Legend tells of a wizard so arrogant that he felt the entire sky was naught but a lens for him to view the stars. So great was his hubris and defiance that even when smote with the power of storm and fire, the wizard laughed. He feared not retribution from man nor God, for he drew his knowledge from something greater. Something darker. Something outside. The legend of this wizard grew, first whispered by men in fear, and later in awe. But then there was no more news. No more talk. Something had finally brought the wizard low, for though the sky still blazed down on him and his abode, he no longer blazed back. And now youre going to walk right through this wizards front door. An adventure for beginning characters, players, and Referees, for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional role-playing games.

This volume collects the four adventures previously released as Tower of the Stargazer, Th e God that Crawls, The Monolith from Beyond Space and Time, and The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children: * Tower of the Stargazer presents a familiar traditional fantasy adventure location, the wizards tower, and adds cosmic horror to infuse the familiar with something strange. * The God that Crawls involves the mystery of what exactly lies in the catacombs beneath an ancient church. How far will the curiosity of your players take their characters before it is too late?* The Monolith from beyond Space and Time is the deep end of the Weird Horror pool, pure cosmicism and the most intense and pure concentration of Weird in the entire Lamentations of the Flame Princess catalog.* The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children is a bit of a farce, with an absurd premise that invites characters into a reality-bending environment where they will have much opportunity to make some very bad decisions. Includes new artwork! For use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional tabletop role-playing games. Made in Finland.

The midnight shadows of Renaissance Venice conceal intrigue, romance...and murder. "Combines historical context with lush sensuality and nuanced wit." — Publisher's Weekly Bianca Salva's love of science has led her to defy the conventions of her day and illicitly practice medicine among the poor of Venice. She's managed to keep her pass time a secret—until she is discovered over the lifeless body of a young courtesan, by the last person she'd ever want to see. Ian Foscari, Conte d'Aosto, is known for being rich, handsome...and heartless. Finding Bianca over the dead body, he concludes she's the murderer. Yet for reasons he cannot explain, her protests move him. He offers to give her one week to prove her innocence, but she'll have to move into his house and be his prisoner. Her other option: the authorities and certain death. Bianca has no choice but to agree to his maddening terms. She's furious at having to cede her hard won freedom, and unprepared for the effect of his presence on her, for the longings he awakes in parts of her body she's only studied in books. As Bianca struggles to focus on finding the killer, Ian fights his own battle between the undeniable attraction he feels for her and the painful scars of his past. When their mutual attraction blazes to life, they are both dazzled by it's force. Passion burns through their reserves, teaching them both to trust again. Love again. But this fragile alliance is soon tested. Lured into a web of scheming and betrayal, Bianca and Ian find themselves in a race against the clock to save their lives, their hearts, and the city of Venice itself. "Jaffe...develops a sensual, exciting, and amusing tale, richly embellished with details of Renaissance life." — Library Journal "Jaffe's characters are intriguing, and the plot's many twists and turns are wonderfully entertaining." — Booklist

Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest of the category. They have been written by the likes of Stephen R. Donaldson, Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind. Now add to that list David Farland, whose epic fantasy series began with The Runelords, continued in Brotherhood of the Wolf and the New York Times bestseller Wizardborn, and reaches its peak now in The Lair of Bones. Prince Gaborn, the Earth King, has defeated the forces arrayed against him each time before: the magical and human forces marshaled by Raj Ahten, who seeks immortality at any cost and has given up his humanity in trade; and the inhuman, innumerable, insectile hordes of the giant Reavers from under the Earth, whose motives are unknowable, but inimical to human life. Now there must be final confrontations, both on the field of battle, with the supernatural creature that Raj Ahten has become, and underground, in the cavernous homeland of the Reavers, where the sorcerous One True Master who rules them all lies in wait--in the Lair of Bones. The survival of the human race on Earth is at stake. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
