That's why they invented these.

u/CuriousGidge · 41 pointsr/gifs


I would never have imagined such a sophisticated end result with just a Sharpie!

I have a lot to learn!

u/chicklet2011 · 19 pointsr/LawSchool

I'm linking my favorite products!


Warning: if you hand write, you're going to be writing A LOT. I feel like I learn better when I do my class notes by hand, but I do have a hard time keeping up with the pace of the class. Each professor's teaching style has an impact on the way you take your notes. Be prepared to be flexible. (I hate that my note system is not uniform across my classes, but I know it is better that way)


If you like pen-and-paper:

These spiral notebooks have durable brightly colored covers that will survive your backpack, and it is a good idea to keep your notes organized by subject. The paper is thick enough that good highlighter (which I will also link) won't bleed through.

These erasable pens are great. They write very smoothly and erase cleanly--NOT at all like the crappy blue erasable pens of our youth. If you take notes in your textbook, these pens are the way to do it. I love them so much that I was having them shipped from Japan before they even hit the US market.

These standard pens are my go-to for anything that I don't want to be erasable. They write smoothly, and dry quickly enough that they don't smudge or transfer (I'm not sure for left-handed people though).

This mechanical pencil is what I use when I can't use pens. I like that it uses .5mm lead so that your writing can be small and precise. The barrel is large so it is comfortable to write with for extended periods of time (think blue-book exams).

These highlighters are the best. The colors are intentional mild/pastel so that they do not distract from other information on the page, but are easy to spot when you're looking for your highlights. They don't bleed through paper unless it is toilet-paper thin. When they do bleed through very very thin paper, the mild colors make it so that it is not a distraction.


If you like pen-and-paper, but are afraid of your notes being lost or stolen:

Rocketbook Everlast Notebook coordinates with an app that lets you create a digital copy of your notes. Scan a picture of the page, and the QR code on each page tells the app where to send a SEARCHABLE .pdf copy of your handwritten notes. It works with Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, OneNote, OneDrive, Trello, Slack, box, Google Photos, and email. Best of all, the notebook is completely reusable! (As long as you use writing tools from Pilot's Frixion line) Once you've filled the book, you wipe down the plastic pages with a hot damp towel and you can use the book again. I've filled and reused my Rocketbook 4 time so far, and the pages are still in great condition. I send my notes to Google Drive and OneNote, and I've never had any problems.

These highlighters can be used inside the Rocketbook, or on regular paper.


If you're thinking about going digital:

Your school might provide access to note taking programs. My school provides the full Office 365 Online suite, so I used OneNote. I was a pen-and-paper person in undergrad, and it pains me to switch to digital, but I just need that copy/paste functionality.


Textbook Supplies:

These sticky flags just came in the mail the other day, and I am loving them for use in my textbooks. I HATE writing in my textbooks, so instead I use these sticky flags to point at lines my professors emphasize in class.

These lined sticky notes are what I used when I just can't avoid adding notes to my casebooks. I avoid the "super-sticky" post-its because casebook pages are thin, and the super-sticky adhesive tears the pages when you reposition notes.

This book stand lives in my backpack now. When I started 1L year my back and neck hurt all the time from hunching over my casebooks for hours every day. This book stand makes it so the book comes to my face, instead of my face to the book. My posture is much better.

Reading glasses are something worth looking into and talking to your eye doctor about. After just one semester of staring at books and screens all day, I went from needing a mild prescription to see long-distance to needing full-on bifocals. I linked some glasses that will magnify your textbooks up close and and also filter out the blue light from screens. Talk to your doctor.

If you are assigned soft-cover reference materials, like The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, or Rule of Contract Law, you can take those books to FedEx or UPS, and they can spiral-bind them for you so that they lay flat and are easier to flip through. This can save you so much time on an exam.


Most importantly, have a planner.

You can get one from the store, you can print pages on line, you can leave yourself sticky-notes, or you can write your to-do list on your hands, whatever. No matter how you record it, it is crucial to have plan and stick to it. You're about to be hit with an overwhelming amount of conflicting obligations and opportunities, and there will always be something you ought to be working on. Plan and schedule your study time. Take time away to take care of yourself, and make a note to keep up with friends and/or family. You're never going to have "free time" in law school, but you can definitely have some flex time if you make a conscious effort to make room in your schedule.


Last: you don't need any of this stuff to be successful. Don't worry about what other people are doing, or even what the school tells you to do. If you feel like you do your personal best with a #2 pencil and loose leaf paper, then do that. Paying attention and managing your time wisely are far more important than having the perfect highlighters and the most organized planner.

u/k_kolsch · 14 pointsr/math

This is a really tough question because mathematicians (or academicians in general) tend to be pretty idiosyncratic.

For me, I would like /u/fermesomme's gift of a fountain pen, but I bet /u/cocojambles wouldn't, since cocojambles prefers pencil. I tend to see that a mathematician has strong preferences for writing implements. My point is don't take any recommendation blindly.

That said,

  • the book Proofs from the Book is a crowd-pleaser.

  • I made my wife a Soma cube using wood glue and baby blocks. It has a message if solved in a particular way. I included a print out similar to this for other goals.

  • I have a small dry erase board and a box of dry erase crayons. That's right crayons. (NB: the craveat above)

  • I also like the ideas for knickknacks like /u/sleeps_with_crazy and /u/krogger

Sharpie Metallic Fine Point Permanent Markers, 3, Colored-1823815

These bad boys! Gold, silver and copper.

u/sokshock · 10 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Not dry erase pens on a chessex mat!!!!!! If you're getting the standard old school chessex mat you'll need WET ERASE markers. Specifically the kind that was used on the over head projectors when we were kids (depending on how old you are - I'm thinking early 2000's). I was having trouble finding the wet erase markers at office supply stores but was able to find them at my local university store. Paizo's flip mats will work with dry erase or wet erase but I would still go for the wet erase on those because it prevents the map from being easily erased while people move the minis and mess with the table.

The Chessex mat I'd recommend - Reversable-choose your size
The markers I'd recommend - Staedtler's Non Permanent Lumocolor specifically the medium tip, fine is too small or Expo Vis-a-Vis Wet Erase

Hope this helps.

Edit- To quote chessex about dry erase markers- 'Never use dry erase, permanent, or grease-pencil markers. The vinyl is too porous for the lines created from them to be able to be removed. If you have any doubt of the suitability of any particular
marker, draw a small line on the border, let sit for awhile, and see how well it can be removed. Better to have a small permanent blemish on the edge of the mat than a permanent map drawn on the entirety of the mat!'

u/knowah1 · 10 pointsr/DesignPorn

Sharpie has had them for years as well, and I prefer their design.

u/MisterValiant · 8 pointsr/transformers

My wife recently got deal on a set of paint pens (she'd had her eye on them for a while and snagged them for like $16), and I decided to try them out. So far they've been working pretty well, good for simple detail work without the cleanup of brushes. For Ironhide I went in on the inside of his windshield, and all in all I think he turned out okay, although I do think I did much better with Prime.

u/RosaFloribunda · 8 pointsr/muacirclejerk

Not even Zebra Mildliners? You pore.

u/fuck_off_email · 7 pointsr/rpg

I have been using Vis-A-Vis and they seem to work pretty well.. This multi-color pack is the specific set I have.

u/show_me_the_math · 7 pointsr/arcteryx

If you're going to do this user a fabric marker. They shouldn't bleed and can be applied again. Their downside is that if you are writing with it on fabric sometimes the writing is hard to read.

Sharpie Rub-A-Dub Permanent Laundry Marker Fine Black - Pack of 1

u/FroZnFlavr · 7 pointsr/ofcoursethatsathing
u/nysska · 7 pointsr/StudentNurse

I am just starting my senior year of my BSN program and have an unhealthy love for school supplies!

  • Pens- Pilot Juice pens in 0.5mm. They don't smear, are a fine tip, and don't bleed through paper. I have them in the multi-color pack that I use for rewriting notes, and which makes note taking more fun!

  • Highlighters- Zebra Pen Mildliner. The colors are different than typical highlighters, which helps with organizing my notes. The pens have a chisel tip on one side and a marker tip on the other, which is helpful for small print (like textbooks).

  • Planner- I use the Erin Condren Lifeplanner and love it! It's pricey, but the quality is great. I'm also a sucker for a motivational quote, so there's that.

  • Misc- I study best by rewriting things and I got tired of using so much paper. I bought some page protectors and slip in a blank sheet of paper. Then I use whiteboard markers to write and rewrite things -- kind of like a mini white board, but portable.

