Yes, it's basically to avoid double jeopardy, for lack of a better term. The party gets XP for achieving the magic item, but they don't get MORE XP for selling it later -- they just get the gold for the sale.

Hello, Antalon. I have always reckoned it by the 24-hour period.

One possibility is they could exist in isolated regions heated by volcanoes.

Which is exactly what we have going on in Joseph Salvador's "Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess."

Apparently they have several earlier albums as well.  Fun stuff.

What issues did he write? I've got them all, I'll just need to reacquaint myself.

Yes, the CAS story was inspirational, but I wasn't attempting to emulate it. Much like Atlantis, the location of Mu has been imagined and reimagined many times. In my conception, as detailed in the Gazetteer, they were once coevals with Hyperborea, Atlantis, and Lemuria, but they regressed overtime and abandoned their technology, simplifying their lives and (inspired by a Vance story) boiling down their language to a limited number of words. Still, like the Atlanteans, the technological artefacts of their ancient past may be discovered in hidden places of the realm.

It remains a suggestion to referees that if a cleric or priest is dedicated to but one specific deity (or even a pairing, I suppose), then that deity might not be happy with the one who reads a prayer from an opposing deity. So, if a priest of Apollo starts delving into a Thaumagorga prayer book, I as referee would probably curse the player in some fashion. But it's really not written as a hard rule but rather a guideline for campaign flavor.

I check these pages every day in the hopes the ritual will somehow speed the printing process.  I'm pretty sure it's working.

The books are still in layout at this time. I look forward to sharing some of those samples in the coming weeks. Cheers!

In about 20 minutes I will be live on Talking Crit with Tenkar and Bad Mike! These guys run a great program. In fact, it was on their program that I announced the third edition of HYPERBOREA, which is now in the final couple days of its Kickstarter campaign. Stop by and visit! ~Jeff Talanian
