  1. My name is Stephanie Voge and I am a volunteer for Nuke-Con, located in Omaha, NE. We are in our 21st year, with about 400 attendees per year, and we’re growing. Our convention is September 30th, October 1st and October 2nd. We’ve come to you to see if you would be interested in donating prize support or items for give-aways at the convention. We are happy to trade ad space in our onsite booklet as well as our post-convention booklet.

    Nuke-Con also supports a charity each year. This year we are working with Toys for Tots, and should you be interested to donate we would of course provide you with a tax deductible receipt for your donation.

    There is more information about the convention and about our organization at our website at http://www.nuke-con.com, or you may contact John Kelly at the addresses below.

  3. Hello Mr. Desbourough

    I’ve just wanted to tell you – for quite a while now – that I think you are producing some excellent stuff!! I mean, man, I fucking LOVE Blood. It scratches an itch that I didn’t know existed.

    Anyway, I know this probably doesn’t mean much, but thank you. I’m reading through ImagiNation right now and it is also wonderful. So flexible, I can’t even stand it.

    Take care and please continue to make things that will persuade me to give you money.

  5. Hi, just picked up the Gor RPG material and I have to say I’m impressed. I’m currently writing a D6 game myself (for Final Sword) and it can be a fun system.

    I do have a kind of basic question- one that might be answered if I went to the trouble of reading the entire saga again- How is an Earth person delivered to Gor? Does the silver ship just drop them off in the middle of nowhere or are they delivered straight to a slave merchant? It kind of pertains to a character backstory. I’m not sure where the character will end up, but I want to know where they start.



    • Hey Michael,
      The answer is ‘it depends’. In the books most people brought to Gor were brought for some specific purpose. If to be sold as slaves they were taken to out of the way meeting places and then distributed to various slave houses so as not to be as noticeable or suspicious. If for other reasons they were kept in bases and trained and educated as necessary. Typically though, yes, to a slave merchant.
