    The artist featured himself on the cover of Tribes of the Heartless
    Wastes, along with renditions of Rich Baker and Ed Stark.

    Apparently.

    Rich did say that Ed was the 'flaming head on a stick' to which Ed
    replied 'well, Rich is the big, white, furry lizard'.

    In actuality, I _think_ that Tony is the Vos guy (any or all of
    them), while Ed and Rich are the two dead/dying Brecht chaps. I might
    have that wrong, of course.

    Trivia

    On the cover of Cities of the Sun, there's an inscription on the front warrior's shield in Arabic that reads "Mada'in al-Shams" and means "Cities of the Sun".

    Anybody else got any BR trivia? :)

    If the Birthright cover artist (I'm not gonna spell his name here because
    I can't) can have the sense to pick up an Arabian dictionary to enhance
    his cover art, then why the couldn't the designers of the Rjurik Highlands
    get themselves a Norse and/or Swedish dictionary to make up some good
    domain names? I mean, that can't be too hard? Just make up some cool
    names in English and then translate em - literally if you have to.
    Perhaps an idea for the list, to make up new names for the Rjurik area?

    So who is who? Which of the characters on the cover is Rich, which is
    Ed and which is Tony? Any idea?