  • I use a ton of paperclips and binder clips so I just leave some of those in my pencil pouch.
  • Not really supply related, but more of a tip. I kept a tin of mints in my clinical clipboard. We weren't allowed to chew gum, but I feel like I have wicked coffee breath first thing in the morning. So the mints were nice to have.
u/Madgvox · 6 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

Ballpoint pens are the pencils of the ink world. You can build up darkness with a ballpoint pen like you would a pencil. The reasons against using ballpoint -- at least at first -- are the same reasons Uncomfortable outlined in the above article, especially the third point (everything is black and white - there are no gradients to complicate matters).

At least at first (for the homework), you should use felt tip for all the reasons mentioned. As you go into further lessons, and line/ellipse practice becomes a small daily routine, using ballpoint is probably a good idea as those exercises tend to kill pens.

However any practice is better than no practice, so if you're unable to get a felt tip for whatever reason, that's not a reason to stop practicing.

PS if you're concerned about price, get some ultra fine point sharpies. They're very cheap and will give you the benefits of using a felt tip. The trade-off is a poor ink quality, which you don't care about for these exercises anyway.

u/asciiaardvark · 6 pointsr/fountainpens

Me too.

When I was in school, I only used mechanical pencils. But now I don't mind the un-erasability of ink and basically only use fountain pens. I do find that dip pens help me focus on the act of writing, so I use them for calligraphy practice.

The only ball-point I use is a space-pen, which works on waterproof paper so I can take notes while kayaking.

> I still love gel and felt tipped pens

Did you know Sharpie makes a brush tip? It's a surprisingly flexible felt-ish substance; I keep one for writing on plastic/glass/metal. Fun fact: on non-porous surfaces like metal & most plastic, Sharpie is wet-erase with solvents like alcohol & acetone :)

u/ThisAccontIsForCats · 6 pointsr/BasicBulletJournals

It looks like a Zebra mildliner. Granted, it looks like they only have two shades. I got a pack of 15 on Amazon, and they only had one grey, but I like all the other colors too.

u/PFS_Character · 5 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

Don't print them… draw your own on a reusable surface. Your maps don't don't need to be super detailed.

Get a $12.00 flip mat and some wet erase markers and just sketch out the corridors to scale.

Another solution is a chessex map. If you're really going to get into the hobby then this is a longer-term solution than the flip mats.

A final option is to buy a roll of 1" grid paper and some sharpies, and draw your own.

All of these are cheaper than buying a projector or printing each map to a 1" grid scale.

u/Hellstyrant · 5 pointsr/Tools

Sharpie 39108PP Fine Point Metallic Silver Permanent Marker, 1 Blister Pack with 2 Markers each for A Total of 2 Markers

u/Alyathea · 5 pointsr/3DS

best markers I've found are POSCA paint markers.

I would do a light sanding with 800 grade sand paper on them, prime them with the backing color you want, and let it dry. Then you can draw on them and clear coat.

I recommend doing it this way, as sometimes if you don't prep the plate first the clear coat can have weird effects.

The items I've used:

The primer you can use black/white/any color for backing, and I use the same brand in a clear matte finish for the clear coat.

u/loganyobo2 · 5 pointsr/EDC

Sharpie sells regular, black, point-tipped (if that's a thing) sharpies in a metal casing. Keep the casing, buy refills

[here] (

u/cthulhubert · 5 pointsr/EDC

The core material EDC, to me would be knife, light and cellphone. But cool keychain gidgets are really nice too.

So I'd say if you have a knife, a good flashlight would be next, then a backup knife and light (one is none, two is one). I like a multi-tool or SAK for my backup knife, and a keychain light for my backup torch.

(In case you're curious, after that I start considering footwear, gloves, hats and other clothing.)

(Sorry, I'm feeling a bit lazy, so you'll have to live with bare links.)

This one is pretty popular for keychain use:

Fenix has single AA and 123 powered lights that are well regarded and compact:

There are a lot of other brands worthy of consideration too, of course (Fourseven's mini, Jetbeam, Klarus, Zebra, just to name a few).

There are also a lot of much larger but more capable flashlights out there.

Keychain stuff is always nice:
I use these sliver grippers way more than I thought I would. The convenience of always having them around is unparalleled:
I've been thinking of getting this, I'm a little leery about that much stuff for so little cost though:
I love this style of keyring, but it's way cheaper on eBay:
Little one-piece keychain tools have become really popular, and I really like having a little prying and screwing tool always present.
The Gerber Shard is cheap but probably at least worth what you pay for it:
This one has a bit more functionality, and is made of the magically delicious titanium:

Keychain multi-tools can be good.
Here's one from Gerber:
Supposedly the build quality isn't as good as Leatherman's though:

I'd also recommend looking for a glow in the dark lanyard.

A pen you can EDC is another "you're surprised how often you use it" item. I have an Inka and it's definitely alright, though a bit fiddly:
The biggest competitor is the classic Fisher Bullet Space Pen:

Something to write on is nice. I'm a real child of the digital age, but I still like having an analog recording medium on me. I prefer Pentalic's pocket size books to Moleskine's. They're a little thicker, but they have a flexible cover, and are usually cheaper. Here's one: but I don't know if it's ruled or grid or what. I also prefer a bright color cover to make it easy to spot.

Continuing on the writing stuff matter, a sharpie and/or a metallic (ink) sharpie are nice to have. You can get sharpies with stainless steel cases too, which feel nicer to hold, and you're a little less likely to forget somewhere.
Black (dozen):
Stainless Steel:

I think everybody should carry some sort of bandanna. I carry an off-brand buff (tubular bandanna) and an olive drab shemagh.

I like to carry a small baggie of what I call MacGuyver goods. Paracord (bound up in a hanayawa right now), some gorilla tape and electrical tape wrapped around a card, super glue, a sewing kit, zip ties, twist ties, rubber bands, safety pins, binder clips, and a few 1 quart ziplock freezer bags. (Like hell I'm finding links for all of those.)

Yet another "surprising how useful it turns out to be" item is a small mirror:

Whistles are useful for warning people of fire or danger, or calling for help, so I like to carry one:

A monocular is fun to have on your person. This particular model is really great because of its super low minimum focusing distance, which lets you use it as a sort of loupe. In regular mode it's good for looking for house numbers or your car in a parking lot, that sort of thing:

I think that's all I could come up with off the top of my head.

u/jimbozinoh · 5 pointsr/FellowKids

Meh, some iron ons or a fabric marker should do the trick.

u/Sean_The_Chef · 5 pointsr/Gunpla

Yep, here is the set that I used. The excess wipes off pretty easy with the thumb.

u/Disburden · 5 pointsr/CrossStitch

One of my favorite things is a mini floss box because its the perfect size for everything I need right on hand. I just put my current WIP floss and tools in there. My other favorite thing is the Sharpie Clearview Highlighters because they fit in my floss boxes :)

u/AStarNamedAltair · 5 pointsr/Wishlist

I have seizures about 5-10 times a day, I use my journal to track my triggers and my seizures in relation to them. I track how much sleep I get a night, how much water I drink a day, and how much screen time I have. Then on the page next to it, I track how long my seizures last, and what happens before them. It's a nice set up and I can keep an eye on what's been happening in my brain.

I find that I prefer using dot grid journals for this because of the way I chart. It is a really nice visual layout and it looks very clean.

I also prefer to use these pens when I'm journaling because the colors are super vibrant, but they don't bleed!

u/andTheColorRuns · 4 pointsr/rpg

Yeah don't use dry erase markers. Use wet erase ones. I personally use these, and they haven't yet stained my mat.

u/Brendan123746 · 4 pointsr/gifs

Everyone is assuming its permanent marker, but It could be wet erase marker. They are made for dry erase boards, but don't erase without water.

u/DnDYetti · 4 pointsr/DnD

> 1) what do you recomend to do?

I'd personally start with 5e, because it is a much more simplified system that allows for more aspects of role-playing, which is great for everyone - especially new players.

A nice start for new groups to DnD is a starter set. Here is a link to buy a starter set which comes with a 64-page adventure pre-made module book, a 32-page rule-book for playing characters level 1–5, 5 pregenerated characters, each with a character sheet and supporting reference material, and 6 dice. If you are playing 5e, you need the 5e books - the 3.5 books won't work for 5e, they are completely different games due to additional information added over each new edition.

I'd also recommend that you all sit down together in the same room, hook up a computer to a TV in the room, and watch some good DnD games to figure out what role-playing means, how DM's look in action, and how the game runs overall. Shows such as Critical-Role, or Acquisitions Incorporated are amazing.

