Question the 15th of March:  I am currently writing an RPG adventure with some "old-school" flare, and would be curious to ask the forum about their favourite old-school fantasy tropes/cliches are (i.e. characters, monsters, quests, monsters, etc...).

You mentioned the number 3 ...make sure there are always threes. Three clues, three trolls, Three Hearts and Three Lions, three BBGs, Three Doors.

~~~~~~~

Taverns and inns with pictorial signage that makes some kind of a subtle pun.  

 

You could have two rival taverns The Three Hearts -or- The Three Lions in a town on opposite sides of a square. A minor conflict that could embroil or distract the PCs. The situation is called Three Hearts and Three Lions Which is also a book title listed as source material in the Old DMG. 

~~~~~~~

Sky Galleons, Dragonships, Flying Frigates = spelljammers by other names.

So far .. not so much. Although there is that 'I took bits of several miniatures and chopped hell out of them to make one' that I am ... well, technically, still working on, because Things Went Wrong.

Don't think I have a picture of him handy, though.

 

Other than that, I've modified several breastplates to no longer be boob-cups, turned a whole sword into a hot pepper, and built a couple of tower shields for characters that needed them.

I'd say that it was sculpting flames on the skeletal hand contraption of Thora, Necromancer. Never even touched Green Stuff before, but I think I did a great job with it. ::):

Yes, frequently. Here's three of my favorites, ork deff dumpster, and football trolls. The dumpster is a bones dumpster with a bunch of ork bits and  some scratch built pieces. The trolls are a mix of bones, dreadball, 40k and a bunch of putty.

Nope, never.::P:

 

This guy is the biggest thing I've done (so far...) so I guess it would be him. I used parts from 2 or 3 different Bones figures, some stuff from the bits box, and a lot of Green Stuff.

Behind on this thread...oh deities, yes.  In terms of immediately in the queue, I have a bunch of ancient Minifigs Mythical Earth Figures primed and on sticks; a dozen Rohirrim cavalry, two dozen orcs and goblins of various sizes, and a dozen Saxon spearmen standing in as Lakefolk this week.  Ral Partha, Heritage, Minifigs, and more beyond that...

Yes.  Probably about a thousand between my recovered lead boxes and the crates of minis that are still in the blister.  Highlights include a complete run of Ral Partha Limited Edition boxes and a complete set of Julie Guthrie Personalities by Grenadier.

Yes, most frequently bases of various sorts. Also, changing weapons, adding hats, that sort of thing. I've posted it before, but the one I'm most pleased with is a bird man I did using a GW mini, reaper wings, a random arm, and plenty of green stuff.

Sculpted in the face, the feathers on the back, and the feet.

I've fallen behind on this this month but I have an answer today! 

 

I'm currently in the process of modding the bones hydra to have wings to be a mini version of Ma'al. So far it's going well and there's only been one injury. I'm pretty happy with it as it is right now but we'll see how that goes as I continue.

Nothing on my end - not really an aspect of the hobby I'm big into.

 

The closest I've come is a board game insert made out of foamcore.  Other than that, I've made papercraft terrain - but seeing as I didn't design it, I don't think it counts for this question!

I built a boat.

 

Not quite from scratch. It was a hull and railings when I got it. But the masts and the rigging and sails, the spars and yards and bowsprit, the chains and the anchors, and especially the paint job, those are mine.

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
       
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
       
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!
