Medieval Tapestry Generator

I have a sneaking suspicion that I've seen this on some other blog in the distant past but just in case that's my faulty memory at work, I'll risk repetition and mention it here.

For those of you looking for a neat prop generator for your pseudo-medieval, fantasy role-playing campaign, hie yourselves over to The Historic Tale Construction Kit and lose a an hour or two playing around with their Flash drag and drop application that allows you to create your own medieval story tapestries. It can be a little wonky so I'd recommend you doing a lot of screen captures as you go along just to be safe, but the end product turns out to be a lot of fun and makes a perfect prop to drop onto your game table for your players to "ooh" and "ahh" over.

Doggerel of the most horrid variety (skieses?) but not bad for about a half-hour of monkey business on the web.

Almost as cool as the animated Bayeux Tapestry.
