    I have about 5+ models I've printed that I am currently painting. Just slowly working through the insane library of STL files I have, trying different things each time as well.

    Then I am also planning on doing some dice and dice box resin casting very soon. I just need to set things up for that because I always end up making a mess no matter how careful I am .. damn pigments get everywhere.

    It's been a minute since I've posted on here.. anyway I'm Melbourne Australia, currently mid lockdown number 4, we spent most of last year in lockdown with a 5km radius we could travel. This absolutely ruined my mental health, I was trying to study to further my nursing degree but had to put it all on hold as things became far too difficult.

    Skip forward to this most recent lockdown, we were told it would be 7 days, well things went to shit as they seem to do and it was extended for a further 7 days. This brought back all the anxiety of last year and "two more weeks" that went on for months. I stepped up this time and spoke to my GP, I've been started on antidepressants, knowing how they work and the adverse effects because of work is one thing but experiencing them is a whole other world of crap.

    I'm currently trying again with my degree but currently have no motivation for it at all. Unfortunately it's the end of the damn semester I just hope I've done enough for that part and will be in a better place next semester.

    It's been a minute since I posted on here, I live in Australia, Melbourne. We have been in such a harsh lockdown and it's started to mess with me, yesterday we had 0 cases, 0 deaths I almost cried with happiness. Then the press conference said things would be opening up again from midnight tonight.

    This morning I was expecting to see a number or two but was met with 0, 0 again. Absolutely amazing two days. I'm feeling top of the world at the moment and it's fantastic.

    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 :(

    The channel I found is called miniac I find his voice easy to listen to and the passion for painting is definitely there. I've not been painting all that long so mine have big way to improve still.

    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!
