  1. Most peachwood swords are made for practice. This one, however, was made from wood from a peach tree that grew at Mount Longhu in the shadow of the Hanging Coffins, cut by a Doashi of the Seventh Ordination. He carved the Seven Stars into its blade, and danced their power. This weapon damages most targets, including astral, ethereal, phantasmal and the like. When magical characters are written on the blade with grease, the damage vs. intangible targets is changed to Killing (HKA). These magical characters must be renewed from time to time, as they wear off. 15 30 point Multipower, 0 END, vs. Desolid, OAF u1 3d6 HA u1 1d6 HKA Of course, a Heroic Level version would include STR Min and possibly Real Weapon Limitations. From The Girl with Ghost Eyes, by M. H. Boroson, more fun than any novel I've read for years.

  9. 1942, Milton Caniff's Burma strips began appearing in American military service papers. From Wikipedia: During the war, Caniff began a second strip, a special version of Terry and the Pirates without Terry but featuring the blonde bombshell, Burma. Caniff donated all of his work on this strip to the armed forces—the strip was available only in military newspapers. After complaints from the Miami Herald about the military version of the strip being published by military newspapers in the Herald's circulation territory, the strip was renamed Male Call and given a new star, Miss Lace, a beautiful woman who lived near every military base and enjoyed the company of enlisted men, whom she addressed as "Generals". Her function, Caniff often said, was to remind service men what they were fighting for, and while the situations in the strip included much 'double entendre', Miss Lace was not portrayed as being promiscuous. Much more so than civilian comic strips which portrayed military characters, Male Call was notable for its honest depiction of what the servicemen encountered; one strip displays Lace dating a soldier on leave who had lost an arm (she lost her temper when a civilian insulted him for that disability). Another strip had her dancing with a man in civilian clothes; a disgruntled GI shoved and mocked him for having an easy life, but Lace's partner was in fact an ex-GI blinded in battle. Caniff continued Male Call until seven months after V-J Day, ending it in March 1946.
