Ok ShadowRaven  & Kangaroorex you both have +3 to your initiative, but SR has a natural STR mod so I will use that to determine the group's check.


So the group has the following


Initiative Check: 21 (beats the guards' 18)

TOTAL STR mods: +13 with the Rage song. Again beats the guards at +7


The groups stand about 30' feet apart with the center marker right in the middle. The town guard have made a chalk line where the marker sits. The party grips the rope as does the guards & citizens. A guard shouts "GOOOOOOO!!!" & everyone starts to pull! The first effort of pulling is no contest as with the additional magic of Ragnar & Beorht, the colorful marker that designates the center moves toward the party! The crowd cheers!




Party needs 10 feet to win (or 2 rounds)


ShadowRaven, again make a Initiative check! DwarvenRanger, can you maintain the song while pulling? This round Ruby will revert back to her normal -1 STR penalty without any magical aid.

OOC, lyrics for a second round of inspiration, to Trapped Under Ice by Metallica


"Pulling, we'll give it our all
Screaming, all hear my call
We're striving to win. Cry out!
We'll win the battle"

guards get a 7 (wahooo for online dice rollers!!) Guards get the bonus mod for this round.


Even with the surge of strength, the guards are still defeated. +9 vs +13 (forgot Ruby gets the song bonus)


The rag pulls closer to the party!


Unless the party does anything different for the next round, the results are the same as the guards can only get a total of +9 to their score. The Party WINS!!


The crowd unanomusly chants "RUBY RUBY RUBY!!"


The little girl smiles.

Well done everyone. That was fun. And more importantly, welcome to adulthood, Ruby. (Gives everyone a round of applause).

He drops the rope as the contest reaches it's close, and slips quickly behind the others on the team. Mouth open in his approximation of a smile, but not wanting to have any attention drawn on himself. Something he knew was probably going to happen anyway, being the only Grippli most of these folk are liable to ever see. Still, as little of it as can be, the better

Branwyn would not change tactics for the round. So when the win happen she simply smiles and chuckles.


Her voice is very soft as a reflection of her upbringing before sh came here as a young teenager. She touches her own Hopeknife and smiles at the fond memory of her being so warmly welcomed as well. "Well done Ruby. I am sure you will do well in the years to come."


She was not one for much of the party, but enjoyed watching the celebrations even she would not partake of the party or the drink.

Thomlin smiles at Ruby's enjoyment of her victory.  He produces the token of her favor and offers it back to her.


"Thank you for bestowing upon me your favor; it surely gave me the extra strength that allowed me to defend your honor, my little Lady."

Kirinto smiles at the girl, raises his hand to his mouth and (with a little poetic permission from the DM allowing me to switch light for dancing lights cantrip for the day) softly blows across his hand causing four small balls of light to form and dance around each other in a dance pattern over to Ruby where they dance and Chace around her for a moment and then shoot out over the crowd where they Come together one last time and softly pop like iridescent soap bubbles.


"Please tell me how I can make your day even better!" He says with a lopsided grin.

Ragnar laughs then wraps his little sister in a bear hug. "Told you so", he says with a wink and a smile.

Then he goes to each member of both teams in turn shaking their hand. Good naturedly needling some of his fellow members of the watch on the other team for getting beaten by a little girl.


OOC Well I'm off to have the VA remove this kidney stone.

(Good luck & speedy recovery, DR!!)


Ruby says to Thomlin


"Please keep it, may it bring you luck in the future."


Ruby say to Kirinto


"You've made my day even better, thank you very much." 


Ruby says to Branwyn 


"I hope I can live up to even half of what my mother has done. I will be proud if I can do that."


As everyone disperses from the stage, Rodrik says to the gathered party


"You fight the good fight. Good Show. Do you have any interest in joining our militia. Trunau can always use more defenders. Thou I understand if you don't."


The evening continues with festivities, the party can do whatever they feel like doing. You can make checks to see if you learn anything about the town & such by mingling with the crowd.

Riiki will mostly observe, listen, and generally remain unobtrusive and out of the way without actually going through the effort to sneak about.

