    I’m working on Hell by Starlight, honest 🙂

    It’s the nature of the rules, because so many people use the rules on comparatively small screens or on Kindle, I have to be careful about tables. What works in print, or on a pdf you see on a big tablet, doesn’t work well on a kindle or on a phone

    Given that when the rules were written the phones were had big dials and were fixed to the wall, I confess it isn’t a problem I considered when writing them

    You tease…. 😂

    I am sure they will be a success as Hellfire. I do get what you mean regarding tables and devices.

    Phones fixed to the wall with big dials. Now that takes me back!
    Keep up the good work Jim.

    Sadly, my basement archeological diggings never unearthed Hell by Starlight.   Exposed Hellfire and Mersey’s Glutter of Ravens, but for some reason I never bought HbS.

    So I’m eagerly looking forward to Jim’s promised project!

    (As an aside, I clearly remember when we were cleaning out my father-in-law’s basement a few years back and came across an old rotary phone.  The puzzled/amazed/confused expression on my (at the time) teenaged son’s face was priceless as he struggled to figure out what the device was).

    As somebody who will go off to places not carrying my phone (which because of our poor signal acts more as a watch and a camera and is pay as you go so doesn’t do data) over 98% of my phone calls still take place on the landline. But we don’t alas, have a rotary phone

    Some years ago my daughter acquired one of those phones where the mouthpiece is fixed to the wall and the ear piece is a separate thing you hold to your ear and you had to wind a handle to produce the electricity to call the exchange
    She discovered there is a company which produces a small electronics package you fit into them and it means you can use them with a modern landline 🙂

    Please share that link. That sounds like my perfect phone.

    Afraid I never had the link, it was about ten years ago she mentioned it, I don’t know if she ever followed up on it as she divorced etc not long after
