Has anyone ever run a campaign using this? 

I popped the Dragonlance cartoon on for my boys. Man, it is terrible. You think they might have spent more then a few bucks on the animation!

I must obey the rules
I must be tame and cool
No staring at the clouds
I must stay on the ground
In clusters of the mice
The smoke is in our eyes
Like babies on display
Like angels in a cage
I must be pure and true
I must contain my views
There must be something else
There must be something good
Far away... Chris Cornell

There's never anything on television. 

Bloody hell but Pintrest is needy. Email after email of, " pleeeez come look at these random pins...pleeeez." I see a break up coming soon.

The 13th Warrior never gets old. Great little film.

I am a Golden God!

I just watched the original Star Wars as it was seen in 1977. It's a restored 35mm print version and man, it is fekkin' glorious.

Does anyone remember this? This washed up on my shores round about '87 or so, just as I had come across the 1st Edition DM's book. We had been playing Red-box D&D for a while back then and between those two books my mind was blown. The authors were British which I found a bit weird but it highlighted to me that D&D was now a global phenomenon and not just an American one. Inside it mentioned games I had never even heard of like Boot Hill, Gamma World, En Garde even something called Tunnels&Trolls... also, there were other Games Companies as well, Avalon Hill and Flying Buffalo, not to mention Judges Guild. Man, these words held weight in my mind, these were serious things that I wanted to try and discover like lost treasures or portals to other worlds, and when I thought about them or told my friends about them, in my mind's eye they were 20ft tall and carved in stone. They were mythic. They had power. It was informative, telling you about the types of D&D you had, and how to get the best out of the game. They even had a cool dungeon in there called, The Shrine of Kollchap (link below) I remember it fondly. It had lizardmen, vomiting cave locusts, statues, and a magic sword called the Sword of the Sorcerer! ( I think) But all this mention of other games etc made me feel like Luke stuck on Tatooine , that I was never going to get to experience any of it being stuck in the anal fissure of the world. But that just made us all more creative, what we couldn't buy we built ourselves. Even dice. Yup, we even made our own polyhedral dice from thin cardboard and sellotape. That's how desperate we were. Good times! Anyway, I am older now, and I have several of the products I lusted after so badly back then, I also get to go to Gencon as well. So it hasn't been all bad :)
Below is the link to the module that was in the book. For a proper review of the book go to as he does a more in depth look at it. He also hosts the dungeon below. Big thanks whoever you are!
