  1. In a devastating blow to my lunch plans today, I learned that the Sonic in town is closed for a week due to an outbreak. 😕 From what I've seen from employees posting about in on Facebook everyone seems to be doing fine though, so that's good.
  2. Hey frens. I wrote an "Alex Jones style lizard spaceman conspiracy theory meets Spelljammer lizard man lore" poem, and I think it's hilarious and low-key the smartest thing I've ever written, and it's out in an online mag today. I'm excited, and I'm in search of the incredibly small audience out there who also will think it's funny. Plz reed & thx.
  3. Everything feels a little weird right now. The conflicting narratives--from the same sources!--about what's working and what isn't and who's affected and who's at fault and which numbers are up and which are down are all totally tiring. I'm still laying pretty low. Been going to church, but I still haven't had a meal out lol. Went in a couple stores maskless over the last couple weeks tho. Woo-hoo, etc. But. Having said that. I just don't feel the panic this time. The hype is clearly winding up, but I've done all I can do. I got vaccinated, which was a big deal for me, and I spent
  4. I didn't get enough Bones 5 (lol) so ordered some WizKids unpainted. I'm gonna paint I'm really gonna paint I swear it's really gonna happen this time. Been wanting some warforged, and otherwise these just struck my fancy aside from the magi; one on the right is just about right for the half-elven eldritch knight (who just got a fancy one-edged poison-dealing magic sword) I'm running right now. Little disappointed with the faces on these guys tho; don't look as good as I thought I remembered previous ones from these lines looking. Not sure how they'll do up, especially
  5. I've been wanting to try printing maps via a photo printer service, like Walgreens or CVS or Amazon or whoever, but I have t gotten around to actually doing it yet. Thought it might work for tiles; might be more of a hassle with something big as a flip mat. I dunno how they're broken up.
  6. See, that's all totally adorable, but I just don't think any of it is anywhere near as cute when I do it. 👀
  7. Ooh, I like those stairs. I really like stairs and similar terrain for some reason, I think there's something wrong with me.
  8. I think the only warping I noticed on my ship was one side of that rear balcony or whatever (is there a nice seasalty term for balconies on a boat?) and maybe one side of the quarterdeck stairs a little. Hoping it's all an easy fix.
  9. I had forgotten the magnets and was delightfully surprised by them. I really wanna figure out how to rig a magnet for the bowsprit.
  10. Aaaaahhhhhhhbhhhhhhhhh. Inventory. Everything arrived. Wasn't unduly surprised by anything expected to love--the terrain was the name ggest attraction for me, and it looks as great as expected--but the biggest surprise were the dragonfolk. The detail on them looks fantastic. Bones Black is really doing it to it. And... the ship. Oh my gosh. Even knowing, kinda, I really didn't know. It's so amazing. Dry-fitted the big parts and staged a little just to see. If I actually get it painted, and ever actually host a game again, it's actually gonna be so much fun. Reconsiderin
  11. Oh, man. That was the foolhardiest few dollars I've spent today lol. But I've got a leg of that Eberron adventure I was planning but will never actually run that's set on a train, and, well. Yeah. It's perfect. Now if I can just finally get that printer up and running. 🙃
  12. I have no help to offer with that, but I was meaning to report that miniaturemarket has a ton of WizKids minis on sale for $3.50 a pop. What's coming in the next wave? I wad pretty happy to finally get Eberron characters.
  13. I don't think UPS delivers on Sunday at all, do they? We don't even get Saturday, out here in the sticks.
  14. He can certainly worldbuild, no two ways about that. I joined this book group on FB in which everyone's obsessed with Malazan, so that spurred me on to read this first one, see what the hype was about. And I get it. It's good. I'll be reading on. Sooner or later.
  15. RE: forum troubles I generally do fine with mobile aside from lack of spoiler tags, but typing in basic BBCode doesn't work anymore on mobile or desktop and it makes life hell sometimes lol. Anywho. Have not inventories Bones yet. I don't have a lot, but it may be a little while. I feel some painting coming on though. It's been... quite a while for me. But I'm feeling the call of the wild. Or the elder gods or whoever it is that does the calling, I dunno.
  16. Swung by the f(ns)lgs this afternoon, saw their new location for the first time. It was purty nice. Got stuff: First time buying Magic cards since about 1995 lol (or, well, bought a Commander deck a few years ago but never played, so never mind that). It was a lot of cards! I found it kind of tiresome just opening them all up and digging through. Anyway, was gonna share the cards that really stood out to me--I have no idea which are actually good; I've just been enjoying looking at the art and seeing old-favorite monsters &c. in
  17. This seems worth exploring. I need my DDS replaced! Incredibly shocked to hear weapon sprues are already tossed over tho... 😕
  18. Agreed with kristof on Mac'Neill. I like that version of the character; he's in a better place. I couldn't have survived eight season of Russell's O'Neill tbh, too dark. Season 1 is generally regarded as one of the weaker seasons, though I think it picks up toward the end. Season 2 is an immediate improvement, and the show peaks shortly thereafter. 2-5 is golden era, I guess, with 6-7 silver. ...dang, I wanna restart SG-1 now. 👀
  19. Got a couple pounds of Chessex eh. Full set in each was from the same batch, but otherwise I didn't get burned by getting two at once. Not a lot of overlap beyond those delightfully loud yellow-and-red pipped d6s. First bag was especially heavy on d10s: 9 d4 13 d6 w/ pips 17 d6 16 d8 28 d10 3 d% 2 d12 11 d20 99 total dice plus the set. Bag 2 felt a bit more evenly distributed, but really I guess the d6s ate up a lot of the shift: 8 d4 10 d6 w/ pips 25 d
  20. Wootlety woot scoot, UPS ran early today (pardon the bag on top, that's some dice)
  21. DDS2 hasn't gone permanently out-of-print, has it? Really gonna regret selling mine if I can't get it back when I'm finally ready to paint it like I planned. 😕
  22. Sad news: Just learned the elder statesman, such as it was, of the group with whom I played in the 3.x days has passed away. We were all community-college kids, and Bob was a good bit older but knew a couple guys in our circle, or was related to them maybe, and anyway he joined up with us too. Good guy. Been 15 years since I saw him last but still remember stories he told and dumb fun we had. RIP Bob. Y'all all remember to cherish your buddies.
  23. I went to Subway today! I went inside to order food! I haven't done that in over a year! Anywhere! I got chips off the rack! A drink out of the cooler! I touched things! Ah!
