Inspiration: Horror of the Zombies (aka The Ghost Galleon)

Here is one of the inspirations for The Lich Templars of Ossorio, my death knights for the Encounter Critical game. It's Horror of the Zombies (aka Ghost Galleon),the third Blind Dead film by the legendary Spanish director Amando de Ossorio. This is great verson of this movie. Take an hour and a half, and check it out.

Happy Birthday Robert E. Howard!

Happy Birthday to Robert E. Howard, the father of Conan, Kull and Solomon Kane, amongst other creations!

You can read many of his pulp stories online on the Wikisource Page for Robert E. Howard. But try to pick up a collection of his work in hard copy format. Good pulp like this is worth the effort.
