Cairo Surge uses Borogrove’s facility as a safe house, as it’s the only place where he can be treated for the cyberserpentine affliction that made him Immortal. - K&T, page 13.

Also, holy shuuucks, io9 coverage?!
The tabletop gaming industry has a rich history of releasing joke products and silly articles for April Fools' Day, and this year is no different. Here are some of best, including Katanas & Trenchcoats, the brooding '90s throwback RPG you never knew you always wanted.

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.
