USE ME Eldrich Horror is up for pre-order!

The Ultra-Simple Engine for Miniature Engagements against Eldrich Horror, or, in short, USE ME ELDRICH HORROR, is up for pre-order on the site!

And who is its proud author? ME!

This is a rules-light, fast-play ruleset based on the old USE ME SCI FI rules by Gavin Syme, now re-designed for epic battles of hardy investigators against Lovecraftian horrors from beyond space and time. It includes rules for all the genre's essential elements, from sanity checks through artefact research to tentacles - and vile sorcery! The default setting is the 1930's England, but it could be easily used for modern gaming as well.

As the author of this work, I highly recommend it; it has been fun to write, and it will be fun to play!

Dragon Encounter!

No, not the fire-breathing type, but rather the cute lizard type. These two are Painted Dragons (Laudakia Stellio AKA Roughtail Rock Agama), closely related to both Bearded Dragons and Water Dragons and distantly related to Iguanas and Chameleons. These particular specimen dig their lairs between the stones of the outer wall of Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel.
