    Three Kingdoms (Redux) This game is 3 player ONLY, which is unusual. It documents the bid for power between the Wei, Wu, and Shu dynasties in old China. Worker placement/bidding. I used all but 2 trays of my two CoCos, and they wound up holding all the components PERFECTLY, and as you can see, Three Kingdoms has a lot of components! Full board set up at the start of the game, with the supply a then individual player trays in front of each of us. A close up of my personal trays. I ALWAYS take the dragon when I use my CoCos, because it's special. A close up of the general supply. Turns out some of my magnets link even when the dots don't all face the same way, and that was advantageous here.

    Been awhile since I painted a humanoid figure. Here is my recent one, before I have sealed her.

    Lousy picture, but beggars can't be choosers, no? Cocos and a skirmish box to go with Massive Darkness. The problem with painting the big monster and hero minis last, is that the ones you want to shine are just primer. p.s. @tgpumpkin, notice the Halloween pencil that Drew was using.

    Threshing Eve had arrived in Elmsford. The last of the wheat was finally stocked away in the town stores, and most of the farmers felt a comforting, if not entirely not comfortable, weight in their purses. Elmsford wasn’t exactly bustling most of the year, but Threshing Eve had a way of pulling folks into town, even the farmers from the the east bank of the Rhill. In the corner of Elmsford’s only inn, a Storyseller sat in waiting. His once-red cloak was road-worn to a brown, and his soft boots looked in need of a cobbler’s love. Times were tight, but Threshing Eve offered the promise of a few extra coins, or at least rounds of drinks and a warm meal. As the farmers and townsfolk wandered into the inn in twos and threes, he twirled his talefeather deftly in his left hand. He glanced up with a sudden sparkle in his chestnut eyes, and began to speak, seemingly to no one in particular, but with a strong voice audible from across the room. “You all heard the one of the Wickersneak? Aye, yes, that’s an old one, worn thin like a cheap halfpenny. Let’s see, I caught wind of a piece of a tale down near Higginsford. But that one’s still half-baked at best. Maybe with seasoning and another sprinkle of rumors, it'll be ready in a fortnight or so.” The Storyseller leaned back in his creaky oak chair and looked out the window, his eyes momentarily lost in thought. “Ah, I think I have a tale for you all. Mayhap you’ve heard it, as it’s an old one, but mayhap not. Let’s wait a spell and when the light dims it’ll be ripe for a-tellin. Maybe some more folk will come in and fancy a listen. Now, I will say, a tale such as this is liable to leave a fellow a bit parched, I’m just sayin’.” The Storyseller drained his ale, wiped his mouth with a grimy sleeve, and looked around expectantly. “Do you all know how this inn got its name?” Bill Sunderland chimed in, “Aye, Kamrin’s Papa’s Papa’s named it. Old Man Khanas fashioned the sign, and it’s held up mighty fine, despite being a bit worn. I heard they brought the board all the way down the Rhill from up past Ledford.” The Storyseller chuckled mirthlessly as he eyed his now-empty wooden mug, “Well with a story as fine as that, perhaps I should hang up my travel sack and pass my talefeather off to you lad. No, not the story of the naming. What I’ve got for you lot is the story behind the naming. I tell you what, once folks have a chance to knock some of the dust off their boots and whet their appetite for a proper tale, gather round and hear of the Sapphire Stag.” (OOC): Come join in for a little narrative-driven adventure. I'll post once per day, in the evening (Pacific Time). Please keep your posts in-character, add (OOC) if you need to. It'll just be a fun little one-off tale, and we'll see where the adventure takes us. I haven't run an forum post RPG before, so it'll be a new experience for me as well. Now let's see who else might be in the Sapphire Stag on this Threshing Eve in a small nowhere town along the bank of the Rhill...

    Thanks @Barb Bliss! I really liked the finish on the Dice Chest too. @Phogg is correct, the bottle of booze is Crown Royal Maple. The new stein did very well in helping me polish of Half of it that night. Yup, can't deny that the Dice collection I have built up is LARGE... but how many is too many (LOL)?

    A young elf glances at the storyteller, but pretends to be more interested in her unappetizing stew . Humans. No wonder they have such short lives eating this greasy mess. Mossbloom turns her back to the storyteller but her sharp ears keep listening. Her hazel eyes dart around the room, looking for someone. Though the room was warm, she kept her hood up, hiding her pointed ears and casting her face into shadow. In her boot, she can feel an eleven dagger pressed against her leg. Easy to pull out if needed. But likely there will be no fight tonight, but one should always be prepared.

    Royals Area control where you influence the nobles of various countries across several different periods of time. For this I used the "everybody gets one" CoCo I got so everyone could get one of the double wells, and am also utilizing DMG's card stands

    A long time ago, my ex and I were sitting by the river to watch the boat races. Not far from us, some guys started stringing up "do not cross" yellow tape. Let's stay here, and see what happens. What could possible go wrong? Turns out it they were setting up a fireworks launching pad. My guess is that we could have never gotten that close now. We decided to stay because when could we ever get this close again, and wanted to see what was involved. When they were shooting them off, bits and pieces of burned and exploded cardboard rocket cases were falling all around us, and we could feel the concussive blasts against our bodies. Stupid to be that close, but it was awesome.

    Two pictures of the event (not taken by me). One is from the butte looking at the park where we were and the other is a cool picture of the fireworks off the butte.

    The weather delayed the parade, and it was less populated than normal, including the statue of liberty. Here are some pics in case you are interested. Mother loon and her baby sitting on her back. World War II planes flew overhead. Linda. We were the 4th boat in the parade. The pelican took this fourth off. Does DMG have a branch office in St Paul?

    Happy July 4th! Somewhere around 15 years ago - maybe closer to 17 now - I started a family tradition of hosting my immediate family at my house. At the time, Mrs. Zoxe and I were just getting started out, one brother was still in high school, another in college, and my parents were both working to pay those bills. My brothers always had plans with their friends so we planed our "July 4th" party for the weekend after and never actually on the day. That's always left Mrs. Zoxe and I open on the actual day. Fast forward to 2018 - they're all married. There are grandkids, and now my mom and dad are retired. My brothers are now pulling "dad duty" and all their friends are married with kids too, so we actually could do the BBQ on the 4th but that's not the tradition. So today, I slept in, have some coffee going, will fry an egg for breakfast and then I'll start airbrushing some minis.

    A masochistic game of chance where victors get to indulge on my kind minced and rolled into baked confections? I think not. Filthy savages.....
