    Happy Birthday Bold

    Oh man, I had no idea there were birthday wishes here in Off-Topic Rampancy! I spend most of my time lurking in the Craft Corner area. A belated thank you, everyone! Age 46 brings about new thoughts: today I bought a large amount of hair product (B2G1 on Paul Mitchell product--woohoo!), but I thought, "I'm losing my hair, and eventually I'll just shave it all off. Will this be the last time I buy shampoo and conditioner?!"
  2. At the risk of derailing the thread, is there a CAV scene in the Twin Cities?

    Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    I just remembered that I hadn't yet ordered gold coins! How can I hand out "Bold's Gold" if I have no gold? 'Course, that would be mean I wouldn't have to keep such a close eye on Derek Schubert, stealin' me gold...

    New Bones Paints at ReaperCon 2018!

    @ladystorm, I had a question about other paints available at the Reaper Booth: do you know if some of the remaining stock of now-discontinued HD paint will be available for sale at ReaperCon? If so, will they have yellow labels and black caps, or white labels and grey caps? I've been thinking about picking up some HD paint anyway (I have only the Bones paints and some MSP), but I'd prefer to get them with one label/cap system or another.

    As did I! I was one of the regional admins for Living Greyhawk, running conventions and writing mods. Good times!

    Or is Pathfinder Society the "D&D RPGA" of Pathfinder?

    Gaming questions

    D&D Adventurers League (DDAL) is a worldwide campaign for Dungeons and Dragons. You create a character, and can continue to play it in any DDAL game. Many local gaming stores schedule days/times for DDAL games, and it's a great way to play as often as you want: just show up and play. And since you play the same character, he/she continues to gain experience, gold, etc. Most games features individual published "modules" that are either 2 hours or 4 hours in length, and your character can only play in that mod one time. Note that you could create a second character (or a third, or a fourth, or...) and play that mod again with a different character. To help coordinate the games, modules are written at different "tiers": Tier 1 is for characters level 1-4. Tier 2 is for characters level 5-10, and so on. In addition, the modules are written to be adjusted a bit within each tier, based on number of players (anywhere from 3 to 7 players) and level. For example, if your party for a game is four Level 1 characters, the DM adjusts the mod to make it more manageable. Likewise, if your party is six Level 4 characters, the DM will scale up the difficulty. To play in a DDAL game, you need to create a character. DDAL uses the official D&D 5th-Edition rules, and it's standardized for fairness; for example, instead of randomly rolling your stats, you use the "point buy" system. There are also Level 1 pre-generated characters available which you can use. (Don't worry if it's not quite the character you want: DDAL allows you to "rebuild" your character at any point before it reaches Level 5, so you can change literally ANYTHING about the character... except its name.) If you're not familiar with D&D 5th-Edition rules, you can find most of the ruleset online. You'll need to keep track of each game your character plays with a DDAL Logsheet. You can download the DDAL Players Guide and a DDAL Logsheet for free at DMs Guild.

    Tell us more about the naming. As I understand it, Reaper Bones paints are a variant of the Reaper HD paint, right? Are Reaper Bones "Ultra-Coverage" the new name for Reaper Bones paint, or an entirely new product? EDIT: Whoa, I just saw the News post about the discontinuation of the HD line! So, I assume "Bones Ultra-Coverage" is just the new name for similar paint going forward?

    2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo Signup

    I'm going to abstain this year since I'll only be attending on Saturday & Sunday. In previous years, I've been hard enough to find when I'm there every day!

    Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    I bought mine a while back... and now I have to cancel my non-refundable departure on Thursday and book a new flight for Friday night instead . I just got a new job (yay!), but I won't be able to take off work that Friday (boo!). That means I'll also miss Ian Markon's "Complete NMM Bootcamp" class on Friday (double boo!).

    Reaper classes?

    Oh! Right, I hear ya'. I've (hopefully!) paid for all the classes listed on that schedule, so I didn't realize it might not reflect that.

    Reaper classes?

    There's an excellent view that shows your entire schedule broken down by day. To find it: Use the GrowTix drop-down menu and select My Orders Click View Order for the original ReaperCon admission order Click View Schedule (I've noticed that if you instead click on the orders for the classes rather than the order for the ReaperCon admission ticket, the View Schedule on those orders isn't complete.) This schedule will look like this: The URL for this complete schedule will be in this format: https://purchase.growtix.com/schedules/user_view/[your personal code goes here]

    Reaper classes?

    Thank you for your help via email with the refund for a class I scheduled twice. I assumed I might hear back from Reaper sometime next week during business hours, but I was surprised to receive your message late on a Friday night--that's amazing customer service!
