I liked them, gotta say. Gritty. I liked the whole squalor thing. I've always managed to squeeze Sanctuary into a campaign. It not as much that you can "see" the place, it's more that you can smell it. That may be an odd comment but it's just how I perceive it.

I suppose the next question is where did it smell like?

Hmm, most similar smelling city for me would be Tashkent

(this is the barking mad thread isn't it???)

Well done Marlith, you are right!  :D



He wrote 'vent' instead of 'vends'. (Wind instead off sell). This guy is writing phonologically his mother tongue.



Vener voir => Venez voir.

On ne s'est jamais => On ne sait jamais.



3 verbs, 3 mistakes  :? Is ebay.com so poor grammatically speaking ?

It's actually a nice set.  Duck soup for a miniatures man to reassemble the old undead regiment.

Nice to see good old Hecatron again, even with the day-glo beard.

Unless the seller's done extensive modifications, that's the haft of his flail he's holding, not his naughty bits.  It's the camera-angle that makes it look suggestive.

That's a relief.  Now I can stop wondering why fire giant twangers are a different color than the rest of their skin.   :evil:

I kinda figured that he was not holding his fleshly flail.
