Great News, Sad News - The Weekly Update - September 30th, 2018

From the 'Lost Minis' wiki, which you should look at...

This will be a series of very short takes; I've had  a very long week.

First, the sad news: Duke Siegfried passed away yesterday. He's one of those people I grew up with in the gaming hobby, and he'll be missed. A lot.

Second, the great news:

(1) Dr. Amina Inloes, of the Islamic College in London, as had her paper on Prof. Barker, Tekumel, and Islam published. I will provide a link as soon as I can get one.

(2) The folks at Ral Partha are having a Kickstarter to get more vintage miniatures back into production. See the news at www.ralpartha.com

(3) Dr, Mike Burns at Dark Fable Miniatures (see link to the right) is having a sale on selected set after his latest Kickstarter funded quite successfully. The Missus backed this, as she usually does, and we'll soon have new figures on the way.

(4) There's a major audio documentary about Prof. Barker and Tekumel in the works, being done with the cooperation of Michael Mornard - better known as Kerdu Mnashu Korunme hi Chaishyani, Mnashu of Thri'il. More on this as I get it, of course...

In other news, we're in the midst of getting the house ready for winter; I hauled the air conditioners in today, and got a lot of other heavy lifting done throughout this past week. I think the results will be worth it, especially for the gaming groups, but I'm pretty tired out.

Lots more to come!!!
