    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Funny thing is, this is the cleric. Also, the DM and player in question are coworkers - kind of hard for me to say much of anything at all.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So, I just quit the only D&D group I was a player in. There was one player whose "Lawful Good" character consistently acted as if he were Chaotic Evil, and this same player tended to act like his player was him. Generally, he ignored the role play aspect of D&D, and I found it very, very frustrating to the point that last night was the last straw. I still have Starfinder and D&D groups I'm DMing, I'm just not playing anymore. The worst part is, I really like the DM and think he's doing a great job - he just has a player that is continually undermining him. This DM is moderately new too, so he's struggling to figure out how to deal with that player.

    My plan is to match 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 across my graveyard - that way, it can be symmetrical, but I can still have all the styles! Don't have the box...but I'll probably do sandwich bag back into drawers.

    I just counted the number of pillars for a single set - 10, if you include the 2 on the gate. So, you need 20 in total. The core comes with 5*6 = 30, so you should be good. I'm not sure how many columns come with the extra walls, but it is probably safe to say that you are both good - since I presume, if anything, it comes with less columns than the graveyard set. As my math above suggests, the 30 toppers you get from core should be enough, unless you want matching. Anyone who wants all their toppers to match will have to get extras. Also, yes, I did rip open my bag of fences from the graveyard set in order to count...now to find a new storage method...
  5. @Ulfheathen - I'm so jealous of that bust.

    03866 Bryn Half Elf Rogue

    So, Mr. Mouse and I were excited when Bryn, Half Elf Rogue was released, since my middle name is Bryn. So, I'm painting her up as me, to a point. Here she is, her main body basecoated. Working on the highlights and shadows on her upper vest.

    Thanks @Cyradis! I'll have to figure out a good color for the stippling - the highlight color and basecoat on that color, per the Vallejo leather kit, are really close together. Also, I just realized - it has been roughly a year since I started painting! I'll probably be trying to finish and base her tonight, if I can. Maybe put her next to one of my first human minis for comparison...

    That's great! My mom is doing Keto - she's actually down to my size o.O. It's amazing. She isn't doing much exercise, either. So, you can do it! Keto does seem amazing, even if it isn't for everyone. For me, brain weasels like to stop me from exercising...I think they know it will poison them... Not overeating is a great way to lose weight! There are a couple of other good ways to limit overeating: - Don't multitask. If you don't focus on the food, you don't tend to register how much you're eating. A good example of this is popcorn at the theater - have you ever reached into your popcorn, only to be surprised that it was empty? This is because you don't even notice you're eating, to a point, causing you to just habitually consume more. - Use a smaller plate. When eating at home, use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate for your food. You may have to get up for seconds, but it makes you much more conscientious about how much you are eating. - Eat slower. Your stomach takes a while to tell your brain it's full, due in part to the long process it takes to get to the stomach. - Use multiple, small plates. This goes hand in hand with other three, making much of the advice easier to follow. In many Asian countries, a different small plate or dish is used for each part of a meal. This does several things. Firstly, it adds presentation value to the piece - haven't you noticed how much prettier things seem to be in restaurants when they bring out 5 plates for your main dish and your sides? This presentation brings your attention to the food in front of you. It also benefits from the smaller plate - it is clear how much you are eating, as the food isn't drowning in empty space on a large plate making it look like less. Finally, it does cause you to eat slower - causing you to feel full after having eaten less food. These are some things you can do, if you don't want to feel bad about leaving food on your plate but still want to decrease your overeating. However, this can only be done at home - that three bite rule seems awesome for restaurants!
  9. Not exactly. I'd rather get it out than save money - I feel bad about keeping it for this long. Mr. Mouse and I both work during our post office hours, and we don't have family/friends close enough to reasonably ask.

    Hm...maybe I could use the highlight color to do a bit of stippling on the vest. Does the collar look leather-y enough? It's supposed to be a light leather. Most of her outfit is leather - I imagine it to be leather armor, since that is what the majority of rogues wear. Also, how can I improve the lighting of my pictures? I consistently get that comment, but I'm not sure where my light should go when I'm taking pictures.

    Aww. That's sad. I know the ones in the UP were pretty nice. But then again, everywhere in the UP is in the middle of nowhere, so a game like that is fun. The log book idea seems just as fun though! You should take some photos of the places you find the books!

    Ooh...I didn't realize there were bases that big in there...I was ignoring the bases, as I tend to get bases as I need them...but...160mm...

    Ah. I hadn't heard anything about it since Pokemon Go, so I wasn't sure.

    Those are always awesome! In the US, we had something similar going for a while, called "Geo-caching". Don't know if people are still doing it though... Anyway...Mr. Mouse and I need to lose a bit of weight. I don't have to lose much (only in overweight territory, BMI wise) but Mr. Mouse's weight is in scary Obese range. So, trying to come up with ways for both of us to lose some weight and work out. We eat relatively healthy, so it's a lot more portion control and working out we need to do... I think I'll poke in and join in here, though...see if it helps me to motivate myself to keep moving. I'm at 140lbs (63.5Kg); my healthy weight is estimated to be between 125-130lbs (56.7- 58.9Kg). So, I'm making my goal weight no greater than 130lbs.

    Scenic Grass Tufts and Flowers Kickstarter

    I want to get the entire flower pack...but with how little basing I've done thus far, it's hard to excuse spending that much. And I looked again...now I want all the things... ...I think I need to start basing things and see how it goes.

    Yes. And it could theoretically still be considered a chimera, depending on which definition of chimera you use...

    I mean, you could convert one of the monsters to being a caribou - one of those heads does look awfully caribou-like...

    ReaperCon!!!! Also, I'm moving in June - that's exciting.
  21. Is it ok to send the box along using FEDEX? I have trouble using USPS due to my work hours, but there is a FEDEX place near us that ships late.

    Thanks! Yeah, the boots only have a base coat. I've only finished the corset and the collar. Yet to go are the armbands, belts, bags, leg pieces, and boots.

    03866 Bryn, Half Elf Rogue is pretty dang spot on for me...and my middle name is Bryn! Actually currently painting her up as me. Of course, I keep my hair short, but otherwise, she's great!
