    Magic World: Hail and Farewell

    As far as I can tell, Magic World and its supplements have disappeared entirely from the Chaosium website in both print and electronic versions.

    Black Spear: Bucolic Fantasy Role Play--Any Good?

    Drivethru RPG is a real Fibber McGee's closet. Checking it for the Deal of the Day today, I stumbled on Black Spear: Bucolic Fantasy Role Play, published by Sad Fishe Games. It seems to be an Openquest variant, but maybe with a more ancient/Bronze Age feel. It's pretty cheap: $2.95 US for the...

    Raiders of R’lyeh--Any Opinions?

    Raiders of R'lyeh, from Cipher Bureau, is the Deal of the Day at Drivethru today (10/12). I'd not heard of it; it seems to be an OGL Call of Cthulhu clone set in the Edwardian era, complete with system and setting. Does anyone have any opinions or experience of it?
