Middle Earth Map Style – Adventures In Mapping
Here are a couple maps made to resemble the epic collaboration of JRR (oops, turns out it was Christopher) Tolkien and Pauline Baynes. I would consume every little pen stroke as a kid, poring over the insert maps of Middle Earth in my sister’s LOTR set (which mysteriously now live on my shelf)…

Reapportionment Act of 1929 - Wikipedia
The permanent House size has generated some controversy because, combined with continued population growth, it leads to larger Congressional districts for each Representative. Opponents of a constant House size claim that the framers of the Constitution intended each district size to remain between 30,000 and roughly 60,000 constituents, and that larger district sizes take away representation from the people.[12] According to the 2010 census, the average district size is more than 700,000 constituents per representative. To keep the average district size below 60,000 constituents would require a House size of over 5,000 members. However, if the logarithmic progression suggested by the original Article were to be continued, then approximately 1500 members of Congress would each represent fewer than 200,000 residents (based upon the 2010 census).

Aegon's Conquest MegaGame - DDE Adventures | DriveThruRPG.com
Aegon’s Conquest is a medieval fantasy themed tabletop megagame, meaning that it is an interactive experience where a large number of players work either together or against each other to affect the greater storyline. Aegon’s Conquest is a team-based competitive endeavor with tightly defined rules and player options. The game aligns its players into eight major factions of four players each with the ultimate goal to have the most points by the end. It encourages face-to-face diplomacy, tactical play, secret dealings, betrayal, and heartfelt roleplaying. The game is based on the history and deep lore as presented in the A Song of Ice & Fire literary series, though knowledge of the source material is not needed to play or run this game.

Getting back to RSS – A Whole Lotta Nothing
Here’s my exported Newsblur RSS feed list. It’s mostly everything I was following until the day Google Reader died. Of these couple hundred feeds, only a couple dozen are regularly updating these days and I’m slowly pruning out old dead ones that turn into commercial blogs when the owners stop paying for a domain and a squatter takes over.

For the most part, they’re people I met early into blogging and at events like SXSW in the early 2000s. Going through the list is like a trip through memory lane. I even pruned about a dozen links that went to long-since dead services like Google Blog Search, Bloglines, and Technorati search results I had saved in RSS.

The Four Corners of Civilization | Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Depicted on the map at the beginning of both books, the Four Corners consists of seven countries all greatly differing from each other in culture. Judging from the map, the name describes the four largest nations, territory wise. These consist of the Commonwealth in the south-west, Ceald in the north-west, Modeg in the north-east, and Vintas in the south-east. These frame the Aturan Empire, with two smaller outlying nations the Small Kingdoms and Yll. The map also features the country of Ademre which is not part of the Four Corners. The Four Corners is bordered on three sides by water and the Stormwal Mountains on the other.

Using 5th Edition D&D to do Sci-Fi: Class Talk – Role Play Craft
Would it be worth it?

The main reason I enjoy the 5th edition ruleset is it’s simplicity, and the ease at which you can arbitrate the rules at the table. I’ve enjoyed a number of sci-fi rulesets throughout the years, but I can think of none that can match the simplicity of 5e. Could a conversion be worth it? Would the feel of the sci-fi genre be lost in that translation?

GURPS and Traveller are my two favorite systems that can be used for sci-fi, but both of these systems are complex and definitely not pick-up-and-play friendly. In some ways that is the charm of these systems. Traveller character creation is, to me, a game in itself. However, could the ease of play of 5e be used to make a simple and fun sci-fi system?

Corellian Jedi | Wookieepedia | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Corellian Jedi, or Green Jedi as they were known during the Cold War, were a reclusive sect of the Jedi Order serving the Corellian sector. Known for their distinctive customs and practices, the Corellian Jedi were highly independent and separate from the Order's central governing body, the Jedi High Council. Holding the well-being of Corellia over that of the Galactic Republic, the Corellian Jedi often butted heads with their traditional counterparts within the Order over how certain situations should be handled and where their duty lay.

The Black Hole
Predating the production of Star Wars, the Movie The Black Hole (originally known as “Space Probe One”) is a forgotten classic considered to be a landmark film in science fiction cinema. Because of it’s ground-breaking effects, The Black Hole was the most expensive picture Walt Disney Productions ever created prior to the year it was made, 1979. Robert McCall helped develop the unique look of the film that still inspires film-makers to this day. The Black Hole was Disney’s first PG-rated film and also marked the first time Disney had made a straight sci-fi movie.

Gnoll (5e Race) - D&D Wiki
Gnolls are infamous among races such as humans and elves for their brutality and demonic heritage. For the most part, they aren't wrong. Many gnoll packs are indeed aggressive and have a demonic side to their affairs. Typically they worship the demon lord Yeenoghu. They also tend to be rather aggressive and are still mistrusted and avoided. To them, the pack is more important than anything else.
