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

Recommended Posts

Reading some Pratchett while the radio was on I realized that "Last Christmas I gave you my heart" is particularly romantic in a mildly creepy Igor way.

(Guess I'll have to say Frankenstein when I try to explain that to my family.)

Back in the day, I ran a Discworld game using D&D 3e... Igor was a Race and a Class, while Igoring was a Skill. (Igoring was a weird skill - it didn't do anything by itself - but could be used for Aid Another regardless of what the skill being rolled for was. Picking a lock? Igor can help! Healing? Igor can help! Spellcraft? Igor can Help! Knowledge (Arcane)? Igor can help!)

 

Only Igors could take the skill Igoring.

 

The Auld Grump - they could also move their racial +2 around every time they leveled. (Even into Charisma - which normally had a racial -2, bringing it to +0.)

Does anyone know if silver is an effective weapon against Krampus?

I recently saw the ending of the 2015 documentary on him, and realized I have no anti-Krampus defensive schemes. 

I figure that like with other casters, a high velocity bundle of pepper to the face would act as an interruption to spells but I'm not sure if he actually needs to breathe...

A day too late, but... Sharpened candy canes.

Good holiday break. Hope everyone is well, and enjoyed a peaceful Christmas/currently enjoying a blessed Kwanzaa/Hanukkah. 

 

Trip to PA, LA, MS, AL, and FL and back again was fun, even though there was an unseasonable cold snap the entire visit. No xenomorph sightings, but lots of friends and family. Got in a bunch of reading, relaxing, and tons of fried foods. 

 

SO MUCH FRIED FOOD.... 

 

Santa was good. I got lots of new wool socks. :wub:  (You know you're old when you get excited about good socks)

 

Got a bunch of blogging to catch up on, as well as the forum... we'll see how much I can get done in the next couple of hours.

Anyone know where I could find super small, 2 to 3-ish inch, embroidery hoops? I need them for a project but can't find ones that small.

 

Ben Franklin had some last I was there but yeah, probably 3-4" size.  Was about right for the small embroidery project my 10 year old was starting.

How did the appartment go?

It's nice, but a little smaller than I'd like.  Got a second visit scheduled so my wife can see it (she wasn't feeling up to it yesterday).  If she thinks we can make it work, then we'll begin the application process.

Still looking.

I'm watching The Witcher, while Megan is killing Clockworks... Brigid is asleep, and missing out on her parents being dweebs. ::P:

 

The Auld Grump - I swear, Megan has done that same scenario at least five times.... With five different characters.

My last page was 263 :blink:

 

Soooo ... for Christmas PingosHusband gave me vols. 7 and 8 of the collected “Skin-Horse” by Shaenon K. Garrity and Jeffrey C. Wells.

 

He coughed and suggested I look at the lists of donors who helped Kickstart the book.

 

There, under the category “Beings in Black,” was “Pingo.” :wub:

 

I’ma sit down and read stuff and giggle now.

I'm among the named donors for the Narbonic collections.

 

The envelope my books came in was infested with gerbils. ::P:

 

The Auld Grump - she got very good at drawing lots of gerbils, very quickly.

Officially he is a demon - not a devil - so silver isn't going to help much 

5e Vrocks are resistant to fire, cold, electricity, and immune to poison - so that leaves acid as your best bet. 

sharpened candy canes (assuming blessed by st nick) are probably magic/holy - so better hope you have a good one.  

 

not sure what the last page thing is, but i'm on pg 72 of my current book.

And the werewolf was blind,

Last night I heard the werewolf,

And the werewolf was cryin'...

*EDIT* In the words of my good lady wife - turn that damned thing off! (I'd say it's an acquired taste - but I'd be lying. There is a much better cover version that isn't on Youtube.)

So that was you...

 

I got a bone to pick! And a medical bill that needs paid! Minus the $70 that those couple ounces of silver got me.

Oh no! I just learned that my favorite adult beverage has been discontinued(at least outside its home market)! It was actually discontinued at the start of the year, but because I can't get it locally at all I never knew. I learned about it from my friend who keeps an eye out for it for me since a few places near them stock it. I checked online, and it's true. They've had issues keeping up with demand, and it's an aged product, so they're temporarily discontinuing it.

 

I'm hoping that the bottle my friend found for me is still in the shop when I go out for New Year's. If there's 2, I'm buying both. And then I'm keeping one hidden away, unopened, for as long as I can, in hopes that I forget I even have it until some particularly bad day when I stumble across it and get to be exceptionally happy.

The only reason I need them is because I have already cut the squares and don't have excess to go around the outside of the hoop to hold it in place. I might try getting some sturdy fabric and pinning the whole thing to that and then stitching it in. The pictures are like 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches roughly. So lots of small details to be had. This project might take up until the last minute to finish.

      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).

      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.

      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)
