I'm in Colchester so not far away at all and I work at the Sub Base in Groton. I'll be in Virginia for pretty much all of November but other that that and any family obligations, I'm game.

Where in VA? I'm in Dale city.
I'll be in Norfolk for work all of November (well it's scheduled for all of November; I'm hoping to be finished in time to be home for Thanksgiving).
You crazy Americans stealing our town and county names and confusing me! :P

I always do a double take when I see a place name of somewhere in America that originated near me, especially when the details are not quite right. Colchester is south of me. In Essex. Not Norfolk, which is north of me. *twitch*

(I live between Ipswich and Woodbridge (both in Suffolk), both of which I believe have counterparts in Norfolk, Virginia)

Ipswich is on the coast of Massachusetts, north of Boston. I spent summers there on an island owned by my cousins.

 

EDIT: ... which has nothing, absolutely nothing, I tell you, to do with the Cthulhu Mythos or Mashaaf or any of that eldritch stuff. I'm pretty sure our summer house wasn't even gambrel-roofed.

I was on page 187 when my computer died. You're out of your mind if you think I'm legitimately catching up on this thread.

 

But then you'll never read page 224! That was so emotional it almost made me cry and I can stay dry eyed through Watership Down.

And what about page 237, that was such a page turner that I couldn't stop until I'd read One-Boot's post on 239!

And the cat-fight between Thes..... oops, I probably shouldn't bring that up again.

Early 300's if you must know and you didn't hear it from me.

 

 

How can you possibly appreciate the full drama of this real-people-online-reality-show-story if you don't read every page?????

It only picks up from here, matey! I expect the last week to fly past in a blur.

Well, if you Brits had brought more imagination with you during the colonization phase, we might have avoided this mess. Heck, today I spent my whole day split between Waltham and Cambridge... Massachusetts. ::P:

 

@Pingo: Quaint New England towns are all a bit more sinister if one has read enough Lovecraft, and don't even get me started on Providence.

That means you don't know about... the Gazebo!

 

HE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT THE GAZEBO! (and company)

 

Things got a little crazy for a while.

...I'm not the only one who actually went back to those pages, am I? AM I?!

 

<.< >.>

 

I'm not crazy, I just do a very good impression of it. :mellow:

Was that before or after Sophie riding a female Terrasque dressed as a belly dancer and eating a waffle, riding Kaladrax which was inside a gazebo?

 

...And no, I am actually not making this up. I couldn't invent something like that if I tried.

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

Edited for waffles.

You forgot the waffles.

 

Like I said, crazy times.

@Pingo: Quaint New England towns are all a bit more sinister if one has read enough Lovecraft, and don't even get me started on Providence.

Providence is in Rhode Island, where Massachusetts exiled its misfits and where free spirits and the occasional witch-accused from Massachusetts fled. Rhode Island banned slavery more than two hundred years earlier than the rest of the nation. Rhode Island is pretty cool.

 

I was born in Cambridge and my kids' cousins live in Waltham. Apart from some very scary days this spring, we never thought of them as sinister. As a kid, once I aligned Lovecraft's geography in my head with the real world I started getting pretty indignant for the landscapes of my youth.

 

My husband keeps making "Deep One" jokes.

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.
