VERY Brief Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian

Hello, Dear Readers! It’s been one heck of a week, and it’s looking at being busier as my birthday is coming up this Friday (yay me!). Unfortunately, that means I didn’t get a lot of painting done this week (although I plan on having it for next Tuesday!). Here is the update on the Barbarian:Continue reading “VERY Brief Painting Update: Goliath Barbarian”

Well, It Finally Happened…

Dear Readers, I am so irritated right now. Throughout this whole pandemic, I had successfully avoided any and all contact with Covid and possible exposure. Until now. And although I am vaccinated, and although I am asymptomatic, I am choosing to quarantine for the next 10 days. What this means for me and y’all isContinue reading “Well, It Finally Happened…”

Depression and MS

Dear Readers, I am so sorry that I haven’t been as active as I try to hold myself towards. My depression and my MS are at it again, and energy and motivation are very very difficult for me. It’s hard to come up with new materials when you are feeling…well, more than a bit down,Continue reading “Depression and MS”

How-To DM: Absent Players

We’ve all been there: you either have a regular session every week, or every two weeks, or even monthly. It’s scheduled out. But come the day of or the day before, and they cancel on you. Or, they just tell you they’re going to be gone that day and they can’t make that session. WhatContinue reading “How-To DM: Absent Players”

Short Post: Miniature Painting by Someone Else!

Hey everyone! I figured that all of you would be tired of seeing my miniature painting, and would like to see some others’ paintings. Here you go! What do you think, Dear Readers? Let me know in the comments section what you think! Until next time, Dear Readers…

Artist Debut: Spider

Miniature Restoration Project: Mistletoe

And some of you may remember, one of my favorite projects that I do that are miniature related is to restore my parents’ old pewter miniatures. Today, we have with us an old, what I believe, is a ranger. He might be something else, but I doubt it. In any case, his name is Mistletoe.Continue reading “Miniature Restoration Project: Mistletoe”

Painting Update: Paladin

So apparently my post from three days ago didn’t upload, so I find myself this morning editing my post. Lovely. In any case, here is what was posted originally, and you’ll get a bonus post in a few minutes… Good afternoon, Dear Readers, and welcome to another painting update! I finally remembered to grab theContinue reading “Painting Update: Paladin”

Ho-To DM: DMing Young People

Sorry for the late post…it’s been a busy day. I had a number of doctor’s appointments today, so please forgive me. Tonight, Dear Readers, was an awesome game. I’m not going to do a summary, although it would be great, but I will let you know that I am running Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. But thisContinue reading “Ho-To DM: DMing Young People”

Miniature Painting Update: Knocking Out Some of My Projects!

Just a quick update on two of my projects: Today I worked with the aasimar paladin. The only reason she has flesh tone on her face is that I had, a while back, accidentally poured out too much of the flesh color and pulled out a bunch of minis and started painting faces. Then IContinue reading “Miniature Painting Update: Knocking Out Some of My Projects!”

Miniature Painting Update: Acererak + New Project

Dear Readers, I’m back! I’m sorry for the hiatus. I really needed to take a mental health break. As all of you or some of you may know, I deal with MS as well as chronic depression and I really needed some time to get my head back in a good place. That said, hereContinue reading “Miniature Painting Update: Acererak + New Project”

Today’s Post

Dear Readers, it’s been a busy week. My Sunday group, as you all know, recently finished Rime of the Frostmaiden. Nice, if strange and kind of… unfulfilling ending. My Tuesday group, the Inglorious Ingrates, had a great session last night. We’ll hear about it next week (Player’s Perspective does a summary a week in theContinue reading “Today’s Post”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale

Dear Readers, due to the…decisions of the party, the campaign ended rather…abruptly. And no, it wasn’t a TPK…Also, the ranger/rogue and the fighter/rogue were gone and we had two substitute players: a halfling and a goliath barbarian. The battle against the demilich continued, with two new allies joining the fight! Upon joining, the goliath barbarianContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale”

Hearing Yourself is Weird

Short post today, Dear Readers… For those unaware, we do a podcast recording of my Tuesday group campaign. It’s a lot of fun, and we call ourselves The Inglorious Ingrates. It’s a really fun bunch of players and we have a really good time playing. As of now, we’ve recorded four episodes, not including ourContinue reading “Hearing Yourself is Weird”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Central Spire

Dear Readers, thank you for your understanding while I took some time with my family in my absence. You all are great. When last we left our heroes, they had just driven off Auril, and had taken a long rest. Seeing that the force field around the central spire was still down, the party decidedContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Central Spire”

Current Projects

Dear Readers, I apologize if there has been a serious lack of substantive content in recent history, but I’ve been feeling really under the weather especially after my short vacation. No I don’t have anything serious, just a cold combined with allergies. That said I have some updates on some things I’ve been working on.Continue reading “Current Projects”
