Sometimes I Do Things!

When did I draw that last post–Tempus Fugit! You probably think I’ve been sitting here twiddling my thumbs. Well that’s just not fair. Sometimes I make things that are NOT specifically for this blog, which exist nonetheless!

STALWART DWARF

This is a STICKER design I have drawn for Paul Hughes of Blog of Holding, to help promote his awesome Kickstarter Project! That is, to REWARD people who contribute to the project–surely you want a sticker this cool, and other, ALSO COOL stickers drawn by other cool artists! The stickers depict the 5 iconic heroes from the old school Dungeon Master’s Guide. Donate $22+ and you can get these stickers in addition whatever other swag you have earned in your tier!

What’s better than a homebrew campaign world? A homebrew Belgian-style BREW! This is a design for a beer label that I made for Nate of Buy the Farm…Share. A delightful project, and I am pleased with the results! My brain defaults to the fighting-type monks when it comes to D&D, as I played a pretty sweet Githzerai Monk for a while. Check out his blog to look at pretty pictures of the beer, and to read its appealing description! Also you should look at the rest of the blog, but you’ll probably get pretty hungry, as I do when I see and read about delicious foodstuffs.

I’ve been up to some other things in various stages of completion, but this is what I offer tonight. Maybe I’ll put up another scary monster.

Dwarf Paladin

Part one of a two-part request from ranthoron! I plan on adding part two of the request (a dragonborn cleric!) to this drawing and putting the ladies in situ once I am satified with the cleric! See this as a sort of peace offering for my slow progress–two weekends in a row I have been separated from my beloved art tablet!

Ten Days in Australia???

Nope, not going to Australia. Been there, done that; hugged a koala, bought a hat. They smelled like cough drops and leather, respectively. Other random things I got out of that trip: Snorkeling and body-surfing aren’t much fun, cattle ranches are HUGE, “I’m Like a Bird” was really popular in middle school, Australians think US accents and Irish accents are similar, there’s a big banana there, customs will not arrest you for the souvenir dead butterfly you bought, kangaroos are less cool when they just lie on the ground and have food shoved in their mouths, and the US needs to get on the ball re: chicken-flavored and ketchup-flavored potato chips. Really a great trip!

Anyway.

Ten Days in Africa is a fun little strategy game I have played quite a lot of, especially in the last month. Really straightforward, really quick, and pretty satisfying as a straightforward quick little game goes! Basics:

-There’s a 5 color map of Africa displaying all nations.
-There is a deck of cards. Every nation has a card (or, in the case of some larger countries, a couple of cards), and there are also car cards (these link countries with one country between them) and color-coded planes (can link any 2 countries of the same color, however far apart)
-You have 10 slots or “days” to fill.
-At the start of the game you are dealt a random hand from the deck
-You spend the game trying to make an unbroken 10 day chain one turn at a time, switching out cards from the deck and the discard piles.
-First person to sort out their 10 day trip wins! (no ties, ever!)

Blah blah blah, long story short, and bringing this whole post together, I present you with:

On the off-chance that this is only funny if you’ve actually, you know, played the game, you can check it out online! (hit “back” after the site redirects you to the Welcome page)
