This is the configuration that would blow away anyone who is versed in solving rubiks cubes. It looks like its an impossible move but it is an illusion caused by so many of the sides being similar. Evil I know
as long as its not doing like in that web series called LARP where the paladin has to tank the boss for like 30 minutes jus because the guy with the rubik cube took that much time to do one single side.
druid:"Do you need healing ?"
knight:"i still have half of my health, so im fine."
DM:"the boss, crits, max damage which does 20 damage !"
Ever since the Dr. Who "Key to Time" episodes, I've been using puzzle props with my players. My good ole standby is a Soma cube that was a gift from my grandparents about 35 years ago. Still have it. Keep up the good work!

If you gave me a rubics cube puzzle to solve, my party would all die before I could solve it.... Lol
I think the idea of having the cube is great though....
What if you had different levels of success.... Ie. Solve the red side, and you get a fire damage buff, solve the blue side, you get a cold damage reduction, solve any 2 sides and you get something? Or really make it mysterious, solve one side, except for the 4 middle/side cubes, and you get something. Or on one side have a row of 3 red, a row of 3 blue, and a row of 3 green... You could obviously sprinkle clues throughout your campaign indicating some hard to figure out combos.
I think the idea of having it solved untraditional (like a certain pattern on one side) is a great twist. It allows players to actually solve the thing without having to solve the thing. And would throw a curve ball, because they originally would think they know what they need to do, when in reality, solving it traditionally isn't even the goal.
erho: I will once again rise above Lurker status if I ever get back to painting, Real life work transitions... Adulting

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect
Jun 8, 2020 14:28:59 GMT
sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!
Sept 23, 2020 2:50:39 GMT
sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
Sept 23, 2020 2:51:57 GMT
sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!

margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
