|The Unicorn Defends Itself|
The famous Medieval tapestry above provides a visual for what's been running through my mind for the last week.
The last two "End-of-Week" posts on this blog discussed my thoughts regarding running campaigns in either the world of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser or the world of Conan the barbarian.
Over the last week, my whimsical and ever-shifting mind migrated to thoughts of running a campaign set in some alternate version of the real-world Middle Ages.
So, of course, I ran out to the library and gathered up some source material. Of particular interest to me are the years around the year 1000. And coincidentally, there are several books I found that discuss life and events around that particular millennial milestone. These books include The Last Apocalypse by James Reston, Jr. Just the title makes my mind swirl with possibilities: a campaign that takes place in the years just before 1000 A.D., an Earth where magic has been a very real force, and God and the Devil are just as real.
Well, enough of that for now. Who knows what the next week will bring to my fevered brain! Until then, happy gaming, dear readers!
