    I purchased a wooden box shaped like a book that I'm currently lining with felt an faux leather, with small dividers to hold dice, pens, mini figs and tokens that will help track spells and such for when I play DnD.

    the outside I plan on covering with random runes and will use the whole thing as another prop for my characters story.

    This week was meant to be a busy one leading up to the arrival our our baby on Monday. This week was meant to be filled with hospital appointments (midwife's and ultrasounds) we got to Tuesday before all those plans went out the window.

    My wife had a gestational diabetes appointment on Tuesday and was having some pains in her lower abdomen, the endocrinologist wouldn't let her leave without seeing someone about the pains. The pains didn't stop and only got worse over the evening until close to midnight we were told baby needed to come out, after lots of waiting because other people were in a bit more of an emergency than us we had out little girl at 0715 Wednesday morning, a tiny 5lb 4oz and 47 cm 32 weeks on the damn knocker. All the nurses have told us she is a great size for being so early and she was a 1 in 80,000 birth because she was an en caul birth.

    Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of that and neither did anyone in the operating theatre. So that's been my week.

    Wow that is a hell of a super power I've never thought of!

    So I'm gonna tell you in this rely just because. We did a one shot last night all 10th level and it was the most insane yet amazingly fun session we've had in ages, knowing that whatever we do won't really matter we all went for it.

    I played a shadow sorcerer and need to play that one again hopefully from first level or a lower level because I need to connect with them a bit more and really role play all the things with their personality. I'm all sorts of excited about the thought of that!

    Our DM used the Reincarte spell for this and traded the egg in place of the gold cost. One of the party wanted to hacth the egg and use it as a mount... Most of us really advised against this but he was so hell bent on trying he won us over with the idea of whatever happened it would be fun to watch. That character was a gnome so no doubt would have been eaten.

    I was hoping you would see the thread, it sounds like you will be running the show very soon. I'll have to read up on those as soon as I have a minute.

    Most of the campaigns our DMs are running are heavy homebrew stuff, it's been fun so far but these other modules would be a blast to have a shot at as well. Time is the big issue for most of us unfortunately, damn work and life and such lol

    That is exactly how I've been with my other characters and also been playing about the same time lol

    My first character was a Rogue that I just didn't connect with at all, a paladin was after that and again didn't feel it. My druid is fantastic because I can play with different ways his personality works say I've spent more time as a Dire Wolf than in my human form then I exaggerate different things, like threats to myself or the party must be stopped immediately. When I spend more time in non shaped form it's because I'm throwing heals (this is mostly when our cleric isn't there for the week) then his personality is far more calm and just more socially awkward than anything else.

    He had already planned out the times we ghost out then also had the idea that if one of us couldn't make it one week then that character would ghost for the session.

    we have done similar things to that lol I've also been making a list of names of my ancestors, our bard has a magical instrument but isn't using it the way our DM had in mind, while chatting about different things with the campaign he brought this up to me and while in game I mentioned to our bard "Delg said while you play well, you play that wrong."

    Other times when we are staring down a TPK he will pass me a note saying as much and I'll spin it out as one of the others telling us not to do whatever dumb thing we are about to do.

    I didn't put too much about my new character up because I thought my post had gotten a bit long as is, so I'll put it here :)

    My new character is a Shaman based on the class from WoW that has been made up as a homebrew character I found online. What I originally had in mind was he meditates and speaks with the spirits to have a better understanding of what they are all babbling about, one day while meditating a new voice came to him one that radiated power and told Torvak to seek out the party of adventures, assist in whatever way they need then when the barbarian, Bryseis falls, she will live on with him. Torvak will carry her spirit with him to continue the fight for her.

    This ended up getting changed for the better, the original curse was lifted shortly after it was put on us all (thankfully) then by the blessing of the moon goddess we can all communicate telepathically, if any of us get seperated we have an internal feeling as to where that person is.

    We are now on a mission to save all the gods of the realm as they have been at war with another who seeks to destroy it all and remake it the way the old God wants it to be.

    when we got to that druid (similar situation under the spoiler tag) the druid used a froghemoth egg to transfer the life over, our halfling bard became an elf by the end of the spell.

    I've currently got a dwarf mini I'm trying to paint but haven't been happy with what I've done so far, his backpack and bed roll are the only parts I'm really happy with but the rest is just ugly and poo. I'll have to strip it and start again :(

    That dagger sounds really fun. I may have to borrow that idea for our small campaign, my character has been getting around telling anyone who will listen they have a special "Big Pebble" that is all mysterious and wonderful, but does absolutely nothing. Until last session when the Dwarven god blessed it and now it's an enchanted pebble that takes the powers of whatever I touch it to and can transfer them into another item. The more crazy creative ideas we bring to our DM the more he works with them to make happen in game and that sounds really fun, it could go so many ways!

    That sounds absolutely amazing, the smaller campaign I'm part of our DM for that one has your passion for the world / story he has been creating. I'll try to give a brief run down, our party was sent off to take out a necromancer only once the killing blow landed the all mighty necromancer was a child playing with his father's books. In his dying breath we were all cursed.

    Naturally this upset us all to no end that we just murder hoboed a child and went to take it up with the guy that set us on that path. Just as we were about to raise our weapons at him our souls were torn from our body and we were shot across the land. The curse the child put on us was the reason for this. We ended up speaking to a disciple of the Moon goddess who explained what may have happened, we pledged to help if they could restore us (at different times we would be torn out and disappear like a fart in the wind) it was shortly after this I spoke to our DM (we have known each other for 20 some years so he was asking how he was doing) about my character and not enjoying playing her, he then told me about an idea he had that when one of the party falls the new character is drawn to the others by something unknown and will be Ta'veren like they all are. So that's when we cooked up my characters death and introduction of the new one.

    Since then I've been throwing different ideas out and he works them into the game. We came up with an idea to help the others boost their characters low stats temporarily if they need it and so far it's been way more fun for all involved.

    Hey folks, I haven't posted in a hell of a long time and thought why not get this going again.

    So when I last posted I think my Paladin had just been basically killed off and I wrote up a druid. Well this one has been amazingly fun to role play, being that he has lived most of his life in solitude he has no social skills and tends to do things that can be a little off at times. Our merry band of misfits had cleared a small towns problem warerats who turned out to be a family of Gnomes who lived there, while trying to console the final member of the family Rolen (my druid) felt the best way to give emotional support would be to congratulate the young Gnome on becoming the head of the family. This actually broke the whole table for about a minute, the DM sat in silence for a moment, laughed, tried to role play the distraught girl but failed epically.

    We have also got another campaign going with a few of the same guys as the bigger campaign, this one is mostly homebrew. The first character I made I really wasn't happy with so spoke to the DM and we worked out how to kill her off and introduce the new character I made, completely homebrew this one and it's again been far more fun. He is a Dwaf Shaman whose ancestors speak to him constantly, sometimes good and sometimes not so much.

    So what has been happening in your RPGs? anything big, fun or just want to chat about? painted anything cool? got new dice? anything at all.

    I haven't made a post about mini painting in a damn long time ... the first mini I did I ended up stripping the paint and re doing it about 3 times before I was happy with it.

    Your mini looks really great, just keep doing that and trying different things. If it doesn't work, paint stripper! and the mistake is gone, one thing I do recommend getting is a wet pallet it will save so much paint. There is countless hours on YouTube on how to paint, I made my way through a lot of them before finding the guy I liked listening to. He is a bit odd and I think that's why I liked his videos best, while very informative he doesn't take things to seriously and jokes / acts a bit of a goose.

    Have you all started the new campaign yet?
