I have added a page with links to 50+ other RPG blogs that I don’t want to lose track of after the RPG Blog Alliance shuts down at the end of April 2015. Will be adding more links as I extract them from my personal bookmarks.
Feel free to use the links yourself 🙂

I have come across the writeup of a scenario for TOON by Steve Jackson Games I ran at ConnCon ’97. (The file is dated 1999, but that must be when I typed it up from my handwritten notes. I specifically remember it was 1997 as one day of the con was on April 1st that year 🙂
It’s only 4 pages long, but it ran for the whole 4-hour slot even though I only had 3 players at the table. TOON is good for having to improvise from brief notes; just make sure to watch a bunch of Looney Toons and Tom & Jerry before having to run a game.
Anyway, here it is:
(I think I decided to dig up the file because I watched “Enter the Dragon” Thursday night for the first time in several years. The mind of a nerd works in strange ways.)
Since the last post I have not made any further progress on “Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire.”
However I did finish the “re-reading Moorcock” project as laid out. Currently reading “Elric at the End of Time” which is more of a collection of “lost tales” than part of the actual sequence.
I also have gotten quite a pile of RPG books! Pics below.
GURPS & BRP
Fantastic Heroes & Witchery, BOL & WOTRP
Stonehell & Mutant Future
I think that GURPS, BRP, and Fantastic Heroes & Witchery might be on the list of potential systems for writing up “Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire.”
Happy holidays, and hope to keep up with at least one update post a month in the coming year.
On the far side of the River of Fire are the underground Mines of the Jeweled Ones. They are reached through an underground passage that runs far beneath the River of Fire, and apparently unknown to the Jeweled Ones, also via a tunnel from the Lair of the Reptile-Men.
The mines are worked by human men (the grown male offspring of the Cave-Women that are not selected for other tasks.) It is rare for a man to try to escape from the mines, since they have been raised since infancy by the Jeweled Ones and know no other life.
The Cave-Women will occasionally hazard the trip through the Lair of the Reptile-Men to go in search of mates, since the only other men they know of are the jungle savages.
The mines are but one part of a complex of industries in the second ring of the Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire.
Several weeks ago watched these:
One Million Years B.C.
At The Earth’s Core
Part of the delay in posting was waiting for a copy of “When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” to show up. Which it finally did today.
“At The Earth’s Core” is an astounding movie as inspiration for a game setting. The 1970’s effects somehow work well with the Victorian-era characters and sensibilities.
I have gotten the book editions from “Bison Frontiers of the Imagination” for “The Land That Time Forgot,” “At The Earth’s Core,” and “Pellucidar” and will be reading them someday when I have time.
Soon I will be watching “When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” as well as “Mysterious Island” and the 2008 made-for-TV version of “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”
