And you can quote me on that!

I found a website that will turn the memorable thing us ordinary people say into official looking quotes. I'm going to have a lot of fun with this!

If girls were allowed to play D&D...

I have a boyfriend who has a 14 yo son so i guess this was bound to happen eventually, even though we all know it is a waste because girls are seriously not allowed to play. Something about being distractions!

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Ranger/Bard (3rd/3rd Level)

Ability Scores:
Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment when it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Primary Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

Secondary Class:
Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma score allows a bard to cast high-level spells.

Painted Raven Prints

I have finally been finding the time and energy to work a little more on my series of small abstracted flora and fauna prints. These are linoleum blocks target="_blank"(this is a link to a very thorough Instructables on printmaking)- hand cut and pressed, then hand painted with watercolor paints. I get to play with color and give my prints a totally different feel- brighter, lighter, or even moodier. Best part is it is totally fun for me!
