  1. So, my eldest, who had such fun making the funny and erudite "Shakespeare Summarized" videos in high school, is now in college, and while time is short, has still managed to tackle the Greek classics that she is studying. I am obviously biased, but I think they are fun and educational. , is the longest, at 11 minutes, and is completely hand-drawn owing to there being no suitable available movie footage. *** The "Shakespeare Summarized" series remains on Youtube to educate and amuse.
  2. https://twitter.com/jameslsutter/status/975550946884268032/ James L. Sutter, co-creator of Pathfinder and Starfinder, finds maps of New Orleans highly unlikely and unconvincing. (Warning, some cuss words.)
  3. "Day 1: After observing the strange denizens searching a far-off realm and assisting them in locating their married idols and their pet froghemoth, several have pointed me toward their home as way of thanks, as well as sage advice about not sniffing goblin butt. Whether this is gratitude or a trap, I cannot say. Yet I arrive and remain wary." "Day 2: I have quietly observed the citizens here and they appear to be mostly harmless. It appears that the most respected are the talented and the crazy, both being a powerful combination being in this plane. I ave been decreed to be Newbie, which suits me for now. They appear to worship small figures that they anoint with color, to display among their brethren. This appears to increase their standing among the clan. I have tentatively made contact with them by offering compliments, which they eagerly accept. Things are going well." "Day 3: I have observed a strange thing today: a treasure-laden goblin proclaim a challenge to all others to decorate their future idol of Five-Headed Tyranny within a grueling time period with barely adequate tools. Obviously this is an endurance ritual meant to kill off the weak. This 'Buglips' appears to be an agent of insanity, while She of the Singular Footwear already appears to be planning an innovative stratagem for these trials.They and the other contestants have impressed me thus far, though their favor is not yet secure. As a neutral party I have offered my services as Judge, as my Newbie status has afforded me an aura of impartiality. The challenge is one solar revolution from now, but I am eager to see the glorious plethora of colors that will be expended when it finally happens." "Day 4: I have never seen such a repository of knowledge as this. Centuries of plying their traded has given much experience and talent, and I find myself furiously scribbling down notes as I try absorb their knowledge. To facilitate this I have created a 'Topic', in which I pose a question and the denizens come to lay down offerings of advice. Soon I will have all the secrets of the multiverse, to perform my own application of colors on unsuspecting figures. One a related noted, I have been declared Mostly Harmless, which works in my favor. I will use my innocuous status to continue gathering information and friends here."
  4. When you find those frequent trips to the gaming store too embarrassing... Funny spoof. My apologies if it has been posted before.
  5. Okay, I admit, sometimes the crap that floats across the interwebs is just that, crap; giant pile of dog poo. But every-once-in-a-while a photo comes along that just makes you giggle and brightens your day. So, I thought we needed a thread for sharing these with the community. Because life needs these little moments. Now, I know this is mostly me. I am prolly a little punchy from having a so-so night of sleep, but this just brightened my entire day for some reason. I present to you, Steve Buscemi Cat: I've shared this to several people and have received mixed reactions, but for some reason this still is amusing me ... a lot. Feel free to post whatever tickles you here. Share some smiles!
  6. So how will all you Sith be celebrating the 5th? No lava baths one hopes! I think I'll take a blaster and practice my 'precision' shooting so I can join the Stormtroopers!
  7. This is Micro Art Studio's 30mm Sam Vimes, a grizzled but goodhearted veteran of the Ankh-Morpork night watch in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. In Vimes' first book, "Guards! Guards!" after Vimes narrowly escapes a dragon attack he is nursed to health by the goodhearted, lonely and ridiculously aristocratic Lady Sybil Ramkin, a swamp dragon breeder from the poshest of families. Swamp dragons are pathetic little nervous highly-bred things prone to exploding. The city is being menaced by a much vaster and more sinister, almost mythic dragon. When an angry mob decides to take out its wrath by attempting to massacre Sibyl's pets, Sam leaps out of his sickbed and, well ... And a touch later: Sam Vimes is the other of my husband's favorite characters from the Discworld books, along with Granny Weatherwax. Although this figure isn't as resplendent as Mistress Weatherwax in her evening finery, I enjoyed painting him. As with Granny Weatherwax, I played around with a few backgrounds, trying to put him in a context of the Ramkin estates.
