Film Inspirations

Sending out the last few Domain Game turn reports is taking up my game window today, so I leave you with some film inspirations from Nowhere. 

While excruciatingly paced at times, Malick's The New World evokes some of the mood--minus the strange and fantastical elements--for me of what this world would look and feel like through the eyes of the player-led expeditions. The selections on You Tube don't do justice to the feel of the movie, but here's a decent collection (best perhaps with the annotations on the bottom right turned off and the full screen on.) Yeah, yeah roll the clip...

And of course, where would we be without the lonely, crazed angst of Herzog's Aguirre, Wrath of God.

And lest you think I have neglected Swords& Sorcery, there might be a smidgen or two of Fire and Ice in there too...


  1. Black Robe is another great film showing the potential horror and mystical nature of the frontier.
