An OSR roleplaying game of weird fantasy with a horror edge to it; LofFP is a system with no default world setting or mythos, instead it provides "a sinister and horrific twist on traditional fantasy gaming".

Experience Points are gained in two ways ? Defeating Enemies and Recovering Treasure. Defeating enemies is a minor way of gaining experience. This is not a game about combat or slaying foes; these activities are simply frequent necessities in the harsh reality of the game. Characters who prefer to fight when it is unnecessary are lunatics, possibly psychotic, and not likely to survive long in a game run by a competent Referee. Recovering Treasasure is the primary method for gaining XP in the game. However, not all monetary gains are counted as "treasure".
