Kitsune Death Eater Mask

This Death Eater Kitsune mask once belonged to the mysterious Furuhayashi Kasumi, the great dark sorceress and my teacher of the dark arts.The mask was inherited by me with a deep honor as the only student of Furuhayashi-sensei after her death. Sensei was an incredibly powerful master of magical arts, but as a Death Eater, many of her deeds were malfeasant and nightmarish. After a while, I noticed the tear-shaped patina drips began to appear on the mask. As told by Furuhayashi-sensei in her last letter, by Japanese tradition the warrior's mask not only covers the face, but also, possesses a spirit of it's past owner, which will help the new owner to win any battle, striking terror into the hearts of enemies. But instead, it became absolutely clear to me - the teacher's mask is weeping with tears of grief and remorse for the crimes committed during her lifetime.

 Alisa Tochylovska returns to our pages with this wonderfully patinated Kitsune Death Eater mask.

High Seas Hijinks

I'm a huge fan of making the tabletop gaming experience as immersive as possible, but even my efforts pale in comparison to the lengths Sebastian at Atmoseeker goes to.  His video on theming a gaming room for a pirate D&D game is a good introduction to his heavily theatrical approach.  That includes not only miniatures and props, but custom sound and a complete lighting system.  I didn't even know things like his wave-effect projector existed, but I'm definitely getting one.  

This approach isn't for everyone, but you'll find a lot of inspirational ideas.  Given the high quality of the content I was a little surprised the channel doesn't have more subscribers.  Since I'd like to see more I'll selfishly recommend you give him a follow.
