I know when people think Gygax or D & D they think of the Role Playing Game, but I always think of the cartoon. I was always a GURPS kinda guy.
I used to watch this cartoon religiously every Saturday. I loved it and could recall whole episodes, but why? I remembered the music and BGs being kinda of creepy, but it feel like that was quite it, so I watched an episode to find out why it made such a big impression on me. I was super surprised by how depressing it was! (go to 03:57) Those poor kids were pulled from their world. Sure they got cool weapons, but their whole lives were just chasing this "portal" home and dealing with a little dwarf who wouldn't tell them which way to go home but give them riddles!
Maybe that's why it made such a big impression...
Here's a close up:
I was thinking about doing another cut out piece, but I really felt like spending more time on painting and less on woodworking.
Well, that's the last piece for now! Fwew!