Here is the playlsit for Critical Role on Youtube:

u/amaeb · 4 pointsr/CrossStitch

I can't find the original comment but I saw someone here recommend these:

[Pilot Highlighter Frixion Light, 6 Soft Color Set (SFL-60SL-6CS)](Pilot Highlighter Frixion Light, 6 Soft Color Set (SFL-60SL-6CS)

I bought them and have no complaints. They're erasable too so that's neat (and I think that's why they don't seem to bleed into the paper).

u/SarahSparrow16 · 4 pointsr/bulletjournal

They're called mildliners! I purchased the pack of 15 I linked here, but they also come in packages of 5 and I believe you can purchase certain colors individually too.

u/momodonut · 3 pointsr/DIY

No experience, but I read in a DnD forum that "wet" erase markers work a lot better. They're made for use on transparencies. These were mentioned specifically: Expo Vis-A-Vis Wet Erase Markers

u/PghDrake · 3 pointsr/DnD

For miniatures, be warned that the Heroclix and Mage Knight minis, while useable, are mostly larger than the 1" standard width (for a medium character or creature) - this is generally not that big of a problem but if you're going with modular terrain it means they may not fit well, especially along with other miniatures beside them.

Ebay is a good choice for miniatures, especially if you have particular needs for certain things - you want that male elf archer in leather armor, or are you looking for a beholder? You can find and get them there. Here's my favorite seller for these things, shipping is definitely reasonable and the choices are expansive:

Another option to miniatures are tokens, and they are much, much cheaper. These are small cardboard circles that fit a 1" block as standard size (larger creatures will fill more, of course). The best starter set for this for a DM is the Monster Vault, but there are a ton of others as well. I suggest ebay for these for the most part, there are some that sell them by the sheet and others that sell the full boxed sets. You can get these for characters as well as monsters. Here's a link to the Monster Vault so you can see what you get with it:

Cheapest and most versatile "professional looking" option for the map / terrain is a chessex battlemat - make sure you have WET ERASE markers, not dry erase and keep it clean between adventures. Below are links to one of their mats (there are other sizes, just search on amazon) and to some excellent markers:

Cheapest option for modular-type terrain would be tiles. These are cardboard "grids" that most often have designs on them and come in different sizes. The best starter set out there is the Dungeon Tiles Master Set - The Dungeon. It has a lot of tiles and is pretty versatile, at least for base grid options like dungeons and general floors. There are a ton of other options for them - again I suggest you look on ebay for these because you can often find used ones that are in perfect shape sold as a set, or even individual tiles if there's something in particular you need. This is the link to the aforementioned base set on amazon so you can see what it has:

If you want to spend more money and go with something much more dynamic, there are 3-d modular sets ranging from paper to near-stone like quality but they can cost a ton. I have a large set of Dungeonstone ( that I bring out and always get oo's and ahh's. But they're heavy to carry around a lot, especially if I need the whole set. Another option, that's generally slightly more expensive than dungeonstone is Dwarven Forge. You can look them up - but I only mention this in case you decide to spend more money than you want to at this point. :)

Good luck! I hope this helps.

u/SPBCS · 3 pointsr/fakeid

If you're gonna use a sharpie, use the ultra fine tip ones. Never use thick sharpies.

Snapchat sigs come out the best. Some signature apps make the pic was too low res.

u/timschmidt · 3 pointsr/EDC
u/sos8balla · 3 pointsr/Sneakers

I use these. They come in a few different sizes so I have 3 or 4 sets. Before you apply paint to Canvas shoes you need to prep them with gesso or a textile medium so your colors don't bleed. When I finish painting I spray them with krylon clear coat or matte depending on the look I'm going for.

u/kassablaze · 3 pointsr/PenmanshipPorn
u/Demetrius3D · 3 pointsr/EDC

That's pretty cool! You do know you can get them in stainless steel, though.

edit: If you could do a mini Sharpie in brass, though... I'd pay you decent money!

u/sparklybirthdaypants · 3 pointsr/gardening

I’m an avid rock painter and can help. Acrylic paint is best. Also, Posca pens are awesome for finer details.

u/zz_x_zz · 3 pointsr/boardgames

I'm not a painter at all so I took somebody's advice on BGG, primed everything black and then basically drew on the color with these paint pens. The one I used I think was either a eight or ten pack but they worked brilliantly and, apart from being time consuming, I ended up with something pretty nice. The raised lines on the gear keeps the surface tension of the paint from spilling off in most cases and it really just becomes an exercise in tracing lines with a steady hand.

I'm away from home for the week so I can't snap you a picture but if you're curious I can send you one next week so you can see how it came out.

u/thegrieve · 3 pointsr/BasicBulletJournals

Double vote for the zebra mildliner. These are the ones I use, mostly just the gray, but I get fancy some days.

u/bomturtiljorda · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

u/the_letter_seven · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

They’re the zebra mildliners that a lot of people use. I bought the three pack that I linked but I mostly use the ones from the blue pack.

u/k_vp · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Thank you so much!

For highlighters I pretty much exclusively use the zebra midliners (linked to amazon page because sometimes they have really good deals on these, I got mine for super cheap!)

And for pens, I believe I made this layout using a black staedtler fineliner, but my all-time favorite pens are muji! (I like to use the 0.38-mm personally).

u/Lanilauro · 3 pointsr/Design

I've been self teaching myself up until this coming January, when I'll be taking on a graphic design minor. A few things that I use that I happen to really enjoy are:

  • 7.5"x 9.5" dotted paged Moleskine Classic Notebook (softcover I find, personally is better than their hard covers) >Moleskine Notebook<
  • I sometimes will also print out dotted loose sheets or grid-lined loose sheets from template websites >PrintablePaper<
  • I really like the Pentel RSVP Black ink fine-tip pens, but this is after a lot of trial and error of finding a minimally smudge, smooth continuous pen that works for lefties that isn't gel ink.
  • I would invest a little bit of extra money into getting a METAL ruler, rather than a plastic or rubber one as the plastic and rubbers might deform, but the metal ones will always keep their shape. >Metal Rulers<
  • I'd also get some circle stencils and a compass. >Compass & Circle Stencils<
  • It took me a really long time to feed into the hype, but when I did, I regretted not trying them sooner, but those Zebra Mildliner highlighters you see all over Pinterest, Tumblr and all other sites for bullet journaling and such are actually super nice and high-quality. They come with a chisel AND a fine tip, and so I carry them around wherever I go if I bring my notebook with me. >Mildliners<

    I hope this helps you!!! Good luck in your studies.

Here. Take $20 and buy this. Trust me on this. You'll save a lot of money, and they're AWESOME quality.

If you're playing a combat-intensive game (ask your DM) go to your local gameshop and buy a mini to represent you. Plastic would probably be best since you're new, but if you want to go all out, buy a pewter and paint it. You'll love it more.

PDFs are fine for books you're not going to reference often, but you're best off getting physical copies of the books. They're so much easier to work with. Check out your local used book stores. They're the best place to find this stuff, as most of it's out of print. Stay away from ebay on this. People WAY overvalue their books.

I've personally never played pathfinder, but I'm a D&D 3.5 vet. I've heard they're pretty similar. Any other questions I'll be happy to answer. Welcome to the life. You couldn't pick a better way to waste all you time and money :).

EDIT: Also, depending on your play surface, go buy a set of these. Make sure they're wet-erase, NOT DRY ERASE. Dry erase stain some play surfaces. Your DM will likely have a set, but they're usually... ahem... well used, and crappy. Buy a set of your own, take a pocket knife and scratch them in a particular spot to mark them, and guard them with your life.

u/PantsIsDown · 2 pointsr/Dungeons_and_Dragons

Awesome! That's how I play!

Here's a list of things I suggest as a DM:

Chessex Mat
or [Megamat](Chessex Role Playing Play Mat: MEGAMAT Double-Sided Reversible Mat for RPGs and Miniature Figure Games - 34 1/2in x 48in
[Vis-A-Vis Markers](Expo Vis-A-Vis Wet-Erase Overhead Transparency Markers, Fine Point, 8-Pack Pouch, Assorted Colors to write on the map
[Starter set of minis](D&D Icons of the Realms: Tyranny of Dragons Starter Set
Goblin Minis
Search Reaper Minis on Amazon and you'll find some fun stuff
I also use flat glass marbles as place holders for NPCs that I don't have minis for. They were super helpful when I was first starting.
A graphing notebook and drawing paper
Mechanical pencils and a set of his favorite pens

I can't think of anything else

u/hm_joker · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

The Chessex Wet Erase mat is the one I use and all my DM friends use (in various sizes). that being said, you'll want a pack of these bad boys, because the fine point really does help.

