Question November 4th.

Is there something you really really want to do at least once in your life?

Since boyhood I wanted to tie a bandana over my face and walk around looking like an outlaw...


...parental and grandparents units Strongly disapproved of this plan. :rolleyes:

Have a pet, since I've never had an animal companion other than fish that I never really got to know.

I like the little things in life. I'd like to try making a batch of mead or ale. Not something that can happen anytime soon, since I take medication that I can't mix with alcohol, but it's at the top of the achievable list (I could still make it now, but I can't taste it or enjoy it so who knows how it'd actually turn out?).

I have travelled a bit and done some stuff I really wanted, but I would still like to visit Indonesia/China/Japan and some other Asian countries.

Hope we get the chance in the future.

A book.

 

I have to have a "security book" before I leave the house. Seriously. Most people feel this way about their phones--I'm okay if I forget my phone at home, but not a book. 

 

I need daily pet cuddles. My mental health suffers without my fuzz therapists standing by around the clock.

I've got a list of things I'd like to see and do I've been working through for quite some time now. The list changes as my interests change, things get added and dropped. Some of the things I've managed to knock off include seeing whales, hiking up to a cirque (a depression at the top of a mountain where alpine glaciers start) and walking around in it, hiked a small portion of the Appalachian trail, canoed the apostle islands, a few other things. I still want to see a Great White shark in the wild, hike around Isle Royale in Lake Superior and the Scottish Highlands, and get a close up a view as possible of a volcano among other things. We tried to see a Great White out in MA several years back at the Monomoy National Wildlife refuge where they had been catching seals just offshore. Didn't see any sharks, but saw plenty of seals and even a few birds I'd never seen before. So going to have to try and see that again someday.

Canoe the Nahanni. Among my friends, either you have or you want to. Paddle a war canoe, either west cost native or Maori. Snorkel and scuba dive tropical locations. My parents fed the fish bananas in Mexico. I want to feed them an entire plantation!

Get Reaper to make flumphs and flumph adventurers, because the image in my head of them fighting a tarrasque is funny.

 

Seriously everyone, join the Flumph Revolution.

The easy answer is wanting to publish a book, or some other kind of media that stays around after I'm gone.

The harder answer is more of a reaction to all of the uncertainties I'm currently facing.  I was raised with a lot of classic Celtic traditions.  It was a part of my Mom's life that meant a lot to her and she passed it on to me.  I was fortunate enough to get to visit Ireland for a couple weeks a few years ago for school.  My mom has been battling cancer for the past year, and I'm still holding out hope that she can beat it and we'll get to go and visit Ireland together.  It would mean a lot to me to get to see her visit the place she loves so much.

Sorry for the emotional answer.

No need to feel sorry.

I'll help you hope that it comes true.

 

Thanks for feeling comfortable enough to share this with us.

I've gotten to see/visit a lot of places while I was in the Navy, but there are still a lot I haven't yet. Revisiting some with my wife would be nice, too.

I selflessly volunteer to drink your beer or mead and give you feedback so you can achieve this goal and know how good the result is.

Question November 3rd.

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

 

 


Nicotine and caffeine- the breakfast of champions... I should probably quit.

Plant, grow and harvest a crop of cannabis.  Doesn't even have to be a field's worth either. Just a handful of specimen would be fine by me.

      Wiggles was a freebie with the Squealers core set, which are primed and ready to be painted. He was pretty easy to paint and a lot of fun.

      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      Addendum One: Those who fail to comply will automatically be enlisted in WOOF!!! Your yearly contribution to WOOF will be charged from your card or bank account monthly for a small fee of $1000 in your Nation's currency.

      Reaper Challenge League 2022
      1) Intro
      2) How It Works
      3) Types of Challenges
      4) The Raffle

                         PDF Check List               Discord
                         
      Intro:
             Welcome to the Reaper Challenge League (RCL), a system that rewards fans for completing community-based events and challenges. This will all be conducted via the Reaper Miniatures Discord, where there is a system in place to track points and administer raffles easily (see below).

      THIS IS NOT A CONTEST ----- This is meant to be a challenge against yourself to see what you can accomplish, not a contest to compete in against other people in the community. So enjoy your time in creating stuff and have fun doing it with everyone else!

      Only Reaper minis will be accepted except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge.

      How It Works:
      Users can submit photos of RCL projects on the #submissions area on Discord and receive points depending on the tier of challenge.
      These points can then in turn be used to purchase raffle tickets which will be drawn quarterly, with a large annual raffle at the end of the year. Only Reaper minis will be accepted for submissions, except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge. Each quarter, a RCL raffle shall be held during the last seven days. This ensures that people have ample time to enter tickets or finish any entries so your points may be exchanged into tickets. On the last day of the quarter, the raffle will be drawn, and winners posted. At the end of the year a larger raffle will occur that accounts all accrued points points you have earned yearly (spent and unspent).  Terms and Conditions may change at the discretion of Reaper Miniatures at any time.

      Type of Challenges:
         All entries must show some sign of trying and not just throwing paint on to get some quick points. In keeping of the spirit of the league, challenge yourself and see what you and others are capable of. The amount of points that each one challenge will grant are in the () below, as well on the PDF for the 2021 chart. Reaper Challenge League PDF
       
       
       








      The Raffle:
           The raffle will happen the last 7 days of each quarter, This will ensure that people have ample time to enter their tickets or finish any entries they need to complete before drawings. Tickets will be pulled on the last day of each quarter!
          This will all be done on the Discord server, as we have a bot that is programmed to keep track of members points and how many tickets they have. We will use this bot to open the drawing and for you to enter and participate with the system. The drawing will stay open for one week before doing the drawing on the last day at a set time!

      Thank you, the team!

      Frequently asked questions
       
      Q: I am just wondering if one model can be turned in for two different categories? 
      A: In the spirit of the challenge, we would like it if you submitted a different model for another challenge. As this isn't a contest and meant to get people hobbying. 🙂 so you would just be doing yourself a dissatisfaction!!!!!
       
      Q:  Since the Reaper Discord moves so insanely fast, how will winners be notified? 
      A:There will be a channel that is static that is read only, for raffle winner and other announcements. 
       
      Q: Will the raffle draws be things that can survive through colder climates when shipped? 
      A: Not to sure on the exact prizes but this ties into your third question, I can hold things for you if cold climate is an issue and ship it at an opportune time.
       
      Q: For the Quarterly holiday - what are you looking for for Q1?  Like would just, any winter/snowy model be ok, or do I need to figure out what a MLK day themed model would be? 😜
      A: The rules are very loose, as this is not a contest and is meant for you and others to hobby!!!!!! So if you think its a holiday or a special day? By all means paint something and present it under that challenge category, as long as you spent time and effort into making it, I will recognize it. As an example if you wanted to paint something that was for your birthday! i'll count that!
