Tucker and Dale vs Evil - perhaps a brilliant idea for a WoD one shot to teach players the meaning of consequences, and to show how even being the 'good guys' means that they are doing evil stuff.

Well that was nice and quick and easy. Just got the bases ready for the Batman minis done. So much easier to use the artist silica gels than sand.

Wonderfully derpy. The 'it can't be coincidence' that these blood moons fall on holy days is ridiculous, because be definition these holy dates have to fall on full moons. Anyway enjoy, here commeth the Eye of the Wyrm.
 
Oh boy here we go

Still damned cool though.
IF YOU'RE feeling out of sorts today don't worry, it isn't just you.

So finally had a play with the new set of Terraclips, Prison of the Forsaken. Out of all the sets this one is perhaps one of the best. It has tiles with holes cut out for that prison feel (both walls and floors), 4 sections that create a arena pit (so that these floor tiles have cut outs that mean when connected together they create a circular walkway), and of course props like beds, swinging axe traps, and weapon racks. The whole look is perfect for loads of games, both rpg and wargame, and has a really good Orgoth feel. (Minis here are Rackham figures from the Hybrid board game).

More than anything I just want to send my condolences to the WoDMMO team, and I hope they can more onto brighter things.

I wish i could say I'm surprised, but I've dreaded this happening since The 2011 Black Wednesday. They've been putting all their effort into EVE and DUST that I couldn't really see them trying to monetize a new IP.

Do we know who all lost their jobs from old White Wolf?

I will more than likely use this terrain for bits of part 2 and 3 of the Witchfire chronicle which I will be continuing soon.

Spent last night and a bit of today putting together a whole load of Batman figures for the Batman Miniatures Game. Damn they are a bit fiddly and need some cleaning up, and I still need to do some green stuff work on them.

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.

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.

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.

Great service, and good, well priced, but not overly complicated food.
