What's New

Books

You've found the home of Thomas Harlan's OATH OF EMPIRE series from Tor Books, which includes The Shadow of Ararat, The Gate of Fire, The Storm of Heaven and The Dark Lord.

And In the Time of the Sixth Sun, which is a science-fiction / archaeological-mystery/ space warfare epic set in a far-future dominated by the Méxica (Aztec) Empire, which currently includes Wasteland of Flint, House of Reeds and Land of the Dead. This series is also published by Tor Books.

We also host a wiki devoted to the fabulous work of Kenneth Bulmer, perhaps better known as Alan Burt Akers:

Gaming

Crusader Earth

Crusader Earth, which is a D20-system role-playing universe set on historical Earth in the 1100's, mostly centered in the Holy Land and Nabatea. Most of the components of this universe have been published in DRAGON and DUNGEON magazines, published by Paizo Publishing.

Lords of the Earth

This is also the home of LORDS OF THE EARTH, an incredibly addictive play-by-(e)mail strategy wargame. In 2003, Lords was nominated for an Origins/GAMA award as Best PBM Game of the Year.

Tales of Nihongi

Nihon-gi was set in Feudal Japan during the period following the Tokugawa restoration in the 1400's.

Great War In Europe

Colin Dunnigan has compiled and consolidated an up-to-date rulebook for XTR's GREAT WAR IN EUROPE (including the Middle East expansion). This is a pretty cool game covering World War One.

It's available in Word97 format and PDF.

The Rimworld Ventures Expeditions

This is an science-fiction game world set in the Babylon Five universe (a TV show on the TNT network, created by Joe Straczynski for the Warner Brothers PTEN consortium). The players are employees of the Rimworld Ventures corporation, an Earth-based xenoarchaeological concern with an office on the Babylon Five station. This campaign formed part of the background for In The Time of the Sixth Sun.

The Rise of the Hûkun

This is a fantasy game world populated by anthropomorphics (fuzzy animals that walk upright and have thumbs). The players were, at first, newly inducted members of the Seven Cities League Iron Legion. Later, after getting into a lot of trouble, they were wandering mercenaries. This game used a fusion ruleset based on both the Steve Jackson Games GURPS system and on Chaosium Game's Pendragon.

Legends of the Past... (Warning! Lots of graphics on this page)

Since Tom's been doing this kind of gaming since junior high, he has many skeletons in the closet. Some of his previous games are summarized here.
