Great interview with the actor Mark Ryan here: http://www.boldoutlaw.com/robint/ryan1.html

Did he really inspire Drizzt? I've never read those books.

Re: Robin of Sherwood

Weird, I've just been re-watching these myself. Loved them as a child and if I squint hard enough they are still entertaining today all these years later. Loved the pagan/satanic elements in the first episode and Herne's brand of celtic derived mysticism clearly left some massive impression on me when I was a nipper.

I've actually just put together a frostgrave warband inspired by robin Of Sherwood, using a stag lord model as my wizard ala Herne! we#ll be discussing Robin Of Sherwood and the movie Excalibur on the next episode of the Dungeonpunx podcast
