I Am A: True Neutral Elf Druid/Ranger (3rd/2nd Level)

Ability Scores:

True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Primary Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.

Secondary Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

Today I went to the library book sale. We're pretty short on funds so we almost didn't go, but we decided that at the very least it would be good to get out of the house. We also had books to return to the library, so all the more reason to go. The library book sale goes Sat-Sun, so it was already picked over by today. Still tons of books though! I ended up getting one book, I stopped by the science/biology table and there was an older hardcover illitrated animal biology book. I really like it for some reason so I picked it up. It was only $1.50 after the discount for half price day so not too bad.

We didn't play Pathfinder today because we've both been kind of out of sorts. I didn't write an update though from last weekend! We're almost all the way through the second book in the path now. :) Lots of adventuring was to be had, the his kingdom continues to grow, and he's collecting more allies. He had his first winter, and he spent most of that in his kingdom just growing it instead of trudging through the wilderness in the snow. We start next weekend at the beginning of spring and he's going to go and probably clear a nearby island of will-o-wisps. Also, he's been hearing rumors of trolls. n_n

This was a lot of enemies )
Here's a picture of him investigating the lonley barrow. Most of the characters on the board are enemies. They did fine though, and I was amused by controlling the horde of enemies.

Today me and Scottie continued the Pathfinder Kingmaker adventure path! I had a lot of fun roleplaying all of the new NPCs. :3 I've been looking forward to playing a couple of them. n_n There was a lot of role-playing tonight, and there was combat but it wasn't as much as some days. Scottie's kingdom is continuing to grow!

Yesterday me and Scottie also played a lot of Three Dragon Ante, but I was soooo tired I couldn't do it in character. Maybe next time?

Scottie's also thinking about running one of the other Pathfinder paths we have (we only have two, but that's a lot!) for me. It's Serpents Skull. I'm thinking of playing an oracle for it. There are mysteries that you can choose for the class like sorceress bloodlines, really they're more like archtypes though. There are two that I like, dark tapestry or heavens. I'm not sure if I want to RP twins or someone with multiple personalities. Since oracles have to have a curse associated with them, if I go with one character with two personalities we might make that a homebrew curse. I was drawn to the dark tapestry because I usually play good people (except when I'm running a villian of course), but I think it might be fun to play someone who's kind of a bastard. haha The dark tapestry mystery is very chthulu-esque. Of course, the other one that I like is heavens and that's obviously more of a good mystery. I thought it would be fun to pair the two somehow because they're so opposed.

Roller Derby Ghoulia
I haven't taken any pictures of my RM Ghoulia, and I wanted to do that before I changed her from her stock look. I'm probably going to wash out the hair and have it loose. :3

A couple more Scaris pics )

I don't have pictures from today's sculpting, but I did work on my male sculpt! Scottie helped me prepare the metal rods for the leg armatures because they were really thick and I couldn't just cut them with regular snips. For strength I needed to make clay cores instead of foil cores for the legs, so I got the general shape for the leg cores sculpted and threaded onto the metal rods, and they just came out of the oven. :3 It was rather exciting to see the beginning of legs!

Yesterday and today me and Scottie continued the Kingmaker Pathfinder path, starting in on the second book in the series. It was a lot of fun and we made a lot of progress! Scottie founded his capital, built his first castle, and explored more of the region. I had a lot of fun!
Sunday and Monday gaming )

I took some pictures of the kitty recently, I thought I should put a picture of him up! hehe He's a cutie. :3
Kitty! )
milleniumgypsy: (Rainbow of colour pencils)
Last night I continued resculpting the male face, and I'm really happy with how he's coming! I have a picture of him now. I was also starting the ears but I didn't get terribly far. I didn't have a chance to sculpt yet today but maybe I will in a little bit. If I get the ears on this weekend I'm probably going to prepare the body for attaching limbs, then bake it as is! It's a bit different for me because with the animals I would always bake the limbs first and then sculpt onto the body, but I think this makes more sense for the human figure. Not sure if I'm going to sculpt on male bits or not, kind of depends on how I decide to do clothes (sculpted or cloth).
Progress for yesterday! )

Today we got the Pathfinder Bestiary Box! It contains really nice printed pawns of 300 monsters out of bestiary 1, including about 30 stands. It will be really nice for gaming! :D
I decided to take a couple of pictures of Frankie looking at the supplies. :3
Frankie looking at Pathfinder supplies! )

For dinner tonight Scottie made us a really nice ham dinner! We found it at Costco, and it's really good. It's an apple wood smoked ham that with a red currant glaze. It was so nice and it was very affordable! I don't know what we'd do without Costco, especially up here in AK!
More diet foods! )
milleniumgypsy: (kitty- leaping kitty)
So this morning and yesterday I worked more on my sculpts! I don't have time to get pictures right now, but I'll post them tomorrow. Right now 3 of the 4 heads have been attached to the bodies! I have the neck muscles and collarbones sculpted on the male. I'm really excited!

