to do. Very sophisticated without being complicated.“, says Raggi who will publish this adventure as an A5 sized full-color hardcover book.
What makes this fundraiser quite unique is that it will be funded according to the pay-what-you-want principle. While the pay-what-you-want formula is something you see regularly for pdf releases on RPGNow, and the LotFP booth has been known to sell their books like this on conventions, a fundraiser in this fashion is a new concept and quite groundbreaking I might add.
Seeing that the project has reached 80% of its funding with 14 days left on the clock, we might start seeing more RPG projects appearing where the customer is trusted to not screw the publisher but offer a fair price for their releases.
