    Post Byzantium Novum Militarium......

    BNM is a blog by Jim Matthews found at http://byzantiumnovummilitarium.blog...max-results=20 Covering the military history of the Byzantine Empire, the blog has an amazing array of Mr. Matthews' drawings that show fortifications, structures, and devices that were used by the Empire. While many of the maps and drawings are not immediately usuable in a game, the blog offers a wide array of inspiration for designing ships, fortifications, and other structures.

    Good stuff, I've always liked the old Hellenistic motif for a setting.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

    gotta show this to my father in law, he's an expert on Byzans. He had an Byzans exibit half a year ago and recently wrote a 400+ page illustrated book about it.

    Excellent site. But shouldn't the title be in Greek rather than Latin?