For minis, they're pretty expensive off that bat so everyone advises to buy them slowly as you need them. Reaper bones have a lot of cheaper mini sets for starting out which are great. Personally I buy a few of the most common enemy and the main bad guy for each campaign. A good and cheaper alternative are pawns that you can use while you build your collection. Or, just print small pictures of monsters and tape them to a coin or washer to make fast minis that have colored pictures.

For cheap/fast 2d terrain, check out papercraft. A lot of people fold and draw on paper or cardboard to make terrain, or you can print out pictures of stuff and add it to terrain. Here is an example from u/cardboard-DM (who makes awesome stuff).

Best of luck!

u/YourVirgil · 2 pointsr/dndnext

Yeah, get yourself a set of overhead projector markers like these. Permanent/wet erase/dry erase won’t work.

Also, pay an extra ten bucks for a Chessex Megamat, not a Chessex Battlemat. Your ranged characters will thank you for the larger area to work with. Chessex has three sizes of the vinyl mats: Battlemat (small, fits basically any table), Megamat (medium, fits dining tables), and Mondomat (better build your own gaming table for this bad boy).

In addition, the mats come with 1.5 or 1 inch squares/hexes (squares on one side, hexes on the other). Be sure to get the 1 inch size as this gives you more squares in the same area, and it properly scales with minis as the players fight larger monsters (a huge mini is four squares, but four 1.5 inch squares is a lot bigger than four 1 inch squares, and the mini will look smaller than the space on the grid that it actually threatens).

u/Hasjustbeenpwned · 2 pointsr/DungeonsAndDragons

First trick is deciding which edition you want to play, for new players I highly recommend sticking to 4th edition, the rules are simpler and combat is generally more interesting. If you guys are brand and are new starting with nothing, I highly recommend picking up the 4th edition DM Manual 1, Monster Manual 1, and the Player's Handbook 1.

If your DM wants to take his hand at designing his own adventures I also highly recommend picking up a wet erase play mat as well as wet erase markers. I recommend wet erase over dry erase as dry erase can easily be wiped off during combat and such.

You'll also want to buy some dice for everyone to use, there are a few ways to go about that, you can mismatch dice from local hobby shops, you could buy dice sets or you could purchase the Chessex "Pound of Dice" for the whole group's use and ease. I, as a highly superstitious gamer, own 2 dice sets of my own and an additional lucky D20 that I don't let anyone touch (as they'll likely suck the luck out of it), so figure out what kind of gamers you are and what dice will best suit you.

As you guys grow and expand you may want to look into getting the other Player's Handbooks, to increase your options as players, as well as the other monster manuals for easier adventure creation for your DM.

I also highly recommend your DM (for his ease in adventure creation) look into reading materials on the internet (easily found for free) to help create the most interesting and fun adventures possible. One I can recommend off-hand is Chris Perkin's (a writer for the D&D books and "professional DM") "blog" called "The DM Experience."

Also if you have any other questions feel free to ask me in a comment or message me, I love to see new player getting into the game and would like to help in any way possible.

Just be sure to have fun, happy gaming :D

u/JonTheBold · 2 pointsr/DungeonoftheMadMage

That is very cool, but I worry about your ability to stay ahead of your group with the foamcore maps, for several reasons:

  1. The maps aren't often linear, which means you'll probably need to be at least one full floor ahead of them in order to not get caught out.
  2. Not all locations are going to feature combat, which means you may end up preparing locations which never get used.
  3. Conversely, if you skip a location, you may end up needing to have it prepared if the party decides to chase a fleeing monster there or whatnot.
  4. The levels are positively HUGE. At one inch per 5 foot square, you're talking 10 square feet of map per level in many cases (some larger, some smaller).
  5. Creating smaller "room chunklets" might seem appealing as an alternative, but even that work is probably foiled by all of the variance in this dungeon (angled room features, caves and tunnels, and even "outdoor" locations).

    I honestly think you're best off buying a good Chessex battle mat and wet erase markers. That will give you the flexibility you need to map what needs mapping and narrate everything else.

    Personally, I've opted for a table insert with a high-res TV for digital maps, but that's out of the price range of most.
u/Evilcoatrack · 2 pointsr/DnD

Huh. They're $3 USD for a 4-pack on amazon

u/a_skeleton_wizard · 2 pointsr/dndnext

Chessex Role Playing Play Mat: Battlemat Double-Sided Reversible Mat for RPGs and Miniature Figure Games (26 in x 23 1/2 in) Squares/Hexes

EXPO 16078 Vis-A-Vis Wet-Erase Overhead Transparency Markers, Fine Point, Assorted Colors, 8-Count

If I don't have a mini for the monster I need I use a cheap, solid color dice from a big set I bought. Looks like the one I got is no longer being made but this is similar:
Yellow Mountain Imports 42 Polyhedral Dice, 6 Colors with Complete Set of D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20, and D%

Pathfinders Bestiary Box 1 goes on sale for 20 something dollars sometimes, tons of monsters from the Monster Manual at a decent price:
Pathfinder Pawns: Bestiary Box

I wouldn't worry too much about having minis, and terrain, and everything as dnd is more about the imagination and sometimes too much detail at the table can detract from that. My friend runs his campaign mostly "theater of mind" style but has a little tiny dry erase board he draws on to show relative positions and obstacles and it works great.

Hope this helps!

u/Dourasin · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder

Phew This'll be a long a post, but certainly reward to read by the end of it. Playing D&D/Pathfinder really is the Nerdiest, Nerd thing I've ever done, and it is a lot of fun! Watch +DawnforgedCast's Session 0 video and download his checklist here: It's meant for a GameMaster/Dungeon Master, but that checklist will help you out greatly in understanding what you want when starting out in a new group, with or without veteran players. If you aren't able to find a group locally (I don't recommend online groups for your first introduction) then taking up the mantle of leadership as the GameMaster/Dungeon Master, can be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. However, if you're one with a vivid imagination, or are good with thinking on the fly (believe me, it gets better with time) then you'll already have a headstart on the majority of GMs out there. A great beginning module that has a little bit of everything, adventure hook (i.e., reason why your players should be doing this), NPC interaction, wilderness adventuring, dungeon crawling, is the Hollow's Last Hope module for 1st Level Players as it works for both D&D and Pathfinder. You don't really need the print version, since you can download it for FREE at Paizo's website

I greatly recommend you get the Pathfinder RPG: Beginner Box ($25-$35) it is a different game, but the rule set is uber-simplified and honestly, superior to the D&D Starter Set ($15), and is worth the extra money. The Beginner Box literally has the all of the beginning needs for play. Pre-generated characters, blank character sheets for the four classes (Wizard, Rogue, Cleric, and Fighter) with either of the three races (Elf, Dwarf, and Human) that are easy to introduce new players to, a flip out map that you can use dry-erase- or wet-erase markers, and permanent markers on (all of which can be erased off, I use these wet-erase makers that are $9 because I'll draw camp fires with brown, yellow, orange, and red colors, green helps with trees and shrubbery, blue for water, and black for everything else), a Hero's handbook, and really, really, good GM guide, plus thick, cardboard punch-out marker pawns of various Monsters, NPCs, Player characters, and other creatures, that amount to a wealth of miniatures that would take a lot of money and time to paint them all up, plus they're easier to store in the box. Unfortunately, it only comes with one set of dice, so it wouldn't hurt to get these on these 7 sets ($12) on the cheap and pass them out to your players, or if they have their own, then you'll have plenty of extra multiples of dice, which will come in handy during combat with spellcasters and sneak attacks by Rogues. I handed them out to my players after they told me what their favorite colors were. =P

That'd would be all you'd really need to start, $30ish Beginner Box, plus $10 for markers, and $10 more if you or your players need dice. Now, what follows is what I used for my first GMing of a game, based on many different people's recommendations. In order to make combat work in a logical way that I could understand, I bought the Pathfinder Combat Pad $20, along with those wet-erase markers from earlier. It's usefulness has been far better, and worth it's price in gold, to use than a cheap $1 store notebook, when I would have to erase or rewrite when players would defeat monsters or would hold their actions, or would tell them the wrong initiative bonus to start (lol!). Again, rather use a dollar store binder, I bought the Pathfinder GM Screen $16ish, because it was short enough for me to look over rather than 3-ring binders or a paper folder at the actual game table. Speaking the table, I bought the Chessex Battlemats this is a link to the smaller one ($20), since I bought the Megamat ($35), only because I had a large table, and players could use it as a coaster for drinks too (even though I did have coasters, to prevent spillage). As an added bonus, I recently discovered the Condition cards $10, to use with Pathfinder, and they are great to hand out to players (as you would already know these conditions since it's written behind the GM Screen) so they know what condition they are in at a glance. Keep in mind though, you only get 4 or each, so if you are lucky enough to have more players, it wouldn't hurt to buy an extra set (however, it would be strange if all of your players had the same condition).

