Lamentations of the Flame Princess - Weird Fantasy - Tower of the Stargazer. It's a hell of a lot to write to name one of James Raggi's latest works, but it is worth it. It's included in the Weird Fantasy boxed set that James just released, but its also available separately.
So, what do you get for your purchase? More then you might expect. You get 16 pages crammed full of text, a wrap around cover which, just like TSR's old modules, includes all the maps the DM needs on the inside cover, and cover art by Peter Mullen.
Now, as for those 16 pages full of text? James outdid himself. Seriously. The adventure itself is excellent and extremely deadly (as one would expect with Raggi writing it). Its not just another Wizard's Tower. But that's not where the value lies. The value is in James' notes. Notes on the playtest, what worked and what didn't. Notes on WHY he wrote something one way, and not another way. Notes that just about any DM will read and say "I just learned something useful". All that hidden like little Easter Eggs in an an already sweet piece of work.
I really need to sit down with the Tutorial Booklet. I suspect there will be things to learn there too.
