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.

Of course, weird scaling can work for you as well. All of these from the "Frogs and Turtles" Tuub fit about perfectly in a 2"x2" grid, making them perfect for Monstrous Frogs and Turtles. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of them over the decades.
A lot of my players are rolling their eyes right now, in fact.

So apparently Trent Reznor plays MÖRK BORG which is a weird looped ouroboros of 'on brand' for both parties.

First attempt at a die (no serious sanding, just print, strip supports, ink): Made the letters way too deep! Still: Dice inbound.

Safari Ltd's Toob Collection has a new set out, Dragons of the Elements. They're about Large size for d20 games, cheap, and pre-painted.

...Oh, hey, I could test my molds by melting some crayons into them.

Here's a cursed C++ overload:

github.com/espressif/arduino-e

----- snip! -----
bool begin(int sda=-1, int scl=-1, uint32_t frequency=0); // returns true, if successful init of i2c bus
bool begin(uint8_t slaveAddr, int sda=-1, int scl=-1, uint32_t frequency=0);
----- snip! -----

Which of those will this call?
----- snip! -----
uint8_t pin_sda = 5;
uint8_t pin_scl = 12;
begin(pin_sda, pin_scl);
----- snip! -----

Wanna bet how much code is dependent on the WRONG ONE?

Time to draw the dungeons!

Drew this set of "gulley caves" last time on stream - who knows what strange dungeons we'll explore today!

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

The Howling Passages (named for the atonal howl of the winds blowing through these caves) have been used on-and-off by smugglers for years.

Someone else built the understructures, and there are no hints remaining today as to their purpose or builders.

This is Sagittarius A* best-bet model video, the massive black hole at the center of our Galaxy.

"The video shows a high-res simulation of one of the best-bet theoretical models of Sgr A* across about 28 hours."

I have this wuxia ttrpg book called Wulin, by Nicolás Henry and published by Les éditions du Troisième Oeil. It says it uses the Tay Ping system.
A friend of mine got it and gave me a copy. It seems to have like a brand behind it, as if it was a product meant to be kind of a franchise, but neither of us know anything more and I can't find anything on the Internet beyond Verkami.
Does any of you have any idea what this is about?

Concept: Dungeons as the "winning" culture.

Everyone, absolutely everyone, lives in buried / fortified / both settlements that are continually feuding and raiding one another.

Lorekeepers and such say that it wasn't always so, but that was in the deep ancient times, when "elf" and "orc" were things you might be, not just like elfic eye shapes or green blood being "orcen", or the Gnomish Weaving Revival.
