GOBLIN WEEK IS OPON US
Today's offering: A beauteous Goblin demoiselle and assorted Giblets.


It always bothered me that the Greenskins in WFRP were specifically precluded from being female; like, all the Greenskins were supposedly neither male nor female - being something akin to a fungus - but they all exhibited masculine traits.
But if there were goblin ladies in Warhammer, they'd prolly look like this.

Also: I feel I should note that that hip strap is only holding up the mouse skull. Anything else would be...

* sunglasses

...un-a-merkin.
flees incoming rotten vegetables *

Protip: when using a computer app as a makeshift waffle timer, it helps to make certain your speakers are turned on.

Waffle index: crispy.

Merry Christmas, internets!

Geography  - 
 
On building the biggest terrarium
How big does a landmass have to be to make a self-supporting ecology that humans (or humanoids, anyway) can live in?

My pitch: Orwi is a ruined world, but there's one habitable part of it left: The Bowl, an artificial enclave bounded by enormous sorcerous walls that filter the water and atmosphere and keep out the Lovecraftian horrors on the outside. Sunlight comes in the top, and the Bowl itself is sunk pretty deeply into the rock.

My initial design tried for something 500-1000 miles across; roughly the size of the Amazon basin, with a sizable chunk of that being tropical rainforest and another chunk being a fairly brackish inland sea. Would this be big enough to hold a viable ecosystem?  Should it be bigger?
What sort of hazards would you foresee in a closed ecology, sorcerously managed or otherwise?

Really interesting, been thinking of bowlshaped worlds a lot, but in other contexts.

“We must not look at goblin men,
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?”

A crafty goblin vendor, for #GOBLINWEEK . Seducing you with the power of butts fruit.

"_...In fact this is what we call the "Polar Vortex." Usually this feature sits on the North Pole, spins around the globe and traps such cold in Northern Canada and Russia. However, on Monday it is poised to move south into the United States..."_

Welp, that's it. WE BROKE THE NORTH POLE, GUYS.

Some sort of crazy doodler person.
Introduction
How you might know me:

- If you grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area (Mostly Oakland and Berkeley) any time in the last 40 years or so.
- If you went to the Academy of Art College in San Francisco between 1996 and 2001
- if you've been (at times) active in the SCA, Paganism, Heathenry, GLBT, Science-Fiction Fandom and other sundry geekish subcultures, or are a diehard Tabletop RPG player.
- Through the fine, fine work of Filament Games in Madison, WI. I work there as an illustrator/animator, making learning games. I also write (occasionally) and do voicework.
- Through the many awesome people I am friends with.
- Through World of Warcraft.
