Lusus Naturae - My first Kick Starter

Wow Kickstarter has become all the rage these past few years. Not sure why I felt the need to resist for so long, but as a shopper I like to check out my products ahead of time, read some reviews, get an idea of exactly what I am getting and then take the plunge. Kickstarter always felt like something of a gamble. But, it's also pretty awesome, and I am sure you all know that already ... because, per usual, I am the last to the party.

I have been tempted by some Kickstarters past, but didn't have the money, or I learned about them too late. This time, the buzz surrounding this Kickstarter has reached me early enough, and I have a little money, so ... I decided it was time.

Lusus Naturae is a collection of weird and awful monsters for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. LotFP is an OSR game and this collection will easily work for any old style D&D inspired game system. I usually "steal" creatures from every source I can get my hands on, converting to my game of choice has never really been an issue regardless of system.

I am working on the start of a Numenera campaign and this seemed like a nice addition. Also, I am a fan of LotFP, but to my knowledge there's not really any kind of "monster manual" for it, and this little hardcover seems like it will go nicely with that game.

Anyway, I'm a Kickstarter Supporter now.




  1. Hey, Jeff, thanks so much for the support! I hope you enjoy the book.

  2. I personally have had very good luck with Kickstarter, having backed many projects. The only usual problems are with time delays. Given many major mainstream game publishers also have delays, I'm not bothered by this at all. I've read some horror stories, but by and large I'm happy with the projects I've backed.
