Having recently read about Charles R. Saunders passing I read and greatly enjoyed Imaro: splendid prose, great world-building and pulp vibe. I look forward to reading the others in the series, and highly recommend them for a pulp-Africa setting. I'll probably take a look at the old d20/3e era Nyambe products by Atlas Games. I'm assuming, based on it's RPGGeek ratings, that it's got good inspirational material for AS&SH.

Re: Imaro

I had Nyambe a bit ago and it was lost in a culling of d20 product...It was a solid product but we downsized and so did my collection.

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”
