Looking At Zak Smith's A Red & Pleasant LandLamentations of the Flame Princess. Hello children and welcome to another exciting installment of PrinceofNothingReviews.

There is a cruel Heart Queen: she is in a different castle and she is on a different mountain and she sleeps in a different wooden box but she is also hiding and dreaming. What few human inhabitants remain in Voivodja huddle in overgrown gardens behind enchantments or in wells I shit you not? But now I'm gonna hafta drag them into surreal-freaky-land? Er…okay, I can see that working in an adventure but in a protracted campaign that is going to get grating which may be the point.
