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

Recommended Posts

Heh, kids are plotting and planning - I am listening in, but only answering questions, right now. ::):

 

They just realized why the agent was assassinated - and that it is tied to the Laughing Devils and the smugglers that they dealt with last year. :devil:

 

They are not looking forward to fighting devils.

This has been in the works for a while -

I just realized that I can use the Parliament House (with kegs of gunpowder in the basement) from the Heroic Maps Patreon in the after school game next year - they do not know about the maps from my Regency Space game. ::D:

 

One of the clues that will tie into the Juggernaut - one of the last delivered cargoes from the smugglers was a massive shipment of gunpowder.... But why would a church be buying gunpowder in such quantities?... :devil:

 

The Auld Grump

 

:lol:

 

They are going to be trying to save parliament, while not getting blowed up!

Pretty sure I will be rounding off the game as they kick open the door - they are still making plans....

 

I swear to Gogamagog, they would have been finished with the Church by now, and on their way to Parliament if they weren't arguing in circles.

She hadn't noticed the fluffy white stuff dropping from the sky.

House is filled with the delicious odor of spaghetti sauce that has been simmering for the last two hours.  Currently waiting for the water to boil so I can prepare the Angel Hair Pasta.

Garlicky Cheese Sourdough Bread is ready and I just have to shove it under the broiler.

Life is good.

It's not as bad as it sounds, while still never being something I will ever make.

 

Aunt Dot also makes those Jello molds with fruit in. Somewhere in her hwart she wants to be from the midwest.

 

The pasta are these little tiny bead like things.

Yes, this, but a tiny pasta, no tapioca.

 

And Aunt, not great-aunt. ::P:

 

And colored mini-marshmallows.

 

Acini di pepe pasta is what we've always used.  We also usually double up on mandarin oranges and cut back on fruit cocktail.

 

Eldest wouldn't eat it for the longest time because of the name...which just made me say it all the more.  More for me that way!  She also wouldn't touch cat barf dip.  Silly kid.

Made soup this afternoon so we are good for a couple lunches/meals from it. Relaxing tonight and waiting for my first attempt at printing multiple minis [three battlemechs] at once on the Ender. Then....exciting evening watching a mystery or two. Work all day tomorrow at the bank, so I will get out once again into the scary world.

Last night we had maple and redbud smoked salmon, with asparagus and pain grillé.  Tonight we had fire-roasted tenderloin of pork, parsley buttered noodles, and a medley of spring vegetables, served with marsala cream sauce. Dessert will be cherry tarts with creme glacee.   Need to go pillage forage for food soon.  Maybe Monday. 

 

Spent the afternoon trying to buy figures. Was going to do a drive-by at the FLGS, but they have shut down until this is over.  Took a while to find a site that carried the multiple brands I wanted.  Package hopefully arriving in a week.

So, my D&D game went remarkably well for the party. They recovered a significant amount of treasure, escaped the dungeon, got ambushed by the dragon that they've been dealing with for months now, it melted the elf, bit the head off the NPC priest, nearly charmed the other priest, before the dwarf and monk killed it. 

 

It's really too bad they have no idea where the dragon's lair is!

 Damn... Mort Drucker just passed away:down:

 

I started reading MAD Magazine while standing in the stores long before my mother ever let me buy them and bring them home.

 

 

 

My mother handed me my first MAD Magazine when I was... late elementary school? Early middle school? There was a distinct "here, I'm your mother and I say you need to read this" kind of vibe. I'm not sure if she wanted me to be prepared for teenaged human males or to somehow make my weirdness more normal or because I was old enough to learn the great and venerable art of satire.

 

It succeeded at the first one because human males are weird. It succeeded at the last one because satire is indeed a great and venerable tradition that should be preserved and cherished. Not sure about that middle one, I have never been normal ::P:

That was one of the things I would read in the basement of the town library back when I worked there during high school.  they had decades of them just sitting there. Don't think it ever occurred to anyone that they kept the back issues after they took them off the magazine rack. And since the basement was closed to the public, the only way to get them was to ask. 

that was easily the best part of that job.

      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.
