I amn unashamed that I like Vince Vaughn. Dude amuses me. The Internship is such an ad for Google and as a media-savy techie who recognises and is always cynical of ads I have to say I still enjoyed the movie. Note: streamed on Netflix is the appropriate price.

Oh man, that was painful to watch. What a draft that guy had. All of the rebels, all of the answers.

Alright, let's paint. Today I'm going to be working on the blue-grey chest armour. Anyone painting tonight?

I don't know how useful this sort of distraction will be for someone who has trouble focusing. Maybe you can focus on the mini, focus on the chat, and then refocus on the mini as a way to make sure your distraction returns you to your area of interest.

Painting speed definitely improves with practice and technique. One of the tricks I used to paint faster was to paint in an assembly line.

However, it wasn't enough to paint all the left hands at the same time. I would try to find the most efficient brushstroke pattern for the left hand and refine it with each model.

Now I can cover surfaces with much less brushstrokes than most people. Whenever I see a video of someone constantly poking away with a tiny brush it drives me nuts.

What do you guys bring to DM? I am torn between using a laptop so that I have all the things, or just using my tablet for the game rules and notes, plus some paper for making new notes. I want to keep things slimmed down but being able to quickly type things into my existing notes, looking up name lists and whatnot seems very convenient.

What tools do you bring to the table?

I GM DW with the list of GM moves printed double-sided with the random treasure roll. I also use a sketchbook where I record my fronts, plan out monsters, write notes, doodle maps, and keep track of combatants. The players have a whiteboard that I sketch maps for them in dry erase marker and a PC connected to a television for campaign notes. We use the preprinted character sheets and basic move sheets. I printed sections of the PDF for easy referral, but I don't keep them in a binder because that defeats the purpose of having the section on equipment separate from the section on monsters. (Printed rulebook sections: monsters, equipment, hirelings.)
Lastly, I am going to start using post-it notes for conditions and debilities. Some of my players have had some issues remembering conditions inflicted on their characters, particularly between sessions. I am going to hand out pink post-it notes to attach to their character sheets that say, "broken hand" or whatever (had a cleric with Precept: Suffering who kept hurting himself).

Very good, very funny. Focus maybe? Put something where you will sit and focus the camera on that, then lock focus.

Might do a painting thing again tonight. Might even try it as a hangout using my tablet. Not sure how well that could possibly work but I'm going to try it.

and done. Not in the mood to paint so I just did the next bit and stopped. Painting for even 10-15 minutes is better than not painting at all. It's a babystep, but I'm one babystep closer to done.

that's one of the reasons I haven't painted many boardgame minis. That and I b uy boardgames to play something that doesn't require painting.

Gonna try to get on again tonight. We'll say 9:30-10pm EST.

Dropped off my daughter's carpet after she was sick. They did a great job even though the carpet was heavily textured with areas of different lengths of yarn or whatever.
