    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Looking for fantasy anime recommendations. Enjoyed Record of Lodoss War and its associated remake and spin offs. Also liked Rune Soldier (which apparently is set in the same world as RoLE?). Enjoyed most of Slayers except when they repeated the same story line. Tried Full Metal Alchemist, didnt keep our interest. Any more like RoLW out there?

    I'll just leave this here... https://youtu.be/34CZjsEI1yU
  3. Lots of stuff from Origins: Century Golem Edition, Roll Player and its expansion, Boss Monster 3, Tiny Epic Galaxies, a Game Topper table mat, dice, and a nice bag for carrying board games:

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    Origins this year was... different. Not bad, but no Reaper Mini, no Cool Mini or Not, no Games Workshop or Forge World, no Wyrd Games, no Crocodile Games. Did all these miniature companies coincidentally decide not to come this year? Or is Origins somehow discouraging mini companies? Iron Wind Metals was there and of course WizKids along with Gale Force 9 and a few other smaller companies, but it seemed weird. I still had fun and spent too much money, but it was... different.

    So I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't blame Reaper for not announcing bad news in advance. If they anmounce it in advance many will object about the news and will complain again when Reaper does not change the decision in spite of the opposition from fans and customers. If they don't announce in advance then many fans and customers (maybe the same, maybe others) will object to the change and complain about the lack of communication. I dont see that either strategy is more success oriented for the company. I think I would deliver the bad news when I had to and move on, focusing on communicating the good news.

    Sitting at an otherwise empty table at Origins Game Fair waiting on players for my Basic Fantasy RPG game. 8 AM is always questionable for running games at a con. Last year I had 5 or 6 players for this slot. I wonder how long I should wait? Been a half an hour now. Think I'm gonna call it.

    Question about sealing mettalics

    Another option I have used is after sealing (which inevitably knocks down the gleam of the metal flakes) is to paint over just the highest highlights with a matching enamel metallic flake paint such as Testors. Used sparingly it brings back the gleam and is pretty durable.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    I have those melanistic squirrels in my yard here in the suburbs of Detroit. The melanistic squirrels don't seem to get as large as the normal red squirrels, which can grow to size of an below average house cat. They all enjoy eating jack o'lanterns though. I also saw a chipmunk for the first time last week. I always assumed squirrels and chipmunks did not share habitats, but it appears I was wrong.

    Wizard of Oz. Nightmare before Christmas.

    Not film noir per se, but the Thin Man series of films are quite good.

    The 1st Harry Potter movie will be old enough to vote this year.

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    They've stated they will not be there but are still sponsoring the paint and take area. I don't recall what if anything was said about speed paint.

    Resin Water Effects, How to Seal a Base?

    From what little I've done with resin, multiple pours work best for anything deep. Unless you are using a pressure pot, deeper pours will often result in bubbles that never make it out before the resin cures. I would make the first pour 1 cm / half an inch deep or so to minimize any catastrophic failures of the tape dam. Once the first pour is cured it acts as a seal and helps hold the tape in place. You might end up having to sand and/or polish the sides to get it clear regardless of the material used as a dam. Good luck, and pics or it didnt happen!

    Be sure to call your mum tomorrow. I wish I could. Call my mum I mean, not yours. That would be weird.