In other news, today was our Pathfinder game day! We actually finished part one of the Kingmaker path. I forgot to take pictures of the table during the game itself, but it was pretty epic and very fun. I took a picture of the map so far though. It turned out my GM map wasn't exactly the same scale as Scottie's player map, but it works well enough. When Scottie finishes exploring a map, I give him a tile out of the stack that I have. Now this week I'm going to read up on Part 2 so we can do that next weekend!
The map! )

Scottie also made some wonderful food tonight! He made homeade tortillas, spicy hamburger, topped that with pecorino cheese, lettuce, and had sides of grape tomatoes and avacado slices. So delicious!
Awesome healthy foods )

Also, the kitty has decided the Wii fit balance board is his bed. I'm not sure why since it's certainly not soft. We do joke that he likes the smell of feet though since he'll curl up with our shoes or silly things like that, and I'm sure the balance board smells like feet? I dunno. lol But I got a picture of him on his "bed".
You sure that is a bed? )

So last week I didn't get a lot of sculpting done, there was just a lot going on and I didn't have time. I also felt pretty crummy this weekend which didn't really help.

This evening I finally got back to my sculpting though, which was good! On the last female head that I still needed to work on I decided to do some lip reshaping, did a lot of modification to the whole head shape, worked on the cheeks, worked on the jawline and chin, and a little bit of smoothing. I like how she's coming along! She's the one with no neck yet and the white eyes. She needs more work but it's getting too late to continue and she was getting to warm to work with.
Progress for today )

Scottie ([ profile] tanvan) made me new earrings! I'd said that I'd like some dice earrings (I be a geek) and Scottie said he would make me some. We bought dice from the game store a bit ago for this purpose, and Scottie found beads that look lovely with them! He drilled the dice into beads, put them together, made the jump rings to connect to the hooks, and I had a new pair of earrings! I think they're so pretty. :D Since we had a couple more dice and the last of those beads, he's going to make a couple pairs to sell. He's going to put them up on etsy. He's also most likely going to work on some more dice jewelry. If anyone is interested, just let me know! n_n'
My cutie's awesome new earrings for me )
Edit: Scottie posted a link to his etsy in the comments here, but I thought I should put it in my main post too. There was a mishap with the last dice so there isn't a second pair for sale, just the one. It's in our etsy shop!

On Sunday I me and Scottie did our weekly Pathfinder game! It was fun, and we discovered that we were further along in it than we thought! There's a map that the characters are chartered to explore, and the lower half of it didn't have a lot of events in it like the top did. I thought it was odd that there seemed to be so much filler exploration, but I was going with it. But since I'm getting to the end of the story stuff in the first book, I decided to pull the second so I could start reading it ahead of time. I was rather surprised to see the same map, but the second half of the map filled with encounters! Oops! I looked at the charter more closely and saw that the charter boundries are actually at the halfway point of the map. It doesn't hurt anything because Scottie hasn't explored that far yet anyway, but it's important for the upcoming session.
Gaming fun! )

I was going to give everyone their five questions tonight but it's gotten too late. I'll do that tomorrow though!
milleniumgypsy: (Girl with umbrella)
Tonight I continued sculpting the male head. I finished sculpting the second eye, worked on the brows, and tweaked the cheeks and mouth. I'm happy with how he's coming along! The first head in the picture is the second head that I sculpted, and while I kinda like it, I don't think it's what I want. I'm thinking I might save it for a different character and sculpt a different head entirely. I have a plan in mind for that earlier head, but I'm not quite sure yet.
I also tweaked the second female head (3rd head in picture). I'm actually pretty happy with her, but I needed to tweak her nose and mouth a bit. I'm probably going to tweak her further,but I think I addressed what I felt really needed to be fixed. :3
They're all ready for ears!

In this picture there is a tiny grey head, Scottie actually sculpted that today and last night! The head is baked, and the eyes are already painted. :D It's so small, and I'm super excited that he's getting into sculpting! He wants to make a DnD figure, and this little sculpt is a planning sculpt for his final one which will be even smaller!

Progress for today, plus a teaser pic of Scottie's sculpt! )

Here's our Sunday Pathfinder game! If you want to read the story of what's going on, Scottie is blogging it from the viewpoint of his character. It's really neat! His username is [ profile] tanvan. :3 The map is something that got out of the book, made it bigger in the gimp, split it up into something that we could print, then taped the pieces together into one large map. It's such an awesome thing to use for gaming!
Picture of our Sunday game, plus our gamer foods! )

I also got a picture of Chaos exploring the back of the couch. I thought it was cute!
Ferret! )
milleniumgypsy: (Heart bubbles animated)
So Scottie has a request on his userlookup here for me to write a bio for him. I've been meaning to write it but I kept forgetting to do it. Hope it's not to sappy, but here's what I wrote for him. I wonder if this also counts as sappy Valentines stuff? I just realised how close it is to Vday. lol

Scottie is the most amazing man in the world!

Scottie is a creator of things. He makes jewelry, leather journals, drawings, stories and more. He knits and crochets beautiful things. He always wants to learn to make new things. He always has amazing ideas and inspirations!

