Is there a Plowy McPlowface? And if not, someone needs to name one that. It's a tradition now. It must happen.

 

 

I think there was a Plowy McPlowface on one of the short lists, but it got out voted. School kids have no sense of irony, apparently.

 

The best part is that they have their names on their sides, so you can tell who's blasting your car with grit as you try to overtake it. We frequently see Fred and Gritty McVittie in these parts, and I've been blasted with grit by Plougher of Scotland whilst walking home :rolleyes:

 

I don't think they have all the gritters out tonight, I don't see Sir Andy Flurry or Luke Snow Walker anywhere on the map :lol:

I just came across the following news article:

 

"Woman pulled over for having man in dog cage in back of truck"

 

My first thought was: It's got to be Florida.

 

The first three words of the article confirmed it: ' A Florida woman....'

 

I've met some very nice people from Florida, but there's GOT to be something in the water there.

Lotta poisonous reptiles.

Some of the toad hallucinogenics can cause really weird reactions.

Okay, it's now exactly 12 hours till the exam. I'm calling it a night. Gonna try to relax, go walk the dogs, take a shower, and then get some sleep. 

 

Tomorrow morning I'll have breakfast, a bit of coffee, and listen to the audio notes. Then... test time.

I have heard Grump snore twice.

 

Once each time. :blink:

 

He's trained himself not to snore, or something? Can people DO that?

 

Doorknobs.

 

If you use the same doors then germs are transferred via doorknobs. It's why our shopping mall no longer has doors for its bathrooms.


For Grump? Sure. At this point I’ll believe just about anything.

 

As for doorknobs: I can’t figure out why anyone would build a public restroom door that wasn’t “push to exit” with no knob or handle on the inside side of the door.

Grump gets sick, Grump gets stupid.

 "I'll sleep on the couch, I don't want you to catch this. " :zombie:

 

"Honey, we share a BATHROOM. I WILL catch this!" <_<

 

 Just a cold, I think, but he's got a stuffy brain from it.

Yup.

 

As soon as my ears get stuffed up, my brain turns to mush.

 

It is the horrible half-way cold - where you aren't quite sick enough to call off work.

 

Ran the game with a bottle of hand sanitizer behind my screen.

 

The Coral Roper did a number on the kids - I was expecting it to be a fast battle, but...

 

Neither of the first two characters grabbed made their Will saves - so the barbarian and the ranger were fighting against the party - and did more damage than the Roper itself.

 

With a CR of six, and two opportunistic giant hagfish for a total of seven, it was fighting way above it's weight. (The hagfish's slime giving them immunity to the Roper's poison. Plus, they taste terrible, so the Roper doesn't bother trying to eat them.) *EDIT* Giant Hagfish.

 

The magus ended up Petrifying the barbarian, to keep him from killing about half the party - three of the PCs were in negative HP by the time they killed the Roper. Four out of six PCs downed, including all their front line combat types - magus, rogue, ranger, and the petrified barbarian. The cleric and the bard are the ones still walking under their own power. And this with the PCs taking a penalty for underwater combat. (Except for the rogue - who had a ring of free-action.)

 

I had the hagfish swim away when they took a quarter of their damage.

 

It came way closer to a TPK than expected. I think, if I were to run it again, I would take away the Stone Roper's Venom Pulse, and instead give the standard paralytic poison a Slow effect if the character saves vs the paralysis.

 

But, the PCs got the key that they were looking for in the wreck, and enough money to de-medusa the barbarian (currently in a bag of holding). The key is both a literal key, and the key to a cypher.

I've gotten into the habit of keeping my paper towel to use on the door.

 

I've also run into one restroom that had a bracket at the bottom of the door (just step and drag to open the door).

 

But, yeah, all restrooms should be "push to exit" just to cut down on germs.

I think I just wake myself up enough to move so the snoring goes away. It creeped at least two of my girlfriends out, more than a little. (I used to open my eyes while sleeping as well. Megan fixed that by using a flash camera on me. Not a pleasant way to wake up....) It is possible that I am paranoid in my sleep, and always have been. Ah, sleep, those little slices of death, how I loathe them - Edgar Allen Poe.

 

***

 

The annoying thing with this cold is how fast it took hold - I was fine until about 8 PM yesterday, and then, suddenly, my throat felt like I had been swallowing Brillo pads.

 

The deciding factor wasn't Megan reminding me that we share a bathroom, it was the sure knowledge that she would sneak onto the couch with me.

      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).

      Super black. Critical threat!
      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.

      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.

      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.