Now, let's say you enjoy Pathfinder, and you bought the Core Rulebook $20 (if it's a hardcover, always look inside for the Sixth edition printing, the paperback will already be that edition) but are getting tired of looking up Monster stats online, then grab the Paperback version of the first Bestiary $16 which has the great majority of all of the "regular" monsters in either D&D or Pathfinder. If you're not much of an artist, then there's the recently released Pathfinder Traps and Treasures Pawns Collection $25 but be warned that you only want to place on the board AFTER the players find out what it is or after they trip it since it does have text explaining what it is as a trap, and if you're use the treasure ones, make sure you add whatever is actually printed on the tile is IN the list of treasure you give the players, because they can and will ask about, "can't I grab that cup or sword, it's on the tile?" ;)

Lastly, if you enjoy being the GameMaster/Dungeon Master, the storyteller, the world builder, then I'd recommend getting the Pathfinder Gamemastery Guide $15, which again, can be applied to both RPG games. And if you what better weather effects to throw at your party than what is presented in the CRB and GMG, then Pathfinder Ultimate Wilderness $30 has all that you need, and then some, plus some cool spells and tons of new animal companions and familiars for spellcasters alike, and a new shapeshifting melee-fighting class called the Shifter, which is pretty neat to use (albeit, you may want to check out Paizo's website for any official errata or clarifications, just in case). If you want to actually create a campaign and are having a hard time coming up with ideas, locations, groups/factions, kingdoms, races, then one more purchase, which is what +DawnforgedCast used for his Pathfinder games seen here is the Inner Sea World Guide $45 It is pricey, but again, very much worth it, to create your own world or to use the pre-made world, as well. Remember, the Beginner Box, Markers, and Dice is really all you need, the rest of this is to expand out. I hope this helps you and anyone else out as well. =P

u/KWiP1123 · 2 pointsr/DungeonsAndDragons

Solutions I've used in the past:

  • Vinyl battlemats with wet-erase markers (I've had more success with these over dry-erase).
  • Grid paper easel pads or grid paper rolls with your drawing utensil(s) of choice.
  • I used to have a simple tile-based dungeon maker app (I'll see if I can find it once I get home) that would export to an image that I'd then take to Office Depot and have them print on their large format engineering printer. It would usually be <$10 for all the maps needed for a one-shot adventure (B&W only).
  • Similar to above, I had another DM print gridless maps on large-format paper and just said that 1" = 5ft and let us move in any direction.
  • I've even played games simply on 8.5 x 11" graph paper. The DM would draw the map, and lightly draw where we were in pencil, erasing and redrawing when we moved.
  • At PAX, I saw DMs using full-color printouts on regular printer paper, and players and the DM would simply point out and explain on the map where they were and what they were doing, using theater-of-the-mind for everything else.

    There are tons of options, and you can do whatever works for you.
u/aglaeasfather · 2 pointsr/medicalschool

Hi, Actual M2 here.

Everyone will tell you something different. Only way to know what works for you is to actually do it, so be proactive.

That said, don't start studying for Step until 2nd year.

Let me repeat: don't start studying for Step until 2nd year. You simply will not have the knowledge base to do anything productive. Also, likely 50-60% or more of what you learn in your M1 is useless.

You want to do well? Here's what you do:

Whole Year:

Listen to Goljan while you are learning Path. Just do it. The more times you listen by the time you get to boards, the better. Pathoma also helps a TON.

First Semester: Not too much going on here. The real meat of the boards is what you learn in M2, aka what you are learning right now. This is mostly prep time. Get a copy of First Aid. They always publish errata because FA is full of mistakes (don't get me started), so go through the book and make the corrections. Also, get that shit spiral bound at Kinkos, motherfucker.

Near the end of Semester 1, start going through the sections you have already learned, i.e. if you did Micro/Immuno in M1/1st half M2, go over that shit. But don't do it passively. I found DIT to be really helpful for this purpose, because it 1) gives you goals to achieve (i.e. I will do x number of videos today) and 2) fills in the gaps of FA (there are many). YMMV. A note about DIT these guys are from Texas, and idk if it's a Texas thing or if it's a DIT thing but they talk slow as HELL. If you have an iPad, get Swift Player and crank that bitch up to 1.65x when you're watching videos.

Second Semester: Do the same thing, but now step it up. Ideally, get a first pass of FA done by Spring break, and start a QBank. NOW LISTEN CLOSELY it is PERFECTLY A-OK to get a 30% when you first start. I made the mistake of thinking "oh fuck I don't know shit I need to do FA more". Baloney. Keep at it. You learn a ton while doing Qs.

After Spring Break Keep going through FA, turn up the juice on your QBanks. Try to do maybe 1-2 sets (46 qs)/week. The idea is that you will have likely 1/2 of your QBank left by the time you're done with finals.

After Finals High Gear mode activated. Start with a NBME to gauge where your status. Also, from UWorld you will know exactly what your strengths and weaknesses are. Focus on these. Make a third pass through FA. Finish your QBank. Fine Tune. Go over EBM/Biostats the day before the exam. Take the exam. Fuck bitches and drink Cristal. Relax. Enjoy your summer. In that order, please.

Best Resources if you follow this method:

  1. First Aid
  2. UWorld QBank
  3. Goljan
  4. DIT (It's expensive but they do this to keep the pirates at bay so it's justified)
  5. Pathoma
  6. These Mother Fuckers (because FA is stupid and prints their book on paper where every goddamn pen smears like you just sliced open an fucking AAA).
  7. Swift Player for iOS (optional)
  8. Highlighters
  9. Party plan for post-Step 1.

    I think you'll find this to be super helpful. I sure did, wish I had found it earlier.

    Good luck, and for the love of God enjoy your summer and the coming year.

    Remember, everyone's method differs, but no matter what method you use, as you are working at it you are improving your score. Eventually you'll find the most comfortable method for you.

    Edit: one last thing: get a PDF version of FA wherever you can find it. The "index" sucks absolute sweaty dog balls, so the PDF is the best way to search for stuff.

    Edit 2: Clarity in the preamble
u/daintyflower · 2 pointsr/bindingofisaac

Paper: For the clear paper, I've recently been using an acetate alternative called Dura-Lar by Grafix. They USED to carry them at Michaels but you are more likely to find them at locally owned art stores. Link: [Clear Acetate Paper]{

Pen: Next, you'll need an Ultra Fine Sharpie in black (Extra Fine is also acceptable if you can't find Ultra). This will trace the pattern on your paper without smudging it. Link: Ultra Fine Sharpie Permanent Marker

Brushes: You'll also need paint brushes! If you look at the link provided after this, the brown brushes on the left side of the picture are perfect for dabbing in larger areas. The brushes on the right are great for getting into sharp corners or tiny spaces (which these BOI ones did). You don't need this specific set, art stores will have individual brushes that'll work great. Get 5 or so in different sizes. Paint Brushes

Last but not least, you'll want a wide assortment of Acrylic paints. Brands like Cermacoat, FolkArt and Deco-Art Americana are perfect because they're thick enough and vibrant enough. You really want to get a lot of different colors since some you can't mix and match accurately. Link:Cermacoat Acrylic Paint

I'm really bad at explaining things, so here's a YouTube video with the steps (you can fastforward a lot): How to make cel animation

Tips and more thoughts: Trace you design (you'll probably need to go over it twice to make it dark), flip over the acetate and dab the in paint. Dabbing is important because it leaves it thick and doesn't create streaks. Colors will dry lighter or darker, so you can either remove wet paint with a napkin or dry paint by using your fingernail to scrape it off in the specific area. It's okay if you go outside the lines because you can use your nail to push paint back into the right spot.

Hold up the cel to the light and you can see where the paint is thin and needs another coat. Dab in more paint until you cannot see through it when you hold it up.

For the Isaac cells, I drew in all the shaded areas and removed the marker lines with a wet toothpick or hard part of a Q-Tip. Rub it into the marker area and it'll disappear, leaving only the shaded paint:
Polyphemus without the lines removed

Hmm, what else? Oh, use wood toothpicks to paint in sharp corners. It makes them precise and nice-looking if you're removing some lines later!

