Massive Influx of New RPGs
In the last week we had a huge stock and restock of various RPGs.
Lamentations of the Flame Princess - Fermentvm Nigrvm Dei Sepvlti
Miracles, wonders, manifestations of heavenly favor: to the ales of the Abbey of St. Christopher have been attributed all these and more divine miracles. The abbey’s ales are celebrated far and wide, gossiped about from Ghent to Köln, and guzzled as much for pleasure as for their supposed curative powers.
You know well the modest inn that stands outside the abbey wall: you’ve guzzled those blessed beers in its taproom, counted ill-gotten coins in its rooms, tossed and turned through nightmares aplenty in its beds. But nothing can prepare you for the horrors that await when, late one night, you wake to find the church engulfed in flames, its bloodied brothers slaughtering one another, its steeple-bell above tolling for the dead, the dying, and for mercy from heaven above. Written by Gord Sellar, widely published author and co-translator of science fiction, homebrewer, and musician living in South Korea. Art by Gonzalo Aeneas, an award-winning Spanish illustrator and comics and tattoo artist. FERMENTVM NIGRVM DEI SEPVLTI is an adventure for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional role-playing games.
