Gold, silver, ivory, apes, and terror birds
If you were hanging around these parts a year ago, you will have seen the long string of posts about Abraxas, the fantasy setting Jamie and I created and were planning to use for our MMO at Eidos in the late 1990s. Abraxas is a continent of prehistoric civilizations, aircars, vril-powered cannons, cosmic rings around the Earth, neanderthal barbarians, psionic magic, and hostile intruders from other stars. A Princess of Mars rather than Lord of the Rings, say. While digging through some old floppy disks, Jamie came across this image of the Vadem Causeway gate outside Tamo Anchan, as depicted by our concept artist Darren Horley. Would've been great to materialize there and go charging your character through the city in realtime 3D... Sigh.
