My 3D tribute to Dave Trampier’s iconic cover of the 1st ed AD&D Players Handbook. When I started painting Otherworld Miniatures’ demon idol I knew I had to build it a proper arch and raised platform with some OSL paint effects. (Idol and altar from Otherworld Miniatures. Dungeon stone, treasure chest, and braziers cast in plaster from Hirst Arts molds. Tiny beads added for brazier loops.) Otherworld now makes braziers and a pair of thieves posed for climbing and prying the right eye gem.
Oooh crystal pony!!! Who does Rainbow Dash represent?
The human rogue. :-)
Because dice are awesome. They are colorful and fun and people collect them over lifetimes! My first set of dice I got when I was 9, and I still have them!
And a Cthulhu bag! Wooo!

Nice! I think I have those same red/black dice!

One of many things Community did right with this episode was Jeff Winger. He is very clearly not the “type” to be playing Dungeons & Dragons. He doesn’t get fantasy tropes, he doesn’t care to remember the name of anything, but he doesn’t dismiss the game because of it. It would be really easy to have him be that character who is Too Cool For This Silly Game, but he isn’t. The way he engages with the game shows it’s not just a ridiculous, melodramatic fantasy narrative - it’s problem-solving. And even in a game he doesn’t understand, he will use the means available him to solve the issue at hand, just like Jeff Winger does every other time he’s trying to solve a problem at Greendale.
And I love that about this episode. It pulls characterization and conflict from an interwoven, dual narrative between the story in the game and at the table, where the characters’ enthusiasm and emotional investment in the game isn’t played off as the joke.
