The Three Musketeers

BBC's The Musketeers is finished and it was fantastic. With enthusiasm running high for this genre, I picked up a copy of the Triple Ace Games' All For One: Régime Diabolique.

To continue my obsession enthusiasm, I present all 18 episodes of Hanna-Barbera's The Three Musketeers...

  1. The Littlest Musketeer
  2. The Jewel of India
  3. A Letter of Peril
  4. The Ring
  5. The Plot of the Puppetmaster
  6. The Moorish Galley
  7. The True King
  8. The Pirate Adventure
  9. The Evil Falconer
  10. The Mysterious Message
  11. The Challenge for the Crown
  12. The Red Duke
  13. The Outlaw Archer
  14. Tooly's Dream
  15. The Haunted Castle
  16. A Fair Day for Tooly
  17. Tooly's Treasure Hunt
  18. Tooly's Surprise

I feel I've finally come to accept Savage Worlds as my go-to home RPG system. For a long time I was longing for and preparing to collect the Original Ubiquity version of the game, but I'm going with Savage Worlds mainly because it is a generic system and it enjoys a vastly healthy supportive community. So I'm throwing in my lot with the rest of the Savages.

As for the BBC show, I long for the next season- which has been confirmed!

Masters of the Universe gets a director

Progress with a Masters of the Universe film...
According to The Schmoes' Phantom scooper, Jeff Wadlow has signed on to direct Sony's planned reboot of Masters Of The Universe. That's signed, sealed, delivered -- they reckon it's only a matter of time before this one hits the trades. Wadlow had been lined up by Fox to direct their X-Force movie, but obviously that doesn't look good if he's chosen to bring He-Man, Fisto, Ram-Man, and the rest of the slightly pornographically monikered heroes to the big screen. Previous versions of scripts have veered away from the original cartoon quite a bit, but we have no idea what type of story Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lone Ranger) is currently working on. What do you think of this? Would you have preferred if Wadlow had stuck with X-Force? Is a Masters Of The Universe movie even a good idea in your opinion?

Pathfinder in space

Paizo is taking Pathfinder out in space. Here is a blog post from 3/25...

Iron Gods Roll Call

I've been wanting to do the Iron Gods Adventure Path for a long time, but it's not all that easy to just roll out a campaign that makes significant use of mountains of items and armor and weapons and creatures and hazards that the game doesn't yet have rules for. I'm talking, of course, about lasers and robots and radiation and gravity suits and nuclear resonators and atom guns and neurocams and K-lances and heavy weapon harnesses and robojacks and thoracic nanite chambers and graviton generators and more. What are all those things? I'm afraid you'll all need to wait a few more months to find out.
But what you DON'T have to wait for is the list of Iron Gods Adventure Path titles and authors! Because here they are! Long time readers will note some new names, some familiar names, and at least one old name risen from the murky depths of the past!
  • Part 1: Fires of Creation, by Neil Spicer
  • Part 2: Lords of Rust, by Nicolas Logue
  • Part 3: The Choking Tower, by Ron Lundeen
  • Part 4: Valley of the Brain Collectors, by Mike Shel
  • Part 5: Palace of Fallen Stars, by Tim Hitchcock
  • Part 6: The Divinity Drive, by Crystal Fraiser
Oh. And here's a spaceship. (No... this isn't the Silver Mount. That one's a LOT bigger.)

GURPS Renassaince and online character generators

No, not a GURPS source book about the Renaissance (though there is Hot Spots: Renaissance Florence).

This post is about what I observe as a possible GURPS Renaissance. I have never seen more blogs, videos, hangouts and general fan activity as I have lately. I could be wrong, it could be that I'm simply looking for it more. But it seems I've done that in the past and didn't see this kind of activity then.

I hope that there is a resurgence in interest in GURPS. Even if there really isn't, it's good to see all of this activity.

Anyways... here are a couple of powerful GURPS resources I had never seen before.
