I recently realized something about the shenanigans of published RPG articles, modules and supplements that throws off my various 3d6-in-order, etc. converters for Mutants and Death Ray Guns and Song of Blades and Heroes.

the Eye of Terror? I mean, this … looks a lot like this: I’m thinking temporal anomaly combined with dimension shift or parallel jump. A world without string!
