The FOURTH Psychedelic Fantasies module is now available!

Paul Keigh has written an insane D&D module entitled Dreams of the Lurid Sac.

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.

How big is the module?

It's the same size as all the rest of the Psychedelic Fantasies modules:

16 pages in length
9-point Times Roman font
11" tall and 4.25" wide (so it will fit in your back pocket)

What does it look like?

Just like all the other Psychedelic Fantasies modules. Scroll down a bit to take a gander. Hint: Bright, bright (one might even say psychedelic) orange.

What is the module about?

"About"? "About"? This module is not "about" anything. It is the purest location-based module I've ever seen. Not one word is about anything other than the titular Lurid Sac. That's your location.

Confused? Think about where Han Solo flew the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back. Or, more precisely, into what he flew it. The Lurid Sac is freaking alive! The whole damn dungeon is one giant monster. And what a monster! The Lurid Sac is nothing less than the most amazing monster ever published for D&D. I can't tell you how cool the whole thing is. Summaries fail Dreams of the Lurid Sac, which is tightly and precisely written. It's weird that Paul was able to use such exacting language to describe something so fantastic, so outre, so crazy. He has raised the bar with this one. I think it one of the single best (and certainly one of the most imaginative) modules I've ever seen.

Do you have a picture with that?

No. To keep the price lower, none of the Psychedelic Fantasies modules have any art. These modules are not works of art. They are utilitarian products meant to take your players to places they've never been before.

Why buy only one crazy module when you can collect the set? The first three Psychedelic Fantasies modules are still available:

Beneath the Ruins


Within the Radiant Dome


The Fungus That Came to Blackeswell
