Lemurian RPG

Well I have been studying Simon Washbourne's BoL came, even bought the Mystic Edition and that is after purchasing the Legendary Edition, which I only glanced at.

But the main reason is Simon could not get the licence to Carter's Lemuria. So, his game is based on a revised concept of Lemuria based on Carter's work, but not Carter's Lemuria!

So, I Started a revised version:

Lemurian Personalities

Reading through the various novels which I now have; I have spent about 6 weeks rereading and rereading again till I think I have got as much as I can from the novels.

This is a PDF which expands Simon's Lemurian Personalities Chapter in his BoL 2nd Edition free copy of BoL.

I've never read Thongor. I have read a couple of the World's End books and found them a little self mocking. Would you recommend Thongor?

The Thongor books are questionable, I first read "Thongor and the Wizard of Lemuria," when I was about 12-13 and I was put off by airboats and dinosaurs that reach 200 feet long and that is on land and returned to my Conan novels. For example the Blue Whale is only 100 foot long and only because it is in the sea; so my first reaction the Thongor is naff and that was at that early age.

But, that is what makes it so good; it's stories can be a little gung-ho as Thongor throws himself at 200 foot long Larth sea-monster; but it is fun and it can generate a smile if not a "What the ...!!!"

Plus once you read the unreal; and I think after the first read and reread it, it is actually a very interesting story, landscape, cultural structure, etc. And with some interesting creatures and magical exploits if not mixed with science, i.e. "lighting Guns and skybelt (which allow for anti-gravity jumping).

So, yes I give it a 7 out of 100 no I meant 10, pushing an 8... :)
