Barrowmaze Homage: Merlin is Dead...and Yet He Lives

You may have read the story that Scottish actor Nicol Williamson is dead.

He played the wonderful role of Merlin in the movie Excalibur.

This is strangely serendipitous.

There are a number of both literary and aesthetic homages in my Barrowmaze megadungeon. It just so happens that one of them (by Stefan Poag) includes a very respectful tip of the (skull) cap to Williamson as Merlin. Boy, I am really glad that we did this illustration. Rest in Peace.


  1. He also read a wicked The Hobbit that is amazing to listen to on cold winter nights, or really, any night.

  2. A friend of mine just mentioned that earlier today.
