    Interesting to see that Touchstones are making a reappearance. I don't mind them as much as others seem to, though. I have a feeling I'm going to have to pick this up, though, as I loved Frostburn and I'm a sucker for even slightly Egyptian stuff.
    I swear, WotC must have a spy camera implanted in my forehead. Every time I come up with an idea, they're always one step ahead in terms of getting it published. d20 is nearly identical to a d12 system I was working on before I hooked up with KenzerCo. And lots of stuff in Sandstorm looks like what I had started for the rules section of the Sands of the Khydoban campaign option. I constantly have this problem with lots of other books too.

    Where's the camera??????????????

    Eh, doesn't excite me, but neither did the previews for Frostburn and I ended up liking that book. Hopefully the same happens here.

    I don't think you've fully explored the possibilities in having your very own War Camel!



    (Yeah, I don't know what they are, either).

    Cheers!

    I can just imagine that Paladin.

    "Go, camel! ... Go, mighty steed! G-- hello? Stop chewing that. Go already. Man, full plate in a desert is like an oven."

    Now that'd be candid.

    Although I have a fondness for pharonic and Arabian themed material, I have to agree that it'd be a shame if that dominates, especially as, if you want to grab real world cultures, the American Southwest is full of interesting material that really hasn't been used much in D&D, although the painted elves are likely a nod in that direction.

    I'm not sure how a paladin can have a war camel mount, as any one who's ever ridden a camel knows, they're fiendish creatures.
