Chapter 4 of Eckard of Kor is up on our Patreon project. One hundred pennies gets you access to new Far Away Land stories every month! You can't beat that with a dead eyezor leg.
The latest chapter in Eckard of Kor's story is available on Patreon. You can get access to Eckard's story and all the others for $1. I generally post two or three chapters a month. We are pretty close to reaching our $20 goal on Patreon at which time I will begin recording audio versions of each story.
I love Star Wars and pretty much everything Star Wars related. While the prequel films aren't my favorite, I don't hate them by any means and the more I watch Episodes 2 and 3 the more they grow on me (I can't say the same for episode 1 but I have only watched it a couple of times). Blah blah blah. Empire is my favorite. I watched it on betamax at my cousin's house in the early 80s and I remember everything seeming completely huge, like I was part of it all. I felt wrapped in the film, like the rest of the world didn't matter while I was on Hoth and Dagobah.
I liked Episode 7 as well. My wife and I went to see twice in the theater, the first time on opening night and the second in a completely empty theater where it was just us, our own private viewing. We were able to talk during the film and discuss theories and it was a good time.
I thought Episode 7 it was a nice transition. It was an introduction for new characters and a new generation of Star Wars fans and I was entertained. All I am looking for in stories, films, and games is to be entertained. If that happens, if I can leave the real world for a couple of hours, I have that catharsis.
Needless to say, I am pretty excited about Rogue One. Also, Vader.
Now, I haven't had the chance to watch the full talk but the first twenty minutes is really interesting. Tim kask talks about meeting Gary Gygax and the early days of Chainmail and TSR. It's pretty fascinating stuff .
When I was a kid my dad gave me a set of art books from Museums around the world, each museum with its own book. They were full color plates of all the most popular artists. One of these books featured the Prado in Madrid and in that book was included The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. I was fascinated by the imagination in the piece and it has stuck with me ever since. I have always loved artists like Bosch, Peter Brueghel the Elder, and Jan van Eyck. Something about their works, the great detail, the color, the whimsical nature - its something that holds nostalgia for me in the same way that Erol Otus, Larry Elmore, Boris Valejo, and Jeff Dee do. It's all part of my influence and my childhood.
Now, watch this metal as hell video featuring an animated Last Judgment from Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.
I was doing some research into the the OGL and I wanted to know if it was legal to use the license in a certain way. Here is what came up on Google as I was typing...
So, apparently a lot of folks out there are interested in whether or not it's legal to kill a clown. That makes sense. From this list it looks like people are interested in killing clowns, owning foxes, dumpster diving, and open carry.
Now, turn that into a game.
