Discount Store Treasures  - 
 
At the local Five Below today (that's an "everything is $5 or less store" for you overseas types) found some Marvel 'Handful of Heroes' guys marked down to $3 a pack.  These retailed at $7 or so a pack, I picked some up for my son last year.

Each pack has eight figures, which stand 32-35mm tall.  Too tall to be 28mm dudes, BUT they make excellent ogres, rock trolls, and the like.  The series I picked up was Hulk-themed apparently, which is perfect for my purposes...9 out of my 16 little guys will make good ogre-types.

It breaks my heart that this "Doctor Doom wielding Mjolnir" figure is so damn tall.  He'd be a great paladin.

Also grabbed a Skylanders puzzle eraser ($3) which will make a great stone golem.  It's amazing what you can find when you look around a store with your "cheap gamer" brain installed.

Mine has crazy mold lines, as might be expected...not looking forward to dealing with those.

I'm this close to ordering Ramshackle's Nuclear Renaissance for some awesome post-apoc crazy action.  Has anybody played some games of NR?  Have an impression to share?

Picked it up awhile ago, and grabbed the update, neat little system. Works well and plays quickly enough to have a few games

SAILORS ON THE STARLESS SEA for DCC RPG

Dare you test your sinew and steel against the Lords of Chaos?

Join us at CardBoard for an introduction to the Dungeon Crawl Classics rpg as Erik runs Sailors on the Starless Sea

Pregenerated characters provided; can take up to eight players (you read that right).   Show up ready to get your sword and sorcery on!

The adventure (click the link for blurb and reviews!) is a "funnel", which means it's all about poor zero-level villagers in over their heads.  Who will survive the crucible and come out the other end a proper adventurer?  Who will put another tombstone on the shop wall?

Infusing some vodka (Svedka in this case) with candies for the holiday season.  

We've never done this before, so it's all a grand experiment.  Some peppermints, 'Dark Side' Skittles (lime, blood orange, pomegranate, 'dark berry' purple, and 'forbidden fruit' blue).  Had enough vodka left to do a jar using some random sour apple Laffy Taffy we had laying around.

Anybody have a vodka infusion to recommend?  I'm thinking next time, fresh fruit...and maybe one with habaneros...

I've heard of infusing vodka with candy, but I never tried it myself, as I don't really drink. I'd be interested in the result, though.

I have done some experiments a long time ago with my brother, what sort of spirits to mix with what sort of fruits. We started with rum and coconuts, because thematically, they sort of belong together. It went horribly wrong. The alcohol drained all the oil out of the coconut bits and it gathered at the top of the container and looked rather unpleasant. The coconut did not, however, replace the oil with rum, so we ended up with a bottle of oily rum and dried out coconut bits.

A very good mixture though are figs and vodka. I have made that for a birthday party a few times, 3-4 weeks in advance. People loved it. I used canned figs, the syrup they came in included, which made for a sweet liqueur. The figs themselves apparently had quite a kick to them, as well.

Generally, most sorts of berries work quite well. Cherries, I think, are especially good.

Another thing is putting fresh herbs into the vodka. Peppermint is supposed to be quite good, add a bit of lemon grass and some sugar, and you get a fresh peppermint liqueur.
