Straffshire is a gonzo, high fantasy setting for Labyrinth Lord and other fantasy role-playing games. In the plane-shifting village of Straffshire, mortals, fey, demons, undead, sapient animals, and other creatures from across the planes live uneasily together.

The village is surrounded by a wasteland of wild magic and caught in a cold war between a demon lord and a fey deity. Powerful magic is common, and the village’s eccentric, decadent wizards have transformed their community into a weird realm where the supernatural runs rampant.

Straffshire is packed with larger-than-life characters and locations. There is Bear, the surly, militaristic bear paladin, and Jert Breeboz, the amphibian necromancer who just wants a friend. Within the village is the Polliwog Public House, a social club where bourgeois wizards hobnob and play magical table games, and the Dunman Library, a decrepit, subterranean archive operated by an angry elemental and haunted by a ghostly warlord. Beyond the village are the Planar Wastes, an ever-changing landscape wracked by magical storms and filled with gates to other worlds.

Straffshire and its environs could be the springboard for many adventures, or the basis for an entire campaign.

Features:

  • An unpredictable setting full of magic, monsters, planar travel, weirdness, and danger
  • Detailed descriptions of the setting’s important people, places, conflicts, factions, and history
  • Tools for running adventures in the village and the magical wasteland outside its walls
  • 6 new monsters
  • 50 outrageous new magic items such as the potion of child development and the living stuffed animal
  • Numerous opportunities for conflict and adventure

For several months I’ve been searching for something to kick off a Labyrinth Lord campaign. A wastepaper basket full of crumpled up ideas is the only evidence of my failure at getting the idea for the basis of my campaign down on paper. Then I came across this. I cannot put into words how awesome this book is. I’m awaiting on my POD, settling on printing out the PDF because I couldn’t wait. Straffshire is exactly what I’ve been looking for.

Are you the gentleman who did the Advanced Mutant Companion, Book of Races, etc.?

I am that gentleman! I wrote the Straffshire book with my brother under the name Giant Space Shrew. Since my brother and I are collaborating now, I'll be publishing under this alias a lot more from now on.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll get to work on a print version. The book is already formatted for print, so it shouldn't be too hard. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for asking! I hadn't decided yet. I take it you would like a print version, eh? If I see some more interest, I could be easily convinced.

Format
Original electronic
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.
