King Arthur is alive and tending bar in New York.

The Three Wise Men are searching the Nevada desert for a boy named Jesse.

Hercules is a construction worker from Detroit.

Everyone has a story. Some are just more interesting than others.

That's why they keep getting retold.

And here I thought your next game would shy away from controversy.

Sounds great.

Cool can add that to the short list of games I am buying.  

Currently it consists of:

Living Legends
2nd (thats just looks so damn good)
the next Little Fears book, file, whatever you put out
Kult: Beyond the Veil
and Mak Attack sourcebook for UA.

Thats about it.  You currently hold three of the five slots of things I am going to buy.  Congrats.

Now if I can just get the time to run something.

Sounds very interesting, will it use similar dice mechanics
as with your earlier game?

Someone should tell them that they're too far north and east.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Well I hope nothing bad comes from the name since last I heard that was what Jeff Dee's reiteration of V&V was going to be called.

V&V for some reason that calls to mind Voltswagons and vagabonds.  Anywho yes the game dose look very cool and is on the list of things to do instead of buying food.

So, how's this coming along?

And again, because it's an oldie but a goodie: what do the people do? Any specific reason these old legends are hanging around?

It's coming along quite well, actually. I'll probably push back the release date (surprise!) but only to make it that much cooler. It's not that the old legends are hanging around, but that various people embody the legends and their lives tend to mirror the legend's.

RE: Dice Mechanic

Damn, I totally missed this question. No, it does not use the LF system. It has its own pretty sweet mechanic.

Hola!  A few quick questions about Liveing Legends.  Unfortunatly most of them have to do with money :-( I know sorry to bother you about such boring stuff but I want to make sure I have enough so that I can snatch up a copy as soon as it is available.  So I'll need to know how much it will be costing...ballpark estimate mind you.  The way I manage money is I write down on the 20 dollar bill what I'm going to spend it all and tack it to the wall.  Right now I just need to know how much needs to go under the Key20 tack that's all.

Also you mentioned the release date might be pushed back a bit.  Any news on this?  This also effects the money under the tak because I will possibly be getting more between now and then and I don't want to loose my head with this years spending orgy.  Thanks for oyur time and your hard work, we are all looking forwards to liveing legends amongst my group of freinds.

Wow, I really don't know about the price. The PDF release will probably be in April but I really don't know what the final price will be.

Sorry. ;(

No worries then, if it is in april that is right around my birthday so it is a moot point as I will already have my money supply recharged then.  All is well.  Good now I have enough money to see Adaptaion twice.