  8. ((Note, I started this a long time ago, and never finished but promised I would. I'm not finished yet, but my mad cackling needs an outlet. If you want to see the original, do a search for "Let the madness begin" with me as the author, or just click here. This is all intended as fun and humor. I hope you enjoy. )) THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW A SCREENPLAY BY JIM SHARMAN AND RICHARD O'BRIEN Adapted from "The Rocky Horror Show" a musical with Book, Music & Lyrics by Richard O'Brien THE REAPER MINI PICTURE SHOW ADAPTATION BY ARYANUN (Note: No minis, forum members, sculptors, or ReaperPeeps were harmed in the making of this script... just heavily mocked.) ----- THE FIRST IMAGE IS A SET OF RED VELVET CINEMA CURTAINS Soft Drum-Roll.

  9. http://www.critical-hits.com/blog/2015/07/07/inside-the-deep-elf-marketing-department/ My gaming group has often wondered how the heck Drow society even holds together, or how Mind Flayer cities can possibly work ...
  10. So I returned from a month long trip in Spain this evening to find a Giant and strange box sitting on my bed. After opening it carefully, thinking it must be a bomb or decapitated head, I was overjoyed to find it was none other than my Bones Kickstarter! REJOICE! After sorting through the sheer rediculous number of miniatures, I realized that I'm going to need some sort of motivation to paint this beastly assortment of minis, and the best way to do that is to showcase my work on the internet as I try to tackle, as quickly as possible, all the Minis I got. The plan is to speed paint them up to pretty much tabletop level, a little lower than I'm used to doing with really only one base color and one layer of shading, with alot of drybrushing and washes to help me "cheat" along the way. Without further rambling, we haveeee... this guy. Model #1 of 200...ish. Mr Sandman. At first I was like "OHHHHH EVIL WIZARD!", and then I started with the purple and was like " He kinda looks like hes wearing one of those sleep caps on his head... OHHHH SLEEPY TIME WIZARD." and gave him a cute little star covered hat. Nothing is more intimidating to enemies than stars on your head. If anyone has any tips on how to take better pictures of my minis, or any comments, feel free to belittle or abuse me at your whim. Also, if anyone knows where I can find the actual names of the models so I dont have to name them all stupidly, that would be grand toooooo... okay. I'll have a new differenter picture of another mini tomorrow, with more madness.
  11. I had an idle thought recently: could we come up with a DC roll and modifiers to predict the likelihood of a Kickstarter project delivering during a given month starting on the expected month? The modifiers would be based on various aspects of the company and the Kickstarter project like size of the company, # of backers, and what is shown in the project proposal. The Difficulty Class would be based on the subjective complexity of the project: Easy is 10 Medium is 15 Hard is 20 Then you’d add modifiers to your roll against the DC. Miss the roll on a given month, you get to roll again the next month. And, you can still roll a 1 even if your total of modifiers seems to be greater than the DC. Here are some modifiers that I threw together somewhat randomly. Company Modifiers New company: -5 Company been around > 2 years: +2 History of late projects: -5 Size of group working on fulfillment 1: -5 10-20: +2 21-50: + 5 51+: + 10 First Kickstarter: -5 Every Kickstarter after first: +2 Each currently unfulfilled Kickstarter: -3 Manufacturing overseas: -5 Frequent updates during campaign: +1 Professional video: +2 Concept art only: -1 Masters shown for 25-50% of minis: +2 Masters shown for > 50% of minis: +5 Production complete: +10 # of Backers: 200-500: -2 Each 500 above 500: -2 Frequency of updates after funding concludes: < 1 every 6 months: -10 < 1 every 3 months: -5 < 1 a month: -2 >1 every week: +2 Every month after the first month: +1 (limited to +5 total) Anyway, just some idle thoughts that came to me while away from home.

