i have wanted to make this for ages

lumpatronics  asked:

Hey, so, long story short: I'm hosting an 11 man session, ages 12-24. I'm determined to do it, I was just wondering if you had any tips for organization. I've already set up a start for them, and I'm preparing the campaign, I just don't don't want it to fall apart because I couldn't keep track of all the players, or something similar

1. Easy access to rules and stats: make a reference sheet for the session with all of the monster stats so you don’t have to flip through the book. I would also make a sheet of rules that you may have to refer to during the game.

2. Player ability cards: have the players write down their abilities ( name and effect) so they do not have to reference the book as much.

3. Initiative tracker: have a piece of paper off to the side with 2 columns of boxes (enough for all the players and about as many monsters as you think you will have them fight every battle. Make sure both columns have the same amount of boxes. Write all player names down on slips of paper that will fit in boxes. Do the same with monster by writing m1, m2, m3, etc. put these in the first column. The second one is for tracking conditions. I would say make about 4 or so of every condition. Move the papers around in order of who goes first every battle.

4. Quick reference for character names: if using a screen, put slips of paper that go over both sides of the screen with player name and character name on them.

5. Combat: there might be a way to speed combat up a bit by rounding down monster health. If a monsters health is 17, make it 15. If it is 23, make it 20. This will make combat a little quicker. Also add some weak monsters. Ones that might not need more than a hit or 2 to die. Also, if all players are comfortable with it, make a chart of the playera stats, like AC and HP so out can reference it faster and know for sure if you hit or not.

6. Ready the players: give them a heads up when their turn is next so they have a couple minutes to think about what they are going to do.

7. Store charts: when the players go to an area where there are stores, hand them a copy of a store reference chart with all the types of stores and what they sell so all the players can shop at once. And can even browse through it while doing other things in the area.

8. Only what you need: only make charts and reference material based on what you need. You should try playing a game or 2 and pay attention to the problems you run into and try to solve them for the next game.

9. Helping hand: find a 2nd DM if you feel you may have to much to keep track of.

This is all I can think of at the moment. Just try and set yourself up with time and efficiency in mind. talk to your players about what they can do or not do to help move the game along quicker.

anonymous asked:

Hey girl love your blog but have a question I recently started dating someone my age but they are so broke just like me. Despite knowing I myself am always broke he will always expect me to pay for everything we do/eat and like never pays for anything and he wants us to live together but honestly I don't feel like I can afford it. Any advice or is it an obvious dump him situation? Thanks

I would tell him to get lost if he was making me pay for everything wtf! Me and my man always go halfs on things we pay for. Relationship has got to be a two way thing! Or talk to him and say you can’t afford to keep paying so you have to start coughing up too

Pls boss just give me the reigns for the social media page. The only two people who have access to it never update it and don’t have an abundance of pictures of the dogs. Dog of the Month hasn’t been updated in a year. The last post was from November about a coworkers missing dog. Where she comments about how she found him dead. That’s the first thing people see when they come to our page. The bummer ass dead dog post. JUST GIVE MY MEDIA OBSESSED MILLENIAL ASS THE REIGNS, DAMN IT. I could make it great. I get told to send the pictures to my coworker and that she’ll upload them but she never does. PEOPLE WANT TO SEE THEIR DOGS HAVING FUN OK. You know what kind of kennels don’t upload pictures? GROSS ONES. SHITTY ONES. We’re a nice establishment but we need a social media presence in this day of age.

Y’all need to be fucking better about the way you interact with young artists on here. And don’t you dare see this and think “oh I’m a minor so this post isn’t for me” cause you know damn well half the inappropriate asks artists get are from other young people. Think of all the kids who were contacting the creators of BMC and asking sexual questions about the characters. Think of how many asks you see popular artists get with sex jokes and talking about which of the characters they draw are bottoms, and how often you see them have to post asking their followers to stop, and remember that most of the people in our communities are minors. 
We constantly post about how the adults on tumblr need to be careful with the way they interact with minors, and they do, but i can say from experience that more often than not they’re not the one trying to discuss inappropriate things with random people they’ve never spoken to. Being around someone’s age doesn’t give you a pass to make them uncomfortable. 

I’m so tired of hearing my underage friends complain about all the inappropriate asks they get, even after saying time and again they want people to stop. It’s not fair to them at all. Have respect for the people you follow, they aren’t your friends, you don’t know them, sending them asks about this kind of stuff is so uncool and uncalled for. 

And hell, this doesn’t even apply to underage artists. There is no reason for you to send unprompted inappropriate asks to people you follow, no matter their age. You have no idea how they feel about what you’re saying, if they’ve had uncomfortable experiences. You don’t magically become chill with sex jokes and talking about character’s sexual lives because you turned 18. Just show people the respect they deserve??

