    • Mimic Chest!!!

      1 year ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      Many years ago I started hanging out with a wonderful group of Halo players who formed a clan called the Halo Wheelmen.  While I never officially joined their ranks I played many MANY games of Halo, Destiny, Gears, and a variety of other multiplayer games with them because they were good people in all the ways a person can be good.


      Fast forward more then a decade later and a few of those wonderful Wheelmen start working on a box for D&D players to carry all of their stuff. The Mimic Chest from Polymorph Crafts looked awesome, and those good people offered to send me one in advance of their Kickstarter.


      AND TODAY IT ARRIVED!!

      It sounds SO GOOD to roll dice in the dice tray, and they even made the bottom color blue because YEAH BLUE!!


      Mimic3.jpg


      I am very excited to use this in a D&D game! It's super functional and is gonna save me a lot of space in my bag for all of the random little things I usually have to bring!


      So yea, this might read like a commercial for their box.  But these are friends of mine who I have known for years, starting a small company, making a cool product, and are good people.  I have nothing but love for this, and am happy to preach all over the internet about how awesome Polymorph Crafts are.

      Today is Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the Jewish calendar. May this new year bring you and your family joy, happiness, and peace.


      DKMMdIGU8AAg6Kz.jpg

      It may be odd to think about a new year right now for most of us, as we are so engorged in the Gregorian calendar that the new year is still several months away. But a lot of the things we traditionally try to do at that time (change habits, make resolutions, make positive life changes, enjoy some nice champaign) are things can and should happen all the time.  So think of today as us Jews giving you a second chance at all of those New Years Resolutions you had for 2017.

      One of the coolest compliments I have ever received was having some talented photographers get excited to take pictures of an event I was running. And then GETTING those photos is pretty amazing! Our Dungeon Drunks D&D game at RTX was a blast, but now I'm starting to see the collection of shots that @DarkBowler and @ragingterror took and it's been an extra shot of joyful memories and this time in high definition!


      And now is a perfect time to share these pictures, as Dungeon Drunks was just announced as joining 9 other amazing podcasts and Wizards of the Coast for the Podcasts Of Annihilation event!! So if you want to hear what was going on in these lovely shots you should go subscribe to our podcast and listen to us play D&D!


      You can check out Connor's image gallery on his website, which includes not just Dungeon Drunks shots but stuff from all over RTX! And recently Nathan gave me a whole batch of finished photos and I am in such awe I had to share some!!


      A few shots of several of us:

      Years ago you buried a precious box beneath a sapling. What kind of tree is it now?

      Answered: Aug 10, 2017

      Dead. I turned the tree into wood for an oboe, some dice for D&D, a few sketchbooks for Luke, and this really nice box that I need to bury under a tree.

    • Hugs and Selfies

      2 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      My favorite part of any convention, but RTX in specific, is my friends. The ones I only see once or twice a year. The new ones I make over the course of a few days. The amazing people I get to hang out with all day every day for a few days.


      I'm trying to be better about taking pictures. Finding the right balance between enjoying the moment and documenting it for later. One of the ways I've tried to do that is be much better about taking pictures with people. Hugs and selfies.


      RTX2017HugsSelfies.jpg


      That's what RTX is about.

    • D&D RTX Gifts...

      2 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      The most recent episode of Dungeon Drunks had me drinking a mixer that included Hydra Hooch, a moonshine suffused with ghost peppers to make it THE HOTTEST THING ON THE PLANET.


      RTX2017DDHydraHooch.jpg



      This lethal but delicious concoction, as well as the amazing label, was crafted by @Ethan & @BunnyMonster who had been brewing this delight for months before RTX. We'd talked a bit about it ahead of time, brainstorming the snake oil that Waylon would be selling and what he would call it. It was such a wonderful gift I actually wrote it into the game I ran at RTX!


      If you were at that game, or heard it on the podcast, you know that might have been a mistake. :D


      There was plenty that could come home with me, but as nice as the bottle was I didn't want to risk glass in my checked bag. Fortunately @GoobertheGr8 helped fixed that problem!


      RTX2017DDGoober.jpg


      That is a gorgeous flask made for me (and others for my wonderful players) which was not only a lovely gift but PERFECT to put the Hydra Hooch in to save for the trip!


