    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    My initial thought was "the leucrotta looks kind of dumb". Then I looked up the actual leucrotta and indeed it looks kind of dumb. It's supposed to look kind of dumb, like one of those "a wizard did it" monsters Durn drunken wizards, stop snorting your spell components! Success, then? I already have money on this expansion. Still not regretting it

    I've been informed I'm getting those drunken pirate skeletons. I dunno about you but if my partner tells me I'm getting drunken pirate minis I'm not gonna argue
  3. I just received the form letter officially inviting me to GM a game at PAX Unplugged again. I decided early on I would but I haven't written a single line of adventure :/
  4. Welp. Not ordering from this Chinese place again. The delivery guy is "here". He's been "here" for 10 minutes. Honest. He's not here. He's nowhere near here. He was never here. 50/50 chance he's delivered our food to someone else by now.

    Personally, I've had to run too many 'theatre of the mind' type of games where all we had was me describing a room and where people were in it. I'm not gonna be mad about a missing inch or three (or five) from the height of a giant. It beats what I have done in the past where I put down a 3x3" piece of paper torn from a notebook and wrote 'huge dude' on it. I've also run those games where I dropped $100+ on a mini only to have it go down in 2 turns and I felt I had to stay quiet about the price because my players included a starving artist, a perpetual temp worker, and a guy on permanent disability and admitting how much I spent on that BBEG made them uncomfortable. I find Bones to be that great medium between "broke college games" and "too much disposable income". It's a medium where all my friends, players, brother, etc can be as well without breaking any banks. If the giant is a few inches off but fits my play style and my budget and the budget my players want to believe I have, then I win. I just win as GM. I like winning.

    Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

    Okay, I'll admit it. I kind of want to see The Color Out of Space, the one with Nicholas Cage. Drinking may be involved.

    Or maybe Sir Boot will open his own kickstarter account and back in secret

    Names? Fffft. heh. [snort] BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAA It takes me a year of regular interaction before I'll remember a person's name. I'll remember their voice after two words but their name will take forever.
  9. I don't understand this concept. Players doing what they are supposed to?????? If they don't the Demigorgon can eat them. Given his size I figure, what, 1d4 investigators PCs a round?

    Think of it this way. The more you get an arachnophobe to NOPE out of there, the better looking your spider must be
  11. Planet of the Apes was rated G. Charleton Heston's bare naked butt is rated G, the MPAA says so

    The 200 year old brick wall in my apartment seems to produce more centipedes than spiders and I totally appreciate that. I know centipedes tend to be more poisonous but, dude, I got scars from spider bites. Spiders can elf the broccoli off. I have never been bitten by a centipede in my sleep nor have I ever had to dodge flying fishing wire spun from a centipede's butt. Every spider unlock is money I don't have to spend

    You were fine. I never knew the big spiders to hit the beach or even the city. They tended to stay up the mountain where the University is hidden. On campus is where you're likely to look down in your own dorm and see a tarantula walking across your floor* * Also happened. My partner's dorm. The tarantula got confined to a plastic bin for 3 weeks. His name was Sneaky Pete. He got let go upon the end of the term.

    UC Santa Cruz The campus is built into the side of a mountain spanning 3 separate biomes. Lower campus is a coastal grassland type biome with old rock quarries dotting the landscape. Full of tarantulas. Tarantulas are a migratory species, the males will move en masse in a big horny attempt to find females. Spider Season is a real thing in California, it's late August through November, the only geographic variable is the types of spiders. Some areas have tarantula migrations (just no), some have orange orb spiders that spin 20 foot orbs (they commonly catch sparrows), some have big fuzzy wolf spiders that just crawl around and bite (I have scars). Ugh. No interest in spider minis. Them minis are life-size.

    The Dark Elves might be tomorrow's unlock. I, personally, am looking forward to what's beyond the gigantic spider. At least it doesn't look like the tarantulas that roamed my college campus, too much butt and not enough hair. Also not enough chasing co-eds down the sidewalk* *Yes this actually happened. Every year. Multiple times. You'd see this 20 year old girl run by screaming then look down and there's this tarantula with its forelegs up, scuttling in her general direction.

    I'm gonna need a bigger boot.
  17. So... I have no choice. I need to make an order this month. I need a ghoulie bag. We had one guy show up 2 hours late. He'd warned us this would happen because of work, I promised to let him play as a favor to two of my other players (he's their housemate), and it was the first session. I can always throw stuff together for the first session. The players end up at the Night Market. The city's official write-up doesn't have a Night Market but it's a city. It has a Night Market. One of the PCs was vending food there, that's how they all met. So another PC, an elven ex-noble (kicked out because Charisma 7), is trying to fence this ring he swiped from his father before leaving. They meet "Sven", a skinny-looking Viking guy who's fencing gems below market value for... reasons... and I turn this ring from a generic "I gamed the trait system to get more starting gold" item into a Poison Pill ring, an item I invented on the spot. Now I have an elven magus wondering what in holy broccoli his father was getting up to and what he'd do to keep this ring quiet. The human ninja character got an idea and asked Sven if he Knows a Guy for poisons. Sven totally Knows a Guy, a strange woman who stays completely covered in veils. She has this strange accent nobody's heard before. She specializes in Drow Sleep Poison, spider venoms, and fungal-based poisons. Guess what she is. But she Needs a mini and for that I Need the female wraith.
  18. And of course. Stew is bubbling. Minis are painted. Apartment is clean. Game is an hour away. People are on the road. And one person has called out. Newer players are going to have to learn. I don't put things on hold if only one person calls out. Especially since this game has already been cancelled two weeks in a row.

    The smells I usually wake up to are the smells of old wood, warm bedsheets, and sleepy. Because 'sleepy' has its own smell. If I wake up to any other smells then something's gone wrong: the garbage went weird or I'm visiting family or something's on fire or the neighbor next door tried to cook again. Weekend breakfasts are usually 'coffee'. Though I wouldn't turn down a good omelette with fried potatoes
  20. The National Hurricane Center is trying at least. Subtropical Storm Melissa's track looks a little less like a dong today.
  21. I want coffee. But I have to wait for the coffee maker to make it for me

    My gaming group is finally meeting today, first session since July. 2 people are already in the Kickstarter. Probably going to hear a lot about 3 foot pirate ships tonight
  23. Welp, tomorrow's game hasn't been cancelled yet. I should start painting this Blightfang as a red dragon. I don't need a red dragon for the adventure but I do like the looks on my players faces as they realize there's a gigantic villainous thing slowly coming together on my desk whilst I GM

    I voided my factory warranty. Several times. You know those warranties get voided the moment you add in any sort of aftermarket mods Makes Bones Classic models a good fit for me. Makes modding easier. It's a quality I find Bones Black is missing. And wow that was a helluva reach to put this back on topic
  25. I've learned to ignore my 'check engine' light. I have some error codes that will never turn off, they were switched on at engine start. A few of those codes are big enough that an informative HUD would have too much red light flashy flashy.
