  1. New England Paint Day

    Unfortunately, I got a later than expected start. I think I’m going to have to skip paint day and focus on chores and errands around here.
  2. Kings of War: Vanguard

    Is the sculpt exclusive, or just the translucent version?
  3. Michelle Yeoh is a fine choice, but she already has a long, and storied career as an action hero. (Sure, it's mostly HK action, not Hollywood, but I count it.)
  4. There are *lots* of national days. Some official, many not. I don't think I need a national day for cleaning my fridge, mostly because I need to clean it out way more often than once a year. Without pointing any fingers, I would say that our fridge tends to accumulate a lot of poorly labeled, and quickly forgotten leftovers, which need to be chucked before they figure out how to open the door to seek revenge upon those that imprisoned them in the first place. Speaking of which... Thanksgiving is only days away. Perhaps this "holiday" is well timed after all.
  5. Routinely? No. The closest I come is sometimes eating lunch for breakfast.
  6. ReaperCon 2017 pictures

    I should have gotten to this sooner, but I have posted the complete gallery of the Friends of ForScale The rules for the gallery were that "some (family-friendly) part of you" must be in the picture with Sir ForScale. I will let those who chose to stick with hands, or in one case, hair, identify themselves (or not). I think @GuyWithCoolBackpack wins the award for most creative pose ForScale.
  7. CAV color schemes

    Durnit. Had I known, I would have said 'hi'. I'm a fan of your work. maybe next time.
  8. Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    True. Gambling for ReaperBucks is probably legal, since they have absolutely zero monetary value. Reaper might have it's own rules though. Of course, I am not a gambling man.
  9. Kings of War: Vanguard

    I'm still intrigued by this thing, but have decided not too pledge for myself. I did ask a buddy of mine to tack another rulebook onto his pledge for me, so maybe dive in a bit more at retail.
  10. Happy Birthday, Buglips!

    Happy survival day! Which I can only assume is the day that follows soon after a goblin birthday party.
  11. After I die, I plan to come back and haunt @buglips*the*goblin. Given how many 20's of unpainted miniatures are currently filling my closet, I should never die. The only way it'll happen is if he steals them all.
  12. New England Paint Day

    Don't try to bamboozle me with your math. I's too smarts for that.
  13. CAV @ TotalCon in Massachusetts

    I am usually at TotalCon, but usually get buried in other GM duties. I will see if I can swing by to say 'hi'. I'm afraid I'm waaaay too much of a n00b to be any help on scenario selection.
  14. CAV color schemes

    Wait, were you at CAVCon in Lewisville last month?
  15. Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

    Aren't you on the wrong side of the channel for that?
  16. From my own, selfish, perspective, some time before 0:400 UTC. The reason being, it guarantees it will be posted before I get to work, and start reading and answering silliness such as this. (Noting that this time is optimized for EST. When I am forced back to EDT, I will hand you back an hour before posting.) The... opposite? Is that like a list of things I will only do after I am dead? If that's the case, I need to have answers to a whole host of metaphysical questions before I can assemble a good list, or a good name.
  17. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Many literary eras have their own magic handwavium that can accomplish anything the plot requires. In the early 2000's (and maybe still today), it was DNA / genetic engineering. In the 50's and 60's it was "radiation". I'm sure we'll have something else before too much longer.
  18. Happy Birthday MissMelons !!!

    Needs more chocolate.
  19. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    At one point, the office I worked in had conference room names selected from local towns. As far as I was able to determine, they were maliciously chosen to be impossible for non-locals to correctly pronounce, as demonstrated on many a cross-country conference call. Gloucester Worcester Scituate Billerica Peabody Haverhill etc.
  20. Best Version of DnD?

    Nicely put. ( @Sylverthorne too ) When I GM, I take great satisfaction in putting the fear of character death into my players, but not so much in actually offing a character. (although it happens.) At it's heart, I approach role playing as a group story-telling process. Update, based on @Unruly's comment from the previous page: No argument: If the player earns a death through heroic sacrifice, or brute stupidity, who am I to stop them?
  21. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Trigger fish have extremely tough (and sharp) spines in their dorsal fins. These can be locked in place to wedge the fish into a rock crevice, or to make it very painful to swallow. The common name "trigger fish" comes from the discovery that a diver can press on one of those spines to pop the fish free and unlock the fin, like a trigger.
  22. Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

    Have you no respect for my wallet!? I was all set to sit this round out to protect my aching finances. You monster!
  23. New England Paint Day

    It's shorter than the flight to Dallas... The 18th is actually looking more likely for me. I just have to remember not to sign up for any other games that day.
