This is where wallets come to die.

If you're interested in overpriced pvc, be sure to check out my shitty ebay store. It's like donating to /tc/ but actually getting something out of it.

I'll just be listing what I think of each of the online shops I brought from. These are all just opinions.

Otacute
They throw in free stuff, but some of their prices are unreasonable. Overall, their prices are still tolerable. I bought a bunch of stuff once and they gave me a MtG life counter and a calendar. Plus, unlike the others, preorders and already in stock items can be shipped together rather than shipped separately, because I'd like them to ship all my merchandise at once, to save up on shipping costs. So far, I think I'll be buying from there more often, even if my first SAL shipment from there took more than 3 weeks to arrive. Plus, it's all conveniently priced in USD.

Amiami
I forget how many times I fucked up there and they still think as if it were nothing. (I ordered a bunch of shit multiple times there, got pissed off at the shipping rates, but decided not to pay them; eventually I did buy some deck boxes from there, so it was fine in the end) Prices were decent, but I don't like the way they handle their payments and shipping.

Hobby Search
The only good thing is the points collection system in which you save up points for discounts and shit like that. Otherwise, most of the time, their prices are somewhat steep, but I'd buy from there if I couldn't get something from any of the other two.

I've checked some other English-language stores, but their prices were extremely unreasonable at best.

yeah theyre ok, I'd trust them. last I checked they only do EMS shipping but they do have good deals sometimes. the items on their website arent always updated so theres a chance theyre sold out.

>receiving a smelly hotglued fig
That scares the shit out of me.

And I dislike buying in JPY. It seems that with each passing day, I'm getting less and less for what I paid for.
>> No. 222 [Edit]
Well, Necro got the only three I bother to order from anymore, however I HIGHLY recommend amiami over any of the others. They are the fastest and the most reliable, with the easiest staff to get along with. Their prices are good, too. Except for shipping...

NOW.

EMS shipping is butthole rape. However, there is an air of uncertainty about SAL that I can not come to terms with. All my shit I've gotten via SAL has come to me looking like it was shipped from Afghanistan instead of Tokyo. So, ya gotta weigh your options.
>> No. 225 [Edit]

This.

Yet, I'd like to reiterate that I don't want to get assraped by shipping from AmiAmi and the exchange rate. So I'd much rather deal with Otacute than any place that deals in JPY, even if I ended up with a fucked up box. Plus, I mostly order tcg-related materials anyway, aside from cheap figs that are on sale.

Another, I suppose you could say, mediocre attempt at something for this.

the way you have the trees in the background reminds me of this. I think it would be cool to do a photo referencing a famous painting.

That's not a bad idea.

Nakamura Asumiko's oneshots are always nice. I'd suggest reading I am a Piano for those who haven't already.

Second. I am a Piano is probably one of my favorite one-shots period.

Because there is no /tg/ on Tohno-chan, we'll talk about it here.

I don't know how many of you are into TRPGs, but I figure that you're the kind of folks who might be interested in it, and I'd like to have the opportunity to have some fun with you guys. Escapism is the name of the game, here, and TRPGs have been a big hobby of mine since I was a boy.

I don't think you will, but I'll delete this thread if it fills with edition wars or some other nonsense.

I have my own IRC channel for those who like to IRC. irc://irc.rizon.net/jaelaismoe

If you don't know what a TRPG is, exactly, I'd be happy to explain it to you.

When you have time, just head over to my IRC channel and I'll distribute materials and info. If it looks like you're having a hard time getting there, I'll also upload some stuff to /ddl/. Party of getting ready for D&D is getting to know the people involved, and we've got some time anyway.

Wait, so u guys are gonna play, like through the Internet!? Wow!

I would love to join, but my english is very bad and i will surely ruin the game...
And, i have to work, so meh.

But i will keep an eye on this thread, just to see you guys play-
>> No. 120 [Edit]
Never been involved in an online campaign. Pretty cool. Have you guys started yet?