      Hi Guys,
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

      So I had an occasion to create a new D&D character after a brief hiatus from playing, and I wound up rolling a half orc ranger named Logar Quickarrow, a vociferously proud member of the Bison Clan.  Naturally, being the conversion obsessed sort of person I am, I was obliged to fabricate a proper miniature for him.  I apologize for a few slightly blurry pictures, as I'm still trying to get used to my current camera (which is cleverly hidden inside my phone).
      After canvassing Reaper's catalog for half orcs and various iterations thereof, I quickly decided that Skreed Gorewillow by Derek Schubert was by far my favorite.  It was merely a matter of transforming him from a spell caster into a ranger.
      For reference, here is the miniature as it comes from the factory:

      The first step was to remove both the dagger and the burning flask and make way for his new weapons.  Rather than dig around in my parts bin for a matching set of new hands or sculpting a pair from scratch, I decided to simply bore out the existing hands and carve away all the pewter I didn't need and shape it to fit his new weapons.  My character uses a shield in his offhand in melee combat, so to reflect this I also cut away the front two flasks on his belt to make room for a shield which will be hung there.

      Next, I dug around in my parts bin for some suitable weapons.  I found an appropriately aggressive looking sword blade which was orphaned from its moorings, however after trimming away a portion of the lower half and rounding it out with a file I created a shaft for it which easily fit inside the hole I had drilled in his hand.  I like my figures to have appropriately shaped scabbards for their weapons, so I traced out the outline of the blade onto a sheet of styrene and cut it out as a starting point for making him a matching scabbard.

      Next, I selected and appropriate bow and quiver.  I also dug out a small shield, as my character uses a shield in his the offhand in melee combat.  I drilled and pinned the quiver so that it can be mounted on his back where the figure's original sword would have gone.

      After test fitting the shield, I came to the conclusion that it just didn't sit very well on the front of his belt.  So to cover up the damage I did earlier I simply sculpted a satchel where the flasks used to be.  I thought about cutting off the empty dagger sheath from the original figure and replacing it with a completely new dagger, however instead I simply sculpted a small nub at the top and called it a day.  The idea was that the dagger fits almost entirely inside the sheath itself, much like a dark age Seax or a traditional Finnish hunting knife.  At this point I've also drilled and pinned his feet in preparation for basing.  I've also tweaked the shape of his right hand by filing and carving it a bit more so that it closely fits around the handle of the bow I picked out for him.

      Next, I created a base using a very handy texture stamp made by Happy Seppuku.  Our campaign takes place in a rather wintery sort of place, so I will go back later and add some small piles of snow to reflect this.

      In an attempt to mirror the design aesthetic of his dagger sheath, I sculpted the sword scabbard to match with a raised bulge on top of a flatted base.  I left it otherwise plain, as I intend to hang the shield on top of the scabbard much like a medieval buckler. 
      Next, I flattened out the nub of his sword with a pair of smooth nosed pliers to create a rough disk shape to serve as the basis for a pommel.  I also sculpted a flap on top of his satchel.

      I then sculpted a fairly basic hilt, using a combination of styles mixing a "viking" type crossguard with a later medieval style disk pommel with a peen block.  I also sculpted a small throat around the top of the scabbard to suggest that it is actually hollow on the inside

      After test fitting the buckler, I realized that a portion of the scabbard was just barely visible underneath.  It was probably overkill, but I sculpted a rudimentary belt attachment to fill this gap (because I'm weird that way and can't let things like this go).  I then went ahead and glued the shield in place.

      I then glued the bow into his hand and glued the quiver on his back.  I had filed out the opening in his left hand specifically to fit the bow I had chosen for him, so it didn't take much to get it to fit snugly in place.  The bottom end of the bow rests directly against the lower part of the figure's clothing, which serves as a useful second anchor point for glueing (he is a tabletop figure after all).

      For the final step, I took the last bits of putty I had mixed and put them in little piles on his base, which I then stippled to make them look like little piles of snow.  Next up is painting!

      Left home in a hurry for a family emergency. Grandfather having heart trouble so I’m hanging out with him helping out.
      I didn’t bring any minis or paint so I found a local game store and picked up a few. I went to hobby lobby and michaels for some brushes and paint. 
      The paint was extremely cheap but hey if it doesn’t work out I can do something else. Space for travel is super limited (motorcycle) so I don’t want much to carry. 
      I brushed on some foundation white from model color. Since I don’t have any skin tone I had to experiment making it. I am happy with the results. I’m not quite sold on the color for the armor yet.

      In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard.  I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week.  Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed.  Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.

      Here's another post.
      Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years.  He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people."
      Life got in the way.  I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion.
      He sat and sat at the basecoat stage.  I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black.
      I am not too happy with it.  It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here:
      I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel.
      But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black.
      Here are some more shots of him.

      I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face:

      He's got a very intense stare.
      The eyebrows didn't please me very much.
      The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon.
      If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife.  I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows.  I gave up on that ;)
      Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue.
      C&C Welcome.
