Gaml is a boomerang-wielding camel who represents the letter Gimel. He was named by the first man Adam, in the beginning of “Milhamah” history. The two became friends, with Gaml toting around (and enjoying) Adam’s abundant wealth.
Gaml is based on the shoresh root גמל and its broader family. As such, his nature is tied to compensation and payback; ripening; concealing cloaks; a mouthful of drink; and purulence. His sentient hump is a golem, which in Hebrew means “amorphous mass” or pupa (as well as a giant clod monster). Both Gaml and his hump glitter like gold.
Although Gaml seemed to vanish from the land of Eretz after a separation from Adam, legend says he may return with the help of the Gimel foundation glyph. However, in a world tainted and corrupted by lies, Gaml’s vengeful demeanor may be too fearsome for mere mortals…
Find out more about Adam and his friends in the coming weeks. Once they’re introduced, the “Milhamah” epic will continue!
Other ‘Milhamah’ updates
Other franchise updates have been continuing behind the scenes. For instance, we recently built a presence on Pixiv, a Japanese art site, in order to gain a wider international presence.
Meanwhile, I’ve been continuing to make progress on the Milhamah RPG rules. Lately I’ve been working on getting the combat actions and skills right. Currently the rules are in an early alpha stage, so they will be greatly changed (and probably simplified) by the time I’m ready to publish them. Meanwhile, I hope to upload some special dice on Tabletop Simulator that people can use to play. While I have homemade dice at home, a digital set will likelier be cheaper and easier to roll out.
In the meantime, please tell your comic-loving friends about “Milhamah!” We’d love to have more commenters and fans over here and on our forum. Thank you for reading!
