Live from Origins 2003: we can make a game out of anything, even pickles

Couple of quick D20 bits:

OtherWorld Creations has Mercenaries: Born of Blood (I think that’s the title) new at the show; it includes rules for making a mercenary out of virtually any creature in the Monster Manual. I’m thinking shambling mound.

Mystic Eye has a new Foul Locales book, Behind the Gates, about rural villages and hamlets and stuff. If there ain’t no Starbucks, it’s a foul locale indeed. They also have Tarot Magic, an intriguing idea if you ask me; they have stuff like prestige classes for tarot mages and all the surrounding bits for a magic system. Whether they have rules that actually require use of a tarot deck, I didn’t ask. No stats for the major arcana.
