As far back as the first Dungeon Master's Guide list os inspirational literature have always been part of the gaming experience. Settings, supplements, and advantures all have been known to include them over the years.
Since Suzerain brings together a multiplicity of genres I got to wondering what other Suzerain GMs were inspired by.
In order to get the ball rolling I'll go first.
- The Eternal Champion Cycle by Michael Moorcok
- The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazney
- The works of Rudy Rucker
- The Doomfarer's of Coramonde by Brian Daley
- Dune and it's sequels, only the frank Herbert ones
- Sandman (DC Comics)
- Crisis on Infinite Earths (DC Comics)
- Weave World by Clive Barker
- The Borderland Series edited by Terri Windling
- A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller, Jr.
- Almost everything released by Weird Tales
- Heavy Metal Magazine
What about you? What is it that you draw thoughts, ideas, or tone from? Terry Brooks, Tolkien, Douglas Adams? (I'll admit part of why I'm asking is that I am always on the lookout for a new book!)
Let us know!
