    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    In many school districts in the Midwest, football not only pays for itself, but provides net income for the district.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    I did not know you could cook bacon by setting it on fire. I shall have to try this... when the wife is not around to punish me for mistreating bacon.
  4. Well, I don't want to derail the acquisitions thread with a paint line war. I picked up some metal coins from the Broken Token for 7 Wonders; marvelous how much nicer they feel in the hand over the card board tokens that come with the game. Highly recommend them.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Wolf spider, maybe. They can look scary, but are really not. No web though. Was it in a web or just hanging out on the building?
  6. I have the S75 Metal n' Alchemy Steel Series and am not impressed. I find both the Black Metal and Speed Metal to be too thin and to not cover well. However the Thrash Metal is a nice color and does cover well. Heavy Metal also does a good job. I have yet to try the others in the set. For base coating metallic with good coverage I find Game Color to be the best. All subjective, of course; YMMV.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Found this on-line, interesting analysis of Russian fairy story structure. Seems to be a logical coding grammar that can be used to construct plots for new fairy stories: http://bactra.org/weblog/algae-2018-08.html

    Secret metal release

    Wish granted?
  9. Dice Tower has a paid demo video of this.
  10. Played Tiny Epic Quest and Century: Eastern Wonders on Saturday. TEQ was fun if a bit confusing on the first play through. After you have played it through once subsequent games should be pretty casual and go rather quickly, and it definitely was entertaining with multiple victory strategies. C:EW only looked complicated, after a couple of turns it went quickly, as long as everyone is paying attention and planning during the other players' turn. You dont want to play this with a group of ADD sufferers. I'm interested in tryiing the combined Eastern Wonders / Spice Road version.

    Grey Bones require primer?

    Same plastic, only difference is the color. So as long as you wash them first, yes.

    Reaper MSP HD... washes?

    I have that paint too, and it is very strange. I use GW Dryad Bark as my go-to flat, dark brown paint, mainly because it is available everywhere. The Reaper MSP Umber Brown makes a decent first coat on Bones though, it really makes the details pop.

    Bones Weapon Sprue Conversion

    So here are a few of the Bones weapon sprue conversions I've done. 14069 Sir Malcolm, metal figure, opaque gray hammer. (Please forgive the chipped paint; this one has been done for a while and used in games.) 77413 Margara, Bones figure, clear red hammer. 77417 Ivar, Bones figure, clear red hammer. As a side note to anyone who is looking to paint this figure, the detail on the chain mail is very shallow. And a Wizards of the Coast Renegade Warlock, plastic figure, clear purple staff. All in all, easy conversions. I'm looking forward to doing some with the swords and shields.

    Best Version of DnD?

    For a new DM you might want to look at Tales of the Yawning Portal. It has several adventures, from level 1 all the way through level 11, and can be broken up allowing for the DM's own adventure ideas.
