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 🙂

Basically nothing RPG related to report this month. Have been watching more 1970’s and 1980s SF movies. Probably not going to be much except movies and some reading for the next few months while I finish my onsite clinical training.
Here’s a few pages of scans from my 1980s Holothom notebook to tide us over until next month. These are about spellcasting and religion. (I skipped over the several pages of custom spell lists I had made up for the campaign, but you can see the last bit of them on the first scan.)

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.
Since the last post I have watched:
When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth
The Land That Time Forgot
Journey To The Center of The Earth 2008 TV version
I’ve also started thinking about what sort of ruleset to use for “Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire.” I was thinking of taking a look at “Shotguns & Saddles” for instance. It seems similar to older D&D editions, but with skills and firearms. Haven’t read through it yet though. (Also it is Creative Commons, so can pretty much do what you want with it, as long as attributed properly.)
