Worst. Effluent. Imaginable.

You've found a strange wand/key wrapped in a scroll and a map to "Dohrlegond's Tombs" - and quick scouting around shows the place is currently under the "management" of Thar Gorecrusher and their band of ogres, orcs, and savage ne'er do wells...

Time to draw the dungeons!

I stream Tue / Thur / Sat from 1-4pm Eastern.

Today we are starting with a small cave map and we'll see where the stream takes us after that.

I was this many year old when I fond out that "The Mentor" was the actual reason Steve Jackson Games got raided by the Secret Service...

I played a Firbolg and used the AD&D Monster Manual II cover image for his portrait.

Tree rings are evidence of the Megadrought—and our doom

Scientists are using dendroclimatology to investigate megadroughts in the western U.S., and the trees are telling a disturbing tale.

I really want someday to GM Caverns of Thracia. As a trans woman game designer illustrator, Jennell Jaquays is the only « great master » or mentor legacy figure who share my craft and identity that I can claim and relate to. She is kind of my Moebius. It would be very meaningful for me to be able to experience her foundational work. Being uprooted and connections with my family, it would feel extra special for me.

I spent most of the day yesterday laying on the grass, knocking on the sky and listening to the sound.

I must have dozed off a few times because last night sleep just WOULD NOT COME.

Which is a long way of saying I'm skipping today's stream and taking a nap.

One clear no-no with Gamesience dice is to use acetone. You might have guessed that but I was desperate to rehab this old d20. Someone had inked whole sides with nail polish (?) and I couldn’t get it off with my go-to (dry erase board wipes) or anything else short of sanding it offf. Acetone worked but partially melted the surface of the die. Compare the acetone “blurred” die left to the minty fresh one on the right which I got inside an SPI game I bought on eBay.

I like keeping an eye out for Safari, because they have some great, pre-painted monsters at 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of a similar hobby miniature.
For example, this Guardian Dragon is about 5 inches tall, and clearly wearing dwarven-craft armor.

Scale and style can be issues, so watch out for details. This "Wild Dragon" is almost 8 inches tall, about twice the volume of the Guardian Dragon.
