  1. I dunno, I guess it was a little bold...
  2. Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I ended up DM'ing a one-off D&D Adventurer's League game on my birthday (local store had a an open table and a long waiting list of new players), as a last-minute favor to a local games organizer. I used pre-painted minis, but I'm starting to feel some guilt: lately I've been sorting through a mountain of unpainted plastic acquired during the Bones 1/2/3/4 Kickstarters, and I thought, "Y'know, I have the perfect mini for this monster... if only I had painted it. <sigh> Looks like I'll have to use a pre-painted mini instead." My goal for this year, before I turn 48 in 2020? PAINT MORE MINIS!
  3. For ten years, I’ve been hearing the same story about W&N Series 7 brushes: “They were good up until a couple of years ago.” Again, I’ve heard that exact line... for ten years. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. But the timeline does strike me as odd...
  4. I’ve successfully removed primer from WizKids miniatureswith LA’s Totally Awesome cleaner, which you can find in your local dollar store. Let it soak for a day or three, occasionally scrubbing with an old toothbrush. I discovered LA’s Totally Awesome cleaner on a roundup of different products tested to see which was best at stripping old minis, and it came out on top: better than Simple Green, Isopropyl Alcohol, etc.

    Ghoulie bag

    My Ghoulie Bag arrived today!
  6. Booked! I'm hoping to attend Fri-Sun so I've booked a room accordingly, but I may have to change it if I can't get Friday off of work. In fact, I'm trying to finagle a work trip to Dallas which would occupy me on the early mornings of Thursday and Friday, but the real reason is that it would allow me to attend ReaperCon for the rest of the time. Wish me luck!
  7. Oh man, I had no idea there were birthday wishes here in Off-Topic Rampancy! I spend most of my time lurking in the Craft Corner area. A belated thank you, everyone! Age 46 brings about new thoughts: today I bought a large amount of hair product (B2G1 on Paul Mitchell product--woohoo!), but I thought, "I'm losing my hair, and eventually I'll just shave it all off. Will this be the last time I buy shampoo and conditioner?!"
  8. At the risk of derailing the thread, is there a CAV scene in the Twin Cities?
  9. I just remembered that I hadn't yet ordered gold coins! How can I hand out "Bold's Gold" if I have no gold? 'Course, that would be mean I wouldn't have to keep such a close eye on Derek Schubert, stealin' me gold...
  10. Excellent, thank you for the info!
  11. @ladystorm, I had a question about other paints available at the Reaper Booth: do you know if some of the remaining stock of now-discontinued HD paint will be available for sale at ReaperCon? If so, will they have yellow labels and black caps, or white labels and grey caps? I've been thinking about picking up some HD paint anyway (I have only the Bones paints and some MSP), but I'd prefer to get them with one label/cap system or another.

    As did I! I was one of the regional admins for Living Greyhawk, running conventions and writing mods. Good times!

    Or is Pathfinder Society the "D&D RPGA" of Pathfinder?

    D&D Adventurers League (DDAL) is a worldwide campaign for Dungeons and Dragons. You create a character, and can continue to play it in any DDAL game. Many local gaming stores schedule days/times for DDAL games, and it's a great way to play as often as you want: just show up and play. And since you play the same character, he/she continues to gain experience, gold, etc. Most games features individual published "modules" that are either 2 hours or 4 hours in length, and your character can only play in that mod one time. Note that you could create a second character (or a third, or a fourth, or...) and play that mod again with a different character. To help coordinate the games, modules are written at different "tiers": Tier 1 is for characters level 1-4. Tier 2 is for characters level 5-10, and so on. In addition, the modules are written to be adjusted a bit within each tier, based on number of players (anywhere from 3 to 7 players) and level. For example, if your party for a game is four Level 1 characters, the DM adjusts the mod to make it more manageable. Likewise, if your party is six Level 4 characters, the DM will scale up the difficulty. To play in a DDAL game, you need to create a character. DDAL uses the official D&D 5th-Edition rules, and it's standardized for fairness; for example, instead of randomly rolling your stats, you use the "point buy" system. There are also Level 1 pre-generated characters available which you can use. (Don't worry if it's not quite the character you want: DDAL allows you to "rebuild" your character at any point before it reaches Level 5, so you can change literally ANYTHING about the character... except its name.) If you're not familiar with D&D 5th-Edition rules, you can find most of the ruleset online. You'll need to keep track of each game your character plays with a DDAL Logsheet. You can download the DDAL Players Guide and a DDAL Logsheet for free at DMs Guild.
