Pathfinder did a short series on mermaids and underwater adventure in which the mermaids were treated in a very similar way. They were mythical and scary, and really not to be trifled with. I'll see if I can dig up the actual issues they appeared in... I want to say AP #3.

Over the last few days I have been working on massively overhauling my website, the Blackmoor Archives. In addition to a massive facelift, I have added several new sections to the site and working to make the connections between this blog, the Archives and the Forum more seamless. I am pretty happy with the results so far, but will be fiddling with details over the next few weeks I suppose :)

In other news, we are now 160 people reading this blog! A warm welcome to member 160. Anything you can do to spread the word is appreciated.

Thanks! Looking back at things the rate of advancement was really really slow :lol:

Nice entry! I'm trying to figure out what kind of beast the machine represents. It looks like it could be the head of either a bull or a snake (or some other reptilian), but I can't be sure. What does it look like to you?

It was the classic RPG scenario - "I hit it with the axe."

The only problem was, Havard was the one being hit! :)

Wow, a re- release of the AD&D books, tempting to buy even for just nostalgia purposes.

And I agree with the commenters, a commemorative reprint Blackmoor book or D&D book for Dave Arneson is in order.
