    An appeal for civilty

    I generally try not to get bent out of shape about other people's opinions. No one is required to agree with me, I don't actually mind not being agreed with, and I will listen to - or, around here, read - a reasoned argument through. I've gone quiet because there are a lot of people here who do not share my habit of not getting bent out of shape about other people's opinions. I have found myself reading posts and wondering if I was misreading them, simply because I felt like I was not allowed to have an opinion that differed from that person's. I don't like that. That's not a standard of community that I am comfortable being a part of.

    SeaTac/Puyallup area Paint Day

    HIIIII ...! So, someone opened a FLGS someplace where I don't have to fight my way through stupid to get to it, and they have space and interest in hosting painting days! YUS! All I need is some more interested people and some dates/times when they can come down and paint. My schedule is generally flexible. Weekends alternate (this is a 'free' weekend. Next, I expect to be gaming. And so on). South Hill Games is the intended gathering point. They have a Bookface presence, but their real website isn't up yet (.. and I'm not sure I am allowed to link it when it is). Go forth and Google. Once I have some tentative dates and interested parties, I will ping them via Bookface and see which can be best fit in. Who's in?

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Mucking about with Discord; Mr. Thorne built us a bot to pull posts from Wordpress. It's working. We don't know how, or why … but it is working, and we're happy about that. It is code black magic. I'm all pleased. I still don't much like it, but Discord does do some interesting things. Thankfully, it is also significantly cooler this morning; I didn't melt when I went out to feed the featherballs.
  4. Wandered over to Leavenworth yesterday for a nice day trip.. came out with RPGday stuff; and some other things. I got a dragon cookie-cutter! Whee! Mr. Thorne had a good laugh over it. It's cute! No may pole with an assortment of guild standards (.. well, they won't have to worry about the neighboring village plotting to swipe it), but a lot of gingerbread. I'm kind of laughing about what it must have cost to get all the shops to match. I'm easily entertained. ^^; We might end up going back; there are a couple of shops I'd like to visit again.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm really looking forward to Argent. I may not have backed this kickstarter solely for DRAGON! but... I have all of the DRAGON! and I'm looking forward to seeing this one with real scales. Or whatever it is they came up with.

    New Line of High-End Resin Bridge Terrain

    I'll probably be mentioning this on the Oracle, for whatever it's worth. Still have to see if I can afford one for myself, though. ^^;

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Maybe that question can be brought up at the livestream on the 29th.  A lot of folks here got really bent out of shape about that topic not too long ago. Instead of repeating that performance again, I think Ratmaster2000 has made an excellent suggestion. It may be harder to ignore brought up by many people. While I do like the current sculpt, I also liked the concept art, and would prefer them closer to that. I'm sorry that there's so much negativity about it though. We should be able to like, or not like things without it turning into a major thing. :/
  8. I'm debating the (lack of) wisdom in acquiring a laser-cutter. Why? Because /I cannot find the Battletech stickers I want to put on the car/! (I want Timber Wolves. Nobody does Timber Wolves; the most prolific stickerer who does Battletech is hard into Ghost Bears...).

    Yah, he does that a lot, and not just in Buffy - there were a few of those in Firefly, too. They made sense eventually, but you had to be paying attention.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    .. is it a good sign or a bad sign that that made perfect sense?

    Cigar Box Battle Mats

    I hate you guys right now. *sigh* Now I just need some of those bridges from the other guy, and … *throws chilibombs everywhere*

    New Line of High-End Resin Bridge Terrain

    They do have unpainted options. I'm tempted. … famine to feast, man, I'm tellin' you....

    Reaper classes?

    And... I have now a class a day. Most of them morning, which leaves my afternoons freeee! Except for Saturday. I can work with this. I might even *gasp* have time for a game! Eee!

    Reaper classes?

    I got most of what I wanted, but for one; considering that I had to sign up by proxy, I'll take it. :/ Side note, being able to transfer tickets would have been very useful, and I hope that will be an option for next time.

    Reaper classes?

    I have a feeling their site is going to wibble a bit. :/ Hope they were warned.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Things described in German have a tendency to sound like they come with tracks ... I asked Mr. Thorne; and he suggested "Perspektivenwechsel."

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    … is it bad that I am seriously considering taking a glass, a bottle of strong mead and a big scoop of ice cream and making a float with it? I'm just not sure what flavor to use. That mead is already super-sweet..

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm usually more of an optimist, but the stupidity does not appear to be Darwining out fast enough. >.< … or maybe it's just that not enough city folk have attempted to move into bear country. Won't somebody think of the poor, starving bears? And wolves? And pumas? And those poor coyotes?

    Sky raisins! Those things cause more chaos around here than anything else on Food TV.. .. I'm having a very bad case of 'despise people' right now. :/

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    This isn't exactly rewarding my faith in the company either. If I want cheesecake, I can get cheesecake. Cheesecake is easy, common and often just as well sculpted. Fierce, scary warriors that might actually worry my players? Harder to find.
  22. .. and balanced so they can be put on flight bases. Speaking of which, larger flight bases!

    Are there any d&d 2e gamers going?

    I have been known to play 2e; grumbling all the while because the math defeats me. Anything beyond that is *shrug* though. If someone decided to run a 2e game, that might be fun, though. (as a side note, there are a lot of 2e players on the Portal, if play by post interests anybody).

    I'm not super thrilled about the addition of boob windows to the frost giantesses either, honestly. I liked them better without the cleavage. They looked fierce, they looked deadly - danger on feet that just happened to be female - and they did not need gratuitous cleavage. If there is still a chance to have that altered, add my voice to the ones asking that they be sculpted a little closer to the concept art. I do like the demoness. I like her a lot. She's terrifying, and on her, the cleavage works and is appropriate. ^^;

    Das Schwarze Auge 15500f Female Elf Ranger

    Das Schwarze Auge is still pretty popular; Ulisses Spiele had it translated to English a year or so back so as to lure in the unfortunates who don't speak German. It's an interesting system, and a really deep world. If you hunt around for The Dark Eye, you'll find the books. … I had no idea there were minis made, though. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one, she looks pretty cool already.