He loves music. He has a musical background and was a band geek. :3 He can play the saxaphone, and is learning to play the guitar and piano. He can read sheet music and is teaching me how to read it. He sings to me, and it is awesome.

He is very kind! He wants to help everyone. Even if it doesn't seem like a big thing to him to help our disabled neighbor bring her groceries up to her apartment, or to run to help someone push their car out of an icy patch, or to continually give blood at the Red Cross, it really is!

He loves to read and blazes through piles of books!

He's a giant geek, which I love! He loves open source things and prefers Linux over anything else. He programs things for fun.

He enjoys gaming of all kinds! He likes to play or run DnD, Pathfinder, and other adventures. He enjoys playing board games, card games, and video games!

He knows how to swing dance and is very good! :D He likes to run.

Also, he's totally hawt. ;D

In related news, he's now journaling our Pathfinder adventure at his journal! ([ profile] tanvan if you'd like to look). He's writing it from the perspective of his character. :3

So after my intial stress about my grandparents property, I decided that I shouldn't let it stop me from having a nice weekend. I still need to figure out what's going on, but there's only so much I can do from here. :P That night Scottie cheered me up with a lovely dinner, cuddles, and game of Worms. Comedic mayhem is a good way to cheer me up, he knows me well. :3

I worked on sculpting tonight, but I didn't really finish enough to warrant a picture yet. I worked on the 4th head, mostly working on head shape and lip sculpting.

Yesterday I decided to do something a little different! We were at the thrift store last week, and while there I went to check for Monster High dolls. I've never seen one yet and I'm not exactly expecting to, but I still want to check! Anyway, I found a Mulan doll and I've always thought she was really cute! I decided to get her even though she didn't actually match anyone else. lol I wanted to take pictures but was all :/ because she has the old style Barbie legs and arms with only shoulder movement. I'm spoiled by MH and BJDs and couldn't think of what to do with her. I decided I'd do a head transplant onto a jointed body. I couldn't find any jointed doll bodies at the thrift store with pale enough skin though!

Scottie pointed out though that I have a couple of Liv dolls that I bought on clearance for their wigs for my CAMs, and one of them had really nice jointing and pale enough skin. I decided to do a head transplant!

Liv dolls have huge heads but they're actually slightly shorter than Barbies, so Mulan's head actually matches the body way better than the Liv head. Of course, now I have a floating Liv head and a headless Barbie body (though the body will just go to a Barbie customisation that had a broken neck).

I soaked both dolls heads in boiling water to soften up the vinyl, then used a knitting needle to get the head over the graple in the neck. Scottie helped me with the Liv head because my hands got soo tired after doing the Mulan head.
Progress pics! )

She looks great though! She stands on her own and is so easy to pose! I love that she has double jointed knees. :D
Showing off how well she poses! )

She needs a better outfit, what she came dressed in was a Mary Poppins dress which didn't really fit what I want her to look like! Not sure what to do with the dress. lol Right now she's wearing a random Liv dress I have. I might want to reroot her in the future too because her hair is a bit rough feeling.

Today I continued playing the Pathfinder path with Scottie as the DM! We made some maps, I'll have to post about how we did that later. It's getting late though so I can't get into that right now. I'm really enjoying playing with Scottie again though! He says he likes how I characterise the NPCs. :D
For lunch Scottie made lovely deviled eggs with shrimp! Diet food is awesome. lol
Games and snacks! )

As a bonus, here's the kitty cuddling with Scottie on the couch. :D
Sleepy kitty! )
milleniumgypsy: (balloons)
I haven't posted recently, partly because I've been busy because Sunday was Scottie's birthday! (He's [ profile] tanvan btw! xD)

First things first we went to see Les Mis, he was really excited to see it! I enjoyed it way more than I thought I was going to (I kept hearing how depressing it was). It wasn't nearly as depressing as all that, lol. We haven't been to the movies in ages so it was extra special. n_n'

I've been planning on running a Pathfinder game for Scottie, so I started getting ready to play on Saturday. We had gotten a couple of paths from Paizo a couple years ago but never had time to play and now we're doing it! The first volume of the adventure is in the second picture. :3 It's kind of weird to me because I'm used to making up the whole thing, but having a premade adventure works way better when I'm working. Less to prepare!

We found an awesome game mat a few years ago and Scottie built a table that fits it perfectly! We also have a plexiglass top that we can put over the mat, and I can draw on it with dry erase markers. It's also beautiful when we take the mat off, it has a lovely stained wood finish underneath. :)

Games! )

For dinner that night Scottie made stuffed peppers! They were super good. :D

Tasty foods! )

Here's a picture of Scottie with the ferrets at the end of the night! They were being all cute and cuddley. :3

Armful of ferrets! )

I also got him a "card", which was an omnibus of Ghost Whisperer comics! I thought that a comic was a much cooler thing than a card and something that Scottie would probably enjoy more. n_n I'm also getting him a razor, we just haven't gotten it yet. :3

I also have been sculpting, but I haven't posted about it yet! I just don't think I've done enough yet to warrant a post. n_n
