Hollow Earth Expedition

<< < (2/2)

Mcrow:
Oh, I just noticed I forgot to mention something in the review that I think is a nice mechanic.

The Take the Average rules are cool and speed up play. Basically if your total skill level, divided by two, is higher than the difficulty of the test then you automatically succeed @ the task.

Nothing new or revolutionary, but I like it. :)

Dominus Nox:
This reminded me of a somewhat funny related topic:

The last people to take the "Hollo earth" theory seriously, let alone search for it, were, believe it or not, the nazi elite. (STFU about godwin's funcking law, I'm siting historiucal fact here, not making comparisions!!!)

Apparently Hitler and/or Himmler actually believed the hollow earth theory to such a degree that in certain areas, like calculating long range trajectories, it was required to use mathmetacal 'fudge factors' to take into account the effects of a hollow earth, which certainly didn't help the Vs's accuracy, for example.

The nazis also sent expeditions to Anarctica to search for entrances to the 'inner world', believing that the proginitors of the "Aryan god-men" had withdrawn to it after the destruction of Atlantis.

Believe it or not, these are some of the things Hitler and his inner circle believed in.

I'm not dumping on the game, obviously. It sounds like a nice alternate reality game like "Space 1889".

The funny thing is that some people actually believed this was real. No wonder they lost the war....

Yeah, the Nazis were looking for all sort legendry artifacts and location during WWII. they had an entire section of the military that was devoted to such research. They also were looking for the holy grail.

I also think hitler had a real boner for the so-called "spear of destony", if you know what that is.
