Thanks everybody!

​Caveman - These actually date from before AS&SH came out (thus the not so great resolution due to my old scanner). These were encounters from my home campaign during hex-crawl time. I have a few more of these but they're inside of buildings and probably a little too specific to be of use to others.

I could have been more clear, sorry about that. The right hand side is the standing part of the tower, the couple levels to the left are supposed to be the torn asunder top with the telescope lying on the ground.

Since I must spend my weekend off hunkered down in my Domicile of Doom, I figured I'd add this bit of literary deliciousness for you, my friends and companions of the night. It was released at a time when it seemed the only fantasy available were Tolkien pastiches of high fantasy that I found hollow and prissy. I was in the Corps at the time and I had my full of Mack Bolan et al, though fun, which were what was plentiful in the PX at the time.

Then I saw this baby on the racks.

Zorachus tells the story of Sharanaghim monk - a renowned honorable order of warrior/wizard/philosophers - who is called back to the city of his birth, Khymir.

...a city built by the fallen angel Tchernobog as an argument to God against the creation of organic life.

Things don't go so well.

Available on Ebay, sometimes found cheap, other times not so much. Even though Mark E Rogers is better known for the hilarious Samurai Cat series, caveat emptor: Grim and brutal, this book is not for the squeamish.

Thanks everyone!

​May attempt to tackle the armor sometime in the future, but the issue is source material. I have some books with quality photos of what still exists in museums and such, but there's a lot of stuff that didn't survive the ages and we only have period artwork to reference. Conversely, I doubt I will tackle the full plate stuff as there is so many different surviving examples.

Just whipped these up this morning so I could have all these in a single place to refer to, and figured it may be of interest to my fellow Hyperborea Seekers.

So much what you said are the exact same things that attracted me to AS&SH. That and fantastic experiences I have playing it with the groups at GaryCon and GameHole!

I have a buddy of mine who edits Chinese fantasy fiction as his job. He gets these rough translations and changes them to be readable by western audiences. They all seem to have a rather odd, or at least interesting commonality: thay are completely amoral protagonists who's only drive is the 'cultivation' of power. They usually start as a poor nobody, and over hundreds, if not thousands of chapters, they gain godlike status. And if they have to kill innocents on their path, they do so without any hesitation. Murder hobos to the nth degree. It's almost as if the concept of heroism is unknown to them.
