Diros Island at Nochet where the great warships are built.

Lots of snapshots of concept art for the Gods War Game.

A few nigglings besides salivating:
What is the Grotaron doing wielding the bow one-armed?
Which of Harry, Tom and Dick (the bodies of Cwim) is the female?

Zum Thema Anti-Ad-Blocking:

Wenn es zertifizierte Werbung gäbe, die
- keine Schadsoftware einführt
- keine Tracker installiert
- einen positiven Unterhatungswert besitzt
- das Datenvolumen nicht über Gebühr belastet

Dann sollte ein Ad-Blocker diese auch durchlassen.

Normalerweise bin ich ja gar kein Freund des Zertifizierungsfimmel, aber die Werbewirtschaft hat genug verbockt, dass ich ihr diesen Wasserkopf nur zu gerne zumuten mag.

Und es schafft neue Arbeitsplätze...

Wishing my music courses at school had been a bit more practical in the subjects of composing and arrangement...
 
This is super neat. :D

If you want to find real world inspiration for megalith sites, here's a map for Britain and Ireland you could use as a travel guide.

I'll have to look out for a similar overview site for continental Europe - I know that the Schleswig Holstein sites alone number around 100, but those are hidden in printed information by Archäologisches Landesamt.
 
Weirdly useful for certain kinds of historical world building:
The top destination for Megaliths and Prehistory worldwide. Megalith Map mega map browser. Ancient Sites in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland:

+David Weihe​ Ah yes, as you say that just looks like some shading on the map.
+Martin Helsdon​ Indeed, I was of course just referring to the megaliths. Earthworks are all over the place and are, as you say, in a lot of cases either highly eroded or already destroyed. But there must be tons of undiscovered ones still out there. Aerial photography combined with the right soil conditions (e.g. after a drought) turns them up all the time, as I'm sure you know. Cursus features are quite fascinating to me, as are causewayed enclosures.

Looks quite similar to Kalin's color schemes in Prince of Sartar:
 
"Color the Temple:" The Met Digitally Restores Colors of Ancient Egyptian Temple Using Projection Mapping Technology http://www.openculture.com/2016/03/the-met-digitally-restore-the-colors-of-an-ancient-egyptian-temple.html …
Thanks to the tireless efforts of archaeologists, we have a pretty clear idea of what much of the ancient world looked like, at least as far as the clothes people wore and the structures in and around which they spent their days.

Amazing. I wonder if the whole temple was painted with a white background.

I would like to point out that there might be quarantines and vaccination deadlines to be kept, so make sure that your familiars have all the necessary papers...

UniCon 41 am 13.08.2016...

23. Januar 1988 haben wir UniCon Nummer 1 veranstaltet, nach einem halben Jahr Vorlauf zur Gründung der Hochschulgruppe und als Nachfolger von etwa einem Dutzend Cons der PläiBeck-Redaktion.

Dass diese Convention nicht totzukriegen ist, finde ich erstaunlich. Das fing mal als meine Spielrunde an...

Looks like a nifty and scaleable game. Kickstarter has just started, time enough to play a few games with improvised pieces before deciding to pledge.

EU shipping upgrade is insane, though (student level pledge rises from 15$ to 39$, for shipping a single hardcover book) - perhaps they should start a licensed edition with a European publisher parallel to the US edition.
 
Do you like games? Do you like my books? Would you like a chance to play a beautiful game set in my books?

If so, today's blog is for you....
Pat Rothfuss and James Ernest have been working together in order to bring you Tak: A staggeringly beautiful game set in the Kingkiller world.

Hic sunt automatae, or Here be robots - a mediaeval map of the red planet.
 
Here there be Robots. A medieval style map of Mars. It would be nice to have a copy of this with the modern references excised.

A beautiful map. Medieval? Nope.
