Re: Whips

My modest proposal: THE WHIP (a.k.a BULLWHIP) A whip can be employed to either ENWRAP or HIT the target. One of these two options must be announced by the player before any rolls or referee adjudications. To enwrap: (armour damage reduction does not apply) To enwrap, the range to target must be a fe...

Re: Lore skills

May be a boring name but how about ancient lore (written) I suppose it could even be a sub skill similar to D&D 3.5 Bardic Lore . Don't know if this helps? Paleography, and/or Epigraphy. :lol: Linguist Sp. Sk. can be for currently-spoken languages, while Paleographer or Epigrapher could be reserved...

Re: Epic News

Yes, if true, it is good news.
My current collection of Green Spines ends with #45. The higher-numbered ones have proven beastly difficult to find. If only they would be available in North America, too. :)

That's an outstanding idea! And the Carson of Venus series, and the Pellucidar series as well! ERB + AFF2e would be a match made in heaven, like chocolate and peanut butter. 8)

I was just trying to get the proverbial ball rolling. 8) Try and destroy a sentient artefact of pure evil before it obliterates the universe (the Loc-Nar of the movie Heavy Metal).
