Randomness XVI: Brains versus Bleach - an Epic Rap Battle in Iambic Pentameter.

Huff huff huff huff [sips ginger drink]

 

Blew my voice in Pathfinder again.

 

Got the group through the ball to the bees to the skunked wine prank then the senate vote and the (actual) massacre afterwards.

 

Now the actual combat can begin. First, the reason why I need stained glass golems RIGHT NOW. Then an evil Roman centurion and a mouseling villain ::P:

I made a plan. It all came together. It wasn’t a huge plan; but it didn’t go haywire, or belly-up, or sheets to the wind... ...(so many metaphors exist for things going wrong; it’s hard to choose just one). Usually, things go wrong.  I don’t get it. #confused

It's a covert plot to lull you into a false sense of confidence.

Beware the hammer drop.

Doesn't mean that she shouldn't start cause we all know that you can never have enough coffee.  

 

I used to think that until I drank a half-gallon of iced (sweet) tea one night while studying...I started shaking at the table, and may have actually drifted through the floor into the basement.

 

I can't verify the second part of that, but I also can't refute it.

Well, this place has always been seriously weird, but, you are right in the fact that she doesn't drink coffee.

It's not the Coffee, it's the Caffeine.

Strong Black Tea.

No, Stronger.

You aren't letting it steep long enough.

I made a plan.

 

It really was not ambitious at all. For a Saturday. It went:

 

1. Place order online from Wmart

2. One hour of PBS television

3. Leave house at 3pm

4. Buy a burger

5. Buy fries (chips) separately

6. Pickup order at Wmart (5pm)

7. Return home before 6 (1800 hours)

8. Watch something else on PBS at 6pm

 

At first it looked like it was (like usual) all going to go wrong:

 

—I didn’t get going until almost 4pm

—I found a traffic jam on the freeway blocking my progress. Somebody had smashed up their cars in a construction zone. Red/Blue blinking lights North and Southbound.

—I bailed off the freeway, tried some side streets, then! progress blocked by a train. A commuter rail train. Which was stopped at a station. But the station is so close to the road, the signals activate and block traffic even if the train is just sitting there.

—Checked wallet; hardly any cash to pay for burger, etc.

 

Then it just all started to go right. It was weird. I found some extra money I had left in the car. 

 

Then Walmart called me. It was the pharmacy. They had noticed two scripts were due for refills, and wanted to know if they should fill them. I said, “Yes Please.” 

 

Long boring story cut short. 

 

I got the groceries I wanted.  

I got chow cooked by someone not me. 

I even got Meds refilled which wasn’t in the plan. 

And I got to see the few little PBS shows I wanted to lookin on.

On occasion, what seems like like needless delay is actually the Cosmic Muppets positioning you for an unanticipated benefit.

Given the depleted state of my wallet, plus knowing that further extractions will happen before the Pledge Manager closes, my wallet goes with the term War as the correct description.

It's mumbling something about a guy named Sherman and some March Through Georgia.

Caught up.

 

We moved Friday.  In the first snow storm of the season (of course).

Last night we slept in a very empty, very large house. 

Today the moving trucks came. 

Tonight we are sleeping* in a very full, doesn't seem big enough for all our crap house.

 

*well my wife is sleeping. It is current 3:30 am and I've been awake for 2 hours. Between my allergies acting up with all the dust and such from moving, and my bad shoulder throbbing (pain meds are starting to kick in I think), and the cats chirping and banging as the explore, and my brain trying to figure out where things will fit (my study/paint room looks like a full storage locker currently), sleep is not working for me so much.

I learned a long time ago that it’s best to get candy you don’t like for trick or treaters. I mean, get a bag you do like for yourself. But give the candy you hate to the goblins at the door.

 

This was our plan this year. Except the "dislike" bag we started with was more stuff we liked less lol.

 

We had a grand total of 6 kids come by, 2 of which were my sister's kids. :down: Now that we're in a house, I was hoping we'd have a few more than that, but nope. Oh well, perhaps next year. I'll have more decorations to put up next year, too, which should help.

But with general Googling skills, we should have the ability to learn any "basic" skill in about 5 minutes.

 

I don't know how to operate a lawnmower off the top of my head, but I know how to learn how to do it, so it doesn't worry me.

 

This. I've taught myself how to do a whole slew of things, and I'm super proud of myself that I have done and now know how to do things like change a tire, dismantle and reassemble most of a dishwasher, muck about in the guts of a computer, both hardware and software (don't worry computer techs, I'm very aware of the limits of my abilities and know what not to touch lol), fix our printer, remove and install bathroom hardware, etc. 

 

I do, however, have some background as a research library assistant, so I know HOW to find the info I'm looking for. Experience has taught me that these skills are not as widespread as one might hope or expect. Even just knowing how to craft an effective Google search is a skill.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      All HAIL WOOF!

      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. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      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).

      20
      9039
      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.

    • By WhiteWulfe
      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!
      (end edit)

      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.
