Well that is Beast backed. Now just gotta re-read Werewolf 2nd ed so I can review it for Darker Days. Nice to feel like I have time to do that now I am settling into the new flat.

Well that's nice to know. So I sent my mum my wife's old smartphone, a Sony Xperia P, because she needed a new phone, and one that was able to get a better signal out in the country. Seems like it worked out well, for a phone that is over 2 years old. Hopefully soon I can send here the Xperia S when I upgrade my wife's phone with mine and I get a larger phone.

Had a 3vs3 starter game, Morticians vs Engineers. Very enjoyable, nice skirmish game with good sports element and really nice flavour.

I love this building in the heart of Manchester. 
And the M.E.N. can reveal Capital & Centric, the firm behind Manchester's planned new Kampus quarter, are considering a swoop for the controversial building

Introduction
Born in the Marches in Herefordshire and spent my childhood in the sleepy town of Kington, just on the border to Wales.

I didn't follow the crowd and being a Capricorn I stood by my guns and was interested from an early age in comic books, sci fi, martial arts and mythology. I'd like to think I have a strong sense of right and wrong, always being as honorable and gentlemanly at all times. Though add into the mix a large amount of sarcasm and puerile madness and you basically have a 30 year old scientist, going on 15. I would like to think that I have an open mind to the world, however being a scientist also means that I also like a certain amount of fact. I am not religious but have an appreciation for religions and philosophies, particularly those that have roots in metaphysics and mathematics.

I've had a number of jobs part time, in particular working for Games Workshop when I was an undergraduate at UMIST in Manchester. Having finished undergraduate studies I studied for my PhD in computational chemistry at the University of Manchester. I am now a Postdoctoral researcher in computational chemistry at the University of Warwick and as a consequence live in the lovely town of Leamington Spa. I also like writing and being a Storyteller for role play games, mainly those by White Wolf, but also Etherscope and WHRP. I have also dabbled in script writing, short stories and free lance writing for a sci fi roleplay game. I also co-host the Darker Days Podcast.


I am now married to the love of my life, Sam, without whom life would not be as exciting and wonderful.

Skills: Fortran, UNIX, SVL, Neural Networks, Multi-objective algorithms, kriging, some C++, some perl, Molecular Mechanics, quantum mechanics, writing (scientific and fiction).

A stunning restaurant, excellent food (if you like you meat) and amazing service, which all made for an excellent honeymoon stay in Verona.

Really the best time to visit is either Carnival for the extravagance, or the day after Carnival, when it is totally empty. Venice is a wonderful city, and worth the visit. Just don't feed the pigeons. It was utterly empty the day after Carnival which was also the day of my wedding. Of course there are many shops etc that make Venice seem very commercial, but then you are best advised to find the true Venice by walking off the beaten path and finding all strange streets, hidden buildings, and learning about the city's strange history (there is a great book on the folklore and supernatural about the city).

Excellent service and coffee. While it may not be the Florian, it is far more well kept and just as good.

The best coffee in Germany, and great service and food, plus a bit of culture. Also near to the Berlin Gates.

Expensive, but worth it for the service and the quality of food.

Worth the ticket, which also gets you into a number of other museums that are on St Mark's Square.
