Author our mouth is and bought the lot. I am not disappointed. Read More »disagreed with our opinion on Three Hearts and Three Lions. We told our listeners to “punish him” by “buying his books – lots and lots of his books.” Now, we didn’t really think that he should be punished (or even scolded)… but we still think folks should check out his books. Of course, I put my money where

Holger Carlsen is an American-trained Danish engineer who joins the Danish Resistance to the Nazis. At the shore near Elsinore he is among the group of resistance fighters trying to cover the escape to Sweden of an important scientist (evidently, the nuclear physicist Niels Bohr). With a German force closing in, Carlsen is shot – and suddenly finds himself carried to a parallel universe, a world where Northern European legend concerning Charlemagne (“The Matter of France”) is real. This world is divided between the forces of Chaos inhabiting “Middle World” (which includes Faerie) and forces of Law based in the human world, which is in turn divided between the Holy Roman Empire and the Saracens. He finds the equipment and horse of a medieval knight waiting for him. The shield is emblazoned with three hearts and three lions.
Welcome to the Sanctum Secorum podcast. Tonight we discuss Poul Anderson’s seminal work Three Hearts and Three Lions as well as Terry Olson’s new adventure Escape from the Shrouded Fen. We like one of these far more than the other…can you guess which?
The DCC Lankhmar Kickstarter is now in its final hours and, while two stretch goals still remain (a Judge’s Screen and a cloth map), the stretch goal that serves up a true landmark for DCC Lankhmar has been achieved. Michael Curtis WILL be going to Texas to see what can be found in the collected personal papers of Fritz Leiber! Congratulations to Goodman Games and to Manly Michael Curtis on this achievement.
With 13 hours left, it isn’t too late for those last two goals to be hit.
As the DCC Lankhmar kickstarter moves into its final two days there is a VERY important stretch goal update that we want to be certain that everyone has seen.
Previously, the final stretch goal at $220k was to send Michael Curtis to the library at the University of Houston to research through the collected papers of Fritz Leiber. There was some stretch goal reshuffling and that particular stretch goal is now at $165k. With 42 hours left and only $26,500 to go, this goal is within striking distance! While ALL of the remaining stretch goals are fantastic (judges screen, NPC booklet, Lankhmar locations book, etc) this particular goal presents a unique opportunity to see game materials based on never-before accessed writings of Fritz Leiber.
If you have not yet pledged and are on the fence? Pledge now!
If you haven’t gotten the print pack (now with SIX modules), seriously consider it. Let’s get Mr. Curtis to Houston so that we can all benefit!
At the time of this posting, a mere 54 hours remain in the crowdfunding efforts for Reid San Filippo’s Umerican Surivival Guide, taking the Crawling Under a Broken Moon setting to the next level. The project is already funded and has passed several stretch goals with a few others in range to still realistically reach.
Less than $500 dollars separates backers from Killer of Giants an adventure by Glowburn host Forrest Aguirre, and less than $1500 for another expansion of the Twisted Menagerie Manual (more monsters is always better). Additionally, all backers have immediate access to a draft of the book for immediate use.

Lankhmar is a fictional city in the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories by Fritz Leiber. It is situated on the world of Nehwon, just west of the Great Salt Marsh and east of the River Hlal, and serves as the home of Leiber’s two antiheroes. It is richly described as a populous, labyrinthine city rife with corruption, decadent and squalid in roughly equal parts and said to be so shrouded by smog that the stars are rarely sighted.
Welcome to the Sanctum Secorum podcast. Tonight is our long awaited interview with Michael Curtis as we discuss the even more long awaited DCC Lankhmar kickstarter.
