The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children

Suggested Price $5.00

The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children was LotFP's Free RPG Day 2013 release, and is presented here as a Pay What You Want item. If you want to pay $0.00 for it, no problem.

However, without financial pressures of keeping the page count down for the print version, the layout for this PDF edition has been redone from scratch (the print version was 36 pages + cover).

Half of all income from PDF sales here go straight to the graphic designer who did this work. The other half goes to the publisher/adventure author to invest in future releases.

About The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children:

LotFP’s 2013 Free RPG Day adventure, Better Than Any Man, was banned by many game stores around the world. The adventure was even accused by one participating store as being about “killing children.”

It wasn’t; but people see what they want to see, and because LotFP wants to work with retailers and be a publisher that produces what retailers want to see, we have decided that per that store's wishes, this year's Free RPG Day adventure should be about the killing of children.

Not to worry though—they are freaky crystal-headed children. Inhuman RPG cannon-fodder. ‘Monsters.’ So it’s okay. They deserve it. So you can have fun carving them up. Right?

A LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing adventure for characters of any level. As the title indicates, it is a dungeon crawl.

Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing is the horrific adventure RPG out of Finland that holds nothing back. It is part of the Old School Renaissance family of games, which makes this adventure broadly compatible with dozens of other old school games.

If you find The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children a sufficiently guilty pleasure, look for other LotFP adventures and supplements right here on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow!

Weird just to be weird, not particularly good but allows for multiple approaches to a quick scenario and then follows it up with a classic dungeon crawl. [...]

An review This module clocks in at 58 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page back cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, leaving us with 55 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review is mostly based on the physical version of [...]

If you like gonzo and dungeoncrawling with hints of perversion, this adventure's for you. This was too random for my tastes, altought the tables did have some interesting entries in them. But it's free, so no complaining. Also, surprise end of t [...]

I had the pleasure of playing this in a one shot with a great Referee. The setting stayed true to the "weird" that LotFP is known for. It was interesting and not so combat oriented. The exploration and puzzles were wild, and the overall exper [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
