This has unintentionally inspired some of the fluff of my game-world and I have to go back and rethink who the actual villain was of that movie. Well, it’s probably still the jingoist douche-bag guy, but there’s a lot of other options than just blue anti-technology people and forceful military takeover with thinly painted veneer of technological progress. I choose neither trope. Peaceful and voluntary trans-humanism please.
Check out this creative and crafty blog. They do a ton of impressive terrain and miniatures for tabletop games. Seeing the dungeon creations here have inspired me to start a ground-up redesign of my own dungeon building system. More realistically, I’ve been somewhat annoyed by the usability of my own room tiles but lacked sufficient motivation to change. Thanks Grimm for being just the spark I needed (to add something new to my already long to-do list of crafts and projects).
When it comes right down to it, why shouldn’t the economies of Gygaxian inspired fantasy worlds not be subject to a careful and rigorous mulling over by economic laypersons?

An interesting neo-reaction blog to read. A well reasoned writer and interesting to read (even if I don’t necessarily agree with the conclusions/policy suggestions). I suspect I like it most because he’s a fellow traveler in the sense of being outside the Overton Window as well as taking a calm, rational approach to hot-button topics. Maybe that will change as I read more? Who knows, but it sure is a good read.
