    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Ugh. We were almost done packing earlier but we were out of boxes. Bought a plastic crate and 5 more cardboard boxes. They did not hold nearly as much stuff as math implied. We're still almost done packing. And out of boxes again. We have this place until the 30th so there'll be one more weekend to get the last few things out of here. But there's a real good chance we won't have access to Guy With Van then either. I lose internet tonight. Won't get it back until Thursday at the earliest.

    Does Your Table Use "Adult" Models?

    I did not have many good minis for this encounter. To be honest, if I'd run it as-written I would have. As-written it's a "village" of all-male cannibal barbarians and they're all combatants. There's plenty of shirtless dude minis with weapons on the market. I turned it into a real village. Both genders were combatants. So were the teenagers. Nobody wore shirts because it's a jungle. Body paint made of red and white clay was used and thoroughly described because it added flavor, turned the village of cannibal barbarians into an actual tiny culture. There were three noncombatant adults (pregnant women) and a dozen children. They accepted the PC's defeat of their leader and followed the group for the rest of the campaign. One of the women became a cohort after she had her baby. I started out running it as-written. That tactic lasted one encounter and I needed a culture real quick. My gaming group is the type of group that asks questions, that wants to know how these people lived and everything. One of my players is a retired archaeologist, I'd better have details about how a village ran. Sometimes it would be nice to have minis for such situations. Instead I have cheesecake, catgirls, and shirtless dudes with weapons. And, just, all of the clothed civilians. So, yes, we would and do use "adult" models. But not for their "adult-ish" purpose.

    Municipal water in Los Angeles has trace amounts of selenium, arsenic, and uranium. It's just that those are native minerals to the area - well water is gonna have those minerals in it even after extensive filtering.

    One thing I'll miss about this place is the random shouting from the ER across the street. This one time we hear loud tortured screaming at like 3am. We look outside and okay, that's... interesting. Some lady is in labor on the sidewalk 10 feet from the ER doors, her man is running around panicking, and the whole OB/GYN team is outside helping her deliver. Screaming stops, kid is born, they get everyone inside, it's like nothing even happened.

    See, this is how I roll. Reflex save from the ranger. Then he rolls... a Luck Die

    Seems legit. My mother's bachelor's degree is in the chemistry of textile dyes, modern and historical. She got the degree while I was in middle school and she needed someone to rant about her classes at. I learned a few things

    Pathfinder, mostly. Any RPGs, tbh. Partner plays X-Wing. Otherwise we paint for display, for fun, and because the minis look cool.

    Friend in my gaming group auditioned for a part recently. Hope he gets it. Helluva part: Tom Servo. Yes. That Tom Servo. For the MST3k live tour.

    I burnt out a few times. Painting for money burnt me out. I went back out of obligation, I still had some commissions to finish. I gave up after I lost access to my collection. I got back in because of boredom. I gave up a third time when I moved again and ended up two people living in a 100 square foot room. Not a whole lot of space to paint. Also, depression. I got back in when we moved and became two people living in a 400 square foot room. Totally more space. Hence why we're moving again to a real apartment with more than one room. And some walls for shelving. I'm keeping myself in right now through the cunning use of a few projects. Also painting minis for Pathfinder. It's less effort than painting an army and people seem more impressed for some reason.

    I made brownies. My last act of baking at the old place. I'm tired of not having the space I need to bake things properly.

    Full sized burritos? Chipotle brand burritos (which are shorter than full sized)? Or frozen burritos (which are bite sized for rakshasa definitions of 'bite')?
  14. Why yes it IS (or was) WOOF operatives who fell into the Pits. Nowhere near all of them. There's usually 400 on that wall. The collection holds lots of fat vultures too. Those bones are delicate. Any dark-stained brown Ice Age bone you happen to see in a collection is most likely a La Brea bone. Not even a fossil, they're still just bones with DNA and everything.

    Bah. I took this Friday off for a doctor's appointment. Had to reschedule to next Friday. Bah. Now I have to put effort into getting my leave moved. It'd be easier if my manager was EVER IN THE OFFICE.
