The Litko Figure Stands only work for 25 mm bases (circle or square are separate items) so they do have some limits. But I just used them in a recent encounter in my 5E campaign and they work great for humanoids, especially if you want something to fly right overhead of a PC. The Chessex dice containers are better for larger creatures/monsters like the Giant Spiders. I like having the flexibility of using both.
Session 12: What Lurks Beneath the Golden Tankard has been posted to my 5E campaign journal. This my homebrew world. Generic fantasy world heavily influenced by sword and sorcery, especially Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories. This adventure was an adaptation of Nord Games “Creaking in the Dark” adventure module. I’m a stickler for new players starting at 1st level in my campaign. I had three 1st-level characters and two 4th-level characters. Worked out just fine.
New blog post of my 5E campaign journal: Lord Sketch of the Sewers of Cyr. Over the last year and a half of running my campaign I’ve mostly moved to using 2D map tiles/battlemaps with 3D scatter instead of full-on 3D terrain. I know I’ll come back to more 3D later, but the 2D map tiles have worked great and you really can enhance the feel of it with some 3D scatter (like tables, chairs, bookshelves, etc.). What do you prefer to use?
cowboyleland when I first saw your Dark (Age) Knight as part of the forum hoard in Jan 2017, I knew I had to find a way of incorporating him in my campaign. Thankfully, I already had a deposed constable in the main home base of my players: the trade-city of Cyr. So, I concocted a story of him turning to vigilantism after going into hiding. My players were impressed when I put your paper mini on the table! At the end of the adventure the Dark (Age) Knight gave the players a wand of improved minor illusion that casts a bat symbol on the nighttime sky in order to call for his assistance
New blog post of my campaign journal. Session 14: The Vault of Pallon the Pirate based on a one-shot/side adventure by Jon Sawatsky in Prepared! published by Kobold Press. The tiles/terrain used were exclusively Inked Adventures. My style of DMing is definitely episodic, but I have a linking thread through most of my sessions.
Always entertaining. Since these adventures are nine months old, have you been having more adventures this year to keep the posts flowing?
I’m just trying to get caught up. I didn’t start the blog until the end of last summer. We play in my campaign about once a month. I have a good group of players with three of us regularly DMing. We have four active campaigns going on now! Five more sessions will get me caught up on the blog, but we’ll probably play once or twice in my campaign before I get there. I’m a university professor and don’t teach during the summers, so now is my chance to get caught up .
New blog post is up. This session was the second installment of our Halloween adventure from last year. Features an underground tomb and lots of undead. Paper minis by distrigillator, Paper Forge, old squirmydad, and Brave Adventures.
New post is up. This adventure was based on The Lands of Lunacy by Fail Squad Games. The adventurers were transported to a different dimension—Into the Chaos Void and had to find there way out. The Lands of Lunacy Setting Guide provides a nice way to handle the situation where only a fraction of your players can show up and the missing players will mess up the continuity of the campaign. Don’t cancel! Run The Lands of Lunacy instead. I ran a lot of this Theater of the Mind except the first and last big battles.
squirmydad: My supervisor's state of mind; she's been climbing the walls begging to put us back in the game. All of Maintenance and Administration are still out, but my supervisor wants to invent projects to bring us back in.

Vermin King: So, essentially, what was so essential today?
Apr 7, 2020 13:16:18 GMT -9
squirmydad: I've been declared "Essential" for today only. Off to work, paper-crafting tonight then.

Vermin King: Two months?!? I need to stop whining. Where's my Wambulance?

wyvern: Anecdotally, a number of people seem to have been ill with a protracted 'flu-like illness since last winter (NOT Covid-19). I had 'flu for two months from mid December myself. Unhelpfully, my symptoms included cough + fever, identical to Covid-19.

Vermin King: Best of luck with that, Coyotepunc. Being sick since 03/17, I can somewhat relate to your condition, but I don't have the worry of my kid having problems on top of my own. All the best, sir

alloydog: @coyotepunc - even at 30+, they still yer babies! Not that they appreciate being called that!
Apr 7, 2020 1:14:36 GMT -9
alloydog: Of course, it doesn't help if the mucus is in the trachea.
Apr 7, 2020 1:13:33 GMT -9
alloydog: old squirmydad mentioned fennel tea. If that sort of thing is not for you, or is hard to get, I saw a WHO video where they said to drink plenty of warm/hot drinks, such as tea, coffee, even milk, because it helps shift mucus from the throat to the stomach.

Coyotepunc: So it's going to be a long night of taking his temp every hour... he's 19 but still my baby

Coyotepunc: I've been dealing with a variety of covid-19 symtpoms since January, except for the fever (12% of cases have no fever.) My kid woke up with almost all the symptoms including high fever today.

squirmydad: Bag is handy, if you find it loose use the seeds, but then you need something like an infuser or it's a mess.
Apr 6, 2020 7:24:51 GMT -9
shep: most likely bag...
Apr 6, 2020 6:32:37 GMT -9
ignatious: just out of curiosity squimrydad, for the tea seed, frond, or bulb?

Vermin King: My friend Mike brought a sword to his church last night, but since he was there recording his sermon for today, he thought it would be okay

marcpasquin: Every time I go out, my wife tells me to be safe and reminds that as this is not a zombie apocalypse, I am not allowed to bring a chainsword with me to the grocery store.
Apr 5, 2020 17:44:30 GMT -9
Vermin King: No, this is the first time I have heard of it
Apr 5, 2020 14:05:13 GMT -9
squirmydad: Have you tried fennel tea to ease some of your bronchial issues? I like it and it seems to help me.
Apr 5, 2020 12:14:56 GMT -9
Vermin King: But I should be good for at least another week before I will need to head out for restocking anything
Apr 5, 2020 10:42:35 GMT -9
Vermin King: I think the biggest problem is that I've been dealing with it since the 17th. I know that my immunity level is down from being sick this long, and now one of my medications also lowers immunity. And we've got this blasted other thing floating around