  12. I'm sure most of you have seen those misogynistic "male gamers only!" ads for various online video games such as "Wartune" - clumsy RTS rip offs that pander to the lowest common denominator with their marketing. Or... are they? Perhaps there's a deeper, darker reason they want men only to play their game? Perhaps it's not pandering but... a warning? I got a giggle out of this when it came up on another forum, so I thought I would share (in the manner of our peoples).
  13. This torch song was (rightly) removed as off-topic from a discussion of the shipping of the Bones miniatures from China. I'd like to preserve it here for posterity: Well, there's no verse to this song 'Cause I don't want to wait a moment too long To say that I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones To get you to keep you for my many campaigns The dragons, critters, monsters and the zombies with brains Well, out in the portage there's a PVC shortage Leaving my paints alone Well, I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones Well, I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones Speed up that slow boat Oh that slow slow boat from China (adapted from "Slow Boat to China" by Frank Loesser)
  14. During today's Shadowrun game, involving attacking an ammo dump: "Guys, guys, the windows are open, we're in a college neighborhood, and it's Kent State Day. Pipe down!"
  15. Tom Meier, legendary founder of Ral Partha and currently running Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, does not just sculpt exquisite elves and stunning French and Indian War minis. Oh, no. He has a collection, called "Savage and Sparkle," of extremely eccentric little things which seem to have been designed by a couple of young relatives of his. One such is "Slug Eat Your Face." He is a little over an inch tall. I'm afraid I painted him faster than I would have liked, to be ready for a game with our children. I also did not give him a matte finish, as I felt the shiny look conveyed slime better.
  16. My husband printed this one out for me. He knows me so well. http://www.dorktower.com/2013/03/19/trajanic-tragics-dork-tower-19-03-13/
  17. Most players will usually amass entertaining stories and anecdotes about their characters, events that happen in game, etc... and I'm always interested in hearing new ones! If you have anything to share or add, please add a post below. --- One of my most memorable characters was a gnome illusionist. He was an odd gnome, though; being a touch shorter than average, and with a nose actually in proportion to his face, many people often confused him for a halfling. He had 12 names and insisted on using them every time he introduced himself, and I gave him a high-pitched, obnoxious voice. Most of the party and the DM wanted to kill him, but no one ever succeeded. In 2nd edition, gnomes had a 20% chance for a magic item to not work for them. Well, I wanted my gnome to have been touched by his deity, a deity of magic, and so he had a surplus of magical energy stored within him. I talked to the DM, and actually convinced him to alter the 20% chance a bit - instead of not working, there was a 20% chance that his natural magic would seep into the item, causing it to explode! I gave him a very high constitution to make sure he could live through that, which was good because that 20% chance seemed to come up 50% of the time. It only happened the first time he touched an item, though; after the first time, he could use it normally. My first adventure with him was a blast. I remember walking into a room, and after the party had cleared it of its inhabitants, we started searching. I noticed an interesting shield on the wall, and was curious about what was behind it. I started to reach out for it, started worrying about traps, but figured, eh, what the heck. I screwed my eyes shut, turned my head to the side, and grabbed an edge of the shield. When nothing happened, I let out a breath I had been holding, reached up with my other hand, grabbed the shield and set it on the ground. That's when I realized that my hands were stuck! I tried pulling them away, but they were stuck tight. So, seeking additional leverage, I put my foot on the shield and gave it a good push, trying to get my hands free. No such luck, and now my foot was stuck as well. The groups fighter sighed, picked me up by my shirt, and started carrying me around. I was basically the handle for his new shield. There was a random encounter in the dungeon, and when I said "Hi!" the local encounter was a bit freaked out by the talking shield. Various minor events followed, and we ended up camping for the night. After the party had gone to sleep, I decided that I was bored with being a shield. I slipped off my gloves and my boot, dragged the shield out using the edge of my boot, then went back to my tent and fell asleep. The party was quite irritated in the morning
