Medicine is not an exact science

... except in the sense that half the time, doctors seem to have exactly no clue. Particularly true in orthopedics, believe you me. They're all so bloody clueless I may need to save up to fly down to Birmingham, AL and see if Dr. Andrews is as good as the Tide pay him for.

Given what Google has fed me with other innocent search strings, I wholeheartedly believe this....

That's some serious dedication right there!::D:

 

I thought the cat WAS the owner. It's just graciously allowing it's servants a little relaxation.

 

Oh, she's got them well trained. They once told us that she would only eat the most expensive of cat food and absolutely nothing else. I didn't have the heart to tell them that she frequently ate the bread that we were putting out for the birds <_<

 

The party next door has finally stopped! :bday:

 

I didn't realize quite how much I missed the silence until now. The only noise is the howling wind from the passing storm, which is positively tranquil compared to the last couple of days. Time to chill and get some painting done.

My wife's cat was a very picky eater unless my wife had some bread and butter! Then she would do whatever she felt was necessary to beg/cajole/plead for bits of it!

Khatt won't take it if offered, but will steal it if you leave it unguarded. ::P:

Used the Accidental Water Trap last night, which was fun.

 

I couldn't believe they actually fell for it.

 

If you find a door that is literally OOZING around the edges, and had been so long that the walls and floor have gone GREEN, would YOU open it?

 

They did, even though they needed a 25 Str roll to open the lock. They went and used a Strength spell on the fighter.

 

As soon as they got the wheel to turn the door gave way, and released about a million gallons of stagnant water, sweeping them all down a vertical flume for 7D6 damage and a chance of Filth Fever.

 

They all took damage, and the wizard died, her body continuing down stream at a good speed.

 

They will need to retrieve it if they want to res her.

 

Sorry, not sorry, Becca! :lol:

 

Disused and forgotten cistern, if they could have gone around and up they could have gone swimming in the reeking water to their hearts's content.

 

They would still have been risking Filth Fever, though. :devil:

 

Just because it's hard to get through doesn't mean you should go there.

Back to work after having 2 weeks off. Cheese-n-crackers


Same here. Now begins the Long Suck. I don’t have a paid holiday off until Memorial Day in May. 
 

Oh wow. Just realized my son will be graduating before I get my next holiday. That’s disturbing and such. 
 

But let’s turn this around to something more interesting. In the late 70s and early 80s, the OKC zoo had these marvelous machines stationed around the park. Put in your money and it made a wax figure of the animal in the exhibit! My seven year old brain was blown, and was fascinated by them! Collected every one I could.

 

Got home, and had a problem. I needed to display them right proper, and I only had screw together metal shelves. Not posh enough. My grandpa was getting into wood working and said he could build me a little shelf unit if I gave him the size I needed. I sat down and did so, and a few weeks later had the most wonderful shelf to show off the figures. Sure, it was simply a board cut and nailed into a box shape with two shelves and given a routed edge, but it was beautiful with all the colorful animals for all to see. 

 

Roll time forward 39 years. The animals are long gone. Trashed in one of my step mother’s purges of things that “you didn’t need” of thr past two decades. I find the shelf unit in a pile of things my step mother is planning to toss in another purge after my father’s passing. Obviously I bring it home and have it safely in my basement, scheduled to be mounted. But there is another aspect to the story. 
 

I was cleaning out a box of grandma’s stuff we brought home from her funeral. I find a manilla envelope filled with cards my grandfather got from “me”. Mom wrote the cards, and I scrawled my name on most of them. My brother signed with circles and squiggles, so we were very young. Grandpa kept these treasures safe for 30 years, then grandma another 10. Included in that package of cherished mementos was a sheet of white paper, the dimensions of a shelving unit scrawled in crayon by a much younger me. My favorite was “8 inches, for the giraffe” for the bottom part.

 

I have a double treasure now to put up and display my current collections on, the shelf and the soon to be framed first “design” I ever did. 
 

Now I’m off to see about getting a giraffe, less than 8” tall.

I think all of our cats will eat cheese if my wife is having it.  The boys now recognize the sound of the plastic the cheese is wrapped in...

And at least one of them will eat bits of the crackers.  Mel likes to crunch things.

The physics of this situation is interesting. It is a wonder the door didn't swell shut. But 25 Str to open sounds about right for swollen shut...

 

The volume of one million gallons...  A 51x51x51 foot cube, approximately. (Thinks...) that is a space on a (contemporary) dungeon map 10x10 squares by 10 squares tall. Or maybe 11 tall to account for the rounding off I just did. That is a 50 foot diameter cylinder a smidgen over 68 feet tall. 

 

I wonder how long it would take for one million gallons to ooze away assuming the stored water was not being resupplied.

But you stated "cistern" so presumably it was being topped up by periodic rainfall, or a dedicated aqueduct, or inflow from a spring.

You can still get those plastic animals at some zoos and other locations.  Good luck reviving your collection. 

 

 

Our house cats won't eat "people" food.  They're very interested and will smell and lick, but not eat anything.  The exception being the baby food we give to the one cat with allergies and no teeth. 

 

The feral cats outside, on the other hand, are NOT fussy.  One of them really loves stale bread and corn chips I dump in the compost bin.

      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)
