  1. Have you poked around for a local Pathfinder Society Lodge? They exist in a lot of places, and run many public games for you to try out the system. Building a home group is harder.
  2. I unliked this post, just so I could like it again.
  3. Actually, my local group is finally going to bring Dropfleet Commander to the table tomorrow afternoon. I'm pretty excited to try it. I love Hawk's other game, Dropzone. We all backed the Kickstarter, and got our rewards 2-4 months ago, but haven't managed to get it to the table before now. I'm even proud to say that, after some late-night painting yesterday, I will be bringing a fully painted miniatures list to my first game of a new system for the first time ever. (Of course, I have forces for a small game painted. I'd need to almost double it for a full tournament fleet. )
  4. I once heard that Ludwig von Beethoven originally marked (some of?) his scores with nearly unplayably fast tempos (later reduced for frail, human, orchestras), and that, if played that way, are remarkably metal. I haven't heard it, but it sounds kinda awesome.
  5. I'm not sure. I mean, nobody in my life gets all of it, but I think I have somebody in my life for each thing I love. I'll think deeper, and get back to you.
  6. In 1994, I turned 18, and was forced to confront the world as a legal adult. So far, this project has shown mixed results.
  7. For miniatures, it was around 2.5 years ago: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56811-14469-fairy/#comment-948734 And, I have to say, it turned out pretty OK: https://reapercon.com/mspopen/2015/artist/Peter Shah Even more recent was my attempt to start a diorama, which is not progressing well. You can find the link in my signature, but I have not made much progress.
  8. There was also a WIP, if you'd like to read it.
  9. That's tough. I mean, I rarely know what's in-vogue as it is. Maybe hats. I'd like to keep the sun off my head, but don't really want to adopt a baseball cap all the time, and don't want to be a hipster. People should go back to wearing hats on a daily basis. I'm open to any variety that does not require depopulating a continent of birds for adornment.
  10. Huh. I tend to think of those states as "The West", distinct from the "West Coast", on the other side of the mountains. That's the region once referred to as the "Old West", or the "Wild West", from cowboy days. Live and learn.
  11. In retrospect, I rather regret not putting in the work, and time necessary to enroll in some classes at RISD, when presented with the opportunity. I'm OK without a full art degree, but some formal instruction in my youth would have been nice.
  12. Most things that will strip the varnish will also strip the paint, but carefully, and gently, trying Inarah's suggestion with a mild solvent might work. Just go slow, and focus on the problem areas.
  13. "Kolinski Sable"
  14. My last move was May of last year. My next move is likely to be sooner than I want it to be. I love our current place, but it looks like we might need more space in the future. Even so, I'm hoping to put off any changes for at least 3-4 more years. (5+ would be even better, but is looking unlikely)
  15. Wow. Crazy. I'm also really enjoying the Trope Talk series. Please pass along my complements!