      RTX2017DDFlask.jpg


      So now I have a D&D flask filled with D&D drink that will kill me in medium quantities. I asked on Twitter for suggestions for what to mix this with and my Dad actually suggested pomegranate juice which ended up being DELICIOUS! I called it Dragon's Blood and that's what I drank last week.


      This next episode I'll probably go with what Beka recommended which was chocolate liqueur, but I will still have PLENTY after that. Any other suggestions?

    • Luke McKay Is Amazing At D&D

      2 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      I love Luke McKay for a large variety of reasons. One of those many reasons is that he is a wonderful partner for Dungeons & Dragons. He is a fun person to play with, a great DM, an awesome host of games, and will produce amazing art in the middle of games on the fly.


      When I moved out to Seattle and rekindled my love of D&D, one of my first chances to DM was at Luke's birthday party in 2011. He wanted to do a huge D&D party, so I brought the 4th Edition Red Box and we spent all day running through the adventure in that Starter Set.  It was Luke's first time playing D&D, it was one of my first experiences running a game, and it was a load of fun!


      LaurenDMAtLukeBDay2011Small.jpg


      Look at me doing Dungeons & Dragons & Drunks even way back then!


      For many years, while Luke still lived in Canada, as my home game ran through all kinds of adventures Luke would join us when he could.  Sometimes just a game or two, hanging out drawing stuff while we played. Sometimes he would run an NPC.  On rare occasions he would come down for chunks of time and be able to play in a whole campaign.  In early 2014 we created a bunch of high level characters and ran through the 4th edition version of Tomb of Horrors, which I've been thinking about recently with the new Tomb of Annihilation coming out soon.


      Luke played a Warforged Tank named Pulse. 


      PulseD&D2014.jpg


      Pulse had one job, and he did that job super well. Luke would run him in front of all the enemies and make them all come to him and fight him.  He was an old school tank; super hard to hit, had tons of health, and prevented anyone from running away from him.  Pulse was amazing, keeping deadly enemies away from squishier targets like my Hengeyokai Ranger.


      PulseKarian2014.jpg


      Karian was super fun to play, because as a Hengeyokai he could turn into a dog. No other animals, and not a wolf, but very specifically a DOG. So I played him like a mutt with the personality of a golden retriever. Happy, loyal, maybe a little dumb, and ADORABLE.


      KarianDog2014.jpg


      Not only was Luke great fun to play with, but after every game I'd look over at his sketchbook and he'd have some amazing bit of art. He managed to roll play, participate in combat, AND draw all at the same time!


      TombOfHorror2014.jpg


      We survived the Tomb of Horrors, and many other adventures. Luke has now run a few games, and continued to draw amazing characters.  He's my go to person when I need to talk through ideas and issues I'm having when I'm creating D&D adventures, and always has insightful comments and ideas. 


      Right now as I type this he's hard core printing books to bring to sell at RTX in a few days.  But even while he's doing that he's helping me finalize the D&D&D panel, and talking about drawing something special for the game.  Make sure to stop by his booth at RTX, say hi, and ask him about his latest D&D character. Maybe he'll show you his sketches.

      Hey, you made a journal post a while back about female Let's Players. I'm not sure if you're interested in watching some, or already have. I'm sure you've probably found this already. (But if not, then: www.aeterna.nl/forum/showthread.php?33-Female-Let%92s-player-list)

      Are you planning on doing a Let's Play in the near future?

      Finally listening to the LNJJ holiday special, and at the same time was linked to this. Figured it seemed appropriate for potentially dirty geeky things, although I'm not sure how well it would fit in the category of new things you could actually read on the air. At the very least, maybe you can enjoy it :) Also, I'll be back on Tuesday! No work!

      But I know it's been damaged and so will Verizon if something else goes wrong and I try to get a new one via warranty so I might as well just take the replacement that will be here today. The plus side is that I can use the old one to make sure the new one is set up correctly, heh.

      I'm so mad because the one side mission I decided not to do... was the one that started everything with Riddler and so I missed a huge chunk of stuff I could have been doing while I was going through the game.

      I beat everything, finished the stupid catwoman thing, and was like "well, let's check out the ol' church here..." and swore so much when I realized I was stumbling on what was missing from my entire game.

      I found a ton of ? trophies for catwoman/batman but that was it. So mad at myself, you don't even know.
