This is utterly cool, and collecting all the threads is even nicer.

You want a hardcopy of MMS:WE? Send me your address in an e-mail and I'll ship you one.

Consider it a thank you for this excellent service.

We'll be there in booth 1237 (practically neighbors with Mystic Eye). If you want to wait till then I'll be glad to give you a signed copy. Hell, since we didn't put our names on it (except for the section 15) it's almost the only way you can know who wrote it.
:D

Wonderful! I had to subscribe to this one, because I didn't really have time to look through the links Monday, but here I am, a dollar late and a day wiser ;)

The http://www.hyw.com/Books/History/xxx site is beautiful. A lot of juicy tidbits for those of us that like to have history happen around the PCs (development of new war methods, installation of new political systems), and some cool stuff that seems handcrafted for worldbuilding :D. I particularly liked the pay scales for soldiers link.

The chinese polearms was kind of "eh", but then... then! I saw the picture at the bottom left of the page. How did you know that I was running a campaign in an alternate magical steampunk history, circa 1890-1901? How did you know!? I've told no one, or so I thought, save the players, who are currently in Malcester, England, getting involved with a covey of vampires.

That picture, with some judicious narrowing and editting, is going to become a possible Handout Clue, and a whole new vampire is going to be introduced for no better reason than I have a cool ass clue to provide about him :).

I am going to introduce Khipu/Quipu to my world now!

As an interesting note there is a Polynesian legend which tells of a Mother searching for her son who sent out a message using a knotted string which apparently contained the message "Where are you?" and "how are you?" he replied in kind with the answers

Polynesians had contact with South America so maybe they were using Khipu too!
