People tell me I should prestige class into Cool Aunt but that requires some 1st level humans running around and no one seems to want to add levels in Parent. Instead I just keep dumping levels into Black Sheep with a level dip into Backstabbing Gossip-Broker. I did that for the red wine bonuses.

 

I understand there's a Crazy Cat Lady prestige class that has some decent perquisites. Have you looked into that?

Phew, I'm glad the female giants (monsters) thing is such a popular topic. I was kind of afraid of bringing it up again and again. 

I'm not too bothered if the poses and dresses are a bit more lady-like, as long as it's a pretty civilized kind of giant (a hill giant in a gown would be something special indeed). 

But what kinda annoys me if there are NO (or just the one caster) female versions of a certain monster, even though there are multiple male ones and one would typically build a group of enemys. The hill giants are a good example, Orcs are another one.

 

Idk, maybe it is the case that noone wants to buy an ugly female miniature, but it feels weird to me. I just hope the female ogre from the last KS will sell like hot cakes when she makes her apperance at retail.

I have, I'm missing a few feats yet. I did acquire my first mandatory orchid though. Getting there, getting there.

02622 Frulla Krung would be a fine addition to the Bones line.

+1

The current sculpt seems a little small though. A new scale resculpt would be great to fit into the latest versions of the males.

It's a fair topic. We're not knocking the current batch of male or female giants. They're easily some of the best available anywhere for such an affordable price. We're just expressing a want for a fuller range.

 

I don't think that particular ogre is the best example for what I'd like to see. I'm not looking for ugly females for the sake of being ugly. Just an equally kick elf equivalent to the male figures in the line. Also not looking for big body females for the sake of being big. The female hobgoblin is the best example I can think of. She will fight PCs and won't look out of place in the raiding party while doing it. Glorious!

Isn't that the greenland shark that can live up to 450 years if left alone? 

The one and only.  I'm not sure we've ever really figured out how long they live, though.  I remember Jeremy Wade (Animal Planet's River Monsters) hooked into one they thought was about that old.

 

It's tough for me to imagine any animal old enough to have been alive during the AWI.

Not even herring served on a potato slice with red onion, capers, dill and a dollop of yogurt? (Even better with a schmear of doubanjiang!) Yeah, I'll take a rain check on the shark too. :unsure:

I'll eat fried herring (I'm Scandinavian enough that I'll eat any cooked fish), but I don't like pickled anything (except beets).

Yes but how many are in dynamic poses and look like they are really ready to fight?..  Heck skadi is the only female giant that is in a battle ready scene in the reaper line.

 

That was the point I was making.  Reaper has seven nice female giants and none in combat poses.  Even Skadi looks more like she's at the forge.

She's nice, but she's just sort of standing there holding an axe.  I would like to see a female giant at least more like this:

True, her pose is a bit static, but at least she's holding an axe. Would love to see one in full rage mode, however.

I'd like to point out that half the hill giants have full beards and the other half have neck beards. This is important because hill giants don't shave. You're right, the female hill giants aren't pretty.

Less than $10,000 to the next goal now!  Looks like it's going to be late night (TX time) update.

 

 

I've come across AWI before from use in historical wargaming circles.

Reminder that this is not the appropriate thread for political discussions. 

 

The discussion of female giants is fine, though; it has remained civil and courteous and is on topic. :) 

 

Huzzah!

Speaking of minis, I dearly hope that Reaper chooses to cast those Kreegs' from the pathfinder line in Bones. Hands down my favorite ogres (or whatever they are genetically) ever. Truly filthy, nasty creatures.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
