One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
Greetings fellow Grognards, Fantasists, and "Old School" FRPG Enthusiasts!

Limited Editions (Signed and Numbered)
El Raja Key's Arcane Treasury (with Red Cover Daemonic & Arcane): 200 Limited Editions. This is a Limited Edition DELUXE SET of both titles, with only 200 deluxe sets being issued. There will be no reprints of this set and it will only be available through Pied Piper Publishing and will not be available from retail outlets. This deluxe set comes with a parchment-letter certificate indicating issue-number, date issued and includes both author's signatures and short biographies.

There may be unsigned and unnumbered (Standard Edition) reprints of this title as future demand warrants; and any reprints of this title will be done in a different cover color and not in green card stock as the signed and numbered 1st printing. Price: $11.95.

Special Offer to Our Loyal Fans!

Pied Piper has discovered a bug in the handoff from the PPP order management software to Paypal when any order is placed using Firefox 3.0.6 (the newest version of Firefox 3). The bug does not handoff the order successfully to Paypal, and generates a "Sorry — your last action could not be completed" error which prevents login to Paypal as part of the PPP check-out process. Orders placed using Firefox 184.108.40.206, and Internet Explorer 6.029 have been tested and valided to function properly with Paypal's handshake. Orders may still be placed using Firefox 3.0.6 through a two-step process: 1) by filling out the PPP order normally, and then 2) after receiving the Paypal error, logging into Paypal manually to send payment for the order to firstname.lastname@example.org (referening the order number from your PPP email confirmation, and sending the total payment from that order confirmation email). Such orders will not be charged twice, since the initial checkout from PPP does not result in a successful Paypal payment (if that somehow still occurs, overcharges will be refunded promptly).
The Piper's Corner showcases articles, product previews, product excerpts, and interviews with PPP staff, and will hopefully broaden our customers' awareness of what we are doing and the steps we are taking as a company to provide you with the best possible products and services. The newsletter will be published irregularly until we get its publishing rhythm down by coordinating its release with upcoming product schedules and other breaking news, at which time it could become a quarterly 'zine. Take a look at what we are doing and where we are going by downloading the free PDF file here.
We also have several news announcements and links under the UPCOMING menu.
One of these items announces a dear project of mine which involves publishing all of my ancient Lake Geneva Campaign Castle, Outdoor, City and Special levels and Original Campaign information, circa 1972-1985. Note our online product information as well as covers for two of the products due out this year at this link that will be live on February 15th, 2009. Also note information in our newsletter about this.
Pied Piper Publishing wishes to thank all of our past customers, fans and those that have worked closely with us and have lent encouragement and support in the past, including the fine folks at the ACAEUM, DRAGONSFOOT, CANONFIRE!, Knights & Knaves Alehouse, ENWorld, and elsewhere!
