The advent calendars are listed! etsy.com/listing/741556148/dic

Here's what's in one of the red ones; CW'd for spoiler in case you want to buy yourself one.

Yes, somehow this all fits in a flat-rate Priority box. *does magic*

I'm about ready for this year to be over. So I made next year's resolution.

I played exactly one pickup tabletop game at a game store, ever

a guy got mad at me for using NSEW directions on a map in a fantasy setting because β€œthey’d have different names for it” so I scribbled some shit and handed him a map that had the directions:

Morth
South (pronounced β€œsooth”)
Squeast
Thwest

he gave me the world’s dirtiest look and 5 minutes later when I described something as being β€œabout ten bmiles morth by morthsqueast of here” he left the table and walked out of the shop

I never saw him again

I had a πŸ’‘ moment and took my four milk crates full of minky (which are supposed to be on the wall like this i.pinimg.com/originals/eb/12/e except I have no wall space) and arranged them on the desk where the light box goes, and put the light box on top of them. This adds 13" to the ~29" desk height and you guys it is SO much better.

I mean it's still next-to-impossible to light "transparent dice+black dice tray" but at least I have more time to check for stray fuzz/cat hair.

This is the smallest dice tray; a smidge cramped for this design but I do have several sets of these dice so I can do more. And I have quite a few designs that use that colorway (I, uh, kinda like it a lot) so I can do some variations.

The inside of this tray is 5 x 5.5", the tiniest one they make. The 10" round (8" interior diameter) will give me a lot more room to stretch out, but the components are quite a bit pricier.

Going in the shop this weekend when I settle on a price.

(It does not help that I am not really a super-experienced D&D-specifically-Forgotten-Realms person, and I have not quite internalized the "goblins are just baaaaad" thing that the game pretty much has baked-in.)

My 5e character, a rogue swashbuckler, half-elf from the Moonshaes or maybe Utter East who happens to speak Goblin, has spent most of her first three levels just absolutely massacring goblins, sometimes in their sleep, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Not towns, to be sure, just Bad Guy bases (e.g. Cragmaw Castle since we're playing through Phandelver), but still.

I'm very much a "just jump in and see where the character takes itself" person but, uh, not sure where this one is going.

It is now 36 minutes into our game and we have almost gotten past the "what a week IRL you guys amirite" stage.

This vinyl comes in gunmetal (pictured) and silver, both of them rainbow iridescent.

Very squamous. Much effulgent. Wow.

It was supposed to be game day but the DM has a sinus infection and one of our four players has bailed due to work schedule again. πŸ˜”

Guess I'll just sew dragons.

Just realized that the 2035 Amtrak projection is only 15 years from now. 2035 will never not be a Car Wars date for me ("current" was always 50 years from the publication date of any particular bit; Deluxe Car Wars came out in 1985).

Honestly for awhile there the Car Wars timeline was comically wrong but I'm starting to feel like it's getting back on track. sites.google.com/site/arpscarw

Fourth session of D&D. I am kinda not a fan of voice-only stuff, but it's better than nothing.

So most of the foiled fabrics I got this week are cottons, not stretch fabrics, so only good for dragon wings and accents unless I draft a pattern suitable for non-stretch fabrics, like the velvet dragons but large enough to turn this uncooperative stuff.

But there are other things I can make with non-stretch fabrics.

Ooh maybe today I'll run those minis in the resin printer...

*checks weather*

93% humidity. So, maybe not today.