And finally, a few pictures of progress:
A few cels painted in black and waiting to dry

Dark Bum after he was drawn... if you think that looks weird, you should have seen Polyphemus

Dark Bum almost looks happy to be painted in

Finished the black paint and flipping him over!

If you have any other questions, let me know! Like I said, I'm really bad at explaining things and I've been doing this for a really long time, so I tend to forget to explain steps. These are great for kids to make, and make nice gifts to be framed. They can be quick to make, or take a really long time. The most complex one I made was the album cover to "The Resistance" by Muse and took 6 months and over 100 hours to complete.

u/Xuis · 2 pointsr/longboarding

The process I used is as follows:

First, I cleaned off the bottom of my board using a wet rag. After letting it dry, I laid a lengthy strip of gaffers tape down the middle of the board, making sure it was directly in the center from truck-to-truck.

I then laid parallel strips to either side, slightly overlapping the center strip of tape. I then repeated the process making sure that the overlaps were symmetrical to either side, and that the final side pieces lined up with the edge (rail) of the board. The overlaps don't need to be the same size, it just looks nice.

At this point, there will be tape hanging off the front and back of the board. I placed two shorter pieces of gaffers tape perpendicular to the original strips at the ends of the board (directly next to the trucks), and then used a knife to carefully cut off the tape that was hanging off the board.

After that, I drew on it with a silver sharpie.

I'm sure this would have been easier without the trucks attached, then I could have made it go all the way to the kicks. The great thing about gaffers tape, is that it doesn't leave residue like duct tape.

tl;dr: Put tape on the board so it looks nice, cut off the excess, then draw on it.

u/v-porphyria · 2 pointsr/nexus4

I think covering it up with a bumper case is the best option, but you might be able to try using a silver permanent marker to fix the paint. Something like this:

Assuming you want to avoid adult oriented things - and thing that may be considered shady.

I am also assuming your computer is a laptop or relatively mobile.

My suggesting involves a form of selling. First you must pick a subject that you know very well and then think about questions and answers a novice would have.

For example, I know computers/Internet well. Things a novice might ask are:

  1. How can I set up my gmail/yahoo mail/outlook account so it checks mail in other accounts?
  2. How can I set up my gmail/yahoo mail/outlook so that email certain emails are automatically deleted?
  3. How can I see what programs are using the most memory on my computer
  4. How do I backup my computer?
  5. How can remotely view my home computer desktop from my iPhone?
  6. Etc. etc.

    Come up with a nice long list of questions and solutions. The idea provide quick/succinct computer advice.

    Buy a folding table, folding chair, poster boards, markers, and cookie jar.

    Create Signs:

    Computer Questions Answered! - FREE

    Ask me about Computers - FREE QUICK LESSONS

    Quick Computer Solutions - FREE

    Got an Internet Question? FREE answers

    Pack the computer, table, signs and jar into your car and find a spot with high foot traffic. This could be a downtown street, near public transportation, entrance to your neighborhood, community function (street fair, swap meet), the beach, etc.

    Once you pick your spot, setup shop. Unfold the table, chair and put up your posters. Get the jar out, take off the top and affix a piece of paper that kindly asks for donations. Be ready to demonstrate you solutions on your computer.

    Here is what will happen:

    First, because you are offering the services for free, people will be more inclined to visit your booth.

    Second, everyone has a computer and therefore the topic is familiar. You will have people come by that know their answers and want to see yours. You will have people that are genuinely ignorant about a topic that you can help. You will also have know-it-alls that quiz and grill you.

    The trick is to be a good salesperson. You are offering good advice, for free, but without warranty. "This works for me, it should work for you, but I can't 100% guarantee". If you have a great demeanor, people will appreciate the novel advice and provide you a donation you.


    As an added bonus, I would figure out how to record some of your sessions (web cam?). Then you can post the video with the title "How I made $$$$ quickly...." You can also contact the press describing your adventure and I am sure someone would bite.

    Finally, check out this video (6 mins): Tina Seelig: Classroom Experiments in Entrepreneurship I think you will enjoy it.

Taking adapters in order to use the outlets (depending on where you're traveling from), eat evwrything, and make some great memories. Since you'll be on campus ask the students about things to do, and stay safe! (:

Freshmen, you'll hear this everywhere, but go to class. Join campus clubs and make friends! Study a little every day, rather than waiting until the last minute and cramming. Even 20 minutes a day is better than nothing. Also, watch your drinks at parties, and be super careful. Make sure you have a buddy to watch over you, and take turns being the responsible one.

If you want to remove the labels quickly and cleanly, run a heat gun over them for a few seconds and they peel right off. I usually either remove any sticker with a bar code or redact with a big-ass Magnum Sharpie.

Definitely white. and as /u/MensLeagueGretzky stated, that crest will fill up quick. And if the guys sign small to accommodate the full team, their signatures might look cramped and shittier than they would otherwise be if given the whole front of the jersey to sign.

And black sharpie wouldn't look that bad over blue, but white is just an ideal option for a signed jersey.

Personally I would also just leave the crest clean, but that's up to you. Maybe save it for the bigger names on the team or if you have the chance down the line for legends like Potvin, Trottier, etc.

Or just let Rick Dipietro slaughter it with the thickest sharpie available on the market

I have this fucker and dont let it out of my sight. If someone needs to borrow it i stand there awkwardly until they give it back.

Sad story happy ending, i bent over to pick something up as i was getting on the elevator (our store room is in the basement) one day and my pocket protector spilled and my sharpie rolled right into the crack. About a month later theres a guy there fixing the elevator button that my boss cracked hitting it with the corner of a hotel pan he was taking down to the basement, i asked him if it would be a big deal to retrieve something that had fallen down the shaft. He asks what and i tell him. He reaches into his tool kit and pulls out my sharpie! He said he found it down there like 2 weeks beforehand. Totally made my day.

There are pens that aren't designed to be tactical, but are sturdy enough to be used as a kubotan, e.g. stainless steel Sharpie. I don't think any TSA agent would take a Sharpie from you.

u/SegamanXero · 2 pointsr/funny

Probably not... I had a fancy stainless steel sharpie, I tried very hard not to lose it... But then one day I lost it when shipping a ton of crap at work one night.

I cried a million crys...

I remember a TED talk where Deborah Gordon talked about using "Japanese paint markers" to identify individuals in a colony. A really cool talk: LINK

Based on a search on Amazon, this may be a good start? Water based, non-toxic, water proof: LINK

u/MrCrono666 · 2 pointsr/Gameboy

Heh, I'll admit that I've been rude with such information and that was wrong of me.

I was wronged before, but that's no way to act towards other. I do sincerely apologize, I believe it was in regards to my paint techniques and sealants?

Let me share properly, with easy links! :D

I live by Krylon products, they're the best spray paints for using Posca Paint pens on. My most used Krylon products are:

-Krylon Chalky Finish

-Krylon Short Cuts these are a bit glossy so far, and haven't tested them with the paint pens yet. Will post once I do! Also do SUUUPER LIGHT COATS as it will bubble and look like crap, they aren't meant for plastic :D

-U-Pol Products 0796 Clear CLEAR#1 High Gloss Coat - 450ml for sealant You can apply a fresh coat after 1 hour, gives enough time for it to "cure" and allows you to see how much more you need! I do 3-4 coats for a super glossy finish! :D

-Posca paint pens for drawing me and my wife both live by these things, they're absolutely fabulous.

Again, I do sincerely apologize. We're all human behind these screen names and letters, surrounded by digital information and electricity. I'm no different, and prone to making mistakes.

Hope that helps make things a little better. Cheers man! Again, congrats on a gorgeous system.

To show my true honesty and being sorry, if you send me your system I'll backlight and bivert it - plus ship it back to you for free.

It's not all about the work and business, it's about making good friendships along the way. PM Me if you're interested bro.

u/BrokerKingdoms · 2 pointsr/Warhammer

I wrote the "waaagh" on this using a paint pen from Amazon in no time flat, partly because I don't think Orks write neatly

using is brand:

But any will do, so far as the tip is a fine point. Some paint pens are for writing on vehicles/construction/other arts and crafts and they're far too big for detail work

u/SquaresAre2Triangles · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

You can take them apart by just drilling out the rivets, and I just use spray paint for the base color. You can use some kind of paint stripper (can grab some from your local hardware store or walmart, but something like this) to remove the paint that is on there if you want, but it's not completely necessary, just make sure you do light coats of spray paint so it sticks nicely.

