Fourth try on my dire wolf. Two failed and one was broken while removing supports. Getting supports right is a tough balance. But this one finally worked!

This is straight off the printer, before removing supports:



This is after removing supports:



I am still amazed how much detail you can get out of resin.

I should have been worried when the DM asked me to build him a "Drow Army" with my 3D printer, but I did it anyway.

Here is the army:



In addition to them, there were about 10 quaggoth (quaggoths?). They took us captive and we were locked in a cell. But we used the chamberpot to entice the guards to come closer to the cell entrance, by throwing the contents in their face. When he came over, we grabbed him and broke his arm with the bars of the cell, got the keys and unlocked the door. Then the whole army attacked us, but the first firebolt took out 6 of them, and the second one took out another 10. My Barb took out several quaggoth and eventually we killed all of them, although I'm sure there are still more in the cavern somewhere.

Ok, so we played quite a bit over break, including a marathon 9 hour session the day after Christmas. Started at 6pm 12/26 and ended 3am on 12/27.

Played again NYE. This was much shorter, but fun. The campaign had three harpies and they managed to lure a few players into the sea, where they were attacked by a killer whale. My daughter conjured dolphins to protect them, which was actually smart because they are such a low CR she could summon 8 of them. One hit kills for the whale, but it still slowed down his approach to the players, so they ended up taking no damage.

After the harpies were dead, they continued to beat up on the whale "to protect the dolphins" and I reminded them that the dolphins were magic and would disappear in an hour anyway, so don't bother saving them.

Then my daughter asked the whale how old it was, and I said it was 8, AND his birthday that day. They decided to sign happy birthday to him, and even though it's non-canon I decided to make that enchant the whale and he ended up jumping onto the deck of their ship, almost capsizing it. Ooops! But she couldn't stop singing or he might attack, so it took some maneuvering to get the whale off the deck.

Anyway, it was quite fun, and made me feel a little more comfortable DM'ing, knowing that I can just make up stuff that doesn't quite fit "the rules" as long as it doesn't break anything.

Did our first remote DND session this past weekend. Literally just had a computer camera aimed at the map. Worked surprisingly well, but I am now going to investigate Roll20 and similar programs.

PS -- is Roll20 the gold standard here? Astral also has some functionality and is giving away pro benefits for two months due to COVID19. Anyone have another one worth checking out?
