    @Corsair https://theverticaljungle.blogspot.com/2014/08/column-tutorial.html https://theverticaljungle.blogspot.com/2014/11/lighting-fires.html This should more or less cover the concept.

    Is a baby griffon referred to as a "gritten"?

    Perhaps it's a reminder about the reliability of his vehicle's heat dissipation system. Although the last time I discharged a fire extinguisher into an engine compartment it had to do with someone prettying up the engine with gun oil...

    Managed to get the kids together for a group photo. They go out for adoption next weekend - two of them are already taken. And then Kitten Season will rear its head like a mewling hydra.
  5. I once released a starling that had been captured by The Kate Monster. While it's true that the starlings are an undesirable invasive species from the British Isles, so am I. Also, Kate Monster never really got the order correct on "kill and eat", so I wasn't comfortable handing it back.

    One of the things that I had not anticipated with the whole kitten rescue schtick was poop on the walls. I invested in a tile floor and blankets over the nursery furnishings, but the walls came as a more or less complete surprise. These two weren't responsible:

    Imgur's interface is kinda platform dependent, but on my PC I just go to images. There's a tag in the upper left of the group of thumbnailed images that says "All Images" - that turns into a dropdown menu for doing album stuff.

    Of course it's your tavern. Anyone else's place would chuck you out for showing up sans culottes.

    Don't you already spend a lot of your time on a yacht with jets? You should diversify into submarines or volcano lairs or something in a starter moonbase. I usually cut the sweetness in borscht with greek yogurt served on top. It's traditionally sour cream but Russian sour cream seems to be more of full fat yogurt, plus the beets are often fermented, which takes away a lot of the sugar. Those are both lactic acid vs. vinegar. Kitten tax:

    Is that a title of rank or statement of sobriety level?

    Splintered Light Miniatures has a Hedgerows and Heroes line with Hares.

    Well, if you bake it on that date, there will be a higher than usual number of people interested in eating it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcjiYn3xXMg The YouTube algorithm seems to have recovered from its Mongolian horde-induced shell shock long enough to bring me this. Are folks dressed like '80s robot cartoon characters covering Led Zeppelin random enough? Also, I miss embedding videos.

    Washcloths are dirt cheap and have a pretty good texture. Get it wet, soak it with Elmer's glue, and shape it how you want it (you may need cardboard underneath). It will dry light as a feather and stiff as a board. Then paint it in ochre tones for a dried grass roof. https://tinyhordes.com/how-to-make-thatched-roofs/

    I used to play that one back when it was current. If you're looking for something like D&D, this isn't it. Not better or worse, just different. The basic set is very much not a complete game, especially if you have magic or tech going on in any quantity. I think it works pretty well for cinematic "real world" stuff like cowboys, cops, or Call of Cthulhu.
