Well, we all experience this from time to time. My last time was with Conan. Now it is with Middle-earth, and particularly with Hobbit(no wonder why). Recently acquireing the One Ring game I got crazy about running a sandbox campaign set in the Wilderland. No not in my usual grim 'n' gritty sadistic style, but in a more light-hearted, fairy-tale style, the way the Hobbit was narrated. At this point I'm gathering lore for this endavour(wether it'll be ephemeral or not). The official forum for the One Ring RPG is very helpful, particularly few threads about woodmen and their settlements. I'm also digging through some of the older stuff like Decipher's dwarves' sourcebook and merp's mirkwood and misty mountains. If I don't lose interest in this I'll probably run a game or two via g+ since none of my real-world players show interest in the Middle-earth game.

As the Barbaric Frontier campaign is on a hiatus due to my many duites around the university and my M.A. thesis, I have only little time to work on the Barbaric Frontier, still the worki is being done. Now I'm drawing more inspiration not only from Westmarck from Hyborian Age, vikings' Vinland but also roman conquest of the British Isles. Reading 43 A.D. and it's supplement Warband makes me want to run a game of small squad of rangers set deep in the Barbaric Frontier wilderness. I'll need to work out some more details concerning military service in the nordmarkian army and barbaric society. I think for the convenience I'll model them on the late roman military(and maybe polish obrona potoczna from XVc.) and germanic and celtic tribal society. Still conceptualizing my beastmen, I want them to be different from their Warhammer counterparts, maybe more akin to the Moreau's creations. Ok that's for now. If I'll have some spare time this evening I'll post a map and key to the Temple of the Frog God.
