Lego + Dungeons & Dragons = Awesome!

Maybe it's cause its late and I ate cake at 10:30PM  but I was lying in bed and I had a myriad of thoughts going through my head (hey I made a rhyme). 

But listen to this for a moment.

A line of Lego's based on the D&D brand.  Think about it Lego and WOTC get together and come up with these great sets of iconic D&D, AD&D play sets.

Could you imagine building a "Keep on the Borderlands" set? complete with the hermit in the tree? or how about the Moat house from the Temple of Elemental evil? A set of Lego minis with all the Iconic D&D brand characters? Has anyone thought of this. shouldn't someone be calling WOTC right now and telling them to look at this post?

People are always talking about gaming needing an infusion of new blood. What could be better than a horde of Lego Maniacs? Have you seen the stuff those guys make?

The money they drop on a new set, no questions asked?
I'm telling ya people,  it's a win-win!

Ok, it's back to bed for me now. I'm sure in the morning I'll think of all the marketing and business reasons this would never come to pass. But for now, at least I'll get to dream about it for a few more hours.

Dicey Tales is becoming a "thing"...

...in a good way.
It's taking up a good amount of time. I'm getting shit done that has languished on my hard drive for ages, forgotten projects that may finally see the light of day. I've received several submissions for Simon to review for the "Lemurian Lore" section of DT.
I'm trying to keep a tight reign on my artists and writers, so that everyone can make the 08/15 I gave them, allowing me to have DT#2 ready in late August/ early September.
Jason Chalker has agreed to continue his layout duties for a few more issues at least, so that's one worry less.

I'm also looking at a reissue of "Legends of Steel" for Savage Worlds with new adventures and expanded coverage of the world of Erisa ( I figured they came out with a new snazzy edition, I should too).

All in all it's a hectic time here at the Lair but it's a fun time as well.   So if you happen to see more "Sock girls" than normal(see below), it's only because I'm too damn busy to write about anything substantive.

Lemurian Lore in Dicey Tales

Simon and I have decided that Dicey Tales will offer a "Lemurian Lore" section in every issue starting with issue #2. 

In the section, Simon and others will offer a mix of short articles covering a variety of subjects - realm information, adventure hooks, area spotlights, notable NPC's, side treks, and such. 

All of the content in Lemurian Lore will be approved by Simon and considered "Canon" for the official Barbarians of Lemuria Campaign.
