Knick-Knack: The Steel Defender

The trusty companion of Servo the Gnomish Artificer (full name Servo Sprocket Springfoot Seebo Silor), Knick-Knack is a truly trusty companion!

A Steel Guardian crafted from the collected weapons of myriad and sundry dungeon-dwelling denizens (a surprising number of scimitars I might add). Not exactly the filigree familiar one might expect of a seasoned artificer, but a hearty machine nonetheless.

He’s a friendly little spring-heeled chap but certainly won’t hesitate to cleave you in twain, should you threaten his master or his humble gang of misfits.


Creature Sheet:

The CSS-Only Webpage

Recently, while in the shower, I was contemplating how versatile CSS has become compared to how it used to be. I thought about how the appearance and even behaviour of a website can be changed so utterly as to be unrecognizable without its bespoke stylesheet. Then I had another thought. An idea really, and a rather silly one:

What if I were to create a webpage using ONLY Cascading Style Sheets?

Well, a stylesheet is somewhat of a code parasite; it can’t live independently and must always exist inside a host body in order to function (in this case, it’s the host head). So that’s what I limited myself to. The head, shoulders, knees, and toes of an HTML document with nothing else inside it. Save for the meta tags in the head, this document is completely barren. Without the sheet, you’d be faced with a completely blank white page with nary a stray bracket to its name.

But enough blathering about my nonsense! You want to see what I did, right? I mean, I can’t imagine you’d have read this far without being at least a LITTLE curious…

Squish! – An Art Challenge

After seeing an art challenge posted by my ol buddy Enzo (click here to view), I decided to try my hand at this fun little skill-testing feat and made the image you see before you. I didn’t really have a character to hand at the time so I just doodled a lil self-portrait on the spot.

The goal of the challenge is to sketch a really squished version and a really elongated version of your OC, then use the transform tool to stretch the sketches to roughly the proportions they would normally appear to be. From there, you use the transformed versions of your sketches as a base to finish 2 drawings. This can have some pretty interesting results!

If you’d like to try it for yourself, you can share your Squish challenge drawings on this CyberForum post!

“The People’s Cannon” – Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeon Masters hate them: How one party converted 15 filthy peasants into an over-powered railgun of death using 1 weird trick!

Not to be confused with “The People’s Cannon”, a Magic the Gathering deck using a similarly OP dynamic.

The past weekend, I attended the third annual Queen City Anifest as a volunteer. I walked the perimeter and handed out water to vendors mostly, and had a pretty good time. After my shift, I sat down at the D&D table and joined a rousing game.
We stayed to talk to the Dungeon Master after the game. During our conversation, he described the time he experienced what may well be one of the most hilarious, game-breaking logic bugs ever encountered. This super-combo move is called “The People’s Cannon” (or as I like to call it, “The Caber Toss of Doom”).

It really just boils down to the interaction between 2 rules:

  1. Players with high charisma can ask villagers to do simple tasks.
  2. Simple actions – such as passing a 10 foot pole – take 1 second of in-game time to complete.

Firing the Cannon:

  • Two players request something like 15 villagers to follow them to the lair of some incredibly powerful monster.
  • Once the monster is in sight, a player requests the villagers stand single file with 10 feet between each.
  • The players then stand at either end of the line and instruct the villagers to pass on whatever is handed to them.
  • The first player passes a 10-foot pole to the first villager, who then passes it to the next, and so on.
    (Remember, only 1 second passes between when the first player hands off the pole to when the second player receives it. Therefore, by the time it reaches the end of the line, it must be moving at 150 feet per second. That’s over 100 miles per hour!)
  • The second player – who must be quite strong – then throws the high-velocity pole directly at the monster.
  • This move deals critical damage almost inevitably, assuming your roll was successful.

With this method, you are essentially able to fire an NPC-Powered Railgun at will, making your party veritable gods amongst men.

It is worth noting, however, that virtually no dungeon masters will actually allow this to play out. That said, they’ll probably get a kick out of you trying. Generally, game-breaking bugs are at the discretion of the DM to fix ad-hoc.

Editors Note: Obviously, this post is a bit of a break from our “regularly scheduled programming”, but so is everything on this site. What is regular, anyway?
