Weird lands and forgotten islands » What Setting Would You Like to See? » 3/18/2014 6:20 am

Here's half a dozen to start:

Barbarians of Hyperborea, using the Clark Ashton Smith setting.

Barbarians of Zothique, using the Clark Ashton Smith setting.

Barbarians of Carpathia, if that ever sees the light of day.

Barbarians of the Dark Ages, using the historical period of about 500 AD to about 1000 AD, but flavored for sword-and-sorcery along the lines of Howard's Cormac Mac Art and Turlogh O'Brien stories.

Barbarians of the Dreamlands, gonzo adventures in the Lovecraft setting.

Barbarians of the New World, fightng witches, pirates, Shonokins, and Indians in Colonial America.

The rules for Blade of the Iron Throne are derived from Riddle of Steel.  Blade is available as a pdf download from RPGNow or DriveThru RPG.  I don't believe there is a print version yet.

World of Xoth has also shown up recently as the default setting for the Blade of the Iron Throne RPG.

Another new member shambles forward.  I was a lurker on the old site, but have actually followed Simon's games since the Thongor version of BOL and his great Captain Kronos vampire hunter game.

Also, Robert Bloch ties the Mythos to Ancient Egypt in several tales.  The dark cult of Nyarlathotep arises many times across the centuries, and it seems that Anubis, Bubastis, Sebek, and Set are linked to the Crawling Chaos as well.

An interesting campaign might be set during the brief and troubling reign of Nephren-Ka, the Black Pharaoh.  During this time, Nyarlathotep was worshipped openly, and grotesque human-animal hybrids stalked the land.  The Chaosium books have placed Nephren-Ka's reign at the end of the Old Dynasty, but I believe this is a serious misreading of Bloch's "Fane of the Black Pharoah," and Nephren-Ka  should be dated to the mid-Seventh Century B.C. instead.
