The title makes me giggle, I feel like that's me in January! I almost feel bad for other indie publishers when lotfp releases something. It's like opening weekend of a Marvel movie, and a poor rom com also opens that day. Yeah I know I just compared lotfp to Marvel.
So here's what you need to know about Frostbitten & Mutilated.
Sometimes the snow will not stop. Under its particled screen like layers of veil that would make of the world a bride to an unknown, vast and unseen groom all civilization is wondering from its hearths and stone corners: What is to be done about the women? They spit and rage, they drown the taxmen, they hack the bellies of snakes and eat what they find, they abort babies and squeeze their milk into the bellies of troll-cats, they dwell apart among the wide white peaks, raiding, scheming, speaking to animals, willful and without trade or diplomatic discourse—the witch-women and amazons. They dominate and divide the Devoured Land. Who can see this ending well?
From the multi-award winning artist/writer behind Vornheim: The Complete City Kit, Red & Pleasant Land, and Maze of the Blue Medusa, this book details the bleak white wild created on the spot where the first goddess took the first bite out of the Earth, which maintains the balances and arrangements that held sway in the first days. It contains wolfpacks, cannibal giants, trolls, demons of the apocalypse as well as a wilderness kit with enough tables, generators and tools to keep your players busy until hell freezes over.
Frostbitten & Mutilated is a setting book for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional role-playing games.
Here's where you can get it. What is quite convenient is that you get the pdf and the book, since the book is travelling overseas this is quite handy!
I'm wondering what mashups are going to happen with "Vaginas are magic" considering the book is about amazons! Can't wait to read the play notes.

Zak is currently running a contest called #TerribleTakeContest
Basically you need to make fun of the new book, and whoever wins gets a piece of art created by Zak. This is super cool!
At some point I'd like to interview Zak, I really should work on a few questions.
