Frickin' Fomalhaut Online!
If you're not familiar with Fomalhaut, then you're proabably not getting your Fight On! or Knockspell magazines. Gabor (aka Melan)'s stuff is the first thing I flip to when I get one of those mags, and re-read multiple times.
For the unfamiliar, Fomalhaut is a world of science-fantasy, not unlike a Wilderlands meets the Dying Earth meets Cthulhu combo, though that would be simplifying things alot. Mankind came to Fomalhaut long ago from the stars, used their technology to make it habitable, and then there was a big interstellar war and Fomalhaut got forgotten and things descended into a dark age and got... weird. The main campaign map and setting description are in Fight On! #3, btw. Its on my extremely short list of "campaign settings I'd like to run a game in if I ever get sick of Wilderlands" (2 whole settings, Fomalhaut and Sword & Sorcery Greyhawk). If you ever imagined shooting your crossbow at a Cthulhoid nighmare rising from a sunken island temple from the deck of your hovercraft, this the setting for you.
Anyway, you can now check out some Fomalhaut stuff online in English, so don't miss it. (Tip: "Tovabb" means "more" or "rest of the article" or something like that, I think, so click on that whenever you see it or you'll miss alot of each article).
