Tooth & Claw

 Was at my FLGS last night scoring my copy of the 5E DMG!  Woo Hoo!
And spotted (and of course bought) this comic!
Here's the blurb for it:
"The highly anticipated fantasy epic can best be described as Conan meets Kamandi with a Game of Thrones-style storytelling experience. In TOOTH & CLAW, a secret conclave of wizards brings a legendary champion forward through time from the forgotten past to save the world—with disastrous consequences. Featuring swords, sorcery, beast-wizards, gods, sprawling animal empires, golems of radioactive decay, crystalline badlands, con women, ancient armories, young love, mystery, blood and death and treachery and destiny… TOOTH & CLAW is the sprawling, world-building fantasy series readers have been waiting for."
I've read through it and it is pretty cool.  I love anthropomorphic critters and this is all about that, with a cool fantasy vibe thrown in!
Good Stuff!

Here come the Orcs!

I've had this army of orcs sitting around on my shelf unpainted for several years now, recently my buddy Boomer painted them up for me. I'm really excited to have these painted up and ready for use against my players! Woo Hoo!!
There are 25 of them, I mean you can never have enough orcs to unleash on your players right?  : )

Pathfinder Saturday!

 I wrapped up my latest course in graduate school this week (still many more to go, sigh) and to celebrate, my buddy Tod invited me to play with a group of his that plays Pathfinder on occasion. When he sent me the address I was surprised to realize the group was playing just a couple of streets over from where I live, surprising because I live in a large metropolitan area and Tod lives almost an hour from my house.  Bonus for me!  I had rolled up a character beforehand per his instructions and opted to do something different from what I usually play, I made up a third level Sorcerer with the Efreeti bloodline. 
There were seven players including myself with Tod GMing.  Wow, big group.  The set up was excellent, the host, Sean, had a large bonus room upstairs, with two big screen TV's, plenty of space, dice and munchies!! We were in the thick of it in the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path.
I snapped one quick picture
We played from 3:00 in the afternoon to nearly midnight!  Wow, reminds me of the marathon sessions we had back when I was in high school and a freshman in college. Good Times!
With that many players, there was a good bit of side chatter and overall silliness, but I enjoyed it. The guys were great and very welcoming and it sure beat spending all day writing a paper.
Anyways, we eventually killed off the main baddie of the dungeon we were in, or at least I hope that was the main baddie, yikes she was tough.  We left off the adventure resting on the beach, dividing up our loot and dining upon giant crab meat!  -Good Times!!
