From the smoking ruins of The Silent Sorcerer's tower, Skullsword sends forth nonsensical artwork and useless gaming tools. He also likes to discuss RPGs, boardgames, miniatures painting, writing, movies, books, and whatever else strikes his fancy. Mostly though, his goal is to provide fun and goofy things to inspire others in their games. Enjoy!

More Conan the Barbarian (1982) Trivia
Last night while I was straightening out my games shelf, I had the first episode of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys running on Netflix. At 11 minutes and 01 second in (33 minutes and 22 seconds left), this shot appeared as the exterior of a tavern where Iolaus is arguing with a villager who came to seek the help of Hercules.

There was something very familiar about that exterior, and I paused the show and stared at the screen for a few moments. Then it hit me. I loaded up Conan the Barbarian (1982) to confirm, and sure enough it was the exterior of the witch's hut!

I think it's kind of cool that they slipped something like that in there, since Hercules: The Legendary Journeys really was more sword & sorcery than Greek mythology. Less interesting then Conan's father's sword, but still neat.
