• knight: so how does the whole summoning thing work? i'd think harnessing the power of the gods would be pretty tricky.
  • summoner: that's not quite accurate. it's less "gods" that i summon so much as...
  • summoner: well, it's hard to describe easily. manifestations of the aggregated beliefs and commonalities of our cultures, represented through a shared symbology that i can tap into.
  • knight:
  • knight: so, memes?
  • summoner: i don't - what?
  • knight: you summon memes.
  • summoner: no, no it's completely different from - i don't summon memes!
  • knight: hey, Y U NO SUMMON ME? haha

shulk for worst newcomer, hate his name, voice, and sword so much

Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale. 
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top. 
There were some insane  awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.

This GIF shows how the toucan releases heat using its beak to cool itself off.
The toucan beak isn’t just beautiful, it’s also an adjustable thermal radiator that the bird uses to warm and cool itself. When the bird is hot, the blood vessels in their beak open up to allow more circulation to enable heat to escape. Birds can’t sweat so they have to come up with some life hacks to get the job done. [video]

This is absolutely fascinating. It seems so obvious that the beak would be a good way to radiate heat out, but I’d never even thought of that.

That is awesome!

historical-nonfiction:

Some crabs near Danno-ura in Japan have patterns on their shells bearing an uncanny resemblance to a face of a samurai. When caught, these crabs are thrown back in commemoration of the Heike samurai clan, who lost a naval battle there in 1185. The patterns on the crabs’ shells are inherited, and it is believed that the patterns evolved because fishermen tended to throw back crabs with patterns resembling faces. Crabs with patterns most resembling a face had a better chance of survival. Eventually, the pattern of the face of a fierce, scowling samurai evolved.

+ 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.