Hoe when you're not a hoe

So, there’s a lot y'all don’t know about me. Some things you’re just never gonna no. But let me let you in on this: I am shy as hell, awkward, and this is a post on how to hoe when you’re not a hoe.

Maybe you wanna experiment? Maybe you wanna be a hoe? Maybe you’re ready to hoe but too shy? Maybe you wanna look like a bad bitch? Or maybe you’re a hoe but you’re not but you are but you’re not- either way. I gotchu.

Confidence is key

Of course, the first one I add is on confidence you think. No, but seriously, confidence.

  •  If you don’t have conidence, fake it till you make it. If you pretend like you’re a bad bitch, you will eventually be a bad bitch.
  • Change your walk. yes, your walk. There’s a walk that will not only make you look like a bad bitch, but will make you feel like a bad bitch. Shoulders back, head high (? straight basically) and let your boobs lead the way. You want your arms swinging by your side casually and your hips doing it too, make it look casual. So don’t overdo it.
  • Tell yourself how much you love you every day.
  • Wear clothes that make you feel sexy. For me it’s a variety of things, but put me in skinny jeans, a tank top, adidas and let me put on some highlighter && I’ll be ready for anything.
  • Work  on yourself. Improve constantly. Instead of just being upset about your flaws, write them down and figure outhow to solve them. 

Ways to hoe

This all depends and such, but here you go. You may wanna be a sneaky hoe, a cute hoe, a obvious hoe. It doesn’t matter, these should help in some way.  So you can get that ish.

  • Learn the art of seduction. Seducing is a skill. If you want to seduce someone you should learn it. You can find tons of things online, everywhere. There’s sites with ways to seduce, give blow jobs, eat girls out…etc. Learn. Practice your expressions with random people (not forcing them into anything sexually, yall, just lots of eye contact…etc)  but do it in a way that you seem innocent. Gauge their reactions.
  • Sexting. Alright, this is for those that want to feel good sexually. This is for the one’s that are too shy to do anything up close and personal, but want to hoe. Or anyone, tbh. Sexting is a very common thing. If you want to sext, do your research. Don’t show your face…etc. You can always fake your confidence with sexting.
  • Hoeing that isn’t exactly hoeing. Maybe you like the aesthetic but don’t want dick. Maybe you want to wear racy things and flirt, but not fuck. I gotchu. Your goal is to wear something sexy. I mean sexy. Buy lingerie and wear it every chance you get. Mini skirts are your best friend. Flrit with body language, not just words.
  • Be your best. Be confident. If you want to wear makeup, do it. Girl ya highlighter is poppin.
  • Clubs & parties. Do I need to explain this one? Fuck who you want, boo!
  • The other options, are different. I won’t “recommend” them but I also won’t tell you not to do them. I’m not recommending them because of the struggle…etc. I’ve seen off of just this site alone. You could be an escort, a sugar baby, a stripper, a cam girl…etc But if you even consider this shit. Do your fucking research. Be of a legal age. Know what you’re doing before you go into it. And if you do go into it, have fun, baby.

DON’T. TAKE. SHIT.

I mean that. Don’t let ANYONE put you down for what you wear, do, or want to do. You do you. You wear what you want, do what you want, and take what you want. If they try to pull some bullshit, show them that you are a queen.

To look like a bad bitch:

Wear what makes you confident. But here’s some things I’ve just noticed as I see a lot of them or something.  In general:

  • Get your eyebrows done
  • Make sure your eyeliner & shadow is matching 
  • Highliiigghhhttt, highlight, highlight more highlight yes
  • Matte lips are common
  • So are glossy lips though
  • SPARKLE, GLITTER, YES
  • Chic/baddie/badass clothes
  • Coconut oil ur hair
  • Look at all the clear skin posts yall
  • Shave your legs
  • Smell good
  • Thigh high boot/heels are p common
  • Bbodycon happens a bit
  • But tbh wear what you wanna weat && love yourself

Please remember to be safe doing any of the things. Watch out for allergies when you read hoe tip posts, don’t follow everything you see, carry a self defense weapon, learn some self defense. Get it, boo.

So after seeing so many amazing sculpts on my dash lately I was tempted to try and sculpt again too, I had forgotten how soothing it can be, I wanted to try and sculpt Nalia to help me draw her more consistently but a sphere quickly turned into Solas because he seems to be what I default to haha but I’m proud of the result!! here is what I got in two hours, next one will be Nalia!! I swear the hair is going to kill me

Zbrush still has the most alien interface ever created and I think I’m frying my pc with this but poking a 3D clay ball is so much fun I recommend it

Prompto on snapchat

No I’m not at all. I think honestly he’s really, really suited to the job, and Harry’s really good at what he does. And I wanted to congratulate him on his massive moment! Like, being in a Christopher Nolan action film — how amazing! Super cool. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m planning on having a little event with my team and some of my family and going down and all of us watching it together, because I wanna make sure it’s in a nice setting. I haven’t been to a cinema in ages, and I like going to the cinema.

