Robert Hegwood and Rilmorn
At the University of Southren Mississippi, I met a Robert Hegwood. Robert was a good guy and very smart and well read on many subjects. He joined my D&D game and played a psionicist named Brother Gellicost. One day, Robert presented me with a red folder; handwritten on the front was " A NOT BRIEF ENOUGH OVERVIEW OF XSHATHRAPAT, THE ISLAND Empire of the West." Inside was a 30+ page document describing the culture and history of Xshathrapat and its invasion of another unknown continent on Rilmorn. I didn't do anything with it for over 30 years. I am possessive of Rilmorn and if one my players creates in a manner antithetic to my asthetics, I get difficult. Robert treaded the line and I didn't give his work real license in Rilmorn until I needed a campaign setting for a failed D&D game for my wife, my daughter, and her boyfriend. After that, I began to work on a new continent (Iolta
) and Robert's invasion history and storyline worked well into the background I wanted for this setting. It has been thousands of years, since Xshathrapat and Allo-Dyskoria invaded Iolta, but there are still remnants of Xshathrapt o that continent. Here are two examples of Robert's Work:
What do you think of his work?
