Homage to the best RPG cover ever

I had seen this image before for an upcoming Exalted supplement…but until James Maliszewski pointed it out, I didn’t quite realize that this cover is clearly an homage.
It’s an homage to this classic AD&D cover.
For what its worth, I thought the cover to the AD&D DM’s guide was pretty neat, too. In fact, I liked it so much I managed to tuckerize an rendition of it into Strange Bedfellows, my Amber PBEM.
