Weird on the Waves is a B&W wavecrawl setting and toolkit for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess and other old school elf games. It is set in 1655’s Caribbean sea amid the rise of buccaneers and the beginnings of the golden age of piracy. Within the history you know are strange paranormal events and otherworldly intrusions: freakish mutations washing in with the tide, ancient structures rising out of the waves, and ships that are not ships...but monsters themselves.

It is a great and terrifying time in history to become rich and powerful...but only for those with the strength and guile to brave the weirdness on the waves.

The standard wavecrawl setting and toolkit book ($5.99) will contain all of the following:

  • A map and setting details for the Buccaneer Caribbean (Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola, Tortuga, and more).
  • New Class: The Mermaid, an elegant but monstrous reaver of the waves.
  • Expanded rules for seafaring adventure and combat.
  • Die Drop Tables for generating ocean hexes quickly and easily.
  • Sea of Monsters: 12 unique LotFP sea and land monsters.
  • Price lists for nautical goods.
  • Starter Adventure: Marooned Among The Dead, perfect for kickstarting a pirate campaign.

If you pay more ($10.99) your book will include additional content:

  • Adventure: Deep in the Belly, a dungeon-crawl inside the belly of a giant whale.
  • Scurvy Adversaries: 10 buccaneer and pirate NPCs to pit against your players.
  • Random Tables Galore: all the random results you’ll need to keep your campaign going.

Weird on the Waves PDF will be released on January 5th, 2018. Additional Content will be made available by January 12th at the latest.

Due to an unexpected delay, Weird on the Waves PDF will be released in late spring, 2018.

Disappointed to see that the release has been pushed back again, though I'm sure it can't be helped. Really looking forward to this!
