Mike's Appendix N Addendum!

Keeping up with the meme going around (and this list is not very organized or complete):

Anybody who wrote for Weird Tales.
J.R.R. Tolkein
C.S. Lewis
Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edgar Allan Poe
Michael Moorcock
Ramsey Campbell
L. Frank Baum
Lin Carter
Sir John Mandeville

Conan the Barbarian
Hawk the Slayer
The Ator Movies
The Deathstalker movies
The Sword and the Sorcerer
The Warrior and the Sorceress
The Evil Dead trilogy
Countless Hercules/Goliath/Machiste movies
Yor the Hunter from the Future
B-movies galore

Dungeons & Dragons
He-man and the Masters of the Universe
She Ra Princess of Power
Thundarr the Barbarian
Galtar and the Golden Lance
The Herculoids

Comic Books:
The Conan adaptations (Marvel and Dark Horse)
The Warlord
Arion, Lord of Atlantis
Arak, Son of Thunder
Skull the Slayer
The TSR/DC comic books of the late 80s-early 90s
Dagar the Invincible
Mighty Samson
Turok, Son of Stone (original series)

As I said, this is incomplete. Regarding the cartoons, I am a child of the 80s. Many of the ideas I have used in Fantasy RPG games have been "borrowed" from cartoons. Also notice the amount of bad movies and such on my list. I am of the firm belief that we can learn as much if not more from our failures than our victories.

See ya later
