Things Printed  - 
 
A kraken, printed at 25 microns on a Form 1+ using MadeSolid black resin, taking about 26 hours.

This is probably about as tall as a Form 1+ can print, which was part of the reason I tried it. I used the "cure with UV light while underwater" technique, but messed it up a bit (white patches on tentacles).

The model is from Thingverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:539669), but I hollowed it out a bit before printing to save resin (the body still took ~180ml, so not cheap). I probably should have made more tentacle tips.

It came out awesome! Don't forget the tentacles. I linked them on the same page :-D

Kicksnarker Approved  - 
 
Anti-snark on this one (well, except for the boob window mini). While I don't really care about yet another D&D module, the way this one is being built deserves some attention. Breaking away from the status quo on how RPG stuff is presented electronically makes for a worthy experiment. (Also, the structure of their reward levels is great.)
Burning Yeti Studios, LLC is raising funds for The Lost Dungeons of Xon: An Innovative RPG Adventure on Kickstarter! The first episode of an epic story presented through an interactive PDF that offers features beyond traditional RPG modules.

I like the idea of stat blocks that pop-up when clicking on the character name, that was a good idea.

Just the secret overlord's first step to printing DNA.
3-D printing started with a wrench. Today, scientists are making molecules.

We can already print DNA essentially. http://www.nature.com/nrd/journal/v5/n2/abs/nrd1960.html

Wordman's tips on fatherhood, rule #56: when an entertainer, clown or waiter offers to make a balloon animal for your child, it is often far less drama just to punch them in the face and walk away.

If you are discombobulated in San Diego, my sister is now in the organization business. Give her a ring.

I'm #badatfandom because zero percent of me is invested in whether other people like what I like.

I would like to add Ptolus to Numenera! I think it would be a great addition to the world. And alot of fun to adventure in, too.
What does everyone think?
Would anyone be willing to submit conversion's for NPC's, monsters, etc?
I would love this to turn into one GIANT community conversion!

Reading #designersanddragons  has been harder on my wallet than I expected. One of the things I semi-drunk ordered on Amazon was a box of the Everway Companion Collector Cards. This box wound up containing three full sets of these cards, plus extras. I only need oneof them. If you want one of these full sets, tell me and I'll send one one to you.

This hack of Dungeon World into the setting of #Earthdawn  has progressed from the draft I posted a while back into a form that is as complete as I ever intend to make it. The details have been changed a bit since that draft, and I've added a number of new sections, but the basic approach remains the same.

Feedback welcome. Tinkering and posting the results even more welcome. #FourthWorld
Since its creation in 1993, the fantasy world of Earthdawn pushed my buttons. Now, the recent kickstarter to fund the game's fourth edition has rekindled my enthusiasm for the game. Yet, as eagerly as I backed the kickstarter and long to play in that world again, my interest in going back to ...

Man. A number of pdf readers really don't like the vectorized logo. Skim and most linux readers take a long time to render that first page.

I keep getting caught up on the last use of "had", which gives the whole thing an even weirder, existential vibe, and implies a disturbing back story.

I missed #RPGCoverArtAppreciationDay and my first choices were posted by others. But here are two that always struck me in ways I've never been able to articulate.

This, I guess, is the evolution of the Friends line? (And why is there always a bakery and a salon? Love to see the business data for that decision.)

The Friends line has always been very clearly targeted at parents of girls, as they do more of the buying than the girls themselves. (Whereas most of the criticism came from actual users of LEGO.) There is a certain amount of the whole thing being about LEGO convincing parents that bricks were not just a "boy" toy, even though both LEGO and girls already knew that, that I find fascinating.
