  1. RPGs are fantastic at getting children to read different things which is useful in building vocabulary. I recall using the word ethereal to describe a ghost in a story I was writing in school (many, many moons ago!). My teacher was wandering around the classroom and saw that I had used that word correctly. He was so shocked that I knew such a word and his reaction so extreme that I was initially convinced that I had used it incorrectly. I (naturally) immediately clammed up and got super nervous!
  2. The internet ensures that there is always someone in my life who gets it. Group hug! Technically, given you have been "doing" art since you were a child - wouldn't art be your first spouse?
  3. Thanks for the update Siri. I have no advice as I have no experience with any of the options posted but regardless of what you and your family decide - I wish things work out well. <Hugs>
  4. Blimey! I have absolutely no fashion sense whatsoever so I honestly have no idea how to answer this question other than by admitting that whatever the fashion trend is, I'm pretty sure I would be oblivious to it! I don't see why this is such an issue. I mean, we're already wearing cows, sheep etc. Is chicken so far fetched? Also:
  5. Fingers crossed!
  6. There isn't any book that I would recommend without reservation as the reader should always be considered and there is no such thing as a book that fits everyone. So instead of talking about a book that I would recommend, I'll list one of the books that I massively enjoyed during that period of my own life. Kid - The Hobbit Teen - Belgariad Adult - Can't list anything here as I'm young at heart Okay, okay - I'll take that last one seriously. Lord of the Rings. Believe it or not, I didn't read Lord of the Rings until I was an adult. Or more specifically, I didn't finish reading Lord of the Rings until I was an adult. I initially started trying to read Lord of the Rings after finishing The Hobbit. However, I think I was too young at the time to properly appreciate it. As such, I hated it and couldn't even finish the first book. That coloured my perception of Tolkien for many years. It wasn't until I was in University (over 18 so I'm counting that as adult!) that I gave it another try. I'm glad I did because by that time, I was able to more fully appreciate the effort that Tolkien had invested into building the world of Middle Earth. A book about princesses and brides? Hmm. Is this a kissing book?
  7. I was going to try replying in an Austrian accent but realised I had no idea how to do it other than by going - what he said:
  8. I guess the obvious one would be cultists. That way, you could use any of the "normal" races (ie humans, dwarves, elves etc) as henchmen.
  9. This is Dutch Agent Iron from Galaxy Defenders. I've actually had him finished for a while but hadn't completed the base (instead spending my time painting a different mini!). I finally finished the base so here is the completed Agent Iron. Overall, I'm getting better at finding that mix of quality and speed that I'm happy with and as a whole, I'm fairly happy with the paint job (but have to admit that I really need more practice painting black armour).
  10. That's easy - the unicorn would win. Nevermind a gorilla, even a dire ape has lower stats than the unicorn!
  11. Judging from the fact that it isn't openly available in HK, I'm going to guess it's illegal here. The fact that I'm guessing should probably tell you all you need to know about whether I have any interest in it. As to the question, that's easy - jokemixter. <badum tish>
  12. I watch Critical Role on Geek n Sundry (if you have never heard of it, it's basically a group of voice actors playing D&D), and this is how Matt Mercer, the GM, runs skill challenges. I always felt that the skill challenges on Critical Role were very well done and very exciting.
  13. My last move was approx 12 years ago. As to my next? Part of me hopes the answer is Never. I detest moving home. I hate everything about it from looking for a new flat, to throwing away unwanted crap, packing up wanted crap and arranging for it all to be moved to the new place then having to unpack it all and put it away properly. Blech. Even the thought of it makes me slightly sick in the stomach...
  14. I'm in Hong Kong and we have a relatively simple tax system which in itself is great.
  15. I just found it by googling for mandolin kitchen! Have never seen one of those before but it looks super fun and handy! Wonder why we don't have them in HK...
