OMG, It’s done! This was a lot of work, but worth every second! :D
I present to you: The Dungeon Master’s Mimic! The idea behind this project was to make one single container that a GM, or well prepared player can store all their RPG needs in and easily carry them from game to game. And what other way to make a chest more roleplaying game related than making it a mimic? :3
It’s made from solid pine that I stained with a nice walnut stain and finished with briwax. All the hardware is steel and brass. It has a soft, 100% wool felt lining to protect the books it’s carrying The main compartment comfortably holds around 5-6 large rule books and a smaller secondary compartment holds an insert that can safely store all your dice, miniatures, tokens and pencils!
It measures 14 inches across, 9 inches deep and 10 inches tall. The main internal compartment measures 12 x 6 x 10 inches.
The teeth are solid wood, too and have been dulled for safety. (I’d still not joke around and slam it shut on your friend’s hand, though…)
This project was loads of fun, even though throughout the built I came across some rather annoying stumbling blocks. Making it would have been a lot easier if I had a table saw :P Still, I’m so happy that it’s finally done and am very proud of how it turned out.
I won’t sell this as usual through my Etsy store. It is a unique item that I put a lot of my heart and soul into and I don’t feel that Etsy’s “first come, first serve” policy on purchases would do it justice. Instead I have listed it on Ebay in a one week auction. I thought that way instead of whoever happens to see it the quickest, it will go to whoever wants it the most ^__^
So, lets talk about Mermaids, because that’s exactly the sort of thing we adults do on a weekend.
We all have these concepts of mermaids in our head. They should be beautiful, flowing and colorful with big tails and ability to sing. Artists love to draw them in all sorts of poses, in all shapes and sizes, tails bending all over the place. They are not the most logical of beasts. So lets try to explain them which science!
Now, in becoming a mentor, I’m able to see just how badly this system has been abused, and will summarily start reporting folks who are being shitturds and not mentor-like at all.
What on earth do you mean, Kai?
I mean the overwhelming amount of Mentors I’ve run into who are, quite honestly, little shitstains with no concept of how to be helpful at ALL and are nothing but rude and condescending to new and old players alike.
See those rules? The fact most mentors I’ve run across refuse to follow those rules just so they can have a powertrip is exactly why I’ve been working so hard towards mentor. Because even when I wasn’t wearing that crown next to my name, I at least fuckin’ tried to be polite and helpful if you weren’t being a trolly, asinine little shit.
How are they born? Which nipple set do they suckle from? Where are their lungs and their guts? Are they vegetarian, or omnivore?
Well, lets think about this, with veterinary science!
Foals are born with long legs and a long neck that can get in the way with disastrous consequences for both mum and bub. Humans are born relatively underdeveloped compared to foals, but with a fully functional respiratory and digestive system. The centaur foal would have to keep the human torso between its front legs when birthing, or everything is going to be stuck. Now it’s cramped inside a mare uterus anyway, so it would be easier if the centaur foal is born more on the underdeveloped side, more in line with the human development.
As long as the lungs are mature, and it can digest milk, having a relatively underdeveloped foal body should be no issue. Usually premature foals have great difficulty feeding as they can be too short to reach the mare’s nipples. The centaur mare luckily has the ability and intelligence to sit down and cradle her young while feeding them from the torso.
Dusk City Outlaws is a tabletop roleplaying game inspired by books, TV shows, and movies like The Lies of Locke Lamora, Leverage, and Ocean’s Eleven, where players take on the roles of thieves belonging to the eight cartels that rule the criminal underworld of a massive fantasy city. The players come together to form a crew and take on a job, planning and executing a criminal scheme and earning the respect of their peers.
The game comes as a boxed set, with all the game materials needed for an entire gaming group to start playing. The game is designed to be easy to start playing, even on a moment’s notice. Once all of the players are familiar with the rules, it takes only minutes for one player to read through the scenario while the other players quickly make characters.
