So, here's a wall I hope people can get behind. It's a D&D DM screen. Basically I'm 3D printing the Ultimate GM Screen Of Doom for my D&D sessions with a group of friends and with all this talk of walls, it's nice to have a wall that actually brings people together and not separate them. Apparently GoFundMe give suggestions on what to say for these things... So here goes. At the bottom you'll get to see a piece of the wall so far... ;-)Who Will Benefit?
Obviously the only people will will really benefit are the players and myself as the DM... However you could just get yourself a little fuzzy warm feeling knowing that you've helped a complete group of strangers enjoy their Monday nights a little more.What Will The Funds Be Used For?
The funds will be used to buy PLA for my 3D printer, pay a little bit of the electricity bill and some time to paint the whole thing. If things go really well, I may even build a 180 degree DM compound... But that's just wild dreams right now.How Soon Do I Need The Funds?
I'm not in a rush for money. I'll still finish the wall regardless, but with all this talk of a GoFundME to fund Trump's wall, I thought I'd try to get in on that wall-building action. The only thing this wall will do is keep out eyes prying into the DM's notes...What Will The Support Mean To Me?
Well, anyone willing to donate money to a stranger to support thri D&D habit is always a good thing, right? If there's any money left over form the wall, I could always spend it on some 3D printed dungeon tiles as well and probably host a few online oneshot D&D sessions for people who donate as a thank you. If you don't play D&D, I can always get the D&D group to record a message of thanks with the wall once it's finished.How Grateful Will I Be For The Support?
A lot more than Trump would be for his stupid idea of a wall. C'mon, people! This is D&D we're talking about! Everyone is welcome to D&D no matter if you're from the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, Africa or Europe.
So come one, everyone! Let's build a wall that actually unites people in a common cause: To not let the DM get the whole party killed.
Now for that preview of the wall you've been waiting for:
This is the raw 3D printed wall top.
Which then goes on to be sprayed with primer...
Looking good with just that, but I think we can do a little better...
Going to pick out a few of the stones just to add a splash of colour to break it up...
A little bit of ochre, dark grey and brown... Looking much better, but I still think it looks too pristine... Let's dirty it up with a dark brown wash.
Mmm.... Now that's a wall worth funding.
