"U.S. Gold" - a British game publishing company devoted to bring american games to the european market : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Gold

Sad, that there haven't ever been a similar thing vice versa.

For inspirations :

The Vφlva

Dνs

The hero of Helgi

Tolkien's concept of fλa and hrφa

The difference between body and spirit in this concept as shown by an example

Tolkien's concept of the Seen and the Unseen

The concept of Aseity



Different, yet still about Tolkien :

In the early 1960s, Donald A. Wollheim, science fiction editor of the paperback publisher Ace Books, realized that The Lord of the Rings was not protected in the United States under American copyright law because the US hardcover edition had been bound from pages printed in the UK for the British edition. Ace Books proceeded to publish an edition, unauthorized by Tolkien and without compensation to him. Tolkien made this plain to US fans who wrote to him. Grass-roots pressure became so great that Ace books withdrew their edition and made a nominal payment to Tolkien, well below what he might have been due in an appropriate publication. However, this poor beginning was overshadowed when an authorized edition followed from Ballantine Books to tremendous commercial success. By the mid-1960s the books, due to their wide exposure on the American public stage, had become a true cultural phenomenon. The Second Edition of the Lord of the Rings dates from this time — Tolkien undertook various textual revisions to produce a version of the book that would have a valid U.S. copyright.

The Sixty Symbols youtube channel was fun. I've been going through a lot of them and they're pretty good at getting the idea across.

You are referring to the channel with the "Scientists gets an unexpected question" video. I thought it was both funny and educational.

Astonishing : The results of a poll which games have been played from those which shipped together with the magazine Gamestar in 2009 : http://www.gamestar.de/community/gsp…d.php?t=380252
The astonishing point in this that almost no shooter games have high votes, but adventure games instead.
I'm still surprised. I had expected the direct opposite.

You should play the game
It's awesome. You really will be in awe of the game! It has all the elements people want in RPGs. It has stats, magic, special equipment and weapons. Two mortal enemies. It's really great !
