Contest: Post Your WTF Were They Thinking!?!

The Glory Hole Dwarven Mine post got me thinking that there must be other misnamed, mispresented or otherwise damn awkward to look at now, products that have been released over the 35+ years that this hobby of ours has been in existence.

So, add your picks to the comment section of this post (and tell us why its a winner).  In a few days, I'll put those picks into a survey at the top of this page, and you, the readers, will decide the winner.  If we get enough entires (edit - if we hit at least 5 entries, I'll add a second prize package) we'll add a prize package or two.

The winner (or winners) will get the following package curtesy of RPGNow / OneBookShelf:

One Night StandThe Warren of the Death Spider (Pathfinder) [Otherworld Creations]
Script Crypt Volume 2: Four Damned Scripts [Crucifiction Games]
Volunder (Mega Dungeon; D&D/OGL) [Stainless Steel Dragon]
QUEST CARDS Game Set 3 [Fuller Flippers]
Incorporated Volume 1 [Brutal Games]
Deadlands: Reloaded Player's Guide [Pinnacle Entertainment]

edit:  I'll be adding the entires here as a reference

from mikemonaco - Book of Erotic Fantasy

from Jim -  Of Skulls and Scrapfaggot Green

from Ze Bulette - Starsilver Trek


  1. You mean besides that d20 sex manual? Called the "Book of erotic fantasy" or something like that? I would be concerned if I found that on someone's bookshelf, or if one of my players brought it to a game (especially since we're all ugly guys).

  2. The JG module, "Of Skulls and Scrapfaggot Green" always seemed like a bad title for a module. http://www.retroroleplaying.com/book/skulls-and-scrapfaggot-green AND IT WAS A GEN CON TOURNAMENT MODULE!!!

  3. @mikemonaco - ack! I remember that. Never saw a copy, but I remember it

    @Jim - JG might be the source of a few entires ;)

  4. Yeah, on the JG note, here's an entry. "Wait, what? Oh, maybe it's for their Traveller series of modules.. Hmm, noo.."

  5. @ ze bullete not getting anything the link besides tripod... name it please

  6. Starsilver Trek - maybe this will work better: http://i.imgur.com/FYIBl.jpg

  7. that works! Adding to the list. We are at 3 entires... if we hit at least 5, I'll add a second (identical) prize package into the mix ;)
