Perilous Mazes has been shelved
The Holmes clone won’t be published. I never played Holmes and didn’t have much more than a passing interest in this particular clone, but I’m sure that a number of players will be disappointed. Greyharp’s reasoning makes sense, though.

Willem Dafoe Joining Andrew Stanton’s John Carter of Mars
He’ll play Tars Tarkas. Shooting begins next year.

Wizards and Swordry
Save vs. Poison writes about weapons and armor for magic-users. I am at a loss about what to do about this, myself. I had planned to allow any class any weapon in S&W White Box, but now that I’m probably going all Labyrinth Lord all the time, I’m not sure where I stand.

He Wants to Hold Your Hand, Hand, Hand, Hand…
The, um, Octopus class for PCs.

Sandbox Accessories – Empire Ruins
Roads, bridges, watchtowers, and other remains of an earlier age. Personally, I’ve always thought Hadrian’s Wall was about as cool as it got.

    All excellent links, stellar job on spotting them.

    Why don’t you ever slam me on something? Tell me my magic-user spells are too weak or something?

  3. bat says:

    Oh, I am biding my time…

    …nah, kudos when it is due, and really, when you water down a spell like invisibility how can I slam it. No wizard mollycoddling this time around. But I will be watching, you will slip and we will see a two-headed giant monitor lizard archmage or something. It is a matter of time, really. 🙂

    Ach, I didn’t think of walls! And the Great Wall too, how could I have forgotten?!

    • Kilgore says:

      Duh. I didn’t think of the Great Wall. I guess because we usually see pictures of the restored/preserved parts it doesn’t look old enough or something to look like a remnant of an earlier age.

    Hmmm, here is an interesting link, with the mention of a Kilgore in relation to Savage Worlds. How curious.: http://shawntionary.com/clockworks/?p=31

    Hardly surprising if you ask me.

    Long live the Great Republic!

    It is a weird comic, not really that well drawn, but at twice a week it is well done. This Kilgore guy though, he needs to be brought to justice!
