    A lot of cool atmosphere in that artpiece.

    For those that are interested in the Rifelman’s top tier weapon here a good impression on the RL thing and how it worked. https://youtu.be/_Y01YMVJrJI

    Really appreciate the historical explanations and detailed views in the video.

    So this is what goes on Discord now – people discussing how to perform dark rituals. πŸ˜‰

    First of all, I liked some aspects of your video-making: the suitable background on the sides, the appropriate musical accompaniment, the sped up pace and screen text when there’s something of particular note. Good job!

    Regarding the ritual, perhaps you should’ve taken the rotten flesh from the grave sites and even the skull with you. And you might’ve taken the cross from the “recently vacated” house to help with your anti-suicide prayers, then ditched it before performing the ritual.

    Something that puzzled me is you’ve cooked and smoked some of the flesh, instead of saving all of the raw pieces for the ritual. It might take a succession of abominable acts to invoke the insatiable one.

    The night was cloudy, so that might’ve lessened the mystical potential.

    Another thought: might it be helpful to find an indian stone circle, deposit a human skull in it then perform the ritual?

    Definitely, adding too many ingredients or condiments makes one incapable to actually appreciate the taste of the individual ingredients, making their inclusion a waste.

    That tarte seems like an instant success. Did you use the super high temperatures as the articles claim are used in the original recipe?

    The aloo pyaz I make, following the recipe my grandmother taught me, uses tomato paste, curry powder (in Brazil, it’s easy to find a pre-made mix in supermarkets, usually made of turmeric, cardamom, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, clove, pepper and cinnamon) and added pepper (because most of these pre-made curry powders aren’t very strong).

    Speaking of food, did you play the Pappa’s line of games (pizzeria, burgueria and such)? I always found the depictions of food items in those games very convincing, and it was entertaining to assemble and cook the dishes (before the game gets grindy, that is).

    Damn, that’s a posse of gunslingers right there. Dudes from the ‘merican west showing the Germans what true gunmanship feels like.

    That looks wonderful! I appreciate you also like boiled eggs on your pizza.

    I usually make a very thin dough for baking directly on a frying pan.

    Today I’ve made some Indian food called Aloo Pyaz for lunch (potato, onion, tomato and curry stew for eating with chapati, which is a kind of flatbread). For dinner, there’s yesterday’s tabbouleh and pita bread.

    Ah, good stuff, Lance!

    How did the pizza specials go?

    They stop to read your comment and wonder how English seems much improved when you capitalize every word. After trading a few bad jokes, they resume the slaughter of your forces.

    I wish for everything wished on this thread so far.

    Ah, the old dwarven curse of avarice brings down another member of this proud race.

    He finds a mysterious chest lying around in the wilderness and becomes obsessed with acquiring its contents. He spends days trying to undo the locking mechanism, despite a lack of skill, just so he might acquire all the goods undamaged.

    On the 5th day of torment working on the intricacies of the lock, this poor haggard dwarf finally succeeds and opens the mysterious chest! On a bed of poisonous nightshade and gold coins in its interior lies a cursed scythe – oh, and a nice pair of boots.

    What follows is a short ascension for our would-be hero, as the scythe makes short work of his enemies – quite literally, cutting them in half.

    The turning point in this short story comes when he acquires a set of some of the best armor money can buy, a set for which he mysteriously had the exact amount for.

    Now, like any good tale of terror, one can speculate on the supernatural causes for his subsequent downfall, without arriving at anything conclusive. Some say he grew too proud, marching out of the castle in his glorious – if mismatched – armor. Some say it was because he stopped trusting the scythe as his sole guardian against the wild. Some say that the deadly nightshade was actually a potent amulet against the deadlier curse of the scythe, and that he doomed himself when he traded it for gold.

    All we know is that, in every combat that followed, something had changed. He would miss his swings and the dreaded curse would descend upon him.

    At a point, an avalanche of rocks hit him hard, only for him to find it was not a natural avalanche at all – it was precipitated by a terrible bulette which was stalking him (note: a DnD description of the monster actually mentions it uprooting trees and causing landslides in pursuit of its prey).

    Having narrowly avoided the encounter and with death following at his boot-clad heels, he eschews working at the peaceful apple farm, where he might have gotten some refreshment. A dwarf, after all, mocks all things green and fresh. He wanders off and finds something more to his liking – a nice ruined stone structure, old and gray.

    Clad head to heel and gripping his grim weapon tight, he enters the ruin. The only thing of him that would ever leave that place were his screams.

    Perhaps if you did a fast edited video topping 5 mins presenting the topics in countdown fashion. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Did you touch on the topic of the inspirations he has for doing these games? Statecraft, for instance, how did he get the idea to do this? And what overall features does he want to have in it in order to consider the project finished?

    I guess they found another way of silencing your guys, making sure they never came back to base.

    Just my general impression that TNT should more appropriate for something the size of the boulders we see in the game.

    Kit has a nice expressive style and I always look forward to more of his art pieces.