1) The issue with Kylie Jenner is that she does not realise how much influence she has on young girls and continues to deny that she had work done on her body. She just needs to own up to some things .

2) There is nothing wrong with makeup but when you constantly send messages throughout the world with your unrealistic face and body goals, something is wrong .

3) Don’t come at me with the excuse that it’s her choice and freedom. We wish the world was that simple. People are doing stupid things because it is their right? Freedom? Choice? I call that bull. Just because it’s your choice and I know it’s bad, I can’t and won’t respect it.

Edit 1: 4) Being sexualised and at such a young age is not admirable.

5) She appropriates black culture and is willingly ignorant.

P.S. At the end of the day, what girls are learning from her are superficial things. You want to deny this truth, you can.

Edit 2: P.P.S. I really wanted to add something. I know how influenced Kylie is because of her family, but sometimes I just think that you can’t make that excuse all the time because today we have so many resources that tell us what is right or wrong. Just because you are ignorant about something doesn’t give you the pass to use the “family - influenced pass”. I also understand that she felt the need to be something she isn’t, but when you have that money, can’t you choose a better lifestyle or something which doesn’t make you feel pressured? What irks me is that she complains about feeling pressured by everyone but at the same time does the thing she “realises” is not good. She is so hypocritical. I also understand that life can’t be changed that easily but I have never seen her make the effort. It all feels so shallow.

*:・゚✧How to find time to read*:・゚✧

hello everyone! i have decided to write this masterpost because this topic has always been quite important to me: especially now in the summertime, i find myself packed in books i have to read for school and/or that i want to read for personal culture, but the time, as usual, seems to be never enough.
Driven by the need of having social life, getting enough sleep, studying for next year’s school lectures and also read everything i want (and have to), i have managed to develop this method that allows me to do all my duties and still have enough time to read four books during a day.
so here’s some steps that will defenitely help you find your time to read!


1. Try to wake up early. Maybe this wasn’t what you wanted to hear but it is fundamental if you want to have more time. If you are not a morning person, i suggest downloading the app alarmy (android download // apple download). I have been using it for ages and it really works for me - you simply take a pic of something before you go to sleep (for example i took a pic of the bathroom sink) and in the morning the alarm won’t go off unless you take the exact same pic, so that you are literally forced to get up. (I have a few methods to wake myself up in th morning, if you’re interested I’ll make a masterpost about this!)


2. Read as first thing in the morning This is actually quite interesting. Reading as first thing in the morning is incredibly beneficiant since it actually activates the brain cells and it makes you feel more awaken and productive since the very beginning of the day, expecially if you read something you deeply enjoy. I love waking up, washing my face and going back to bed to read half an hour or so The Art of Being Happy by Shopenhauer  while i drink a glass of iced water. I truly reccomend you to try this because it really sets the tone of your day.


3. Read in between your study sessions. If you follow the pomodoro method you should be a step ahead in this point but even if you don’t, every day is the right day to start something new! The pomodoro method is basically a method in which you study for 25 minutes and then take a 5 minutes break. I have modified this method to make it more suitable for my needs, and so i usually study for 35 mins and then i have an 10 minutes break; during this break i manage to read some pages, and it motivates me both to work harder during the session and to remain focused!


4. Read half an hour before lunch and dinner and half an hour later. it seems pretty dumb but it is not: before and after a meal are possibly the times in our day where we are most likely to be distracted by hunger or by lazyness; so instead of forcing ourselves on doing work that wont’t be productive, a better option would be to just stop and relax our minds by reading. By doing this, we will gain two hours out of our busy day to read without wasting any study time. 


5. Listen to audiobooks!!!! I literally cannot stress enough how convenient audiobooks are. You can do anything else but still be reading! Another way to take advantage of audiobooks is by having the book under the eyes and just listen to the audiobook and follow in the book. This lowers by so freaking much the chances of get distracted, and it will make the reading more fluid and, for some, interesting (Luckily, youtube is full of free audiobooks of almost any classic book you want to read so you won’t have to pay for audiobooks)

so, to conlude this masterpost, let’s do the math:
We have 24 hours. Lets say we wake up at 6.30. We will read an hour and then we will start our day. We accomplish from 8 to 11 am 3 pomodoro study sessions with 24 mins of reading. Then we have half an hour before and half an hour after lunch. We manage to make 5 sessions form 2 to 7 pm, with 40 mins of reading.
Another half an hour before dinner and half an hour after. If i’m not wrong, we managed to read about 4 hours before evening, without stealing any time to the study and having the whole night ahead to go to sleep early, have social life or, most likely, continue to reading for another couple of hours


If you have read all the way to here, i am so thankful for your existence and for your patience, I truly do hope this masterpost will help you!!! If you have any suggestions or question or anything feel completely free to message me ≧◡≦

An open letter to Klance shippers from a Shaladin:

Hey guys!  So, I’m sure if you’re in this tag you know what this is a post about, so I won’t waste my words on explaining, and just wanted to say a few things.

