Monkey?

Post by shintokamikaze » Wed May 09, 2018 9:18 am

Anyone watching the new legends of monkey on netflix, I loved the old 70s version as a kid but the new version is a big hit with my kids, lots of kungfu and magic action and some good scenario ideas :lol:

I've seen the old ones but only ads for the new series yet. Sounds like they were filmed in New Zealand so I might recognise something!

Newt of D101 games has apparently put together a Monkey RPG. The free Quickstart is here:

The full version was available for awhile for free (pay what you want), but only the Quickstart is showing up. I got the full version several years back and the RPGNow product page for it doesn't exist for it when I click d to go to it in my RPGNow Libary to go to the product page.

Also, you may want to give a listen too.

That is one of the few podcasts I listen to.

Surprised now one mentioned Frankie Avalon once played the money king in a movie. ;) (Comet shows that animated film a lot.)

Are you talking about just another adaptation of Journey to the West?

Yeah they're all based on the old Chinese story Journey to the West, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_to_the_West.
