I light of the U.N.’s recent recognition of the state of Palestine (sort of), here’s a short video on the region’s history:
My friend, Kelly, just sent me this link: My Journey to Chernobyl: 20 Years After the Disaster. I haven’t read through it yet, but that’s how much I trust him: I just post the link on my blog. It could be filled with scat porn, for all I know.
Well, that’s not entirely true. I did briefly check out the link first.
You can’t be too careful with Kelly.
Anyway, it sounds like an awesome experience. I’d love to explore any ruins, ancient or otherwise. Maybe some day, after I’ve developed an immunity to radiological contaminants. Well, to be honest, I’d gladly explore Chernobyl, radiation hazards or not.
Hmmm…I just thought of an interesting RPG setting: a post-apocalyptic world where civilization has re-established itself in the typical fantasy-medieval level of technology, but where the monsters are not just mythical creatures, but are, rather, actually mutations or genetic experiments from ancient times. Yes, this idea could use some fleshing out. In fact, it will merge seamlessly with the current RPG setting that has been percolating in the back of my mind for the past year.
Now, if only I could get off my butt and start getting these ideas on paper.
