There's been a wee bit of talk about doing up a retroclone of Tom Moldvay's crossgenre RPG Lords of Creation, though I'm not sure anyone has done any work on it. I'm not sure if there's actually an audience for such a thing. Quick show of hands: anybody reading this interested in playing LoC but can't find a copy cheap? Last time I checked reasonably priced boxed sets pop up on eBay fairly regularly.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that if such a project got off the ground then Princes of the Universe wouldn't be a terrible title for it.
Nowadays I laugh a little when Freddie says "bring on the girls!" When I was a kid I had no idea.
Anyway, I've been thinking about Lord of Creation the past few days because I've got the nugget of a campaign concept rolling around in my brain. Maybe I'll write more on that later.
