"Aye, I might be interested in joining the militia, as I came here to help defend the town against the orcs.  Just as the festival is still going on, let;s leave that discussion to another day."

 

He then heads off to buy a few apples, one for him and one for Falgar.

Beorht chimes in..."I'm willing to do what it takes to see good triumph over evil.  If that means helping the town from within the ranks of the militia, or just a friendly adventurer, either way is fine with me."

"Of course I will assist you again.  you helped with my magic and with my finds.  I will be happy to help protect my adopted home"

 

"On the other hand, you probably don't want to be standing in front of me on the walls..."

"Ah yes, I thought I've seen you at some of the drills." Rodrik says to Branwyn

 

"It sometime is hard to put faces amongst the volunteers that make up the milita." he chuckles.

 

His brother, Kurst really doesn't say much, he kinda hangs back & walks amongst the other guards.

 

Anyone that mingles you gain this while mingling with the crowd:

 
  “The hopeknife is more than a weapon—it’s a symbol. To Trunauans, earning your hopeknife is a mark of your place in the community. When you earn your hopeknife, it means you are wise enough to make adult decisions, old enough to know what it means to fear, and strong enough to protect your neighbors, even if it costs you your own life.â€
 
“Even though she’s the Chief Defender’s daughter, Ruby has to pledge to uphold the Standing Vow in order to receive her hopeknife, just like the rest of us. She must agree to hold Trunau against all comers and to never forfeit her homeland willingly. That is the Vow.â€
 
“Rumor has it that Rodrik Grath is next in line for the position of patrol leader after his old man Jagrin retires. Jagrin’s a good commander, but he’s getting old, and it might be time for some new blood in the militia’s leadership.â€
 
“Shame about the graffiti all over town. The militia’s got better things to do than clean up youngsters’ messes, but even stranger is how long it lasts. Try as one might, soap and water don’t do a thing to those marks!â€
 
“Have you read Rodrik Grath’s latest work, ‘The Other Side of Contempt’? He’s our own home-grown writer. It’s a controversial poem, but that’s what makes Rodrik’s writing so strong—he’s not afraid to push limits.â€
 
 
If anyone has anything else, the night passes with everyone having a great time. If anyone doesn't have a place to stay for the night, the most common place to stay is the Ramblehouse, a boarding inn. Also it's the only inn in town.  ^_^ Anyone local obviously has a place to stay, unless stated otherwise.

Rikki retires to the Ramblehouse for the night, pondering the things he picked up about town. The graffiti was the most interesting to him. He knew a few things about dyes. It was one of the things his village traded in, and that it would not come off was of an interest to him. If it was something that held strong with wear, he would like to learn what it was, and if it was magic of some kind, well that could be interesting too, but more interesting would be the why. After he was rested up from the day, he would be most interested in going out to learn more, and above all, to see for himself.

" Well friends," says Ragnar. "It was a glorious day. Perhaps we can meet for breakfast in the morning at the Ramblehouse?"  And with that he strolls towards the Ivory Hall, whistling a little tune.

Thomlin is curious about the graffiti.  On his way back to the Ramblehouse he keeps an eye out for any examples of it.  If he can't find any along the way (or he can not any sense out of it) he will table the matter until the morning and head off to sleep..

Branwyn will make her way to her own home after the party. She was delighted they could recall her slightly from the militia drills. Her silence was mostly due to her own shyness when dealing with people. She smiled as she thought on how much she enjoyed this much rowdier place compared to her own quiet and ordered place she had grown. This graffiti worried her though as it was odd it was not removable.

 

Some things were just gossip, but it still gossip could give insight in how people thought of others.

Kirinto is also very curious about the graffiti. As the festivities wind Down and people grow used to the dancing lights he will agree that breakfast sounds like a great idea and then actively seek out some of this graffiti, using detect magic on it to determine if it is enchanted in some fashion and if there is anything nefarious about it.

 

If he stars to wander too far off the beaten path, he will cast mage shield just to be on the safe side.

 

Assuming he finds some: detect magic with a 13+8 for a spell craft check.

 

For added light he will have dancing lights set as a humanoid figure standing slightly forward and to his right. If there is any sign of danger he will have the light move away from his position and wink out on reaching maximum range and he will attempt to hide and see who is coming.

Kirinto

 

You make your way out of the area & the party fades into the background. You make your way down the streets & after quite awhile searching, you see on the South Tower (Area E) a large marking, it is facing toward the east. The markings appear to be 2 crossed white swords or crosses (they point downward). The odd thing is the marking is 30 feet tall & 10 feet high on a garrisoned tower! There is no way you can get into the tower thou as it is manned by armed guards.

 

Trying to find other markings comes up fruitless until you make your way all the way up to Sanctuary, the temple dedicated to the goddess Iomedea. You see the same crude symbol painted on the rock behind the temple (the small rock making up the wall). This one you can make your way to it.

 

You cast the spell, it doesn't show up as magical.

 

There are people milling about, but none seem to notice you.

With a shrug, kirinto will study the image and copy it into his notes. Then head home until morning where he will meet up with the others for breakfast

He was a light sleeper, and the sounds of the Innkeeper and staff getting the day started roused him from his sleep. It was still dark in this room, he guessed it might just be around dawn, with the sun not yet high enough to reach through the windows, but that was fine. Darkness was no issue to him. Quickly he dressed and as silent as a shadow, and nearly as invisible, he made his way, not down to the common room but up. Quite confident in his ability to not wake anyone (stealth check=25) and even more confident in his ability to climb (taking 10 for an 18) he sought the roof, from which he would greet the dawn as was fitting for a follower of Sarenrae.

Just a touch before dawn, Kirinto will wake to his studies eagerly drawing the magic to him and making it his own again.  At true dawn arrives, he will make his way over to the Ramblehouse for a meeting with the new friends he met at the party last night.

      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.
