Where can I pre-order this?!
Several months ago I heard @jasoncordova talking about Masters of the Universe as a formative sword & sorcery inspiration (possibly in relation to Storm Riders in Codex) and I had kind of forgotten how into it I was as a kid.
This prompted me to start watching some old episodes of MotU/She-Ra and to listen to The Wizard’s Nightshirt
I recently got some production drawings and cels and I love them!
I was probably talking about the LotFP Carcosa, which I consider to be a serious, non-toy commercial version of MotU.
That’s what it was!
It totally flicked a switch for me and made me want to explore that stuff again.
Eternia truly is a hostile environment full of swamps, tar pits and ravines populated by wolfbats.
When I was a kid, I thought He-Man was was too childish for my refined 10 year old sensibilities. I prefered Thundarr the Barbarian, which I have seen as much more cool and mature (it really wasn’t). I like that it was set in post-apocalyptic earth. I still hope to run some science-fantasy vaguely based on it.
I always thought it was a cheap He-Man knock-off, but It actually pre-dated He-Man. Now I feel like a hpister.
Thanks for bringing back memories @cosmicwimp, love the art!
