Vacant Ritual Assembly #1

Suggested Price $2.00

Vacant Ritual Assembly is a brand new OSR zine. Directly compatible with Lamentations of the Flame Princess, but easily adaptable to other OSR games. 22-pages of content, 100% of which comes straight from my weekly LotFP campaign.

Issue #1 includes:

Dope Artwork from Corey Brin, Abigail Larson, and Sean Poppe

The Ghoul Market: Beneath a defiled chapel, the scavengers of the dead emerge from their tunnels to barter with the living and the damned. PCs bold enough to do business here can emerge with powerful magic, but what will they leave behind?

Meet the Skinsmith: A corpulent cyclopean demon who will perform voluntary surgical procedures on your PCs. Magical tattoos, hideous resurrections, artisanal cadavers!

Vespero the Antiquarian: A strange, sickly man who runs the curiosity shoppe at the end of the row. A weird “quest hub” NPC whose shop might offer PCs a glimpse of the Ghoul Market’s wares.

Luminari, Lady of the Golden Lamp: A strange firefly goddess from the deep woods.

Brahnwick is Dead: Complete one-session adventure. A flooded town overrun by madmen. An abandoned keep. A lake monster?

An interview with Chris McDowall about his new opus Into the Odd.

Greycandle Manor: An abandoned manor on the edge of town, ready for your PCs to inhabit and/or explore, but what’s up with that hole in the basement?

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.
