First off, apologies to Zak Smith (and Lamentations of the Flame Princess) for my shameless "hack", as it were, of the title of Zac's inspired "Frostbitten & Mutilated" book. I just picked a copy up at my local and have been ravenously devouring it last night and today. Living in Canada I get quite enough of the cold in real life so the sub-zero setting of his books appeals to me less than it might to some.
It occurred to me that it need not be set in a frigid northern climate at all. Why not use it for inspiration for my Ngála game? Why not, indeed! With that in mind, I am stripping away the freezing cold and bringing on the sweltering heat and monsoon rains, transporting the setting to Southern Tsolyánu...
"Lost, Bitten & Mutilated" is my Indian takeaway, as it were. :-)
