Time to paint

Back to Natura for a bit – the embroidery is all done, time to paint. Right now, though, it’s time to nap. I’ve been up for…oh, I’ve lost count. Too long. Brain is fried and I’m tired. It will take days to finish the background anyway, best to get back to it when I’m rested.

It sets my mind and thoughts off on various fantasy scenarios. I also start wondering if I can use something like it in my next D&D session. (Professional hazard of being a Dungeon Master.

    Do they not beg to be given wings and unleashed in Number Appearing: 1d6 (x100)?

  4. Cicely & Hekuni Cat, thank you! I love the idea of trees which can move and talk and at least have the potential to be right dangerous and grab a person they don’t much care for. :D Goblin sharks are fabulous, made to fit into fantasy.
