The first Psychedelic Fantasies module is now available!


First, the pictures (each worth a thousand words):

The front cover of the module:

Yes, the cover is detached:


The hand-drawn maps are on the inside of the cover:


The module is 16 pages long, and its font is 9-point Times New Roman:


The module is 11" tall and 4.25" wide:


That's right: The module will fit in your back pocket:



From the back cover:

Each adventure module in the Psychedelic Fantasies line revels in unconstrained imagination. Every monster, every magic power, and every magic spell is a unique and never-before-seen creation of the author. No orcs, fireballs, or +1 swords will be found within. Leave the familiar behind to explore hitherto undreamed of wonders…
  
Compatible with every old school version of the original fantasy role-playing game.

"What levels is the module for?"

This particular module by Alex Fotinakes is for low-level adventurers, who will have a better chance of surviving if they try negotiating for a change...

"So what's it all about?"

This is a single level (with two sub-levels) of the author's larger dungeon of Kihago. Never fear! This level is 100% complete as-is, but I hope we can convince Alex to submit further levels of Kihago. This particular level is dominated by two factions. Dull players will try to wipe them all out, and find themselves on the short end of the stick. Smart players will try to befriend one or both factions, and play one against the other.

The dungeon is weird. It has a lot of, dare I say it, psychedelic environments to explore. That's pretty much what this module is: A bizarre, site-based adventure that the players can explore simply because it's there.

"Doesn't it have any art?"

NO. To keep the price lower, none of the modules in the Psychedelic Fantasies line will have any art. These are not works of art. They are utilitarian modules meant to be inflicted upon your players.

"But you didn't answer my question!"

Ask away in the comments!

    International.

    "is the 5 dollars to include shipping?"
    You do NOT have to pay extra for shipping. The $5 covers it all.

  5. Could you say a few lines about what the module contains? Location-based? Some sort of plot? A lot of weird traps? Colorful NPCs? etc.

  8. Is it a limited print run - as I don't have any spare cash at the moment? Or can I wait a few weeks/months and still order a copy?

    No, this is not a limited print run. Instead, it is print-on-demand, so whenever you can afford a copy, I can print one out for you. :)
