The Runes Of Doom, Part IX — 5 Comments

  1. Greetings, Lizard. Your critique is my thoughts exactly, and deservedly to a wider audience.
    Ha, however seriously, what is the link between Hell Spirals and Amber? I read Nine Princes trilogy and maybe Corwyn (?) eons ago, probably around the same time late 70s early 80s I was using a lot of Arduin in our game, but I don’t recall any “Hell Spiral” thing in Zelazny. Maybe it was a “Hell Spiral” like thing that was so obvious I just was oblivious that it could have been the source to Hargrave’s Hell Spiral. I’ve always wanted to have a Hell Spiral in a published work, but didn’t want to interfere with the Emperor’s Choice/Hargrave IP and I can’t see that Emperor’s Choice has any open source guidelines. Maybe if Dave’s IP “Hell Spiral” idea is related to a Zelazny IP idea then the construct’s IP is muddied enough for me to throw one in a published dungeon.
    Thanks for your blog, the sections you did on The Necronomican were very cool.

    • The entire “hell spiral” concept reminds me very much of “walking the pattern” in the Amber books. Maybe I’m misreading it entirely, but it seems too similar to be a coincidence…

  2. It is the same. Hargrave got the idea from the Amber books and added his own twist and a new name to the concept.

    Also, the color of the mystic moons, are suppose to represent the colors of Arduin’s moons. Hence, why their red, blie and white.
