Welcome to my Lair!

Welcome to the Lair of Evil Dr Ganymede! On this site, you’ll find my my Elite Dangerous blog, 2300AD RPG blog and science blog as well as articles about role-playing games, worldbuilding, and Stellar Mapping that I’ve written or co-authored, along with artwork that I’ve created using 3D modelling software (POVray and Lightwave) over the years. I’ve also put my Ph.D. Thesis and abstracts online on my Science page.

I run a blog here in which I generally talk about my latest finds in Elite Dangerous, RPGs and worldbuilding, and interesting planetary science and astronomy topics, and any other stuff I find interesting too (you can read all the blog entries below this post, so scroll down! To read the full article, just click on the title of the entry in the blog). If you just want to read blog entries about specific subjects (e.g. Science, Worldbuilding, Stellar Mapping, etc) you can just click the link in the sidebar on the right under “Categories” (you can use that link as a bookmark too).

Lately I’ve also started streaming Elite Dangerous, which you can find on my Twitch page at https://www.twitch.tv/evildrganymede and archived on my Youtube channel. You can keep up with when I stream on my Twitter at https://twitter.com/evildrganymede, but it’s usually Tuesday evening PST/PDT from 6pm-8pm and Saturday Morning PST/PDT from 10am-12pm.

You can also subscribe to my blog so you receive an email whenever I update it, comment on the individual blog articles, or send me an email!

Thanks for visiting!
