Lamentations of the Free RPG

There are five game stores in Madison, Wisconsin and only one of them was participating in Free RPG Day.
That store wasn't carrying the Lamentations of the Flame Princess Free RPG because "This is a family store. We don't carry R-rated games like that."
This same store seems to carry all things Call of Cthulhu, Game of Thrones, and Warhammer. You don't get much more R-rated than those three.

Update: Two of my friends found a copy for me at a Chicago gaming convention. After flipping through it, I only found one picture that could be construed as objectionable material and it's way in the back, and some of my old White Wolf books have similar pictures in them. Remember kids! Lame excuses do not win you customers.


  1. I ended up with an extra. Would be willing to drop it in the mail for you, as a thanks for the playbook post.

    1. Wow! Thank you for the generous offer, but I have a few friends who went out of their way to get me a copy in Chicago.

    2. No problem!

      Myself, I wanted one of the dice towers, but I had to run the D&D Game Day at the local hobby shop, and they don't participate. Ah well, maybe I'll find someone who'll trade locally.

      As far as the adventure itself, I agree that it's not really outrageous. But I think the "objectionable content warning" business was a way to make the adventure edgier. I wasn't too impressed. And the final encounter blows - I know if I was a player, I'd be pissed.
