There used to be scintillating conversation around here.

Sigh. I have been away too long.

What's to comment? It is a thing. It is cute, but contains no calls to action for the reader. Would a bunch of people going, "Heh, that's funny!" be "scintillating conversation"?

Besides, Jayne is far more orcish than Mal. Just sayin'. :p

Oh allright, fine. Point taken.

I was reminiscing about the threadhttp://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?12553-The-Orc-and-The-Pie which actually was a lot of fun, but was part of a larger conversation. I probably should just have resurrected that thread and posted it there.


Conversation starter: what am I going to do about my cursed dice? Last game they failed me on every single roll. I mean, the whole game--even the part when I levelled up my character and rolled a one on my new hit die. I mean, seriously--what is up with that?

Can I appease them? Uncurse them? Or do I just have to get new dice?

I've had this set since Piratecat gave them to me for my birthday all the way back when I lived in Boston. That's got to be like 20 years now. What I'm saying is, we have history together, and they weren't always toxic to me before.

Dylrath did some great things with this very d20.

Although--as I recall--that character was most famous for his egregious and comical fails.

Hmm.

Maybe it is time to get new dice.

So what's in fashion these days?

Wow. Where have I been? How did I miss the whole saga of Nutkinland's demise and reincarnations?
http://annex.wikia.com/wiki/Nutkinland


Did no one save the awesome orc & pie parody contest thread?

It was genius.

At least, in parts.

Um. Although of course, most of those parts could not be posted here, even if we could find them.

I'm so glad Doomdaisy reposted the Seuss version over on my earlier thread--that entry was worth preserving.

All the rest is lost to the digital landfill . . . pixels abandoned . . .lost the signal . . .

that works too. I just put this on a firefly based facebook page and then I blinked. When the eyes finished blinking I had 19 likes

edit:

make that 25 likes and a "You should punch your dm"

To be fair, even *you* couldn't think of anything to say about it. You told us you couldn't take credit and you changed the font. Is that the start of a scintillating conversation? :)

If you want to start a scintillating conversation, you need to ask a question, post an opinion, or raise an issue. Just like real life! What do *you* think of the image you posted?

Oh hey Morrus-nice to hear from you again after such a long break.

It really was just sort of a test feeler to see if anyone I know is still hanging around these parts--"oh there's Sialia. She used to post funny pictures. Wonder what she's up to these days/?". I recognize this is not great art---ever piece of it lifted from somewhere else--but I did participate in its creation to some extent. Mostly by advising the compositor with PhotoShop advice. Bandeeto wrote the words, so that part at least is "original," at least to the extent filks ever are.

Seriously, this was just meant in fun, as was the slightly mopey. snark about missing my old friends here.

Do I have any friends here anymore, I am wondering. Is it worth coming back?

I mean where else can I post the funny story about how I mistook my d20 for a malted ball this afternoon and almost swallowed it?

There are limited forums for this sort of thing on the interwebs.

So really -- the question I'm asking is, is there anyone out there? Hellooo?

Oh, and there are now 247 likes on tat facebook post.

Well, I like to game, and I like to doodle about gaming related stuff.

I had some pretty long art threads here back in the day, and there was a really nice gang of folks who used to check in on my thread and give me opinions and feedback and advice and stuff, and it was really helpful and encouraging. About a decade ago I injured my arm and had to give up drawing for a long while. Early this January I started drawing again and its been coming back slowly.

Very slowly.

In January, I managed to eke out a few still-lifes of eggs and apples and mugs and things like that. It was fun, but I felt like I couldn't come back here with those things because they weren't genre related.

So I started a Tumblr blog and threw the early exercises up there, and then I reposted most of my ENworld contributions there also just to have something to put up in between the new one-sketch-a-month still life exercises. Except the Baby Pictures of the Elder Gods--for some reason I never got around to reposting those. Maybe I will at some point.

The Tumblr blog is unsatisfying, because nobody comments. I'd really like to be able to come back here, if I could come up with anything worthy.

Anyway, Bandeeto (who also used to hang around here) had this idea for the Firefly filk and he wanted a sketch for it, but I couldn't deliver the concept as he envisioned it, so I just talked him through the technique. Since he doesn't post here much anymore, I offered to post it for him. Et voila. Here we are.

Where did you post the Firefly thing?

Sialia's Garden

Here's a sample of what my own stuff looks like these days.

It was a nice drawing of a cactus, but again, un-ENworldable as a still life of a cactus. So I went a little further.

you and Rich Berlew, artis of OOTS. he cut his hand on a glass golum, and lost that battle. He has mostly recovered

I myself have gone through a major medical trauma, so I understand recovery. "It takes time" Is my most hated phrase.

I seem to remember something about those baby elder gods. Did you post them on Cvrcus Maximvs too?

I posted the art piece on Facebook on a members only page called Firefly is awesome - Browncoats

My real name is David Johannes. My FB avi is a gold Arabic "N" on a black background. I use Scot DeWar because I enjoy Dewar's scotch.

I really do remember seeing the artwork you have done, I just can't remember where I saw them. Probably from the induced coma I was in.

My game likes include Pathfinder and 3.5. I am an Electrician by trad - an art and a science i it own way.

Thanks--keep me posted about the hit count--it's more than anything I've ever gotten on my other stuff and it amuses me--I'll pass it along to Bandeeto, who will be even more amused.

Tell you what-- seems like this thread isn't really the place for me to re-enter ENWorld with my own stuff. I'll try to come up with something new and resurrect one of my old art threads.

Maybe it will motivate me to come up with something more creative than roses.

(Lately, I've been drawing a lot of roses because I figured out how. Its fun working around the puzzle of making the layers overlap and concave and convex and fold, etc. But seriously, at the end of the puzzle, I've got a rose. Whooopee.)
EDIT: sticking my cactus picture over at the end of the Babypictures thread, because it fits better there.
