HackMaster

HackMaster is a fantasy role-playing game produced by Kenzer & Company. It began as a fictional game, a parody of Dungeons & Dragons played by the characters of the Knights of the Dinner Table comic strip by Jolly R. Blackburn; the characters in the comic began playing fictional HackMaster 3rd Edition, updated and published in 2001 as a numerously revised 4th edition. It has been hinted the name of the game was changed for copyright reasons; the current 5th edition has removed most of the parody aspects, contains game mechanics written from scratch in order to avoid any intellectual property problems. Kenzer & Company received many requests from fans of the comic to produce an actual HackMaster game, but they thought that licensing Dungeons & Dragons would be impossible. In 1999 the Dragon Magazine Archive software was published where Wizards of the Coast failed to get permission to reprint many of the original articles such as the Knights of the Dinner Table comic in the electronic media archive.

A lawsuit was filed and settled out of court, they reached an agreement about creating a derivative work, that led to K&C's publication of HackMaster 4th Edition in 2001. As a nod to the fictional version from the comic, this first edition of Hackmaster was published as the 4th Edition. Since its release in 2001, HackMaster has evolved into a full-fledged role-playing game, spawning over forty add-ons and game aids. Most notable products include a 32-panel gamemaster's shield, a 16-page character sheet and a 10-volume monster encyclopedia; the Hacklopedia of Beasts, the Hackmaster version of the Monster Manual, was next released as eight separate volumes. These books were somewhat optional as creature statistics from the 1st and 2nd edition versions of AD&D were compatible with Hackmaster. K&C released the Hackmaster Field Manual, which contained the more popular Hackmaster creatures in a single volume. Whereas Wizards of the Coast overhauled the rules for 3rd edition Dungeons & Dragons, Kenzer & Company took the opposite action by revising the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First and Second Edition rules into a more coherent system and adding an element of parody.

In part of that ability to use AD&D rules, K&C was required to maintain a higher level of humor than in the Knights of the Dinner Table comic for products that are revised from previous AD&D material. Original works for Hackmaster are not subject to this restriction imposed by Wizards of the Coast. In 2002, HackMaster won the Origins Award for Game of the Year 2001; the first rulebook for the new edition, HackMaster Basic, was sent out to preorderers on June 19, 2009. HackMaster Basic was created due to Kenzer's licensing for AD&D running out; the title is a nod to the Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set, although HackMaster Basic was re-written so as to not contain any copyrighted material from Wizard of the Coast. The game includes an official player's handbook, an alternate campaign setting changed from Garweeze Wurld to Kingdoms of Kalamar, a comprehensive, one-volume bestiary called the Hacklopedia of Beasts, a GM's guide. Provided are a pantheon of gods and attendant rituals and spells for the cleric class to choose from.

Some of the game rule changes include a count-up system, as opposed to a "combat round" type of in-game time-keeping method. Players plan their actions second-by-second, with no down time between actions. Player characters in combat defend as well as attack and various combat maneuvers are offered to create a more realistic feel to the hostile encounter; the magic system has been overhauled to use spell points rather than a fixed number of spells. Clerics are specific to the various deities within the pantheon. In 4th edition, the official setting of Hackmaster was Garweeze Wurld, a giant continent on the planet Aldrazar based on the notes of Jolly Blackburn; this has been developed in Garweeze Wurld Gazeteer. Garweeze Wurld is about eight thousand miles across, circling much of the northern hemisphere of its planet; the continent is mapped based on each one thousand miles across. The continent reaches from the tropical band of Aldrazar to its Arctic Circle; the name Garweeze Wurld was a play on the name of the fictional creator of Hackmaster in Knights of the Dinner Table, Gary Jackson, himself a parody of both D&D creator Gary Gygax and Steve Jackson of Steve Jackson Games.

In the 5th edition of the game, the setting has been switched to Kenzerco's "Kingdoms of Kalamar" setting. KoK was developed as a D&D setting, has been detailed in several supplements and adventures. Developers for Kenzerco have stated on their forums that the world will not be altered for HM 5th; the following premade adventures were published for both 5th edition of the game. Most of the 4th edition adventures are alteration of the TSR era D&D modules. Official HackMaster site Official Hackmaster Association site

Elacatinus

Elacatinus is a genus of small marine gobies known collectively as the neon gobies. Although only one species, E. oceanops, is technically the "neon goby," because of their similar appearance, other members of the genus are labeled neon gobies, as well. Except for a single East Pacific species, all reside in warmer parts of the West Atlantic, including the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, they are known for engaging in symbiosis with other marine creatures by providing them cleaning service that consists of getting rid of ectoparasites on their bodies. In return, Elacatinus species obtain their primary source of ectoparasites. 24 recognized species are placed in this genus: Elacatinus atronasus J. E. Böhlke & C. R. Robins, 1968 Elacatinus cayman Victor, 2014 Elacatinus centralis Victor, 2014 Elacatinus chancei Beebe & Hollister, 1933 Elacatinus colini J. E. Randall & Lobel, 2009 Elacatinus evelynae J. E.

