  1. I dunno, Cobra Commander looking pretty cute lately. 🤔
  2. It’s all very technical but basically boils down to a certain political extremism/religious rambling/nudity ratio that only the most sophisticated AIs can calculate and identify in real time.
  3. That made me think, and I had to check: Surely enough, there’s already a d20 waffle iron.
  4. So my (modified) #dungeon23 is going all right, but last couple days I decided I was kind of light on map and heavy on description, so I supplemented with some little drawings, and, well… nice reminder that I cannot draw for squat. 😅
  5. Hiding things from ourselves is a family tradition around here, and then when we do it we like to get all paranoid and think somebody must’ve stolen what we can’t find. The less valuable the object the better.
  6. Ok, I see some drawbacks and all, but… why do I want this in my house so badly?
  7. Good afternoon! I find myself obsessed of late with Pharaoh’s magicians and that that would make either for a great subject/conceit for a novel or else a pretty kicking band name. That is all.
  8. So I’ve been selling some stuff and shopping around waaaaaay too much in a favorite FB RPG sales group, and tl;dr the other day I picked up a lot of nine old d20 modules for, like, 40 bucks shipped, which was a great deal, but there was one book in particular that made it a must-have for me: I was vaguely aware that this existed but never had seen it in person, so a neat find.
  9. Out of curiosity I downloaded the pic and tried to blow it up but the resolution isn't high enough to actually read it. The first character looks like a Letter C so the answer is "probably not". GEM Lol. Can’t remember what the name on the tag was, but I think his first name was Eugene… I also just learned Tim Russ was also the “We ain’t found broccoli!” guy in Spaceballs, which is the most amazing thing I’ve ever heard.
  10. Spotted a young Lt. Tuvok working security at the mall on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air before he landed the position on the Voyager…
  11. Are bomb checks a new thing, or did I just never catch one? It’s been nearly 15 years since I’ve flown.
  12. Troll Lord Games is doing a flash sale to clear out their 5e stock, if that’s anybody’s bag… I’ve been divesting myself of 5e goods, but I felt compelled to snatch some stuff up.
  13. We don’t have Costco neat enough here, but this sounds perfect for my mom. She has a very restrictive diet and really likes sticky white rice, but she doesn’t have a good single-serving option.
  14. More a lack of energy and need, really. And eyesight! I still enjoy painting on the rare occasions I do it, but my days of trying to crank out dungeon fodder and NPCs and stuff for games are behind me, alas. Definitely also have too many though lol. I’ve been trying to break my habit of collecting things just to collect.
  15. I 2022ed a receipt earlier, and, well. Sad/momentous/bittersweet day as I finally sold off the last big glut of loose Bones minis I had sitting around. But in the other hand, think we’re gonna do a paint night at the FLGS, so I might actually paint something for once.
  16. Neighbors been firing guns all day here. Pretty regular holiday occurrence in this part of the countryside. They’re at least bright enough not to do it indiscriminately…
  17. Wew. I just sold something on eBay for the first time in ages—guess I should’ve paid more attention to the fees. They’re apparently up to 14-point-some odd percent on their fees, which they charge on the sales tax they collect too, plus a closing fee. Out $6.49 on a $40 sale before I even get around to paying the free shipping. Rough. Back to the FB sales groups, I guess. Reminds me of the videos I keep seeing of the guy with the “pet” coyote… people out there will really do some stuff.
  18. The sun is out. The sun is oooout. No more freezing temps for a while now, which is good news for water pipes around here. Grant writing is a highly valued skill, knowing the ins and outs of doing everything right to get those big state dollars…
  19. I’m really looking forward to this set. I love Loke and have backed everything they’ve done for a while now (though haven’t used it nearly enough), but this is all looking pretty spectacular.
  20. Hello, hello. It’s yer boy, Marvin, checking in with bad news… which seems like all I ever do anymore… but a few of y’all might remember my corgi, Vali. I used to post about her now and then. She unexpectedly left me today after a brief illness—or a brief bout of bad symptoms, anyway. She had kidney failure. She was the first dog that was “my” dog—she actually picked me out, for whatever unfathomable reason; I was going to take her brother from the litter, but she ran him off and sat down on my foot and wouldn’t leave—and we had a good, if too short, ten years together. Couldn’t have asked for a better, sweeter, or more faithful companion. So I’ve been rekt today, of course. Tika, her Aussie little sister, keeps looking for her. We’re pitiful! But we’re okay. Sorry to pop in and be a downer, but I’m celebrating her life pretty much everywhere I’ve ever mentioned her I guess lol. Hope all y’all are doing well and are staying warm and have had very merry Christmases and so on. On a lighter note, I’ll share the Christmas present my aunt and her boyfriend gave me… it’s simultaneously the most thoughtful and most hilariously boomer gift I’ve ever received: I’ve seen this sort of style in American flags and guns and biker stuff &c. themes; and now I’ve seen it themed for D&D. 🤗
  21. Howdy howdy, everybody. Strange feeling, tonight. Visited the friendly (not so) local game store for the first time in a while and sold a bunch of dragon minis to a guy I was playing D&D with before the group swelled up and I bailed. I was kinda bummed. All Reaper, but I’ll never paint them and have started working toward liquidating a lot of stuff and was happy to send them to a good home. But aaaaaaaanyway, did some shopping while I was there of course and discovered that the f(ns)lgs has started carrying Reaper products! This was once a thing I dreamed of seeing, and, while I’m not really into the painting scene much at all anymore, it warmed my heart all the same. They had a display with a couple dozen or so minis maybe, Bones and metal, even some Warlord stuff, and also a little stand of those dice jars or whatever. Kinda nice for the world to catch up to me and leave me behind all at the same time. Good times. 😌
  22. Any idea what the response time is right now? I emailed them about my missing item back on the 3rd and still haven’t received a response (beyond the auto-response).
