According to Tumblr’s email servers, this blog (or whatever it is) has been… erm… existing… for three years!
It isn’t really an achievement, so to speak, but it’s just a thing.
I’ve yet again failed to make a monster this week, and it’s really a shame — I haven’t had content in a while.
Oh well, I guess it’s time for another tide-over and a real-life update! So, the tide-over is: I’m doing a Grimtooth’s Traps*-style thing on boring lined paper, which I might convert to .docx format and upload. And also, I was thinking of posting a D&D adventure that I’ve already used* every week or so (I make all of mine myself — no adventures-in-a-can here), but we all know how that’ll turn out…
The updates for out-of-D&D things:
I decided to learn how to touch-type, and while it’s still currently only a mangled pose somewhat resembling traditional form, it will probably get better.
I went to a friend’s house on Friday, then promptly bought Awesomenauts on Saturday as a result.
It’s a MOBA presented in side-on platformer format, with rounds that fit into the time frame of making two pots of Kraft Dinner in sequence, which I love even without access to the online components (I’m not allowed, and I got it on XBLA* and don’t have that stupid thing involving paying for internet again.).
well, bother - I’ve noticed that all of my text posts (ie all posts that are actually mine) start like this.
grimtooth’s traps - A 1980’s thing. It’s only adequately described by reading it.
D&D already used - I’m running a campaign with my parents. They are: My dad - Frellesh, a LVL 3 dragonborn cleric, My mom - Llapingachos*, a LVL 3 elven ranger, and The DM (me) - Oalur, a LVL 3 dwarven paladin of Kord.
got on XBLA - It won’t run on my poop-quality laptop.
llapingachos - A potato and cheese fritter. Don’t ask.
It seems that I’ve already missed my deadline for about a week on the new monster, so instead I’ll publish some stuff I made:
4E MM1 By Origin
I’m currently occasionally working on MM3 by origin.
Also, MM1 by origin is organized terribly, I know. But this was an excuse not to do work, not an excuse to do so!
On a different note, I got Dungeon Keeper for free on http://www.gog.com yesterday and am enjoying it a lot!
(It’s still free until later today — get an account and buy it, with haste!)
Zurlock (it’s hard to make names)
A small, horrid creature, made from a corrupt soul.
Zurlocks live in the Shadowfell, or around where fell taints have widened rifts.
Zurlocks use “blade-weave” as often as possible, ganging up on a single target.
No really, names are hard. You try it.
You know about that thing where I post nothing at all involving real content, and may never live up to the name of “meh”?
This will change it all.
Over the past month or so, I recovered my parchment-like first-printing 4E D&D books and implored my parents to play it, with myself as the DM. Naturally, with my +9 to Diplomacy, I succeeded, and now have an actual hobby that may lead to me having a real life.
The manner in which this will change anything, you ask? A simple application, Monster Maker. (Hopefully) every week, I will post a new heroic-level monster for usage in a D&D campaign, and, naturally, will take requests.
Maybe it’ll even increase popularity, I dunno.
A teaser/first monster: (a minion or solo companion might be made)
I can’t explain why i can’t show it right here - it just doesn’t work.
An image file will have to do:
Tallares live underground or in dimly lit overground structures wherever sufficient humanoid prey congregate.
Tallares lie low, perfectly still, and lie dormant in wait of prey — when it appears, the tallare shifts out, uses proboscis on the prey, devours it, then scurries off to digest.
Tallares have a string-like vein connecting them to any plane perpendicular to magnetic north, which all their food travels through. The source or target of the vein is unknown, as it shrivels and detaches when severed or touched firmly — however, it is assumed that it leads to a “mother” of sorts. A tallare can only live for 1d4 minutes after the “lifeline” ‘s removal (i.e., 10 x 1d4 rounds.)
One time I was playing The Sims. My kid had a soccer game, and while the teams were huddled up, I changed to buy mode and put washing machines around the opposing team, enclosing them within their detergent scented prison. Thanks to my ingenious strategy, my child’s team was able to take the ball from the opposite goalie and score repeatedly. By the time the clock ran out, we were up 46-0, and the opposing team was sobbing in puddles of their own piss. I am the best soccer mom.
why did the blond fail her calculus test
she had a biology test on the same day and being that she is a bio major she felt it would be to her interest to put more emphasis on the bio test because she is only taking calc as an advanced elective credit which would not effect her major gpa
Nothing else to say, really. And a happy new year?
So I was watching one of those elephant documentaries and some guy walked over to the elephants and the elephants all crowded round to look at him and stroke him with their trunks.
And it reminded me how when there’s a cat in the garden my entire family will go out and cuddle it.
Elephants think humans are cute.
Now we know what elephants blog about.
If an elephant stroked you with its trunk, you would get horrible bruises and abrasions from the rough skin. So, correction: Elephants want to mutilate humans.
