Yeah, stretch marks never go away <_< 

 

Unfortunately I can 100% confirm this.  :down:  

 

Although I've still got my childhood scars as well, I tend to get large, prominent scars.  <_< So much so that when I went to Universal Studios as a child the guy dressed up as Frankenstein's monster was sympathetic.

First fatality in the after school game, sort of - the bard(!) had a scroll of Breath of Life - and cast it successfully with Use Magic Device.

 

I do not think anyone in the party is going to object to buying her another to replace it.

 

Facing redcaps and a boogieman - a CR 7 encounter for a CR 5 group, but all armed with lethal cold iron weapons, not just the truncheons that they have for general duty.

 

The group neglected to look up when they entered the warehouse, and then they spread out. When one of the PCs was far enough away, they dropped from the rafters.

 

Worse, the fey all got away, this time. Mostly with no serious damage, except the boogieman and one of the redcaps.

 

But they did manage to rescue the klobasnec seller. Sliced up, diced up , and tortured, but still alive.

 

*EDIT* The ranger is finally pulling out his Animal Companion* - a big dumb blood hound named 'Yowp'. They finally have a sent it can follow. ::D:

 

And, oddly enough, my problem player went to talk to the Chief Medical Examiner in the hospital and... talked sense to him.

 

It seems the bard did notice that he was turning dark, and chose the darkest member of the group to talk him around.

 

Last week's beating and victory did the trick. He is being a knight in rusty armor, rather than a lone sociopath/murder hobo.

 

He's also decided that he is going to find out who killed the Assistant Medical Examiner's skeletal sidekick. Which means he is going to be on a side quest once they wrap up the serial killer plot. (For his part, the skeletal companion doesn't much care who killed him - he feels he is doing good, and is a better person dead than he was while alive. He is finding redemption, rather than seeking revenge.)

 

I swear, the kid was trying to do a Humphrey Bogart voice - I am willing to give him points, just for making the attempt.

 

Also... the game is really beginning to feel like a TV show....

 

The Auld Grump

 

* He has had an Animal Companion on his sheet for over a year - and until now hadn't even decided what the animal was.... I may have laid a hint or two that a tracking dog might be a good idea....

Since pictures of pets have been requested, I present:

 

Ming

148000814_2011-08-01Bookming.thumb.jpg.13f075904b650a28d36c4fb8941c0fc4.jpg

 

When Mrs. Strawhat and I started dating, Ming was not a fan.  She eventually changed her attitude, and claimed me.  It got to the point where it didn't matter if I was on the computer or reading, she had had to be right there with me.  Ming passed in 2012.  Went to bed one night like normal, and in the morning...

 

Pepper

523113561_Pepper10YO.jpg.b64e94cfcb026658b9f1701d8e78f3b3.jpg

 

Pepper is the other cat that came with the Mrs. and the girls.  Pepper took to me straight away and started grooming my bald head the first time I sat on Mrs. Strawhat's couch.  She's about 10 in the picture, and that was 10 years ago.  She doesn't do much anymore.  Naps on the bed.  Naps under the granddaughter's bed.  Naps on the loveseat.  Naps on my lap.  She occasionally eats and complains when she wants me to pick her up (instead of her jumping up on the furniture).

 

Topaz

FirstVetVisit.jpg.a0ba3b39915b64405d964640302c8f1b.jpg

 

After Ming passed, Pepper was just not the same cat.  So we checked the shelter, and found Topaz.  She was about a year old, 7 pounds (a pound larger than our aging Pepper), with a fuzzy tail (the rest of her was not fuzzy), and huge paws.  The paws should have been a warning, but I figured at a year old she would have done all her growing!  The tail should have been a warning, but she was listed as a DSH.  The shelter knows, right?

 

IMG_15872991042355.jpeg.4231de8a8cbb0e3d5161cd0b15604259.jpeg

 

In a few months she had nearly doubled in weight, developed a ruff, and tripled in overall floofiness.  I'm not entirely certain when she stopped growing...

Launched our new biweekly dungeon-crawl game tonight. 5e with some throwback rule tweeks to early editions. A few hallways and a room in and it already has an Undermountain kinda vibe I'm grooving on lol. Should be good.

 

There's another older dude in the group besides me for a change tho... and he's playing a kender. And when I say he's playing a kender... he's really playing a kender. Gotta admit it's been a while since I had this pleasure. :unsure:

 

He's doing all the scouting for traps tho, so. :devil:

Sigh, i still have my stretch marks, although the scar from the burn on my wrist when I was 2 and a half. I am no longer really marked left (burn side) and right (not burn side)  My wife still gets a giggle when she asks for a direction and the first thing i do is look at my wrist.

With luck on your side, you should soon be able to rid yourself of the kender!  We played a dragonlance campaign and i made it much darker than it had to be.  Turns out kender are exceptionally tasty for dragons and their kin... so much so that even the good dragons couldnt resist the occasional nibble.  There were very, very few kinder left on the planet and they did NOT go outdoors!

 

I really feel for you:  a really good player can make kender a lot of fun for the party and be exceptionally useful.  However, most people who play kender only think they play kender well.  I will be curious if he survives friendly fire...

The muzzle and paws indicate she may be part Maine Coon or Ragdoll.  I'm leaning towards Ragdoll because she doesn't have the wide and tufted ears of the MC.   Hard to tell without seeing all of her.  Beautiful girl.   Is she chirpy or quiet?

Little more fluff around the ears, and I might have said she had some Siberian in her, but... she doesn't look anything like my Topaz (purebred Siberian, and a huge floof).

It was pretty cute, and cool to get the attention, too.  This was back in the 80s, when interacting with a character personality was pretty rare.  He didn't talk, though, so it was more of a "surgery sucks" empathy moment.  My childhood knee surgery involved two 3" scars, almost 1/4" wide, with obvious suture marks.  But it was hot, so I was wearing a short skirt.

We've often wondered if her mother or father had a significant streak of something exotic.  She'd been living feral when the shelter caught her, but she adjusted to house living very well.  She's not a snuggler, but tolerates being picked up and nuzzled by myself or Mrs. Strawhat.  She also likes to attack my feet when I'm wearing socks, but not when barefoot or wearing shoes.

 

In general, she's fairly quiet.  But when she wants something she's not afraid to make some noise.  She doesn't "meow," but she makes an "ow" noise.  Her purr is usually very quiet.  It gets a little louder when the brush comes out, or if she "gets stuck" behind some furniture.  I use quotes because if you ignore her, she'll come back out the same way she got in.  She's just looking to cause a stir.

 

When she was still young she could clear the back of the loveseat from a dead stop.  One moment we're watching TV and the next there's an orange blur as To-spaz (one of many similar nicknames) clears the back of the loveseat and lands in the middle of the living room.  If she's running, she easily clears the baby gate we use to separate the dog from our cats when we dog-sit.  She likes to torment the puppy, but doesn't like to hang around for the barking.  She's not "overly" long, but she's long enough to get her paws up to the counter top and take a peak at what we're doing.  She's also done that when I've been painting.  I was more than a little concerned she'd tip the TV tray I use over!

we know my cat is part siamese, due to his bone structure and his very vocal nature, as well as how needy and attached he is to me

Poor little Sephy... she’s got another ear infection ::(: she has stronger antibiotics (which will most like give her diarrhea) and should be feeling better in a couple days. Just have to keep an eye on that diaper situation.

      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!
      (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)
