RastlWorld is just that. My online world.

So why would I need an online world? Because I have a lot of interests but they don't overlap so rather than inflict everything on people who visit I'll give them a choice of what to see.

Keep checking back for new content. I'll try to update this page with what's new but unless it's a new section just keep checking the blogs.

Latest DungeonBash/Dungeon Crawl
Sun, 27 Jul 2014 16:41:09 +0000 - I’ve taken to using the words ‘Dungeon Crawl’ when listing my game in convention schedules to make it very clear that it’s a dungeon crawl.  The name DungeonBash is great but it doesn’t say much about what the game is.  I’m trying all kinds of things to get people interested in playing the game. I [...]
Savaged Firefly
Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:28:23 +0000 - First off – I hope to be posting here more often.  I probably lost most of my followers by being a slacker but hey, my own fault.  Then again my gaming has taken a steep dive since I don’t have a gaming group. I decided to run a Savage Worlds game in the Firefly setting [...]
Dungeon Crawl
Sun, 20 Apr 2014 18:54:35 +0000 - I’ve been lax about posting pictures from the dungeon crawl in action.  Back in February.  But hey!  Here they are now. I asked players to take pictures during the game since I’ve found that I tend to be too busy to take enough pictures.  They did so I have pictures!  Here’s some of the better [...]
My first sculpts – dragons
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 23:15:04 +0000 - There’s an artist that makes ‘dice dragons’ and they’re darn cute.  They’re very much chibi in style and while that’s not my kind of thing the dragons have potential.  They’re also a simple style and the artist was kind enough to post a YouTube video on making them.  So I had a step-by-step tutorial on [...]
Insult to Injury
Mon, 04 Nov 2013 05:48:08 +0000 - I’m not going to name the company here.  It wouldn’t do any good.  But here’s my tale. I was accumulating a 15mm army as a gift.  A large army.  As such it’s generally not something you can do at one time. By the time it was about 2/3 complete there was no longer a reason [...]
Serenity RPG – First Reading
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 01:11:44 +0000 - For whatever reason I got a bug that I needed the Serenity RPG.  More on the bug in a moment. Unfortunately Paizo seems to have half the books in stock and seems to be in no rush to get the other half back in stock.  I happened to be on Amazon buying a different book [...]
Plastic Minis – Reaper Kickstarter Bones II
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 04:18:22 +0000 - Yeah yeah.  Here’s the link. I went in on their first one and got something like 240 minis for $100.  I added on a set of new paints, the KS Sophie, and 3 of the mini transport cases. Since then I’ve sold the minis and 2 of the 3 cases.  I’ll be selling the last [...]
DungeonBash is active again
Sun, 28 Jul 2013 16:08:13 +0000 - Well, it will be soon.  I’m working on it! These are most of the unfinished minis.  OK.  Some of them.  I’ve got friends helping paint the monster and they have or are painting about 3/4 of them.  Props to Michelle B and Lyn S to doing this. Michelle painted most of these.  I did paint [...]
Why I sold my Reaper Vampire Kickstarter Box
Sun, 09 Jun 2013 15:17:15 +0000 - Yes.  I was one of the people who joined the Reaper Kickstarter and ended up with a box of about 240 minis for $100.  Since I had very few add-ons my order shipped pretty early in the process.  There’s a lot of discussion on how the decided the order to ship them and I won’t [...]
Teaser – Mini Conversion Soon
Fri, 17 May 2013 15:57:57 +0000 - I’m starting in a Deadlands game and of course need a mini.  I’ve decided that going forward, when game appropriate, I will make both a standing and riding version of my mini.  It’s just cooler.  I know Litko makes horse stand bases and they’re very nice but they’re just not as cool as the mini [...]
This will be populated as soon as I can figure out how to have two RSS readers on the same page.

Who are you Rastl?

I'm just someone who enjoys hobbies. I'd much rather spend my time making something than watching TV or playing computer games. So I do the stuff you see in my blogs.

How do you find time to do all the things you say you do?

I just do. Sometimes I have things to do in the evening that take precedence over fun things like hobbies but most of the time I use my evenings and weekends to do the things I like. I don't have many other obligations on my time so I use it to do the things I like.

Will you do stuff for me?

Short answer - no. I stopped doing commission work a lot of years ago. I occasionally participate in painted mini exchanges but I really don't take on work for hire/barter/whining. I appreciate the compliment in you asking but it's not something I enjoy.

How did you do [something]?

If I didn't put it in the blog then I apologize. I'll gladly share how I did things any time. Just add a comment on the post in question asking how I did whatever it was and I'll post something with the answer if I can. I really do try to make sure I add the instructions but sometimes I just forget.
