    And.....we are back. Worked a half day yesterday to catch up a bit but didn't have time to jump on here. I have a fuller then normal inbox and know that a couple of you reached out to me there. I will be responding this afternoon. Had an AMAZING GenCon. Potentially the best ever. Big things happening that I cannot discuss yet but hopefully soon. Great to see so many of you there. Apologies to @Zoxe again for not recognizing you upon meeting. My memory is crap. Too much lumberjack juice. Went a little crazy with the purchases this year. One of our biggest hauls ever. The shortlist: Monsterpocalypse, Aristeia, Crystal Clans, lots of minis for Arena Rex, Guild Ball, Hordes, Pathfinder playtest, Vampire V5, L5R beginner box, lots of dice, and a bunch of other stuff. Root the game was a big hit with the crew. So much that I am sure I am forgetting something. Our crew did an amazing job. @Zoe took the lead on the booth this year so I could hobnob with some other businesses and it worked very well. Hats off to her. She has staved off her daily firing for at least one day.

    Ok so this is my personal opinion, but having received so many wonderful wooden gaming products from Dog Might Games, I have fallen in love with chechen, a very beautiful wood. It has become my favorite wood so far that they have put up for sell and that is saying something because they have a lot of beauties in their shop. 😜 The beauty in this wood lies in that is it chatoyant which means when the light hits it, it exhibits beautiful changing luster throughout the wood. It also has a strong golden blonde and reddish brown tone, highlighted with other dark streaks. Simply put, its pretty stunning. Below are some youtube links I put up that show off chatoyancy in the wood. As well as some pictures. However chechen, will always look way better in person than in pictures due the chatoyancy it exhibits in lighting! Don't forget that when you think about which wood to pick! Pick chechen! Please feel free to add any wonderful DMG pictures of chechen that you might have! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSJV8LVkleQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-0v46fRQgo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HgIwch1XQ

    With the arrival of our sentinels, I put out all my dice on the game mat to see how many I had. My husband decided to do the same. Turns out he has one more set of dice than I do, as well as more miscellaneous dice. (Mine is on the right).

    Noooiiiccceeee....Dont feel bad missing me I was there only for a day And it was a last minute add from an event I was going to this past weekend (smashing pumpkins in Pittsburgh on Saturday). I’m planning for a 4 day visit in 2019 though so pending a big event you can count me for that. You doing grandcon? @Konas recognized me as did @Lindsey from a year ago. I was so excited to meet the others I hadn’t met before including @Shamgar who talked to me more about his role. I would have hung out longer but they have a business to run and that has to come first than talking to a gourd they know they have locked as a customer. I appreciated they spent a little time with me though. did you post a pic of your loot?

    So I went to my first gencon and....I was completely overwhelmed lol. It’s okay though because I was only there for a day and my main purpose was to scout and pick up a few things. I’ve learned the following things from my pains as a rookie. 1). Plan ahead and pick events close to each other- I was inefficient with my time because I kept traveling back and forth and lost key demo time. I need to plan my days out better and make sure I do things close together before moving to another section. 2) you can never have enough water- I read the tips for water and brought 3 bottles but that wasn’t enough. Apparently the aura of gamers has an energy that slowly dehydrates you resulting in -1 penalties to energy and hydration levels every 15 mins. 3)the curse of FOMO on your wallet is real- I thing I was good for the most part....but I had to hold myself back on the hard sale. Ever dell was a big temptation that I avoided but rise of tribes caught me . Always good to remind yourself that fomo is a sales tactic most of the time. 4) gencon is crazy but can be a lot of fun. It got too busy at times and I was sad I missed out in being able to connect with people more often but it’s a lot of fun and I’m hoping to go all 4 days next year and bring some massive gourdian style with it The Loot:

    Hey so this is the order that came before a mail hold was placed! Will have to update with the next one. The hero sleeves are the perfect gift for stocking stuffers, small present of nice! And also for people I don’t quite know well enough to order something more custom. Pretty sure these will become the thing I give out most often. Has definitely solidified the fact that a bone box is now an inevitability for me. These were two of the misfits and they don’t seem to have any sort of defect as far as I can tell! Love how light and secure they are. It did take a bit of finangling to make sure a whole set fit but once I got that down it was easy. Don’t think a wood set would fit though. (some of my photos didn’t load will add more with the next arrival)

    Oooh! I didn't back it either, but I just played Vast a few weeks ago and it's a ton of fun. Definitely worth a buy when you get the chance :D. It's on my 'to buy' list too, was borrowing it from a friend, but now they live too far away to mooch off of...

    Oof da! Bird's eye Bocote Sentinel is even more beautiful in person. Sadly my photography skills/camera don't do it justice. You'll have to come to Minnesota and see it in person. p.s. I still don't feel bad about beating @Thomas Browne by a second or two for this beauty. Side views of the Sentinels.

    Holy Hannah! My Redheart Sentinel finally arrived! The sister to @tgpumpkin's. I suddenly have a desire to play a game in the middle of a pumpkin patch. p.s. Those of you waiting on Redheart for your CoCos, you will not be disappointed. p.p.s. Sorry about the glare. When UPS said by end of day they weren't kidding. The boxes arrived at 7 pm.

    I just realized I have not posted in this thread... Name: Akilah Swiftfoot Race: Savannah Class: Skald Best Known Skill: Singing at one end of the house and the next second being on the other end without notice. Famous for: The war cry she gives before going into battle Most Ashamed of: Unable to walk slippery ledges With her constant chatter, one would think she would go into oratory as a bard, but when she senses danger, she flies into a fury of long legs and screams. This tough cat will prove to be a great travel companion, and a good fighter when need be.

    I've been painting on and off through the summer and am finally ready to show off the results. My sister and neice gave me a two-piece mimic set for Christmas that I adored painting. I bought fire holders that I was thrilled to see the final results. The legs really look like they are made from metal. Hard to imagine these were all solid white once. I can't wait to sneak my mimics into a RPG. For Christmas, I gave my sister a bar set. Here are some of the pieces. The wagon came separately from the rest. Here is the whole bar set minus the dancer and bar keeper which I am still working on. The table to the right and its stools are from a different set. Beware trying to steal from this tavern. The drinks carry quite a bite.

    Nice choice, Zoe! Looks like it will serve you and your dice well. Will look forward to showing mine off when they arrive.