If you’re a Klance shipper who isn’t an anti: you’re fab, just keep doing what you’re doing

If you’re a Klance shipper who is holding to their anti guns: Yikes, my guy, watch out for that hypocrisy; careful not to reach too hard or your arms are gonna fall off

If you’re a Klance shipper who is thinking about dropping the ship after the news: Please, please don’t do that.  If you’re invested in it and it makes you happy, don’t let some dumb shits wreck it for you.  Because here’s something I want to emphasize: the holes in the anti argument have been gaping from the beginning, and those arguments were only created to take out the competition.  Any Shaladin worth their salt (and trust me, we have a lot of it) will have your back.

While we’re at it, I want to emphasize one thing:

Literally no Shaladins/Sheithers actually think Klance is pedophilia.  This is a satirization of how antis will take anything that might remotely have any kind of age gap and dub it such.  Trust me, we don’t think you’re pedophiles.

If you’re a Klance shipper who still doesn’t like Sheith: Bro, that’s fine.  I have plenty of NoTPs.  Just don’t judge the people who do.  We can coexist.

If you’re a Klance shipper who was an anti but is now realizing that the anti movement is bullshit: Confession time: I used to be one, after a fashion.  It’s so, so easy to get caught up in that sort of whirlpool of toxicity and manipulation.  You can get out, and there is a really nice section of the Klance fandom who you can still hang with, where you can focus on uplifting your ship instead of tearing other ones down.  Trust me, it’s so much more rewarding, and spending time with things you love instead of things you hate will make you so much happier.

If you’re feeling up to it, check out this post.  Please consider what you’re doing.  And know that there are plenty of people willing to help you out if you need it.

I’ll also say: I won’t fight with anyone over this.  If you reblog this to complain, or with negativity, you’ll just find yourself blocked.

High Lords Comforting

Rhys: Has this down to a science; back rubs and gentle kisses. “What’s wrong?” Impossible to be denied because his eyes are so wide and pleading; but if he can’t get Feyre to talk, he just turns on SexyMode™ until she becomes annoyed/aroused enough to talk to him.

Feyre: A good listener. Lets Rhys rant for ages. “I know this must be difficult for you, and I’ll always be here.” “Thank you, Feyre darling. I can’t believe it…this betrayal hit home.” “Yes…Cassian shouldn’t have opened your favorite bottle of wine without asking.”

Helion: Smiles everywhere, lots of pleasant touching, whispering foul things that just make his lover laugh so hard. Will do anything to make them smile again. Do they want to see him perform a dance routine? Get Sexy and I Know It cued up, here comes Helion.

Thesan: Cuddles his Peregryn lover. “What are you–” “Shhhhhhh, I’m being soothing.” “Oh, I’m doing alright–” “Shhhhhhh, you need to be soothed.” “No, really, nothing’s wrong–” “Shhhhhhhhhhh!”

Kallias: Definitely builds a pillow fort or, even better, an igloo for him and Viviane to escape into if she’s feeling blue. They can make little snowmen, and he likes to tickle her until she starts to giggle. “Has anyone seen the High Lord?” “Ah…he’s in his igloo.” “AND I’M NOT COMING OUT UNTIL MY WIFE SMILES.”

Tarquin: Mild internal panicking at the thought of something being wrong. But he’s a comforter; brings his lover everything that they find joy in. Will eat ice cream in bed with them, takes them to watch the sunset, they read books together. Its all familiar and soothing and comfortable.

Beron: Doesn’t know something is wrong; doesn’t care. Doesn’t have lovers because ew

Tamlin: Smiles gently, tips up his lover’s chin and brushes away a strand of their hair. Kisses them on the forehead. “You know what you need to make you feel better?” he whispers softly, his lips like a butterfly kiss on their forehead. “What?” Another kiss on the tip of the nose, and then, “SoLiTARy COnFineMEnT” before he throws them in a locked room. “iT bUiLdS ChaRAcTeR!”

You are the dancing queen, 

who replaces spleens, 

dominating the DDR machine.

Lots and lots of Poppy.  When I played DAO I didn’t harden Alistair, and he and Poppy ran off into the sunset together as Wardens.  But, I’ve been working on a little AU where Alistair became King and married Poppy.  She’d make a pretty good Queen IMO.  They’re pretty happy & they have an adorable ginger baby. I wanted to draw some of her outfits b/c why not?  There are more in my head, so there might be another Poppy dump in the near future.

Bonus speedpaint!!
