is that based purely on weight and area or does it factor in the radioactive heat of an angry godzilla?

Megan's Eberron game is going to end with a world shattering explosion.

 

Fortunately, not our world.

 

The Kyton moved the massive orrery into their[/i] capitol city.

 

We are going to open the smaller orrery inside of it, and then skedaddle!

 

The Kyton capitol city is on the plane of shadow.

 

We are opening to the positive material.

 

In the battle between Light and Shadow... Shadow loses.

 

We will not be looking back as we run, not walk, from the explosion and hopefully, hopefully manage to get out through a more typical Gate before the inevitable *BOOM! occurs.

 

If I could think of a reliable method, I would try to lure Kalidrax to the festivities.

 

Jon's good friend the beholder will be there,

 

We will let Agent Blacke be the one that pushes the button, Seven will be there to carry him out if needed.

 

All of us are wounded, though none below half HP - most of our healing magic has been used up. (We never did get a cleric in the group.)

 

I have a wand of Cure Light Wounds with five charges. The bard has a wand of Cure Moderate Wounds with a few charges left.

 

Next week is going to be fun.

I was also wondering this. I figured just one breath weapon discharge and all bets are off.

Where do Ice Road Truckers fall on this scale?

GEM

It would have to be in between the Silverado and the AT/AT. Maybe 25-36 inches of ice?

Google says 36"+.  At the low end is when the ice roads allegedly make the lovely noise like cracking glass.

A sound I know well.  As a child I often felt compelled to test whether frozen over puddles could support my weight.  I got pretty good at judging the right thickness, but it was more fun when they cracked but didn't quite break.  Breaking through was not so fun, rubber boots leach heat fast.

So I have to have a Conversation with one of my players tomorrow. She's mad her character isn't getting more spotlight.

 

I told them all before they'd made their characters that this is a political campaign with intrigue and cities and acting like nobility. That the country this campaign is set in is a humanocentric country previously devoted to the God of Humans. Fantastic racism is a thing and it's worst against half-orcs because friggin' orcs. I told them all a half-orc is going to be nearly impossible to play because no NPC will take them seriously. I told them all to bring out their snooty nobles. And I told them all to run their character ideas by me first for basic approval!

 

She comes in with a half-orc barbarian who is also illiterate, that she DID NOT run past me first. And she's mad that she isn't the center of attention. That NPCs aren't taking her seriously as a character. That I didn't allow her to take everything not nailed down in the middle of a ball fully staffed by guards! That she had to check her elf-all barbarian giant sword in the cloakroom along with everyone else's weapons!

 

<_<

 

I am not looking forward to this Conversation. 50/50 shot she leaves the gaming group over this.

Not a fun position to be in. Good luck!

 

 

 

RE: my 'thin ice' picture---I posted it in good fun, but please be careful. I've fallen through ice into the water beneath (thankfully it was only about knee deep), and it's no fun. That mile plus walk home was absolutely miserable.

 

 

Have a good Saturday!::):

COFFEE!!

 

Ate too much yesterday, didn't sleep all that well, and not hungry this morning. Think I'll just hold off on eating till I'm actually hungry. 

 

Going to visit Mrs. Hamster's family in LI today, and I've got a book to read on the train. Really looking forward to the read.

So, I've been looking for something to have on in the background whilst painting AND I just found out that 4 seasons of Fraggle Rock are available on Amazon Prime. Coincidence? I think not! ::D:

What about a limousine? See, I'm a hot-shot lawyer who just got busted for DUI and now I've been sentenced to 500 hours of community service coaching an underprivileged little league hockey team. I want to show up at their practice pond in style, while also demonstrating my disdain for them and human life in general, but I need something to shove in their parents' faces when they get angry at me for driving a large car onto the ice.

 

Tonight I give my niece and oldest nephew their first full decks of pokemon cards. With that will come an order that they read the rules included with the decks, and be ready to play tomorrow. I'll also be setting them up with the video game version, which is ingenious in that you can't buy cards in the game with real money but every card pack you buy in real life comes with a code that you can redeem in game for a pack of the same type. It also has the general free packs that you can earn in game by playing and earning in-game points, but the real cards to digital cards code is an awesome idea. I wish Magic had done that back in the day with Magic Online, because I may not have ever quit playing if that had been the case.

I loved that movie when I was a kid. Haven't seen it in decades. I wonder if it holds up...

 

MOAR COFFEE... then off to the clothing drop off. 

 

Got in a bit of painting. My 4 werewolves are all done, just need to flock the bases, and repaint 2 eyes that I messed up.

I dunno if it holds up, but it certainly still tickles the nostalgia. And D2 is still just as fun and dumb as it was when I was a kid, or at least my nostalgia-tinted self thinks it is.

 

The Flying V is such a stupid hockey play, and I loved when it just got crushed in D2. And the Knuckle Puck is even dumber...

And kids' rubber boots aren't stream waders. The tops are never high enough.

      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.

      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.

      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)
