The second sounds to have been inspired, at least a little, by Julie d’Aubigny, aka La Maupin. She was, by parts, an opera singer, a countess, a duellist.... There is a story of her taking a fancy to a woman she saw at a party and kissing her, passionately, in front of the woman's three male suitors. Those men, all three, challenged her to a duel in somewhat the fashion of The Three Musketeers and d'Artagnan. She defeated all three.I finished reading "The Sisterhood of the Blade". It is an anthology of stories set in 3-musketeeof the era, but all the main characters are women, who serve as the Queen's guards. It is written by a number of different authors (Ed Greenwood being the most famous).
The first of the character is a samurai who had married a Frenchman, and moved to France. He was a spy for the king, but got murdered on a mission. The second is the daughter of a general. She is very good at swordfighting, and likes to drink, fight, and have lots of sexual relations. The third is a dark skinned female pirate, fluent in a number of languages. She too likes to drink, and fight and have sex (with both men and women). All sex is off-screen, and only referred to in off-hand comments.
It is an interesting idea, but the stories are a bit uneven, and would have benefitted from more editing given that some of them have contradictionary descriptions of the characters, and the language/style varies a lot. The three women have frequent fights with the Cardinal's guards. If you like swashbuckling, it is an interesting read.
A book that is for instructors in archery. Since it is for the international market it's focus is on recurve (olympic) archery.
The expansion book for Good Society - A Jane Austen rpg. I do intend to run a one-shot for it with my gaming group)
Also doing proofreading on stuff for a number of Swedish RPG's.
- A campaign for Kopparhavets Hjältar
- Adventures for Chock åter från graven (Inspired by Chill 1e which was called "Chock" in Swedish. The title translates as "Chock back from the Grave", which is fitting since it has been out of print since the late 80's. Uses a different rule-system)
- Going though the main rulebook for Chock åter från Graven, as they are thinking about doing a 2nd printing, and they felt that the proofreading on the first edition was lacking in quality.
- Adventures for Kutulu. A Swedish Cthulhuesque game with allegedly simpler rules. Have one adventure left out of 4 written by Gabrielle de Bourg, who is one of the more frequent scenario-writers in Sweden, and have written for games like Vaesen, Tales from the Loop, Call of Cthulhu Sverige, and also a scenario for The Troubleshooters which was one of the stretchgoals for that kickstarter campaign.
