I don’t know if this makes me selfish but I want to be your favourite. I want to be the person you go to when you’re happy or the first one you call when you feel broken at 2 am. I don’t want to be someone’s go to when others aren’t available. I don’t want someone to have deep conversations with at 12 am and the next day, be ignored for someone else. I don’t want to be used. I want to be seen. I want to be chosen. I want somebody else to believe that I’m special. I want somebody else to believe that I’m worthy. Because I already know it, I’m just waiting for someone else to see it.
dreamcatcher-777, Do you see it too? Then stop standing in the shadows and show me.
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 ^__^
