Beautiful Things Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone!

I have decided to dedicate my Sunday blog posts to beautiful things. We need more precious and wonderful in our lives, that is what this is going to be. Mostly things will be RPG related, because that is my love, but since I can never stay on topic I am likely to post some random things too.

I hope you are having a fantastic Sunday. I hope that people haven't dragged you down this week and if they did I hope you are bouncing back. I hope you have something lovely in your life and if you don't I hope this will help you :).

First of all, it is Sunday, you need a beautiful song. So, please enjoy this while reading my blog post :)



Have you heard of Rebecca Guay?


She is the illustrator of one of my favoruite rpg gaming supplements of all time - Revelations of the Dark Mother. This supplement was for Vampire the Masquerade and followed the life of Lilith - an epic vampiric mother goddess. Rebecca illustrated the entire thing and I fell in love with her work. I love the way she illustrates the female body and the lines she draws are amazing. If you have never heard of her or seen her work, make your Sunday better and click on the link above.

Now, you need some beautiful words. I love goblins! They are adorable and terrifying and ever since my mom read me the Hobbit when I was a kid, I have loved goblins. I don't know what it says about a kid who is cheering for the goblins and not the dwarves, but I found a Goblin Song for you. It is written for Pathfinder, but a person named Russell Jones. I don't know who you are Russell, but your Goblin Song is epic!

Goblins flee and goblins run, 
Hide in trees from wicked sun.
Longshanks chase with nasty dogs,
chase the goblins into bogs.
Boggy ground and boggy air,
But the goblins do not care.
Hunters chase the goblins round,
Never seeing pits in ground!
Trappers now the trapped they be,
While the goblins dance with glee!
Heads get smashed and longshanks dead,
And goblin bellies soon get fed!




Finally, look at this! My pledge finally got filled from a Kickstarter I backed and it was totally worth the wait!!! Fire & Bone makes castings of animal skulls (and dino bones O_O) and them makes them into tiny, adorable, wearable art. This is my bronze great horned owl. I am so happy with it. They have a webshop now so if you are jelly of my necklace you should check them out!

In my pjs, taking pics on a Sunday morning :P Super classy!

Have a great Sunday everyone :D. If you are feeling creative post some Goblin songs in the comments :D

Beholder Pattern

Here is the patterns for Paul, the Albino Beholder. You can of course, make him a normal ruddy beholder colour if you want (it is your amigurumi :D), but I simp[ly thought the world didn’t have enough happy-go-lucky cute things ;). Also, if you find the 10 eye-stalks too much you can also put less on. (I won’t even get into an intense nerd-debate with you about hoe a beholder actually does need all 10 eyestalks in order to be awesomely magical.)

Beholder

Materials= I colour of yarn, 1 safety eye, 10 black beads (see below), yarn needle, thread for sewing a mouth

Hook = ((2.5mm)) I am not putting a 'strict' hook size here, because you can basically do this pattern with any size hook & any size yarn. The larger the yarn/hook, the larger your beholder will be. However! This is very important make sure to guage your thread around the black beads that you buy for the eye stalks. My pattern calls for a CH6 around the eye beads and you should check this before you start. If y…

Gametail: The Swords & Wizardry

I need a drink, but not any type of drink I need a cocktail! But not any kind of cocktail, I need a cocktail based off an awesome game - a gametail :D.

Earlier this week +Stacy Dellorfano posted the cover of the new Swords & Wizardry, which should be Kickstarting soon. I am super excited, because I wrote an adventure for it! And if I do say so myself, it is metal as f*!#. Stacy asked me to make an adventure bridging a story game and an OSR game. I might cover that in another blog post, but let's get on to drinking!

Take a look and the /amazing/ new cover for S&W by Kaos Nest. I used it as the inspiration for the cocktail.


Now look at this beauty. Black and pink, the perfect combination for my gametail - the Swords & Wizardy!
