    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I'm tired but I do wake up too early. This might be a good trick, thanks!

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I know much of this is stress related, But I'm tired, almost every day when I get home I am. I already take vitamine D and Zink. Eat healthy ( most of the time!) but I have no energy left. Any tips?

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    I don't play D&D or RPG's unless on a PC, so no idea. In real life? Tolerance for stupid behaviour, I guess I have none.

  8. The tale continues. ********************* Lost. Alavarez and his men ran as fast as they could, hoping the Reptilians would keep fighting among themselves until they got away. The Inquisitor almost tripped over his robes, the Colonel grabbed him just in time. Be careful Father! We're not safe yet! He supported Escolano and they ran and ran. After a while they reached a clearing. The Sun showed herself again and for a moment they hesistated. Suspicious the men looked at the sky, by now they knew there could be monstrous creatures roaming the sky waiting for prey to show up at such a clearing. We'll have to take our chances Alvarez said. The coast seems clear, on my mark we will all run to the trees on the other side! GET READY! NOW! RUN!!! The men ran across the clearing, they reached the other side and stopped when they reached the trees. We were lucky! Alvarez said, no monsters! God is with us, Escolano murmured, he was almost out of breath, The Colonel nodded, he'd better be Father! We will need him more than ever now! Alright Men! We're not far enough yet but we have put some distance between us and those Reptilians. Let's spare ourselves a bit, we now walk instead of running, everybody drink some water or rum and then we will move on! I want you all to be as quiet as possible, no loud talking, no noise! We're not safe yet! He looked at the Inquisitor, Bishop Escolano looked exhausted, would he make it? He wasn't a Soldier, but he was still a tough man. Are you alright Father? He asked. Luis Mercader Escolona nodded, I'm tired, but with the Lord's help I will go on! We will need to get to a safer place! Colonel Alvarez gave him a faint smile, yes, a safer place he said while thinking, is there a safer place in this Jungle? He looked at his men, how many were still left, thirty? Fifty at the most he quickly estimated. No cannons, most men had dropped their heavy weapons, only a few were still carrying a crossbow or a musket. Also no pikes anymore, just swords and daggers, a single spear. He sighed, this expedition is over! All they can do now is seek a safe place. A thought occurred to him, maybe if they could find shelter in one of those native villages? They might even be able to form an alliance with the natives who were surely fed up with those monsters ruling over them! This might be the only way out! The ships! He needed to know what happened there, maybe there would still be a loyal ship waiting for them. He needed to know who won the battle. Sending a scout would be inevitable, but who and when? The Colonel knew he couldn't send any of his men at this moment, finding a safe place comes first! After that he would need information about the ships. The men marched through the jungle, every now and then a smaller creature hurried away, they could hear shrieks and roars in the distance. Holding their weapons firm they looked around them when they walked, ever alert. They knew the dangers of the jungle by now, Alvarez hoped his men would hold themselves together, if any of them panicked now they would all be lost. Slowly they moved on, Night fell, they decided to keep marching on, using makeshift torches they moved on. Escolano prayed that the enemy would not see the lights giving away their position, but without those they could not move on. All night they marched, the fire of their torches kept animals at bay, Dawn came and the early sunlight pierced through the canopy of the trees. The men put out the torches. It seems we have to thank the Lord again Alvarez said, nobody has followed us and we weren't attacked by a predator. He turned to the Bishop, will you lead us into prayer to give thanks? I think this is a good time for us to be thankful for our escape. Escolano was happy to oblige, two of his priests had survived as well and together they quickly gathered the men around them. For a moment the men listened to the Inquisitor, Bishop Escolano spoke softly, they took a moment to remember their fallen comrades, asking the Lord to take care of their souls. Then they thanked the Lord for their escape and asked for guidance. Bishop Escolano ended the service with a firm Amen which was repeated by the men. The Bishop turned to the Colonel who thanked him. The men needed that Father, thank you! And now we will need to move on again, let's eat and drink something and then march on! No time to rest yet! Any idea where we're going? Escolano whispered, Alvarez shook his head, I don't want to upset the men, but no. I hope we will find a native village, find shelter there and maybe even new allies. After we have found a safe place we will need a scout to find out what happened with the ships. It is crucial to know if we still have a ship waiting for us or if Gonzales was victorious which means we're stranded here. We need to keep faith! Escolano said, The Lord will not abandon us! I hope so Father! Alvarez said, he turned to the men, MARCH ON! Walking besides the Bishop and his priests Alvarez looked at the men before him, they were tired, they needed to find shelter soon or they might break. Two soldiers and a Sergeant walked behind them to close the ranks. Tired almost exhausted the men marched on, slower than first. The Colonel didn't despair, it was a dire situation but all was not lost yet! His fighting spirit kept him going, spurring his men on. More sunlight pierced through the canopy, there were less leaves on the dying trees they passed, nobody noticed the faint smell of rotten vegetation. Neither one of them saw how the green vegetation slowly turned brown and grey, nor did they notice the absence of animals. They were too tired. One of the men in front kicked aside a few bones. Heads low from exhaustion they moved on, again Night fell. ***********************************************
  9. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************

    I'm pondering about Gauth. I might lose the wings and paint him as a Reptilian Giant for my Lost World. He has the right pose and he does have that primeval look.
