    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I had a dermatologist tell me he never used the stuff. That about half the cases he dealt with were attributable to folk using that product. Other doctors have used it or its generic equivalent on me. @TheVitaminE fan club. I checked the label on that Gold Bond stuff. Tocepherol (Vitamin E) was in the ingredients list. On the front it says there are three vitamins; no idea what the other two are. There is a substance called Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel 1%. It will temporarily help with that hurts-like-hell problem. Don’t ask how I know. Clearly an agent of WOOF has been modifying your chellspecker. I think I have that set. [?]

    That is a big improvement over the most recent call I got.

    Adding to the cottage is out of the question?

    There were pictures of Darth Dachs and Darth Brutus. Those are worth scrolling back for. @Paradoxical Mouse wounded her little mouse-paw, there were pictures, but those I don’t recommend as much. Can’t remember if you’d have seen those. ~~~~~~~~ Mouse, how are you healing up? I was recommending this stuff: ...to someone else today. It’s not a D&D healing potion. But it’s the next best thing. I say this having tested it on myself. It seriously speeds up healing for minor exterior damage.

    No sensible Beagle would give up all that romping-roaming space.

    That there was a US nightfighter [!] squadron in WW1 seems like the headline here. Did they hunt Zeppelins or Gothas?

    I have never touched a drop of Rum. #fulldisclosure ^ #clueless Why is it I think of Rum as a crystal clear substance?

    Men’s winter quarters at or just outside the cave mouth.....women and children’s winter lodgings back in the cave where it is warmer and safer? To overwinter in a cave like that there needs to be a big supply of frozen meat. No problem. Kill lots of animals in the fall. Stack meat in layers with snow just outside the cave...where it’s freezing. Build a stockade around it. Just keep the dire wolves and the white bears out of it. That means guard it. That means keep at least a small fire going. That means a big stash of firewood. Harvest those resources as needed. I can see a division of labor resulting in a lot of restless kids and bored women cooped up and entertaining themselves by decorating the walls. I have never heard of any paleo archaeologists willing to consider a simple prosaic explanation for why there are cave paintings. It’s always mysterious rituals, symbolic meanings, proto-religious beliefs, sacred spaces....

    I have been trying all day to think of some instance where I teamed creatures. (Rather than making custom critters...) There was a stereotypical “evil wizard” who had gathered an army to guard his lair. That battle force included Giant Wasps right out of the MM1 paired with Goblins as wasp-riders also from MM1. Wasp Goblin Lancers The Why: it just seemed to fit the Rule of Cool.

    I rotated it (your second link) 45° to the left and it looked like the beginnings of an elk or a deer...maybe an attempt to pose it mid leap with the head lowered. Is there any chance it was more clear when the cave was first looked into? But it has faded or deteriorated somehow?

    Good question... Doppeldragon: I created a dragon once that was 2x the power/danger level of the standard chromatic dragons it was based on. It had 20 Hit Dice. Black dragon contributed 11 Green dragon contributed 9. Alternating scales of neon green and jet black. It had both breath weapons: noxious cloud or caustic fluid stream. It had all the attack upgrades, foot stomps, tail swipe, and so forth. The Why: ultra powered party needed serious opposition. Animated Armors and Baluchitherium: The armors were scaled down to Dwarf size. The beast was scaled down considerably, given an extra set of legs (for a total of six) and three Rhino horns were added. Two or three suits of armor crewed each beast (which was still 2 meters tall). The Why: Next best thing to a tank.

    D&D is weirder / freakier than I remember. I thought Manticora had human heads on their shoulders and no real need of handlers.
  20. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2019/06/28/woman-killed-man-injured-shooting-spurred-parking-lot-fight-lewisville This is just straight up sad from every angle. The reason it gets my attention is that many of us have visited this location. This happened on the parking lot attached to the venue ReaperCon used two years running. It may have spilled out of a high-school party held in that same event Center. (That tidbit was in the TV news this evening.) (Btw, The URL title/headline was not as accurate as it could have been but I guess that is an artifact of early less than accurate reporting. Woman is not so accurate: Amya Alane Batie was just 16.)

    Friday could look like this: This isn’t my dog. ^ But I met this dog a couple of months ago....she was even friendlier than the picture indicates.
