I like these fantasy analogies of real-world cultures in my D&D settings. They make it easier to directly steal from real-world myth and legend and are immediately recognisable to players, who can safely assume a number of obvious things without the DM needing to use up time to explain how the locals dress or that slave labour is common. Also, you need to have that fantasy Egypt to place the Desert of Desolation series in.
However, could be please quit it with the mummy porn stars? I have a high tolerance for cheesecake in my fantasy art, but that’s… just… GAH!
But hey, at least we got this incredibly shoddy Flash animation with a horribly bad metal riff on the background assaulting our senses when we enter the D&D homepage.
Also, we got the character generation guidelines for RPGA campaigns, except without the campaign-specific appendices. Not much in there, yet, though I note that amount of reward cards a character may use has been increased. Personally, I’d rather just see the whole concept scrapped.
They do make fine bookmarks for gaming books, though. Big and sturdy.