For the details I use paint pens but you could probably use any paint with fine paint brushes.

Then i finish with a glossy enamel clear coat spray, and just be careful not to spray it on too thick or it can make the paint run or bubble up a bit.

Aside from just "how to do it" some tips:

  • It's easy and even if you just want to paint it a solid color it's totally worth it. I haven't done any hot wheels mods before this and my first couple still turned out great.
  • You can always strip the paint again and start over if something gets screwy
  • Wait like a full day between the main painting steps (base coats, wait a day, detail work, wait a day, clear coat) just to make sure it's all good and dry
  • Use gloves when you are doing the detail painting so that oils from your hands don't mess up the base paint
  • I use some clips like this to hold them up. What works great is putting one of the posts from the body of the car into the round hole on the clip, and then clipping it onto a toilet paper tube. Works great as a little handle and stand.

Worst case Ontario, they're available through Amazon Prime right now

D&D Basics (Getting started)

The Absolute Basics

First you will want to grab either the Basic rules (Free), the Starter Set (Cheap), or the Players handbook, Dungeon Masters Guide, and Probably Monster Manual

Then you need to have at least a few items

  • Dice (Phone apps will work if absolutely necessary, or these)
  • Paper & Pencil (for notes)
  • Character Sheet (In the free PDF or an app)

    The starter set is nice because it does a bunch of the work for you, it has an easy to follow adventure, pre-made characters, Dice, and rules for the DM and players. And at half the cost of just the players handbook AND including an adventure, it is an incredible value.

    Once you finish that then looking at at least a players handbook for the extra races, classes, backgrounds, and other things is a good deal. That should let you run free adventures people have put online.

    The DM's guide will let you get deeper into rules and the right way to call them, break them, and make them.

    The monster manual can be a great tool to make better encounters.

    If you want to run a commercial adventure after the one's included in the starter set, "Tales from the Yawning Portal" includes the Sunless Citidel, considered by many to be an excellent adventure for those new to the game and just recently brought up from 3.5e into 5e

    Common Tools of the Trade

    As you start running more complex adventures you are going to want to have a few tools to keep things moving, either as a player or as a DM.

    As a Player

    The bare essentials every players should have are listed above, but most players agree having a few extras can make the game run really quick.

    Spell Cards

    These cards have all the spells available for specific classes or from specific books on really well organized cards that make it easy to set aside your prepared spells and quickly reference all the core details.

    Cleric, Arcane, Ranger, Druid, Bard, Paladin, Martial Powers and Races, Xanathars Guide to Everything

    Binders & Sheet Protectors

    Keeping everything neat and organized can be a huge time saver and make it much easier for you to find what you need. Binders can be a great way to keep your notes and other materials organized. In addition many sheet protectors easily erase dry erase markers making it easy to keep track of spells and other changes without ruining character sheets with constant erasing.

    As a DM

    DMs have their work cut out for them. But a few simple tools can make the game run smooth and leave everyone having that much more fun.

    Index Cards

    A set of index cards can go a long way to speeding up the game. Players can put details on spells or magic items on them. You can prepare loot for the game ahead of time and hand it out allowing players to look over the gear as the game continues. You can also use them to hide portions of a battle map or commerical map to give the effect of fog of war.

    Game Mats

    A game mat let's you make single maps by drawing on them with dry erase or wet erase markers. Many are made of vinyl and can last a long time. Normally they will have either 1" squares or hex shapes.


    These things can be expensive, but giving your game that 3D upgrade and helping players better manage space in a game can be well worth it. You can use actual miniatures (Like those from Reaper), Create custom ones on Hero's Forge, or even just buy some cheap stand in tokens from Game Mash.

    If you just need a cheap way to keep track of positions army men, bottle caps, colored game pieces, and even legos can all play the role.

    No matter what you use, you can pick up colored rubber bands to mark status conditions or other information.

    Where Can I Play?

    You can find tons of places to play D&D.

  • Get together a gaming group.
  • Find a Guild or club in your area.,
  • Most hobby shops and especially comic book and gaming shops offer games, usually Adventure League. WotC offers a tool to find stores here.
  • /r/lfg can be a great way to find others to play online with.
  • Play by Mail sites like RPoL allow you to play by forum post.


    Critical Role - Voice actors playing DnD, Matt Mercer (The DM) is an amazing Dungeon Master and shows how the game should be played.

    Matthew Colville - Amazing videos on being a DM, must watch material for every DM. Even when your opinions differ he gives good reasons and great advice.


    These let you ciew all the free open rules (SRD & Basic Rules) for D&D 5e at no cost.

    Roll20 Compendium - Has all the open rules for the game, so a good source for monsters, items, spells, etc.

    DnDBeyond - A more official source for the content, plus you can buy all the materials released by WotC to use, and has a great character builder.

    Adventures & Maps

    DMsGuild - Tons of free and paid adventures and other materials. The quality can be varying, but many are free and that can be great.

    /r/dndmaps/ - What more can they say, D&D Maps.

    Mike Schley Makes many of the maps for the D&D Adventures.

u/Fauchard1520 · 1 pointr/DnD

Here's what I did.

First, go make your spell cards at this site. Print settings can get a bit wonky, but the cards look cool and the spell lists are fairly complete:

Next, shell out for a cool binder. This one is nice:

Third, buy a load of page protectors:

I chose to sort my spells by level and by alpha order. It's been effective thus far.

Finally, get a bunch of Vis a Vis Wet Erase Markers:

When you prepare spells, you just put a dot on the plastic over that spell. Erase it when you cast.

The only pain so far has be re-alphabetizing spells when I learn new ones. Still, that's a small price to pay for having a literal spellbook at your table.

Edit: Oops! Just realized what sub I'm looking at. Ummm... instead of Perram's spell cards, you could use this one:

Or just buy this malarkey:

u/rivade · 1 pointr/DnD

A bit off topic, but seeing someone who uses erases/rewrites stuff on their character sheet makes me cringe now after I swapped to the below setup.

Brother, buy yourself some cardstock and some sheet protectors and either wet-erase markers with some spray OR dry-erase markers.

Write everything really nice and neat, only write on the sheet when it's a more permanent use, and everything that can change during a session is written on the sheet protector with the marker. I prefer the wet-erase because I can pack up the character sheet between sessions and nothing gets erased, but that's really personal preference.

u/Flynn_lives · 1 pointr/funny

Nope, she used those wipeable markers...these

u/LordPineapple · 1 pointr/electricians

You can get wet erase markers.

u/WhiteIgloo · 1 pointr/DungeonsAndDragons

I started with a thing of crayola washables from walmart (cost like $2) but found they took too long to "dry" and not smudge. So I upgraded to expo wet erase markers when they were on sale. After a couple of seconds you are able to touch the lines you've drawn which means you can add stuff on the fly easily and keep it looking semi nice.

u/wilk8940 · 1 pointr/DnD

I use Vis-a-vis or Staedtler markers. The most important thing is to clean your mat as soon as you can. Do not leave markers on there over night or they will stain. You can also take some rubbing alcohol to it to make sure you get every last bit off.

u/jackchit · 1 pointr/boardgames

What really helped my new players was printing this simplified map and laminating it. Then get a handful of Expo vis-à-vis colored pens. It lets the bobbies keep track of reasonable eliminations, mark possible paths, and better coordinate without informing Jack between rounds.

I strongly recommend wet-erase; dry erase gets everywhere and doesn't hold up when passing the map around.

u/dvrzero · 1 pointr/gifs

Unless it's a sharpie these markers are wet erase, so a damp paper towel it'll come right off. A sharpie might ruin a white board, I've never had to get it off one before.

u/Medarco · 1 pointr/dndnext

I was raised (almost literally) playing with minis and a battlemat. I helped my dad build a magnetic dungeon board set when I was about 7 years old. I played recently with a relatively new group of my college age friends who were doing theatre of mind, and I was miserable.

A lot of actions specifically denote spacing, which is very difficult to do in theatre of mind. Attacks of opportunity, spell/attack range, etc all get kinda weird when it's just spoken and imagined. I am certain that other people are better at keeping track of it all, and more experienced DMs could make it more interesting.

I know I am personally extremely biased, but about half way through the session we were supposed to storm a castle, and there was no way I was going to try to keep the different passageways straight in my head without a visual representation. I went out to my car and brought in my tackleboxes of minis, battlemat, and vis-a-vis markers. The DM was a little apprehensive at first, but most everyone seemed to agree that the minis and mat were far superior after playing for about 10 minutes with them.

