For Matinee Monday I wanted to cover the 30 year release of Raiders of The Lost Ark! I saw this film with a bunch of friends at a local theater & it did my head in back in '81. Released on June 12, 1981, Raiders of the Lost Ark became the top-grossing film of 1981.The plot in case you don't know it is: .1. Raiders of the Lost Ark (also known as Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark) is a 1981 American action-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by George Lucas, and starring Harrison Ford. It is the first (chronologically the second) film in the Indiana Jonesfranchise. It pits Indiana Jones (Ford) against the Nazis, who search for the Ark of the Covenant, because Adolf Hitler believes it will make their army invincible.

Do I really need to say anything about the cultural impact of this movie? If your not stealing elements of this movie for your game or campaign is there a point to doing a pulp or rpg campaign at all? Ok I'm going to avoid using Coc & most of the easily thought of table top resources out there.
|Dr. Jones attempts to navigate an OSR trap. Will he succeed?
