Rain is just about done here. Managed to drag the girls for a walk. The party tonight was a blast. Sadly, it's just Wednesday. Hope I can get some solid sleep tonight...

At least it will be a small hole to dig....<_<


Getting rather windy here.  Not a lot of rain yet though.

Things like this are the reason that if it's at all possible, I'll take the time to go to the place in person. Much harder to ignore me when I'm in your office.:devil:



Ahhh, let me introduce you to what the Canadian Revenue Agency did a decade ago...  You walk in, it's pretty much a row of phones now instead of people in their offices... 


I'd show a photo, but I try to avoid the pink palace. 


....For those that don't know about it, we call Canada Place here in Edmonton, Alberta the "pink palace" due to the window coating they went with on that government building...

It rained first, then the wind hit and tore all the leaves off of everything. Sounds like the window is being repeatedly pun ched by the North Wind. So, pretty standard. According to the old brass barometer we keep in the window the pressure fell to about 984 mb which, to be fair, is a pretty decent drop. 


At least you can hear your Kender upon approach? If you can hear her you can defend your stuff from filchy fingers :ph34r:


Ooof, that is quite the pressure drop! no wonder you have a bit of wind.  I miss those type of storms.  When the winds get that high out here, everybody starts worrying about tornados so they are never just fun to listen to the storm and the wind howl and tell scary stories to.  I feel for the those on ships when one of those comes in though, those are a rough ride!

How plausible is this NPC that I have? Modified a little bit from official rules, but... I think fun.


~50 year old weaver. She's in the slums, but well regarded there. She's kind, and people like to visit her. She has no idea that she's a 10th level favored soul (spontaneous casting divine magic user). She's blessed by fate, despite her situation in the slums. Instead of getting wings later on, I'm giving her a spider as a familiar - she's a weaver, after all. They don't usually get familiars, but I think she needs one. Just a strangely long lived bug that she talks to, and who sometimes talks back. They're friends.


The catch is that she has no idea that she's healing people. She just thinks she gets messages from the gods due to prayer, and she's just a comforting person. Her spell selections are all divination spells that can determine if an action will be good or bad, or if someone is well or not, and healing or protection spells that veer away from cures but into being well rested, or curing diseases and afflictions - things that aren't gaping wounds. Scars mend when she touches a person.


Her favored soul energy resistance (fire and cold)? Pssh. That's just her being tough, and resilient against bad weather. Hard to make her too hot or too cold.


Goal is to give the party someone to meet who is kinda creepy but 100% benevolent and will help them as she thinks she can. Won't unload heals on them because she doesn't know how (at least not on purpose), but she'll give them lots of encouragement and some of their debuffs will mysteriously fade.




I like it but I would have the gods gift her with some sort of delay to the healing spells:  maybe they have to leave her aura before they activate, maybe there is a short term illusion that triggers and keeps them from noticing until they leave or until a time expires.  that way you can keep them guessing about the source of the healing.  Consider the entertainment available if, by chance, they get attacked by something only to realize they have been healed and start chasing certain gang members to attack them so they can be healed... and of course it doesn't work because that's not the source.  then something else works.  you can have a lot of fun with this and all the time they are visiting with the old lady because she's helping them with information.  With luck it can be multiple sessions before they connect the two...

You get off lightly, I live with one (my son) - their names even start with the same letter!


He also does not stop talking and has no brain-to-mouth filter. Gets him into all sorts of trouble with his older sister, and makes it impossible to keep something secret if he knows about it (his older sister isn't much better, but she's at least quiet sometimes)…

Oooooohhh! kiddies acting like kender.  I have one of those too!  with time and patience you can tune them out.  learn the secrets of timed grunts and nods.  it works very well to make them think they are being paid attention to without having to do so.

This whole week has been a parade of writing and reviewing business documents, and re-arranging schedules at work.


Once upon a time I was an engineer, and, I fancy, a pretty decent one.


Never get promoted. :zombie:


Yes. I did this to myself. I still stand by the life advice.

As far as weather goes, last night we had quite a storm, with high winds and heavy rain.

Today is pretty dry, but cooler than yesterday, and still very windy.

Oh, yeah, he’s pretty annoying. I only watched them because I wanted to hear what nonsensical stuff he was trying to ruin the movies with. Like I said about his video in tangled, it was too weak to matter. While the frozen one was good, because I already hate the trolls. And the Moana one managed to add another layer to that story which appreciate. I didn’t watch his other videos though.

*GASP!!* Are you saying that Frozen was formulaic?! ::o:


That's ALL in purple, baby!


 But I may need to see the one for Moana.


One block away, Westbrook had a BIG power outage.


But our block was fine.

Somebody beat me to the Bounty Board idea on DM's Guild. ::(:


I mean, amost exactly.


The general concept is a pretty old one (kind of like "mystery stories"). As long as your adventures aren't the same, I think you would be fine.


As a GM, once the idea is established, having more variety makes it more attractive, not less.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 


      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange
      Lemon Yellow
      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
      Anyways, onto the rolls!

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

      And here he is ready for the paint.

      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

    • By InvisibleThumb
      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.

      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...

      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.

      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!

      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
