Common Law vs. Statutory Law — 3 Comments

  1. This is a really great way of looking at this. It immediately crystalized a lot of unformed thoughts in my head. I need to bookmark this post to refer to in future posts.

    And of course the situation I dislike the most is the common law judge with a poor memory and no court reporter. 🙂

    • Personally, I *am* the judge with poor memory, and that’s why I prefer the “statutory law” approach. Otherwise I’d have to dragoon players into serving as court reporters!

  2. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn’t find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called ‘The New Death and others’. It’s mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard’s King Kull story ‘The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune’ and HP Lovecraft’s ‘Under the Pyramids’.

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please let me know your email, and what file format is easiest for you, and I’ll send you a free copy. You can email me (news@apolitical.info) or reply to this thread.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:


    I’ll also link to your review from my blog.
