Normally in the state of WA it is illegal to take/consume alcohol beverages outside of an establishment that sales liquor. However, due to current situations, they are now able to offer mixed drinks to go. One local bar has started offering Jello Shots. YUM!!!

In Megan's Norse game, we have begun the long Hex Crawl part of the campaign, and have found a deserted and semi-ruined village, big enough to hold our settlers, without worrying about undead coming up from the vaults.

 

But...

 

We has met the enemy, and he is orcs.

 

We got our settlers settled in, and started fortifying the village - there is a version of the map with improvised fortifications, so I may have taken that as a freakin' clue!

20x20Preview_previous_patreon-4.jpg

 

Three nights in, and an orc scouting party has found our encampment.

 

Six engaged, two fled - and got away.

 

Which means we will be seeing more orcs next week.

 

Two of the orc scouts were Scouts - getting a sneak attack bonus when they charged me.

 

I took the charge on purpose - the next closest was Julie's witch - and she is squishy.

 

But I took 28 points of damage in that first round - and I am only fourth level. That... was not fun. Down to three HP in the first round of combat - and I couldn't really risk healing myself - I needed to put the blighters down.

 

Then Julie hexed the first one, so he wasn't hitting after that, while I stomped his buddy into green paste.

 

Jon's bloodrager and Dennis the Younger's half-orc took on three orc rangers. We found Dennis' half-orc in the dungeons a few weeks ago, captive of the bandits. Born local - he was a child when the Keep fell. He's a half-orc, but both his parents were human - something is up with that, I think. 

 

The third took to a tree, and fired arrows at Duncan's skald and Julie's witch.

 

Jenny's first action was Sanctuary, so the orcs wouldn't target her. After that she came after me, and started slapping Cure Light Wounds on me - enough that I Did Not Die.

 

While we were fighting the six scouts that hit us the other two got away.

 

We don't know when the orcs will be back, but we do know that they will be back.

May I take this opportunity to thank @OneBoot for introducing me to a ridiculous time waster called  Cookie Clicker?

I'm making 22.798 trillion cookies per second and it's taking a "long time" to produce enough goods to get the next upgrade or building.

It's worse than potato chips.

Um, you're welcome? :blink: I have absolutely no memory of mentioning that funny little game here, but I guess I must have, lol.

 

How many alien grandmas do you have working for you now?

 

Huzzah!

I've been reluctant to buy the One Mind Upgrade.

It just seems sinister.

That doesn't happen every day... I've managed to convince myself to eventually buy an expensive tablet in the future, despite my lack of fondness for 2in1 designs... Although nobody said I had to get the keyboard cover - I'd want to try it in person before picking one up anyways, if that were the case. 

 

But yeah, Tab S6 is definitely tempting, but I'd have to double check what it is I want to do because the Tab A 10.1 is a lot cheaper...

Awesome, when are the weddings? ::D:

 

And yes, what happened in your adventure tonight is pretty much the orcs' version of an engagement party.

It is kinda, yeah, and the UI changes to look darker and spooky. But wow did my production rate ever go up! :winkthumbs: Also the news headlines start reflecting the change, and it's kind of hilarious. IIRC, you can reverse it if you don't like it, though it's been quite awhile since I last played.

Well, according to the divination system of UPS my box from Warlord should be here Tuesday. 

On the subject of flumphs, during the course of my investigations into whether or not the food network was a front for a survival of a roman Bacchunite mystery cult, I came across evidence that IHOP was using flumphs as main ingredients in their "secret menu" available only to a group of "known regulars" distinguishable by a small runic pancake tattoo on the inside pad of their little finger on the left hand. Apparently this was mainly an East Coast phenomenon, although there was supposedly a branch somewhere around Milwaukee as well. 

The "foodie" movement in general seems to show signs of a subtle guidance outside of the usual and expected "suppliers of various ingredients bribe the network into making their goods "trendy" to increase sales"... the rise of the Forbidden Art of Kitchen Science III seems to date back to around this era, and I have heard disturbing rumors from the local birds that somewhere in the county, a Foodie Cult has begun to gather the trendy ingredients in the order of introduction, perhaps for an upcoming ritual around the Solstice....perhaps this is what has been interfering with my rain summoning attempts, but perhaps my onion wearing, verbal abuse of clouds has also interfered with their goals as well. If I am aware of them, it stands to reason that they either already are, or soon will be aware of me, so time once again to shore up the defenses...

The birds have also spoken of rumors of a massive cheese hoard somewhere deep in the unhallowed lands of Wisconsin, so it seems the Dread Cheese Lords are consolidating their power towards some yet unknown malefic plot...

(thread ending lore dump continues)

On the subject of Kitchen Science III, on the surface it is where cooking meets alchemy. During my time in Austin I first encountered it's existence at the bakery where I worked. During the evenings, it would switch over to fine dining and on of the more popular items was the trout. Or as we knew it, the "M*********g TROUT!". Packed with enough flavor that we were almost unable to legally refer to it as fish and had reservations about serving to anyone under 18, lest it warp their tastebuds towards unobtainable flavor, thus condemning them to a hopeless trout addiction that would lead to them devolving into a life of petty crime to continue to afford said trout....

Anyway, in passing on day I noticed that while preparing the trout, the cooks were uttering incantations under their breath and what they swore was simply a wine reduction, bore strong resemblance to the Red Quintessance. Chef Cave Troll* lumbered over and introduced some unknown liquid to the mix, and immediately the vibe of the kitchen changed. Don't get me wrong, Chef Cave Troll alone was capable of generating an aura of maliciousness all on his own without supernatural aid, but even he was unable to do so to this same extent, nowhere near. Anyway, after being chased out and back to the dish pit after he noticed I had observed the small dropper bottle he'd drawn from to add to the reduction, I pondered the matter and later thru various research and interrogation of the line cooks, determined that what was in that bottle was a corrupted form of the Seeds of Gold, and that the "resturant group" that had a stranglehold over much of Austin was it's source. 

This was the only time I witnessed it's use in person, but cooks like to drink, and I was able to over time gather a certain amount of surface level knowledge concerning Kitchen Science III. Certain culinary schools teach it to select students, and I've encountered two of such. They remain tight lipped on the subject and broaching it in their presence as an outsider leads to them waging instant and utter war upon you. Most line cooks who didn't learn it in school are a bit more talkative, but don't entirely understand why they are performing the rituals and incantations that they do, other than "chef said so" and most don't look far into it. Occasionally one will be taken under the chef's wing as an apprentice of sorts, and these tend to become rabid fanatics who almost worship "their" chef as a deity, like their culinary school counterparts, they go from 0 to Berserker Violence when the subject of Kitchen Science III is mentioned by anyone not approved of by their chef.

From what little I've gathered it's mostly a corruption of the alchemical process, except for the summoning incantations. Interestingly it does not seem to have existed prior to 2002, or at least I can find no evidence earlier than that as of yet. The increased and addictive flavor appears to be gained thru transmutation, echoing the traditional lead to gold, but the viciousness of the addiction does not seem to be physically based, or even mentally, rather it is some manner of spiritual enslavement. 

 

*Not only did he outwardly resemble the cave troll from Fellowship of the Ring, he was most certainly a servant of Morgoth, having been responsible for destroying a chill relaxed work environment and replacing it with a hellhole of bullelfery and driving off our best employees. Let his given name be forgotten in the mists of time, and only by "cave troll" shall his memory endure.

      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).

      20
      9039
      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.

      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)