Colin, 2009 Elacatinus lori P. L. Colin, 2002 Elacatinus louisae J. E. Böhlke & C. R. Robins, 1968 Elacatinus oceanops D. S. Jordan, 1904 Elacatinus phthirophagus I.

Robins, 1968 Elacatinus puncticulatus Ginsburg, 1938 Elacatinus randalli J. E. Böhlke & C. R. Robins, 1968 Elacatinus redimiculus M. S. Taylor & Akins, 2007 Elacatinus serranilla J. E. Randall & P. L. Colin, 2009 Elacatinus tenox J. E. Böhlke & C. R. Robins, 1968 Elacatinus xanthiprora J. E. Böhlke & C. R. Robins, 1968 Neon gobies are small, torpedo-shaped fish. Although sizes vary by species, they are about 2.5 cm long. They have dark bodies with iridescent stripes running from the tip of the nose to the base of the caudal fin; the color of the stripes varies by species. Like all gobies, their dorsal fin is split in two, the anterior dorsal fin being rounded like that of a clownfish and the posterior dorsal fin being flat; the anal is of similar shape. The pectoral fins are nearly circular, like all other fins, transparent. Except for the East Pacific E. puncticulatus, all gobies of the genus Elacatinus reside in warmer parts of the western Atlantic, ranging from Florida and Bermuda, through the Bahamas and Gulf of Mexico to the coasts of Central America and northern South America.

Among the species is E. oceanops that resides in the Caribbean Sea, the Florida Keys and the Bahama Islands. They have been found along the northern Yucatan Peninsula. Elacatinus are carnivorous, with their primary diet consisting of ectoparasites on skins, fins and gill chambers of their clients. Depending on their ecological circumstances, they may feed on zooplankton and non-parasitic copepods. Although they are carnivorous, Elacatinus consume algae and other plants as secondary food source; some species of gobies exhibit gonochorism and protogynous hermaphroditism, including bidirectional sex reversal. Protogyny refers to a category of hermaphroditism where female organs develop or mature before the appearance of male product. In most males of Tellostei gobbidae, this characteristic is observed. Among those in the genus Elacatinus, protogyny is observed in E. illecebrosus. Protogynous hermaphroditism in gobies consists of a male reproductive system with paired, accessory gonadal structures associated with the testis.

While the AGS is universally present in male gobies, protogynous females need to develop AGSs for sex reversal to take place. The AGSs develop from precursive tissues, in the form of bilateral, ventrally localized cell masses, located close to the junction of the ovarian lobes and the oviduct. At the time of sex change, it diverts to form the AGSs; when pAGSs develop into AGSs, ovigerous tissue is completely replaced by seminiferous lobules. However, the ovarian lumen remains after the sex change, functioning as a common spermatozoa collection region, continuous with the common genital sinus as free spermatozoa travels from seminiferous lobules into the gonadal lumen. Gonochorism refers to evolution of sex. Gonochoric goby species do not possess pAGSs, but pAGSs are observed in E. illecebrosus and E. evelynae. The ovarian lobes of small-sized juvenile females of these species possess distinctive pAGSs that started to diminish and disappeared as they approach adulthood. Gobies are multiply spawning species spawning from February to April.

After spawning, male gobies guard and oxygenate eggs by frequent movement of their pectoral and caudal fins. However, after hatching, the larvae receive no parental protection. Around 30 days after hatching, the larvae begin metamorphosis into juvenile gobies. Elacatinus species maintain social monogamy, a system in which heterosexual pairs remain associated during both reproductive and nonreproductive periods. Males and females of Elacatinus forage together, occupying a single cleaning station and servicing client fish in pairs; such behavior obser

Oskar von Watter

Oskar Walther Gerhard Julius Freiherr von Watter was a German Generalleutnant, came from an old Pomeranian noble family. In April 1913 Von Watter took over the command of the 10th Brigade of Field Artillery, which he kept until 3 March 1915. With this force, General von Watter took part in the early fighting of World War I in France. Subsequently, he took over the 54th Infantry Division, which he commanded until 5 March 1918; this division was also deployed in France, but it was sent to fight on the eastern front by the river Narew, from September 1915 was again at the western front. On 23 December 1917 he was awarded the Pour le Mérite for military bravery; until 11 November 1918 he was commander of the XXVI Reserve Corps. A few days before the end of the war, on 3 November 1918, he was awarded the oak leaves of the "Pour le Mérite". On the orders of the Reich government, units of the Reichswehr and Freikorps under the command of Von Watter marched into the Ruhr area on 2 April 1920 and suppressed the Ruhr Uprising taking place.

After extrajudicial shootings resulting in more than a thousand dead, on 12 April 1920 Von Watter issued the order that from on, "illegal behaviour" would be dealt with – nine days after Reich President Friedrich Ebert had forbidden the summary trials taking place. On his initiative, to the south of the castle Horst in Essen in 1934 a monument was erected in memory of the Freikorps soldiers who died in 1920 during the suppression of the Ruhr Uprising. Von Watter was buried in the Invalid's Cemetery. Newspaper clippings about Oskar von Watter in the 20th Century Press Archives of the ZBW
