French group

>The new group appears to be all in French. Is that the intent?

It's because the link to it has a tag in it specifying French. Follow this 
link:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en-GB#!forum/minotaurians
for a proper* English version.

*Meaning "British". I'm not helping you make it "American English". :P

Shield wall!

Google Groups URL

This should solve the "language barrier" problem:

https://groups.google.com/d/forum/minotaurians

I had selected "US English" as the main language for the group, but when I cut-pasted the URL link, it apparently included a ".fr" thingie in it...

WE MOVE OUT

Hello fellow Minotaurians

So, following our latest poll, it appears that the vast majority of our members are in favor of leaving this wretched Yahoo newsgroup (it's probably no coincidence that almost no message has been posted since the completely unwanted "makeover") for a new haven on the web. It can be found here:

https://groups.google.com/ forum/?hl=fr#!forum/ minotaurians

T he M&M newsgroup is dead - long live the M&M newsgroup !  Shield wall !

 

(PS : I've posted this Under a new identity because my old Yahoo ID has somehiow become "unbouncable" - just another inane Yahoo shenanigan - the final one, as far as I'm concerned)

Interesting font resources

http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/

Am I the only one seeing fonts useful for M&M games in there?  ;)

Fate and Doom

I was thingking much about the Fate/Doom mechanics presented in the Minotaur; I liked the idea but not the actual rules. On my blog, I recently wrote about it and offered two alternate approaches.

Planning the next issue

Hello everybody!  With issue 11 in orbit, it's time to start preparing for issue 12. I'd like to be a "urban adventuring" themed special issue, focusing on the (in)famous City of Kandaria. I already have a complete Gazetteer for the city, written by our (absent) friend Andrew Pearce some time ago, but I'd like to expand / develop this material with new ideas and (ideally) one or two adventures... so if anyone is interested on working on Mythika's iconic "city of thieves", they should contact me at the usual e-mail address (see the M&M website etc.)... rather than through this newsgroup (which gives me a new reason to pester almost every day - I've just discovered that my e-mail address was "boucing"... and, of course, I cannot unbo unce it :) speaking of this, don't forget to vote about our big migration (see Polls). Shield wall and all that...

Issue 11 announcement



Hello. I've written the following announcement (in the usual bombastic LGS manner) to post on various forum and RPG sites. Please tell me if you see any weird turn of phrase etc.

The MINOTAUR is back!

 

Greetings, mortals! 

 

 Legendary Games Studios proudly presents the eleventh issue of the Minotaur, the official (and free) webzine of the Mazes & Minotaurs roleplaying game. Yes, just when you thought the Minotaur was forever lost in the pits of Tarterus, the beast is back, with 75+ pages of 100% free M&M goodness!

 

In this new issue, you will find:

 

- Tons of new information and lore about the fantasy world of Mythika, the official setting of M&M, including a complete gazetteer of the island of Seriphos, the cradle of Minean civilization, as well as fascinating studies of the history, legends and languages of Mythika

 

- Two complete adventures, “The Megara of Demeter” and “The House of the Artificer”

 

- A new character class, the Archaeologist, and (at long last!) rules for playing Satyrs in M&M!

 

- New mythic items and creatures

 

- Revised and expanded versions of the famous M&M Mysterious Islands tables

 

- And, of course, the Play Nymph!

 

All this free M&M stuff is waiting for you at the Minotaur webpage – just “right click and save as…” to download your free PDF of the Minotaur N°11 (or any of the ten previous issues, for that matter).

 

Long live Mazes & Minotaurs!

New MINOTAUR issue



I've just finished the layout of the MINOTAUR N°11. I will make the official announcement in a few days - but you, my dear fellow Minotaurians, can already download it from the link below:

http://mazesandminotaurs.free.fr/MQ11.pdf

On a completely unrelated note, I'm sorry if some "pending messages" awaited approval for a bit too long - I hadn't noticed them before today, because of the f***ing new presentation of the newsgroup. I really hope we'll be able to get back to the old mode... but as far as I've understood, there is no certainty of this and, apparently, there is nothing we can do about it. The only answers I got from Yahoo were ridiculous robot-sent "updates" rather than simple answers to a simple question... that's the "web 2.0" for you.

Anyway, shield wall to everyone!
