  1. I have to say this is a REALLY good post. I love this kind of thing. Too much negative current events cloud our days; the occasional reminisce of the past is a beautiful thing. Also--Factoid: Heyerdahl's raft was built almost entirely from balsa wood logs. So the same stuff Ed used to built a trebuchet to throw stuff 6 feet across the room carried 6 men over 4000 miles across the emptiest span of water in the world.
  2. Okay, now all I can think about is BABY...SHARK! dodo dodo dododoo!
  3. I am definitely in that same boat--I am a relentless hobbyist and collector; it's just in my DNA. My wife, not so much. However, I am incredibly fortunate that not only does she appreciate that this is part of my Happiness, and therefore gives me time to do this (and that, and some more of that, and I need to buy this other thing now) but gives me room to store all of it too. She won't pick up a brush if there was money wrapped around it--but she's all for letting me paint whenever I need to--and to encourage our daughters to do so too. However, I have to admit that it is disappointing t
  4. I am so eager to be able to walk into that hotel ballroom and to look around and see Our People gathered again. it will almost be like finally stepping out of a very long, lonely tunnel into daylight again (albeit with masks and hand sanitizer everywhere). I am curious about the progress on the new building, new Store, and the Pizza Dungeonria. Will tours be still be on the schedule, will there be stricter capacity limits, and overall will there be less people, but more room? As I recall, in 2019 there was still a lot of hotel convention space left unexploited. With social distanci
  5. @Rat13 Box is on it's way home after a short (requested) delay! Bon Voyage, you wonderful crate of new possibilities, orphans and misfit minis!
  6. Rat13 Box received 3/6. Let the rummaging begin...!
  7. This concept kind of reminds me of the eccentric Mad Hermit from B2 Keep on the Borderlands; its a great chance to really role-play. Good supporting roles like that make the game so much more memorable. You could throw Captain Trips into a myconid section of an adventure too; throw in Zuggtmoy (she seems to be behind everything--I think someone at WoTC had a black mold problem and is projecting) and you've got a serious quest going.
  8. NEVER--Taste the Rainbow! The Weasel must be licked! But seriously, I think my mask is going to get poked once or twice before I realize not to. And here's betting I will not be alone in this. I think that for those that might chafe at the cost (not that much really...) and more importantly the class size restrictions to in-person, that this is the best argument. In person you get to have a level of interaction that online simply can't compare with. I consider it paying for the privilege. But then I don't know how social distancing will work in those tiny class space
  9. But how will I lick my brushes?
  10. Thinking of Real Genius--"Why are you wearing that ridiculous thing on your head?" "Because if I wear it anywhere else, it chafes..." Yes--Be well first. Heaven knows if anyone is reading this, its a surety that they already have too many (or not enough, I keep getting those confused?) miniatures to paint already. Besides, wiping everything in the box down with hand sanitizer might make things harder to prime.
  11. The guy with the axe wearing a myconid mushroom hat can now no longer be unseen...
  12. I think we should ask on the next ReaperLive! if they are going to be putting random "I got a rock.." in orders again. Was it clear whether it was for "every $40", or just "every $40 and up" order gets a Ghoulie? And finally we should put a bug in Ron's ear early enough in the season to be sure he remembers to get a stock of Coal for December. It gets cold in Denton after all, and Mean Miser Dave only allows him one piece of coal at a time to keep warm in the big drafty rooms of the Ron Hawkins Memorial Office Complex... Bravo on the screen captu
  13. I see this RCO as the prototype/experimental stage for what will eventually continue to come out of the Reaper online evolution. What I see happening (or at least hope will happen) is that the RCO free classes could be recorded and/or the instructors will be able to have ownership of that collateral; resale or paid access to it for those who need/want it. As Dicey and others have pointed out, many of the instructors and artists have their own pay feed sites already that they use as sources of revenue. I think its wholly plausible that the RCO content get recorded and distributed through those
  14. Hardly going to get much attention in the midst of Pre-ReaperCOnline, but does anyone else miss the Dramatic Chipmunk .gif that Ron hid under the Retailers-"Upcoming Releases"? Whatever source he linked to is now broken, replaced by a lesser than awesome "Opps" message. I just loved that Ron (it seems to fit his perverse sense of humor, so I will continue to accuse him of this) stuck that there to lightly slap our wrists for trying to sneak a peek at stuff perhaps not meant for regular Joe buyers. Even though he's totally without value or use, I kind of miss the suspicious little