One of the player's made this analogy: [Theatre of Mind] is like a text based RPG, while minis and the battlemat is like playing Skyrim.

ninja edit

I didn't address prices. Minis can be very expensive. If you get the pre painted figures, they are unbelieveably costly. Here is a site that has all sorts of figures. Their search bar is amazing.

Here is a link to a battlemat on amazon. It may look pricey (I don't know your budget) but this mat is worth more than you can imagine.

Here is a link to a pack of markers that should do the trick for drawing any kind of terrain/buildings/caves you like. Just dip a spare rag or paper towel in some water, and the lines come right off.

u/AnacondaPython · 1 pointr/EDC

I modified my setup a bit, to accodomodate feedback from other people and to see what works best for me

Somebody suggest to use this knife:

Here's my new setup:


Any dynomighty wallet, just pick a design

Car keys (whatever your carkeys are). If you want a USB stick added on to your keys, use a Micro-HDMI for low profile and convenience


Iphone6, Samsung S6, etc etc. Whatever floats your boat

Pick a small battery charger, search for it on amazon:

Get a retractable cable for your charger if you need too (low profile)

JEAN COIN POCKET (on front right pocket)

That gerber fold up knife

RIGHT MOST JEAN STRAP ( was the front right before)


duck tape

Tape planet had the cheapest prices at $1.54 each


Measuring tape. This one has the lowest profile so it doesn't hurt to sit on, 10' is good enough for almost everything


Get sticky notes, I suggest highland brand 3"x3" since it works for nearly everything you might need sticky notes. I suggest getting both, alternate colors by day

Plain yellow:


Also, get a sharpie too. Fine points are good

Alternatively or ultra fine


that's my current setup

We just took a silver sharpie and numbered the bases of the identical units. We happened to have about a dozen of the old Dread Guard minis and we numbered them 1-10 or so. We did the same thing with the wolf minis, a couple of ogres or trolls, a couple large spiders, etc. This was all back when the D&D minis were in print and readily available. One of the guys bought a boatload of the minis from just about every set. I think he even got a bunch on clearance.

We have a cool guide for choosing a brush pen in our sidebar, so you could always start there. Personally I like to use a pencil and tombow abt brush pens, stabilos, sharpies, copics, eddings and dozens of other pens I randomly find at my local stores. For paper I usually use the cheapest A3 copy paper I can find and only invest in special marker paper when I have some extra money to spend.

From Top Left to Right.

Gearward Compact Survival Cord Mini, 25’

Tucked inside the folds of the cord are: a micro neodymium magnet, a pen spring, a small safety pin.
Have actually used this for: fishing some ladies keys from a grate at the school before the janitor could show up. Also repaired a neighbour’s skate lace with the cord.

Night Ize Inova thumb light (three functions, bright, medium, flash)
Have actually used this for finding a lost earring in a dark movie theatre. Thought I would use it to find the locks on my house and car, but everything is pretty well lit.

Stanley Key Chain Tape Measure
Have actually used this for buying a new sideboard from an antique shop. Knew the measurements of the room and used this to determined it wouldn’t fit in that room. LOL.

Nite Ize inka Mobile Pen
Have actually used this tons of times whether someone doesn’t have a pen, or for myself at the passport office or recently at the lawyer’s office.

Prime-Lite 5-1 Multifunction Keychain with Light
A new addition. I like the full sized Phillips screwdriver bit. Has a flashlight. Used it to open the bottom of my son’s new RC car’s battery compartment. Has a knife, too. Good for package opening. Not much else.

[Nite Ize DoohicKey Keychain Multitool]
Actually used this recently to pry open my frozen gas cap cover.

[Mini Bic Lighter]
To light cigs, mostly. Haven’t needed to start any urban fires. But… I wrapped over it a thin layer of [To-Go Gorilla Tape] ( and generic electrical tape at the base. [I interwove the electrical tape through a generic (plastic coated) paperclip so that it acts as a keychain. Haven’t lost one yet.]. I used the duct tape recently when a poster fell down at my kids’ Christmas recital and I was able to peel a few pieces off for the teacher to put it back up.

[Mini Sharpie Marker]
Used it recently to write a nasty note to a jerk who dinged my car. Also to get an autograph on a menu of an actor you’ve probably never heard of, but who was big growing up in Toronto.

[Generic Folding Travel Scissors]
Sharper than I expected. I recently used this to save the day when my son refused to wear his new Christmas sweater for a family picture because the tags were itching his back. Snip. Problem solved.

[Gerber Dime Micro Tool]
Good to have this as it has pliers, but I haven’t used it other than to pull yellow lego heads out of lego helmets.

[Nite Ize Key Rack Locker]
A good way to keep it all together. These clips don’t lose their… clippieness.

So, I love this little EDC. Will continue to use it, thought I don’t see many ways to improve it!

u/kodemage · 1 pointr/EDC

Black and white surely, something about the lack of color, can't really put a finger on it...

Are you using the paint markers for this one too? Have you considered other media, like acrylic paints?
Also, Posca makes some amazing paint pens. They have a brush tip and really opaque colors. Like other paint pens the paint does dry in the bristles, but with love they surely last a while.

Acquiring blanks/labels

Mailing labels: If you're in the US, go down to your local USPS and pick up a stack of these, they're free. You can go after hours when just the lobby is open if you don't want to be asked why you're taking the whole stack.

You can go down to Staples or wherever and find some "Hello my name is" labels.

Check out Egg Shell Stickers if you want to go all out.

Sign up at DHL to order huge quantities of blank label rolls.

Get creative. Anything that is a label can be painted over. You could find scraps of vinyl, too.

Markers and Pens

Decocolor has always been my fav paint marker.

Sharpie also makes some good paint pens. Be mindful of water-based vs. oil-based if you live in a city with weather.

Uni's Posca pens are also great.


Again be mindful, if you use acrylics they'll run in the rain. You could use spray paint and stencils, or just paint for your backgrounds.

u/Loser_Bug · 1 pointr/JournalingIsArt

Honestly, most of my journals only have 5-10 sentences per page. I do a lot of collage, drawing, and abstract painting.

Here's what I suggest:

Buy some cheap liquid watercolors and some [sponges] ( You can do backgrounds on every page before you start. This helped me build the habit of nightly journaling, and removed the fear of "ruining" a page. Any parts that I didn't like I could collage over!

Start using your own photos as much as possible. One of the easiest ways to do an image transfer is to alter an image on the computer, then print it out on an ink jet printer. I use cheap-ass photo paper for this, while the photo is fresh. Spray it with water, then put face-down and rub it into the page. (A rubber brayer is nice, but a used gift card or other hard object would be fine.)

Did you know that you can buy bulk stickers from [Amazon???] (

I also suggest making a to-go bag. If you make your backgrounds at the beginning of the week, or before you start the journal, this makes it extra easy. Mine has:

  1. [paint markers] (
  2. a few of [these] ( and [these] (
  3. Ephemera (usually from my obnoxious amount of magazine subscriptions, my own drawings, and things I find)
  4. Glue sticks. Lots of folks here are interested in archival quality glue, but I just use Elmer's.

    I often use my journal to annotate from books (I used to do it INSIDE the books, but I found them difficult to read with any new clarity that way, and I'm trying to move to digital.) Since I mostly read self-help/improvement books, that made some great starting points for prompts.

Go with whiteboard and use the dry erase crayons instead of the markers. Chalk dust isn't any better than the markers you're avoiding. Crayola also makes dry erase markers that might be worth trying out.

u/CantEvenUseThisThing · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

Gonna piggyback on you to add that dry erase crayons are pretty great as well. A combination of these with dry erase marker can make terrain that can be changed (a wall is supposed to come down mid encounter? draw it in dry erase marker and just wipe it off!) since the crayon doesn't just wipe away and needs a little elbow grease.

My favorite carry on is [this one] ( -- extra large with long handle. I toss everything in it -- neck pillow, magazine, chapstick, gum, passport, etc. Usually, my purse fits in there as well. It's easy to shove up in the overhead compartment, and easy to grab something out of it.

I'm new, so not too many friends, but I'll give a quick shout out to /u/OPG, who I just found through the random RAoA generator. Hi OPG! You have great nails and major kudos on your keto routine. I keep toying with the idea of trying keto, but get scared off...

I have these erasable highlighters to color code things like appointments and events --- they're amazing. You can also get them in bright colors, and they erase well.

For writing, I use these --- they're ballpoint, so they don't smear as much, and don't bleed through paper.

Artsy for life

I make greeting cards, and while these are technically highlighters, they really take backgrounds to a whole new level. They make words and drawings POP! :D
