So it happened that it was my birthday on Tuesday, which is normally not worth mentioning. But I got such a lovely and nerdy birthday present from my loving wife that I just had to share it.
My Pathfinder group rotates where we play. It’s either at our house, or at the other couple’s. This of course means that I have to transport my various amounts of tabletop RPG crap (and it’s growing daily) to another place, plus haul around a laptop, a USB stick with all my tabletop PDFs, plus the tablet. My previous solution: not ideal.
Transportation in a box meant that my paper minis got squished, and I had to dig around a lot. I hadn’t figured out a better solution yet. But my wife did. So here’s what she presented me with for my birthday:
You will note that one drawer is missing and that the others are empty. But not much longer. I immediately went and ordered the Pathfinder Pawns for Bestiary and Rise of the Runelords. The Pathfinder Pawns are pretty genius. They’re printed on thick cardboard, double-side, and you put them in bases, creating very sturdy minis for combat. Paizo also produces paper minis for printing yourself, but as I currently have no color printer, it was a pain having them printed professionally and then building them. I will be looking at pre-painted minis at the Role Play Convention in Cologne in May. Which I am pretty excited about already.
The second part of my birthday present is a business suitcase. From the outside it looks like a very standard rolling Swiss suitcase, but on the inside it is 100% RPG nerd:
Heck, I can even store my campaign binder and many more things in there. When it’s all neatly packed, the handle pulls out and I can roll along. It would even fit the laptop and the tablet. It’s my all-in-one solution.
From now on, I shall be Kadomi: Traveling GM. 🙂
I have the best wife.
