Museum of Dungeons & Dragons | Indiegogo.

Dungeons and Dragons is probably one of the most famous RPGs, mainly due to it being the ancestor of most modern role playing games and it having introduced countless waves of people to the hobby. Its influences have been manifold in pop culture, films, TV, books, comics and art. It is THE daddy of the RPG world.

Now this couple Jim and Debbie Hunton, want to make a museum dedicated to it. They don’t just want to get a place and stick stuff in it, they actually want to do it from scratch by building it.

All I’m thinking is, $150000 is a lot of cash, and while I’m not saying that it can’t be done, I think that it could be done that little bit easier and cheaper. Still it’s in the US, so even if it comes about, I don’t think I’ll be getting chance to visit for some time. (I’m broke and in the UK!)

Still what do I know!

As ever The Grinning Skull will keep a close eye on the progress and urge you to dig deep in your pockets and help fund this project.

We wish Jim and Debbie all the best and good luck with making their plans a reality!

RolePlay Magazine by Ryan Harden — Kickstarter.

Now, I was involved in LARP (or LRP if your kickin’ it old school like me!) for many years to what seems like a long time ago now, So even now, I have a real soft spot for the hobby even to this day. While I don’t play anymore (Having responsibilities and kids put an end to that) I’d still like to hopefully intergrate myself back into it as soon as my eldest can be trusted to be initiated in the circle of LARP!

That’s why I thought I’d spotlight this kickstarter. Roleplay magazine is what seems to be a mainly LARP centric magazine in both print and E format. Now this I will buy,as long as it gets funded. Its been a long time coming for the LARP community, but whether it will achieve its goal is another matter. I’m not too aware of the attitudes of US LARPers, but if they are anything like UK ones, there will be a fair amount of apathy from the community. All I can say is if I had any money, I would help out, but as I have none, I urge those of you that do to get it funded! I’m not tight, just skint!

I wish Ryan the best of luck, and as ever will keep you all updated with it’s progress, and if there is any other way I can help out I will for sure!!

As with any Kickstarter or crowdfunding news, please reblog, share, email, talk about it with all you can. This way everyone can help get these projects further!!

Lock up your daughters, It seems Bigfoot likes the human ladies….

Boffin claims Bigfoot DNA reveals BESTIAL BONKING • The Register.

This old Bigfoot DNA stuff is suggesting that the “Hybrid” human species was derived from another hominin interbreeding with a human female thousands of years ago. So I was right!

Like I mentioned, where did this sample evidence come from? Well, this seems to come from the recent hunt in Russia, but if this is the case, why do they suggest this is North American rather than Russian?

Until I see one, I’m not convinced. Dr Ketchum, go catch one!

‘Cannibal cop’, Gilberto Valle wanted to take a girl home for Thanksgiving dinner….

MMmmm. loving the “girlmeat” Happy Thanksgiving folks!!English: Thanksgiving cheer distributed for men in service.

‘Cannibal cop’ | Gilberto Valle | New York City policeman|denied bail.

The world it seems is chocablock with all kinds of oddball loons, especially with the addition of the internet allowing these sad mental loners to correspond with other mentals that share similar ideals.

One of which is cannabalism. OK, I don’t mind talking taboo subjects, but when society creates a bubble of taboo around something, there will always be those who seek to get their damaged minds around the repression and just get nuts.

The worst of all, there seems to be an underground movement on the net of loony wannabe cannibals hooking up with each other over chatrooms and messageboards to get off on their twisted desires. Even worse is this guy was actually a cop, and was meticulously planning to abduct a female so he could slow cook her and eat her on Thanksgiving day.

Now, I’m from the UK, so as far as I’m aware, don’t you guys in the states usually have a huge turkey dinner with all the trimmings? It’s his craving for some “girl meat” that’s got him into bother, even though he hasn’t even done anything apart from “his intent” which to all we know would maybe only ever fantasised about. Still the guy is a fucking loon!

My opinion on whether I’d resort to eating another human being would be in the same sense as the crash survivors, who resorted to it to survive. Humans are to rife with disease and lurgies, and unless people were actually grown for the purpose of eating and screened for all the dirty bugs and genetic impurities the same way we do for animals, I wouldn’t touch them, even if “Long Pig” is supposed to be the most exquisite meat.

I wouldn’t eat a dog, and statistically it’s got less bugs and bacteria than an average human, so neither would I tuck into a steak of human flesh.

Maybe he thought he would make a change this year, after all isn’t it supposed to taste like “Chicken”…..

Swedish woman accused of having sex with skeletons – Yahoo! News UK

Swedish woman accused of having sex with skeletons – Yahoo! News UK.

As much as we are reviled by talk of necrophilia and such like death fetishes, I still find things like this funny!

Yeah, you can call me a sicko that I find stuff like this amusing, but lets face it, one can only wonder how people like this get such a buzz about having a fulfilling sex life with the dead.

Talk about this woman enjoying a good boning, well it would seem she does quite literally, as well as the occasional skullf**k too!

I wouldn’t know euro law‘s rules on this practice, but if she hasn’t been grave robbing to get the bones and she’s got them legally (which is possible, the last antiques fair I went to had a box containing about 65% of a real skeleton, which I would have bought if I’d had enough cash. It was only about £50 which is pretty cheap, but without any real documentation to say how old and where it’s origin was from, I wouldn’t have bought it.) is it still against the law to perform some bone rattling with it?

It’s something that you would have never thought about unless some dimwit like her gets into the public domain and brings up the issue. Not that I care, I just don’t think that unless necrophilia of this type is totally illegal, there wouldn’t be much they could do.

We of the Grinning Skull would just like to say; Dirty necro skeleton fucking lady, thank you for making us laugh!!
