Most of the info here relates to Mike's game, called "The Rass Game" after the family all the characters belong to, or "The Pavis Campaign" after the ancient, mostly ruined, perhaps resurgent desert city they live in. The game is a story now more than a decade old, following the Rass family from its dissolute past, fractured by one brother's scorn of the ancestors, to its dangerous, promising future as the leaders of the city. Along the way the newest members of the house have proven themselves by restoring their father to life, through great deeds in the Other Side and in battles both physical and magical.
In recognition of these victories, Will I Am, a strange proto-man who is at once all races and both sexes, has been recognized by the city priesthood as the Champion of Pavis.

And then sometimes we play pirates or the ignorant thanes of a backwoods clan mostly interested in stealing the neighbors' cattle.

OK Historical Adventure, GREAT Gloranthan Movie: Valhalla Rising

I say ignore the real world references. This movie (available on netflix) works much better as a Gloranthan tale.

The first several acts give a great impression of Southern Sartar.

One Eye, the lead character, is a Humakti weapon master strong in the Death rune and with powerful geasa to never speak.

After escaping from slavery with an enemy clan and narrowly avoiding being sold to a Lunar searching for gladiators, he falls in with a group of Aeolian fanatics on their way to free the City of Wonders. Lost on a small boat in a magical mist, they instead cross over into an otherworld filled with hostile invisible demons.

The blonde kid is his sidekick.

The ending kinda sucks though. Click Read More for the trailer.
