These are some of the books, movies, games, and other media that inspire me in writing this campaign.


Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell – I am still reading this, but I really like the in depth description of the history of magic.

The Black Company – This is a fantasy series written by Glen Cook about a mercenary company. I am not a fan of Mr. Cook’s writing but one of his stories gave me the idea of having the party become a mercenary company.

Movies & TV:

The Dungeons and Dragons Cartoon Show – I loved the zaniness and high-fantasy of this old show.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail – This is required viewing for any Hackmaster player.


1st edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons – I like the kitchen sink fantasy approach that this game had.

Tunnels and Trolls – This is another kitchen sink type fantasy game system. Probably one of the only games where you can play a leprechaun.
