+ Giveaway!
Merth is a tabletop I have put a lot of love into. It’s finally time to put it into motion, so I’ve created a kickstarter that you can find here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1140231737/merth-the-spring-of-life
In short, my goal with Merth is to create a tabletop that fulfills the needs of my usual groups as a GM. My friends love the idea of high fantasy DnD action, but frequently get bored of the heavy, slow, confusing combat. That is, if they manage to get past the unfriendly wall of rules and character creation to even play a game.
Merth is a d6 system designed for fantasy lovers who don’t necessarily need to spend days learning the game to have fun with it. The final version will come with a guide that teaches all necessary rules while also guiding you through character creation.
Merth also has a colorful cast of races set in a magical world given life by a magic spring that is overflowing with history. The intelligent wooden Pincos, sinful amphibious Peclins, hotheaded reptilian Geelos, devoted religious Humans and many other races make way for new roleplaying possiblities.
You can read all about the game at the kickstarter’s link.
As a bonus, I will do a tumblr giveaway. Reblog this post for a chance to win a book, pdf and alpha access to the game. Even if you can’t donate, you can reblog this for a chance to win the game for free. You can also enter for a separate chance to win by spreading word about Merth on other social platforms, just submit a screenshot of your Facebook/Twitter/etc post to this blog.
As soon as the kickstarter reaches its goal, the first test version of Merth will be sent to all backers. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog and help me reach my goal. Thank you for the chance to make this game into a reality.

I’ve finally launched my kickstarter! Those of you who follow my personal blog know how much time I’ve spent on this and how much it means to me. Please spread the word as much as you can. I really want to bring everyone a great game.

All That Remains: A Haunting Gallery of Extinct Animals in Paris

La Salle des Espèces Menacées et des Espèces Disparues, or the Room of Endangered and Extinct Species, has 257 specimens from the animal and plant kingdoms. Many are the only remaining examples of their species, such as the skeleton of a black emu (the taxidermy is so precious that it is kept in storage). Others represent a species that is on the brink of obliteration, including the Sumatran tiger.

The giant thief, Gigantoraptor (2007)
Phylum : ChordataClass : ReptiliaOrder : SaurischiaSuborder : TheropodaSuperfamily : CaenagnathoideaFamily : CaenagnathidaeGenus : GigantoraptorSpecies : G. erlianensis
Late Cretaceous (86,3 - 83,6 Ma)
8 m long and 1 400 kg (size)
Dabasu formation, Mongolia (map)
Despite its scary name, it’s important to realize that Gigantoraptor wasn’t technically a true raptor, like Deinonychus, Velociraptor or the equally huge Utahraptor. Rather, this large, feathered theropod was a close relative of Oviraptor, and the largest such “dino-bird” yet discovered. Gigantoraptor was “diagnosed” based on a single, incomplete skeleton found in Mongolia in 2005, so further discoveries may shed some much-needed light on its lifestyle.

The single greatest picture ever taken in my life. We threw Yu-gi-oh cards at the ceiling fan to watch them scatter, and just happened to take a picture right at this exact moment. To this day, this is the only time I’ve ever heard of anyone breaking a ceiling fan blade with cards.
