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

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! 

 

In truth, shooting a dragon in the nose with a magic missile and then taunting it is probably not a good survival policy...

Still l, it was disappointing to miss out on the xp for that run, it was a good run.

 

As for finding the treasure, I believe if we stand near the swamp and activate a certain scroll we should be able to find the treasure.  Now all the party has to deal with is Alwin's grieving paramour and co-apprentice Morgana!

Ergo, “All the best people” is equivalent to “All the weird people”.

Fought software all day yesterday. CAD is hiding parts after I told it not to. Tell the system to show everything and it does ... except the parts it wants to hide again. 
 

Had to reach out to some experts above my level, of which I think there are maybe a dozen. I think it’s a bug.

 

Or incredibly well hidden user error.

Grrrr! Getting so annoyed with this amazon seller! 
 

So, I ordered this really nice cabinet for my paints. It’s wood, so I can put magnetic child locks on it, because I had a horrifying vision of Sephy one day getting into my paints and squirting them all over the place... anyway, I need a locking paint cabinet. 
 

This one I ordered I have to put together myself, no big deal, except that one of the load bearing pieces is missing holes for the dowels. So I sent them a message, hey please send me a new piece, etc etc, and they sent back right away that they would. 
 

Five days later it hasn’t arrived, so I sent them again, hey where is my piece, need to put together my cabinet, want to art, etc. 
 

Except now they’re saying they can offer a partial refund for the missing piece! The piece I must have to put the whole thing together!!! 

 

I told them either they send me that piece or they give me a full refund. Why are people so annoying :angry:

We got the D&D thing operational last night, after a week of false starts and missing players. Was quite all right. I played at the mobile command center and could roll my dice on the tabletop with ease. Quite nice. No more, or at least a lot less, of that hateful Roll20 dice roller for me lulz.

 

Anyway, we killed a rather hellish remorhaz! And I didn't even recognize if from the description. I thought it was a carrion crawler. <_<

 

I guess we're near the end of Avernus, and tbh I think I'm ready to move on. I've had fun, but eh.

 

In other news, placed my first Wal*Mart grocery pickup order yesterday. Pick up Sunday morning. They're just starting it at ours today. Was able to order almost everything my folks needed and a few odds and ends for me--including hamburger!--but who knows how much of it we'll actually get. Guess we'll see.

 

Good morning to everyone except this cold snap, which is lovely but probably will make me have to flip the heat back on tonight.

First call of the day was me having to explain to a customer that, no, I will not help him figure out how to wire up some random coin dispensing hopper he bought on eBay in order  to make it work with our equipment instead of him purchasing the correct item through his distributor.  Telling him "if you try anyway and blow up your circuit board(s), they run about $2000 each" was fun, though.

Second call of the day was me telling a customer to call his distributor for help with his problem, to which he replied "that will cost me money!" and then having to explain to him that if I help him over the phone I have to charge him, too, and he'll still probably end up calling his distributor for this particular type of problem. 

Third call of the day is a site that is completely down due to a nearby lightning strike, for which they're probably going to need a half a dozen parts or more. Parts that can't be sent out today because the factory in Calgary is closed for Good Friday. 

So how is your Good Friday going?

Sounds like there is a gremlin or three dancing around in your SHOW / NOSHOW and PICK / NOPICK options and they may have done the shenanigans down in a few layers of nested details.

Got awoken to the sounds of several robins and the squab having a singing battle around 6am. Which is tolerable. However if they ever attempt to have a dance battle, I'm spraying them with the hose....

      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).

      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)
