The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec

Luc Besson is one of my favourite directors and I eagerly await his latest film based on the mid 70s comic books by Jacques Tardi.  Can't wait for this one... and as hits UK screens this month, it looks like I won't have to.

ThunderCats are on the Loose...

In a brand new series set to premiere some time in July 2011 on the Cartoon Network Here's a taste of what's in store in the recently released trailer .

Citymorphs #025 to #029

My apologies for the unplanned hiatus in citymorphing, unfortunately my proto career as a blogger does not yet pay the bills.  Here's four more tiles to satisfy.

 #025 - Canal 002

Another canal tile with a bendy bit in it.  Hopefully this will line up properly this time.  I will get round to fixing #006 Very Little Venice at some point in the near future.
 #026 - Slum 001

Not everyone in Morphia lives above the poverty line as demonstrated by this slum district.
#027 - Arena 001

Since the Colliseum was built this smaller arena has had to suffice with smaller scale entertainments such as public executions and beast fighting.
#028 - Arena 002

The owners of the Arena found that there are a few notable advantages to a smaller venue... It can be flooded and mock naval battles can be staged!!

Games and 3D Printing: Thorn Dice

3D Printing is one technology I just can't wait to get my hands on.  The possibilities for gaming in general are pretty exciting particularly in the realm of P'n'P (Print 'n' Play) where you can print your own miniatures, scenery and other game components.

I spotted these Thorn Dice this morning courtesy of the guys over at Make Magazine.  Designed by Chuck Stover (aka ceramicwombat) and available to buy from shapeways, they look strangely lovecraftian.

Legendary Locations: Strahov Library Philosophical Hall

360Cities have put together this amazing 40 gigapixel image of the Philosophical Hall inside the 18th Century Strahov Library in Prague.

Strahov Library, Prague
The image is so detailed that you can zoom in and read the titles on the spines of each book.  What a wonderful location for a Cthulhu Modern game.  The library is an old monastery which has many other interesting architectural features.
