Wizards Community - The Dungeonomicon

"The Socialomicon: Heroes in the Greek Sense:
'Can I kill the baby kobolds?'

When people are asked to name a historical point that D&D most closely represents, they'll usually say something like 'The Middle Ages', or perhaps a date between 1000 AD and 1500 in Europe. Truth be told, to find a historical period which has a social setup anything like D&D, you're going to have to go back. Way back. D&D represents a period in history that is most closely identifiable with the Iron Age: the landscape is dotted with tribes and aspiring empires, the wilderness is largely unexplored, and powerful individuals and small groups can take over an area without having a big geopolitical hubbub about it.

The source material for the social setting of D&D is not Hans Christian Andersen, it's Homer's The Iliad and Caesar's The Gallic Wars. In the backdrop of early historical empire building, crimes that modern humans shake their heads at the barbarity of are common place – even among the heroes. D&D at its core is about breaking into other peoples' homes, possibly killing the residents, and taking their stuff home with you in a sack. And in the context of the period, that is acceptable behavior for a hero." (lots more) Wizards Community - The Dungeonomicon

The History of the Devil

You'll never get any respect with that fake plastic pitchfork, dude.

This massive work on the history of evil, particularly as symbolized by the Christian devil, was written on the cusp of the 20th century by Paul Carus, who wrote such other books as 'Buddha, the Gospel'.

At that point in history it seemed apparent that evil would soon be eliminated by the onrushing forces of rationalism and modernism. The devil had been reduced to a literary character, always ready to make a silly bargain for a soul. This trivialized image is perpetuated to this day. Satan in the cinema is either represented as a hideous special effect or a comic, bumbling trickster. Long gone is the noble adversary of Jehovah, as portrayed in the Bible, Milton or Dante.

However, the 20th century brought total war; genocide; death camps; nuclear, biological and chemical weapons; mind control; double-speak; ecological destruction; and finally indiscriminant mass terror. Evil was back and it was unmistakable. No wonder that opinion polls in the United States show that a large proportion of the population believe in the existence of the devil. (more)

God shall remain barred from dungeon - Turkish Daily News Jun 14, 2006

" Culture and Tourism Minister Atilla Koç said on Tuesday that a sign to the entrance of Bodrum Castle's dungeon stating Where God Does Not Exist in Latin would remain in place.

Newspapers on Tuesday criticized a Culture and Tourism Ministry decision to order the removal of what was thought to be a 500-year-old sign.

While notices pointing to the dungeon have already been removed, officials were wondering how they can remove the Latin words Inde deus abest, which are carved in stone.

Koç, speaking at a press conference, said investigations had revealed the sign had no archeological value, adding that a new commission would be sent to the castle this week to confirm those findings.

He also said the translation of the Inde Deus Abest was not correct, either, claiming that it actually means God is far from here." (more) God shall remain barred from dungeon - Turkish Daily News Jun 14, 2006

Origins of the @ Sign @ Alice Hill’s Real Tech News - Independent Tech

"Let’s go back to the 6th or 7th century. Latin scribes tried to save a little effort by shortening the Latin word ad (at, to, or toward) by stretching the upstroke of “d” and curving it over the “a”.

Italian researchers unearthed 14th-century documents, where the @ sign represented a measure of quantity. The symbol also appeared in a 15th-century Latin-Spanish dictionary, defined as a gauge of weight, and soon after—according to ancient letters—was referenced as an amphora, a standard-sized clay vessel used to carry wine and grain."

Special forces to use strap-on 'Batwings' | the Daily Mail

Heh hee.... Strap On.

"Elite special forces troops being dropped behind enemy lines on covert missions are to ditch their traditional parachutes in favour of strap-on stealth wings.

The lightweight carbon fibre mono-wings will allow them to jump from high altitudes and then glide 120 miles or more before landing - making them almost impossible to spot, as their aircraft can avoid flying anywhere near the target." (more)
